Obama Lies, Press Yawns



President Barack Hussein Obama finally took a few questions from his campaign staff, whoops, I mean the White House press corps yesterday.

He was asked about the sleazy campaign he’s running.

Obama responded:

“Nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon. We point out sharp differences between the candidates, but we don’t go out of bounds.”

But of course, Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s cutsie thuggish deputy campaign manager, did accuse Romney of precisely that, being a felon.

“Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony, or he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments.”

Did any of the famously objective journalists point out that the President of the United States was misrepresenting the facts, AKA lying?

Better question: Are the liberal media in the tank for Barack Hussein Obama?

To date Obama and his surrogates have accused Governor Romney of being a felon — odd that the IRS does not seem to notice — of being a murderer, and planning to put blacks in chains.

But none of this is out of bounds, right?

    This is the way it has always been. The free press has an individual and a collective agenda. Fifty years ago in school at friend of mine wrote an analysis of the War Between The States from the narrow perspective of local sourthern based newspapers and their editorial policies. They all read like the Rsnd Brooks character in Gone With The Wind. I suppose the point is, just because you’ve got a job writing about or broadcasting the news doesn’t mean you have anything of substance to contribute. When these people tell you what, when, where, why and how, maybe okay, but be careful of ‘why’. Otherwise, who are they…?

      Addenda To My Post:

      The Rand Brooks character, Charles Hamilton, continually repeated the refrain, one southerner can like a dozen yankees. In other words, mindless, but heartfelt, doggerel.

    Quote from Joseph Paul Goebbels
    “During a war, news should be given out
    for instruction rather than information.”

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    I think this sums up a lot of speech by BHO & crew.

    Well, I guess I have to correct myself. Apparently they aren’t telling the WH Press Corps what to ask but local TV reporters:

    The White House is doing something with its local TV interviews that it could not easily get away with in encounters with the White House press corps, which President Obama has been studiously ignoring: choosing the topic about which President Obama and the reporter will talk.

    In interviews with three local TV stations Monday, two from states critical to Obama’s reelection effort, Obama held forth on the possibility of “sequestration” if he and Congress fail to reach a budget deal, allowing him to make his favorite political point that Republicans are willing to cause grievous harm to the economy and jobs in order to protect the rich from tax increases.
    Although other than Jake Tapper who is really aggressively questioning him?

    A rhetorical question if ever there was one 😉

    Here is a list of Obama’s historical accomplishments:

    It would be interesting if the Romney campaign could start to get aggressive and call out Obama on all the things he has done, and on all the things he has not done, but said he would do.
    (His pre-Presidential promises on Sudan and the suffering of non-Muslim Black Africans, and subsequent inaction,  has been enough for even George Clooney to be disgusted with him.)

    There is more than enough in Obama’s record that is not even remotely out of bounds, and if the Romeny campaign made use of it, and publicized enough on Fox and in ads,
    then in would result in a powerful irrefutable message that no objective person would even think of voting for Obama.

    (Unfortunately, objectivity, is not a strong point of the Liberal Left.

    And I am reading on Drudge just now that the WH actually tells the reporters in the WH press pool – what to ask.
    Reminds me of one of those 1930s movie synchronized choreographies

      No, the reporters at the local press conferences, not the WH press pool.

        The WH guys don’t get to ask any questions at all. The “transparent” president holds very very few press conferences.
