MSM On Different Planet – Sees Obama Avoiding Devisive Politics


Right now I’m not very optimistic about the future of our country.  Fact is, I’m downright dispondant.  Sure, we have a problem with Obama, but that’s going to work itself out – given natural selection, survival of the fittest, and a normal world.  The problem is the fact that we’re no longer living on Planet Reality.  We’re off on some backwater hell-hole called Planet Obama.

Sometimes you gotta wonder what planet the MSM is orbiting.  It certainly isn’t Planet Reality.

The problem our nation is now facing is the fact that the MSM are the ones keeping Planet Obama in it’s wobbly orbit around the great gaseous star, Oprah. It doesn’t matter what he does, they are going to prop him up.  No matter what.

Liz Sidoti of the AP wrote the following dribble:

“…Barack Obama opened his presidency by breaking sharply from George W. Bush’s unpopular administration, but he mostly avoided divisive partisan and ideological stands. He focused instead on fixing the economy, repairing a battered world image and cleaning up government….Obama overturned a slew of Bush policies with great fanfare….The flurry of activity was intended to show that Obama was making good on his promise to bring change….He decreed…So far, Obama’s only real brush with issues that stoke partisan passions came when he revoked a ban on federal funding for international groups that provide or promote abortions. He did that quietly by issuing a memorandum late Friday afternoon…A picture of poise…Throughout it all, Obama demonstrated noticeable stylistic differences with his predecessor….In one Oval Office ceremony, Obama went through each executive order as he signed them, reading parts of each and methodically explaining them. He even halted a few times to ask for clarification from his White House counsel. That sort of deferral to someone else in a public setting and admission of a less-than-perfect command of the facts was never Bush’s style.”

I guess it takes the UK press to tell the world that

“…Barack Obama picks a fight with Rush Limbaugh as bipartisan spirit crumbles…Mr Obama has told Republicans in Washington to stop listening to the right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh, risking a new culture war with conservative voters. His exhortation came as he enraged other Republicans by reversing George W Bush’s ban on funding international aid to charities that perform or provide information about abortions.

Or the Canadian Free Press:

“…“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.”

With all due respect to the new president, getting “things done” is not in the best interests of America when the “things” are harmful to homeland security, national defense, the economy, and traditional family values.

Perhaps President Obama should stop listening to people like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and other clue less liberals?

Instead, Mr. president, why not try to catch Rush’s show which is on from 12-3 PM every day? Who knows, you might benefit from diversity of opinion and, with a little effort, might become the most famous “ditto head” in all of America!

President Obama also flashed a bit of competitive arrogance which indicates that he is probably better suited to arranging midnight basketball tournaments than serving as America’s commander-in-chief.

From the New York Post, this additional information, in part:

“In an exchange with Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) about the (stimulus) proposal, the president shot back: “I won,” according to aides briefed on the meeting. “I will trump you on that.”

“We are experiencing an unprecedented economic crisis that has to be dealt with and dealt with rapidly,” Obama said during the meeting.”

So, according to President Obama, in the event of an “unprecedented crisis” as defined by a Democrat president, the system of checks and balances built into our form of government are null and void?…”
