Obama’s Fox News Jihad

Obama has been attacking Fox News for eight years, and in a new interview with Rolling Stone blamed Fox in part for Americans’ rejection of Hillary Clinton — and of Obama’s own policies.

“Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in the country,” Obama said.

I know, it’s hard to take the blame for things oneself. I mean, it can’t be that people disagree with Obama, right?

Is it possible the president doesn’t see that Fox is just one boat in a sea of liberal mainstream news? Of course he doesn’t, because liberals don’t recognize their opinions as liberal. Just good, unbiased fact.

Trump as president will launch searing attacks against the media. It concerns me. I don’t think the government should be attacking the press — or any private citizens — even though the press is unfair. I think liberal bias should be fought with more conservative media, which is something that’s been happening. But when Trump attacks journalists, remember that Obama and his minions led the way.

Obama: Everybody Loves Me and I Didn’t Cause Trump

President Obama Tuesday claimed Americans agree with his “worldview” and that he isn’t responsible for Donald Trump’s victory. Obama spoke during a press conference with Greece’s prime minister in Athens. Throughout my presidency, I’m sure as a matter of convenience, I generally haven’t paid a lot of attention the polls. But since your question’s directly related… Continue Reading

Obama: “We Have to Compete Everywhere. We have to Show Up Everywhere “

Seems like a bit of a dig at Hillary. President Obama today emphasized the importance of retail politicking, something Hillary Clinton has never shined at. Her schedule was light on campaign appearances and long on attending fundraisers and making phone calls for money. She was, frankly, outhustled by Donald Trump, and comparatively, outhustled by Obama’s… Continue Reading
