The MSM thinks this the governments job to tell the people what to think, not listen to “We the People”.
Imagine this, on this mornings “Meet the Press” GOP House Speaker John Boehner stated that people have the right to believe what they want when it comes to President Barack Obama whether its correct or incorrect. David Gregory pressed Speaker Boehner during the interview asking him whether it is his repsonsibility to “stand up to that kind of ignorance,”and do the bidding of the President. One would think that the MSM had that job well in hand. Boehner responded, “It’s not my job to tell the American people what to think. Our job in Washington is to listen to the American people.”
From The Blaze:
Boehner continued: “Having said that, the state of Hawaii has said that he was born there. That’s good enough for me. The president says he’s a Christian. I accept him at his word.“ He later called those ”the facts” of Obama’s background.
Gregory asked, “But that kind of ignorance, about whether he’s a Muslim, doesn’t concern you?”
“The American people have the right to think what they want to think,” Boehner replied. “I can’t — it’s not my job to tell them.”
What’s rather curious is that Speaker Boehner takes the President at his word that hie was born in the US and a Christan. However, the same can’t said to be true about Bill Maher. He doesn’t think Barack Oabma is a Christan.
When someone says they don’t think President Barack Obama is actually a Christian, the expectation would be that they think he’s secretly a Muslim. Not Bill Maher. On tonight’s Real Time, in the process of arguing that Obama’s not really a centrist politically, Maher also revealed that he doesn’t think Obama’s actually Christian, either, but rather a secular humanist.
