OBAMA SNUBS MEDIA AGAIN: ‘CLEAR OUT THE PRESS SO WE CAN TAKE SOME QUESTIONS’
If it mattered, the dismissive way Obama treats the media coupled with his lack of transparency would be troubling. But it doesn’t matter. Even if the president was as transparent as glass, the media would still cover up anything that might politically damage him. So the fact that Obama treats the media like the lackeys they are is actually very amusing and all kinds of satisfying.
The media’s been whining about “access” for 10 days now and as a result, today, Obama pretty much laughed in their collective faces with this:
“What I want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions.”
As the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple points out, just two weeks ago, Obama bragged about heading the most transparent administration ever. Today, though, Obama inflicts a little more Battered Media Syndrome on his lapdogs by treating them like the stenography pool in front of… the whole wide world.
Let me repeat: If the media want respect, instead of whining about their precious one’s dismissively abusive treatment of them, the media instead should demand respect from Obama by holding him accountable for things like lying about and demagoguing the sequester, Libya, the economy… In other words, actually do their job as guardians of the country instead of Palace Guards.
Naturally, though, the media will continue to take Obama’s abuse, whine a little, and then come back for more.
You know, because they know Barack loves them and that he really wants to change and is trying to change and that he can’t help the way he behaves sometimes because he’s under a lot of pressure being awesome.
Now a special message to Christians who support Obama: Today He is laughing at you.
By Mario Murillo
A painful reality awaits all of you Christians who voted for Obama. Today he is laughing at you. Unless the election was rigged as I suspect, your vote had a hand in placing a great instrument of evil in the highest office. Today, Obama took a dramatic step forward in his reign of terror by kicking the press out. Knowing the media loves him he moves on and casts them out like a battered wife. And he is betting that you are dumb enough to keep supporting him.
Benghazi was worse than Watergate and he got a pass. His dramatic performance and lies on the Sequester should have allowed Michelle to get him the Oscar for best actor. Republicans are once again poised to roll over and get zero tax cuts, zero spending cuts and certain bankruptcy. All which is brought to you in part by Christians who knew only that they would get money from the government.
What does that mean to you as a Christian? It means that he has removed another key limitation to his power. He is testing the waters to see if he can tell lies without as much as a fact check. And he is betting that you are dumb enough to keep supporting him. How will your government check look after he closes the doors of your church or when he begins arresting pastors for trying to stop him?
Now that he has proven he can avoid the press and they will still love him he is even more dangerous. It means he can step on the gas on his agenda against Christians and Israel.
Dear Christian Obama supporter, today he is laughing at you.
