Media serenade Obama

  • Follow Letters

Have you ever felt something wasn’t right but you didn’t know why? That’s the feeling regarding this administration that the mainstream media love and sing praises to every day.

This administration has used extremely negative rhetoric toward conservatives who only want to slow down out-of-control spending, bigger government and government control of our lives. This rhetoric has contributed to one of the most contentious governments in our lifetime – but the media sing praises. Right after Congress reached their deal to re-open the government and raise the debt ceiling, the president made an intentionally inflammatory comment: “if you don’t like a particular president, go out and win an election.” The media praised.

They passed Obamacare with a 100 percent partisan vote when they had a majority in both houses of Congress instead of focusing on the economy and jobs. Then there are the Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS and Department of Justice scandals, which all appear to either attempt to deceive the public or silence conservative voices during an election. The media praised.

This administration is determined to demonize the Republicans who are doing the job they were elected to do: slow down the disaster known as Obamacare, and force some discipline in spending within our government. No responsible American believes that continuing to borrow money to fund more waste in our government is the right thing to do. However, this administration, with a lot of help from the media, wants voters to think that conservatives who want to stop it are the bad guys. Additionally, they want us to think that the liberals – who want to spend our money, gain more control of our lives, force everyone to depend on the government and tax us more to do so – are the good guys.

Something’s not right – and the mainstream media keep singing praises.

This love affair is the exact

This love affair is the exact reason Obama gets away with simply denying the existence of anything wrong. They simply won't follow through on any negative report about Obama!!

He recently denied knowing about our spying on our allies. Why? Because he knows darn well, all he has to do is publicly deny any knowledge of it and the story will die! Why? Because the mainstream media will MAKE it die; by not reporting on it anymore. Yes, of cousre; Fox News and Glen Beck will go on for weeks and weeks attacking the President for his lack of accountability; but most folks will believe that is just bias coverage of a "no big deal" story. It's happened with EVERY and I mean EVERY scandal the last four years!! Just deny it and it will go away!!

So, once again; the President will continue to get away with running a dismal government which lacks ANY accountability or responsibility. Having the media in his pocket, all he has to do is deny ANY and ALL knowledge of wrong doing and that's the end of it.

In socialist/facist/communist dictatorships throughout history; what was usually the first thing they took control of? Answer=Media!! They took control of print newspapers and also picture movies. They wouldn't allow anything to be published that was negative towards the regime!!

Well said myfather15. We are

Well said myfather15.
We are in the mist of a political coup perpatrated by marxist democrats and enabled by the so-called mainstream media. This sort of take over of ever aspect of our lives up to the point of confiscation of every dime individuals produce can only result in revolution.
The people running our federal government are truly evil. Bold face lies are either covered up or dismissed by the media. Freedom of the press has been hyjacked by leftist media sympathizers. They are using the First Amendment as a weapon to further their Marxist agenda. Freedom loving people need to realize this an turn those voices off the TV and stop reading anything they spew out in news papers.
IF enough freedom loving people vote to stop these people we can restore this republic. IF we do not, America's destruction is certain.

really?

If you would actually take the time to look at the mainstream media websites over the past week, you'd see that they are full of critical stories about the Obamacare startup problems and the NSA spying scandal. I'm sure that it must be satisfying to criticize the media, but these criticisms do not seem to be founded on reality.

It only took them 5 years to come around after their love affair with this radical Marxist. I guess the overwhelming crap that has built up over this time is too large to hide now. But there are still some who are trying to still cover for the "O" hole who "was not aware, was not told, only recently found out about it, read in the news papaer yesterday. On and on and on. He is either a pathological liar or he is the most incompetent president ever.

Let's just take the bark off of this.

If Obama had been white he never would have got the Democratic nomination and Hillary would have had her "turn". It was "White Guilt" as termed by the excellent black author, Shelby Steele, that caused the vast majority of people voting to vote for him. They and the media had to "prove" to themselves and others that they were not "racists" in that they could vote for a black man for president. This even though there was nothing in his background which qualified him for an executive job much less that of President of the United States.

Where were these people when Herman Cain was running? They were out there making up lies and doing all they could to tear him down because he was a black who had escaped the liberal plantation by hard work and merit rather than quotas.

Rhetor The ONLY REASON the press is on him about the NSA is because 22 countries ,including Germany and Spain are going to the UN and it is a BIG international stink. Tha Obama care Debacle is being covered because it is to big to hide! 500 people killed in Mexico and one US boarder agent by 2,0000 weapons smuggled in by the US nothing to see their folks ,Holder lying is OK! Political opponents attacked by the IRS, no problem. Need I go on .

Finally

The love affair is fading...but that usually happens after a few years...this man should never have been President...we know that.

He couldn't even be selected ceo of a large company.....no experience to speak of, just a suit with some choice words when reading off a nearby prompter....BUT...our uneducated masses voted for him.....& will do so again in the near future......they will vote for the promise of freebies & the promise of a good life...it is not over yet.

60 minuets has reported that Benghazi was a planned attack. The first week after the attack military analysts were reporting it was coordinated with covering fire and coordinated mortar fire. The folks at 60 min just had a BFO , "blinding flash of the obvious "!

SeenitB4, yes they will vote

SeenitB4, yes they will vote for him again dispute the fact that they have lost in every economic category monitored. The hits are going to get worse as the inflation from $7 trillion dollars in debt kicks in! We have 90 million out of work, unemployment higher than when he took office foreign affairs in shambles and our health care system screwed up beyond belief with billions of dollars wasted!

Brace for impact boys and

Brace for impact boys and girls.

We are all on the economic runaway train headed straight for hell, with Obama at the helm, and Harry Ried and Nancy polosi stoking the boiler. And as we careen off the tracks into the fiery abyss amid the screams of horror and disbelief coming from the passengers, the media chorus can be overheard chanting. Go Obama, Go Obama, Go Obama, It is a scene right out of Dantes Inferno.

News Flash this

News Flash this AM........Back in 2010 Obama and the Democrats already knew that 60% or more of the people who had private insurance would LOSE THIER INSURANCE under Obamacare. Yet he and ALL of the other Democrats CONTINUED TO TELL THE LIE that "if you like your insurance you can keep it." THEY KNEW. THEY KNEW YOU WOULD BE FORCED OFF OF YOU CURRENT POLICY AND WOULD HAVE TO BUY A MORE EXPENSIVE OBAMACARE POLICY.

Obama....the smiling LIAR.

So far anyone in Obama

So far anyone in Obama administration from Obama, Holder, Cebelius, Lerner, etc. either blames someone else, won't talk, or just lie. This is transparent government. Oh another lie. Even if I were supporting Dems this go round I wouldn't anymore after I realize their words mean nothing and they take no responsibility for their actions.

I love listening to the media

I love listening to the media now reinterpret what Obama has been stating about the ACA the last 4 years. He didn't really say you will be able to keep your present insurance and present doctor. Good grief what a bunch of retards. But there will be a retard who will eat that crap up.

And find an actual reliable news source like Al-Jazeera.

They usually don't like my suggestion. :<

We had Congressional

We had Congressional investigations ad nausea over Bush lied about WMD in Iraq. Now we need Congressional investigations of Obama lied and misled Americans about the ACA which is way more costly than the Iraq war. He has to be held accountable for such a terrible lie-just like we tried with Bush. Justice must be served as liar is held accountable and removed from office.

We need to subpoena Obama's

We need to subpoena Obama's education records cause likely he lied about that too and has no education-another Ward Churchill-like fraud. This is the most unorganized and inept administration of my lifetime. He has lied about every major "phony" scandal. Yep like now he has any credibility at all. I use to tell my students never lie to me cause you will instantly lose my respect and always be suspect.

There is no defense and no doubt our president is a big fat liar. They should paint em blue with orange hair like the movie-because he is just as big a joke now with absolutely no credibility. We have to remove Obama because now even the big idiot Biden has more credibility.

Now Steny Hoyer, the House Democratic Whip admits he knew that people would lose their insurance. These people don't care if they lie, cheat or steal as long as they win. Bla Bla Bla does the raise the level of discourse for many on the left, I am glad to see it! At least it isn't lies and decite like the House Whip Steny Hoyer and "our " President!

The only reason the drooling lap dog media

is now even slightly interested in taking a serious look at this abomination crouching in the White House is that the giant toad had the unmitigated audacity to spy even on them, yet they still sing his praises and yodel down anyone who calls for journalistic honesty and professionalism.

We're actually kind of fortunate that Augusta has some journalists with critical thinking skills still intact.Hopefully they don't get audited out of existence.
