Fox News/Kirsten Powers
In a recent interview with The New Republic, President Obama was back to his grousing about the one television news outlet in America that won’t fall in line and treat him as emperor. Discussing breaking Washington’s partisan gridlock, the president told TNR,”If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News…for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.”
Alas, the president loves to whine about the media meanies at Fox News. To him, these are not people trying to do their jobs. No, they are out to get him. What other motive could a journalist have in holding a president accountable? Why oh why do Ed Henry and Chris Wallace insist on asking hard questions? Make them stop!
Barack Obama shows on almost a daily basis that he is little more than a political operative who got elected President by masquerading as a centrist and reelected by repeatedly calling Mitt Romney an insensitive rich guy. No President in the last 50 years has attended nearly as many fund raisers, spent more time on the campaign trail, paid off more financial supporters with government jobs, fired more personal insults at those with whom he disagrees or given more non-substantive interviews. As time passes it will become evident even to the disinterested that Obama is at best a superficial thinker and anything but a leader.
There is so much more but the MSM will not tell you or challenge him, nor will the likes of MSNBC or ABC, or NBC or now they have a new Left wing boss CNN. America needs Fox, Limbaugh, Ingraham, Hannity and O’Reilly, but it also needs to listen and to challenge the Administration.
You want drool, fawning and God like Worship of President Obama then CNN, MesSNBC, CBS and ABC are waiting for you with open arms. If you want a News Organization that asks the hard questions and has no problem mussing up the Anointed One’s hair or make the President cough between cigarette drags; Fox News, Breitbart and El Rushbo will gladly set you up.
