CBS News has released a small piece of the Face the Nation interview with Bob Shieffer. Wait until you see this, Obama blames blogs and the cable media for driving passions in the healthcare debate rather than Obama’s socialist, big government take over.
Barack Obama, was it not those same blogs and cable news who outed Van Jones and ACORN? Driving passions? The blogs and certain cable news are getting the job done for the rest who are in the tank for you.
This President is the most LEFT radical president the United states has ever seen who had no issue with having a self proclaimed communist as a czar.
Obama stated, Healthcare has become a proxy for “BIG GOVERNMENT”. The worry of healthcare grows out of a government that is getting too large. Really? No duh! That would be called socialism Mr. President.
No Mr. President, the blogs and cable news [Fox News] are the last bastion of free speech and the spread of ideas that you do not control. Why else would you not go on Fox News this Sunday when you would make appearances on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN … What’s the matter Obama, are you afraid to actually face a tough question and be challenged? What a sad excuse for a Commander & Chief when we have one that is afraid to face tough criticism. Then again, that’s how you were elected by having the MSM never vet you.
From Hot Air Pundit:
“I think that what’s driving passions right now is that Health Care has become a proxy for a broader set of issues about how much Government should be involved in our economy, even though we’re having a passionate disagreement here, we can be civil to each other and we can try to express ourselves acknowledging that we’re all patriots, we’re all Americans and not assume the absolute worst in people’s motives..
One last point I got to make Bob and that is I do think part of what’s different today is that the 24 hour news cycle and cable television and blogs and all this, they focus on the most extreme elements on both sides, they can’t get enough of conflict, it’s cat nip to the media right now and the easiest way to get 15 minutes of fame, is to be rude to somebody.”
The best analysis to Obama media fatigue was made by Bob Shieffer; however, much he has been on [MSM], he [Obama] has not made the case and the country is still skeptical of Obamacare.
Lindsey Graham, SC-Sen, would later say on Meet the Press that Barack Obama has been on every network shilling Obamacare but the Food Channel.
The Gateway Pundit reminds as that that CBS continued to echo Obama’s talking points of Obama’s unrealistic and dishonest claim that his health care program:
CBS repeated Obama’s unrealistic and dishonest claim that his health care program would not raise taxes on anyone in the middle class. Of course, that is not what Obama said just two years ago. In a speech he gave in April 2007 Obama said that health care reform “would require tax hikes” and that “savings are just a theory.”
