THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENT WHO THINKS ALL MUST AGREE WITH HIM OR ELSE …
America, want to know why “We the People” have a First Amendment and there is “Freedom of the Press”? Our Founding Fathers provided us with these liberties to prevent exactly what Barack Obama is attempting to do in bullying the media not to question his policies and agenda. Greta Van Susteren references this very notion as she stated, ”apparently President Obama wants his usual media pass and Fox challenges his policies – which happens to be the media’s job.” Believe it or not America, it is American to question your leaders.
The ultimate bully
This was in response to President Barack Obama’s interview with The New Republic where he called out FOX News and Rush Limbaugh for being the problem with the dysfunction in Washington, DC and the gridlock due to GOP obstruction. Obama claimed that it if FOX News would not punish and bully Republicans when they do compromise, that things would be different. Does some one need to inform Obama that it is the media’s role to always question our government, not agree with them? But for Obama, the Imperial president, who seems more comfortable acting as a dictator than he does working under the confines of the US Constitution and our Republic.
President Obama in response to a question about working with Republicans: “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it. I think John Boehner genuinely wanted to get a deal done, but it was hard to do in part because his caucus is more conservative probably than most Republican leaders are, and partly because he is vulnerable to attack for compromising Republican principles and working with Obama.
The same dynamic happens on the Democratic side. I think the difference is just that the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word. And I think at least leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done.
Greta Van Susteren went on to call out Obama and Democrats for the bullies that they really are. Which plays into the age old adage that we have known all along that if you are accusing some one else of doing something, you yourself are probably the guilty one. Who does not believe that Democrat leadership pressure and intimidate their members not to go on Fox News and if they do are provided pro-Obama talking points?
And do you know what else? Brace yourself for this one! Some Democrats have told me that they want to come on Fox to discuss issues but they get heat from their Leadership for appearing on Fox. Does President Obama know that? So which Party is intimidating its members? And to say Senator Harry Reid is willing to compromise is just wrong. He has not allowed a budget to get to the Senate Floor for years to even begin a discussion. The budget process is where all compromise begins and ends and ended it before it even got started.
This is not the first time that Obama has done this. From the outset that have tried to marginalize and prevent Fox News from having the same access as the rest of the complicit, corrupt media complex. Otherwise known as the Obama propaganda machine.
