As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

In His Grand Return, Obama Slams Conservative Media

President Obama Monday suggested conservative media prevent Americans from having “a healthy debate.”

“Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward,” Obama said during an appearance in Chicago.

Conservative media arose because the only thing you could find in much of the mainstream media was liberal bias. That, for Obama, was neutrality and healthy debate. Now that conservatives have platforms to make their arguments, he doesn’t like it much.

  1. Obama is a clever statesman. He disguises the narrative by ingeniously claiming that not all “folks” get to have their voices heard, that we all hole up with our kindred souls and thus, we fail to have a cohesive debate.

    Funny…. in 8 years of Obama, I don’t recall a varied debate on anything…ever.

  2. We understand he’s been abroad and on vacation, but surely he had access to the Internet or the radio or TV somewhere.
    He had to hear of the lib colleges refusing to allow a different point of view to be spoken on their campus grounds.
    He might have missed his Dem Chairman announcing that any pro-life citizen will not be accepted in the Dem arena.
    Oh well, let’s hope some staffer will catch him up on the restrictive attitude of the Dems – in congress and among the citizenry.
    Until then, we don’t want to hear his opinions.
    Or see a photo of him or his family.
    Or learn what he’s doing.
    or whatever.

    • SRDEM: keep in mind, Leftists are centrists, centrists are neo-cons, and anything to the right of that is stupid, ignorant and undeserving of an opinion.

      If we think like they do, it all makes sense. Of course, that would be unthinkable. But you know us dummy conservatives, we just hate people.

      • Long ago a priest friend defined hell as everyone was exactly the same.
        We need to reel in the hateful violent libs in order to have the possible, possibility of a debate.

    • Looks like the rat came out of it’s hole. Sure he’s hitting the bong twice as hard. No one gives a rat’s a$$. Where is Valjar? I know she lives with them. The 0’s can’t live without her.

    • It’s not actually ‘let them’, it’s the reality that we can’t plant the kids in the back yard till they’re 18. It takes very little time to score these days….even with phone gps, snooping, listening to their conversations, grounding them….0 was free to do his hearts desire of all available drugs.

  3. I always pray that the Lord will make the words of those who wish to destroy America, as nothing more than gibberish, unintelligible to the human ear.
    It seems the Lord is answering my prayers.

  4. Not too much of a conservative media left over at Fox.

    As long as the topic is Obama, check this out in Politico. Very lengthy and excellent investigative report about the 7 “civilians” released from Iran under Obama and at the time of the Iran deal.

    “Politico even includes a fact check at the end of the piece comparing Obama’s claims about these seven (actually 21) “civilians” (actually spies and illegal arms smugglers) that he released.”

    Obama’s Hidden Iran Deal Giveway by Josh Myers. It is lengthy and excellent. Kudos.

    Perhaps Myers can catch Obama’s next appearance and ask him about it, since Barack is encouraging open discussion.

    Also, anybody know if that American Iranian pastor has been released?

    • The link leaves out the word hidden. Oooops. ?

      It is Obama’s Hidden Iran Deal Giveway : By dropping charges against major arms targets, the administration infuriated Justice Department officials — and undermined its own counterproliferation task forces

  5. “Now that conservatives have platforms to make their arguments, he doesn’t like it much”

    Understatement of the week, KK, maybe of the month. LOL

  6. All I can think is that it was “white hope” that put him in office and it was “white guilt” that kept him in office. I can think of no other reason why this fool became president twice!

  7. As long as O is given press conferences and photo ops, his endless, patronizing sermons will not stop. MSM is not going to call him out. They have entirely too much time, money, and effort invested. It will be up to those who are able to discern the truth from lies and neutrality from bias to effectively end the “reign” of O.
    It was done with Clinton, it can be done with O. Rebut with facts and clarify his ambiguous remarks. Point out his discrepancies and hypocritical statements with those same facts. Over time it does begin to sink in.

  8. Long vacation, comes back with the same tired stale blabbity, blabbity; if only we just had state controlled media and internet, everybody would agree with the democrap agenda. They never want to put in any hard work to promote and argue for their causes…they rely on insults, blame and hysterics and let us not forget, violence.
