RUSH: Why should Obama even bother going to the border when you have a news agency that will actually lie and say that you have been? I am holding in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers a printout of a post by Michelle Malkin at Twitchy. Reuters has actually posted an out-and-out lie. There is a picture of Obama standing on the edge of a wooded area, also known as a forest. There is a giant American flag in the background. In the lower right-hand corner there's a group of starstruck young people watching the president speak from the presidential podium.
And the headline is: "President Obama Visits the Border." Well, why bother going to the border when you have news agencies that will lie for you and tell their readers that you've been when you haven't been? "Reuters, Yahoo Busted for Bogus Headline About Obama at Border," complete with pictures. The picture was taken in Denver. The picture was taken in Denver, which is landlocked. We do not have a national border anywhere near Colorado. Colorado is not a border state.
But if you scroll through the Reuters slideshow posted at Yahoo News you're gonna see pictures of Obama in several places, none of which could remotely be considered the border, and this slideshow is headlined with, "President Obama Visits the Border." I kid you not. So why even bother going, if you're Obama, when you've got suck-up, sycophant lying news agencies that will tell their idiot, stupid readers that you were there? Why bother going?
RUSH: So I just saw another picture that is running at Yahoo News via Reuters with the headline, "President Obama Visits the Border." This picture is Obama deplaning, just walking down the steps, getting off of Air Force One, and the headline of the picture -- not a caption, the headline of the picture as though it's a news story -- is: "President Obama Visits the Border." It's an out-and-out lie. Both pictures are from Colorado. Well, one may be from Texas when he getting off the plane in Texas.
But the other, in front of a wooded area with a big American flag and the presidential podium and a little audience off to the right? It's a picture taken in Denver! Obama hasn't been to the border, and yet Yahoo News and Reuters are running two different photos with the headline: "President Obama Visits the Border." Okay, well, two can play this game. So Obama visits the border when he isn't there?
Well, let's just say that Obama has recorded a commercial that runs in Mexico and in Central America. It would go like this... (playing of parody ad) Yeah, it's a radio commercial. Obama's running it in Central America, saying, "Don't come, but do." Right along with Reuters and Yahoo's: "President Obama Visits the Border."
Hell, I guess I must live on the beach then!
These kind of stories are used because they do work with the low information voter.
I know some elderly people who think if something is reported or shared on network news that is it authentic gospel information. Not saying elderly people are all like this by no means.
MSM lied?? seriously??
no way dude!!
Interesting. He must be taking heat for not visiting border if they are lying for him again.
Maybe that is why the BLM is interested in the land along the Red River in TX..They’re moving the Border, giving TX to MX, and haven’t bothered to tell Texas. I guess it will be one of his Executive Orders.
Hey, you can't expect them to care about this unimportant stuff when it takes away from their american idol and twilight saga DVD watching time. Obama said he's fixing it, so it's fixed.
After Malkin busted them & Rush aired the lie:
And some are saying this isn't even Austin!
They come from an era when you could generally trust the media. You know, like when the press was briefed about military matters in World War II but would not go to press with it until after the operation had begun.
Hey Senate...how bad are you going to let it get???
The media started lying the day that Gutenberg invented the printing press.
And half the American public still has its head up its anal exit passageway, and says “Oh, he’s so good. He cares”
He was at the border of Austin and the rest of Texas. lol
That is not Austin...
I have no way of knowing, but what if he has HIV? That might explain why he won’t expose himself to diseases no matter what, if his immune system is destroyed.
I did a yahoo search for “president Obama visits the border”
At the site it says “president Obama visits Austin”. Guess they changed the headline but not the name of the shortcut.
Did you see the babe on Fox arguing with Rove about how far it is to the border? Fox had up a graphic showing it as 302 miles. Rove explained to her that McAllen is 300 miles but Brownsville is closer to 400. Actually, it’s 350.
But the info babe was getting pissed. She said “I was married in Wimberly and my husband is a Texan so I know a little about the state.” Wimberly is filled with weirdoes. That explains a lot about her.
Looks more like Denver...what difference does it make? He will figure out where he was when he sees it on the news.
But the info babe was getting pissed. She said I was married in Wimberly and my husband is a Texan so I know a little about the state. Wimberly is filled with weirdoes. That explains a lot about her”
Not so sure about that, she is married to a recently retired Lieutenant Commander (Navy Seals) Her wedding was held on a Ranch where they served Hambugers and Magarita’s at the reception. She sound pretty down to earth and the Husband is probably right of center.
Barry may have visited a Taco Bell in Austin but that’s about as close to the border as he got.
Oops, forgot to mention the Acnhor married to the Lt Commander is Jenna Lee.
This is the best Summer I’ve had since I was a kid. The Democrats and the news media are staggering around like a bunch of drunks trying to play hopscotch.
It probably isn't Austin. I've never seen that many tall pine trees in one location here in the past 40 years.
Jenna Lee is preggers and sometimes those hormones just refuse to be questioned!
All I know is Wimberly is full of weird people.
