Obama’s failures? All because of the damned Fox News.

by editor on January 22, 2010

Damn that Fox News. It's all their fault. All of it.

Amid all the truly bizarre excuses that left wingers have offered up to explain the failures of The Greatest President In History, a website called Newshounds has jumped out in front of the pack.

Existing, apparently, to “watch FOX so you don’t have to,” the website finds anything and everything Fox related vile and evil and every other combination of those four letters. They hope that in 2010 President Obama “Will Do A Better Job Dealing With Fox News”.

They point out that an article in New Yorker contained “an admission that one of the reasons Sarah Palin’s ‘death panel’ remark was able to take hold is that the White House thought it too idiotic to deal with. One imagines they won’t be making that same mistake going forward.”

The article goes on to say “Let’s hope so. I’d argue that most, if not all, of Obama’s stumbling blocks last year were at least partly a by-product of his failure to adequately address the right-wing masters of media messaging.”

Really? All of those gaffes, blunders and downright disasters over the course of the last 12 months were because Obama didn’t attack Fox News enough?

Well, there’s hope (and maybe even some change) for the folks at Newshounds.

Dan Pfeiffer, the guy who replaced Anita Dunn as White House Communications Director and Official Fox News Basher, has apparently learned his job well, stating in an interview with the New York Times that, “I have the same view of Fox that Anita [Dunn] had, which is that Fox is not a traditional news organization. They have a point of view. That point of view pervades the entire network both the opinion shows, like Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly, but also through the newscasts during the day.” The Times added that “Pfeiffer also said that the White House doesn’t ‘feel an obligation to treat them like we would treat a CNN or an ABC or an NBC or a traditional news organization’ but will have officials appear on the network sometime.”

You go, Dan. With a little hard work, you may raise Fox News’ ratings even higher than Dunn did.

And we’re guessing that would make some heads explode at Newshounds.

Say, anyone see a pattern developing here?

Obama’s Envoy “Rashad Hussain” to Islamic Bloc Admits Controversial Statements About Supporter of Terror Group.

Next, On Dec. 16, President Barack Obama’s signed an executive order “Designating INTERPOL as a public international organization entitled to enjoy certain priileges, exemptions, and immunities.” Why?

Next, we have the three Navy SEALs who face assault charges for capturing one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq. Why?

Next, The White House is not responding to questions about House Minority Leader John Boehner’s (R.-Ohio) renewed call for the resignation of Harry Knox, a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Knox is the director of the religion and faith program at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s most prominent homosexual rights group.

Next, President Obama appointed Ron Bloom, “Manufacturing Czar” who cites Chairman Mao as a political guide.

Next, President Obama appointed Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director. She stated in an address to high school students this past June that Chairman Mao Tse-tung was one of the two “philosophers” she most often turns to.

Next, WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 /Christian Newswire/ — Christian faith leaders stunned by reports that President Obama would have an ornament of the image of Mao Zedong hanging on the White House Christmas tree.

Next, Valerie Jarrett helped to hire Van Jones, the self admitted Communist.

Next, Valerie Jarrett also recruited Cass Sunstein into the administration. Obama appointed Sunstein as “regulatory czar” to direct the White House Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. You remember, this is the guy who wants to establish legal ‘rights’ for livestock, wildlife and pets, which would enable animals to file lawsuits in American courts.

Next, it’s John Brennan, President Obama’s national security deputy, thinks Gitmo jihadi recidivism is “not that bad.”

Next, Obama’s relationship with Anti-Israel activism people like Rob Malley (Foreign Policy Advisor). Malley is the Director of the Middle East/North Africa Program at the International Crisis Group (ICG). Malley’s Camp David propaganda has also become fodder for Palestinians, Arab rejectionists, and anti-Israel activists across the world.

Next, Obama just met with the leaders of a collection of Jewish groups, ostensibly to quell their concerns about his approach towards Israel. Barely two weeks later, he gives The Medal of Freedom to Mary Robinson, an enemy of Israel AND the host and mastermind of the Durban Conference (anti-Semitic, anti-Israel). By bestowing of the Medal of Freedom on Mary Robinson it is a slap in the face to the pro-Israel community.

Next, George Soros a man who has made clear his goal is to break the close bonds between America and Israel; a man who has also been a key financial backer of President Obama’s; Soros is a funder of the ICG through his Open Society Institute; Other members of the Board include Zbigniew Brzezinski (whose anti-Israel credentials are impeccable) and Wesley Clark (who called US support for Israel during the Hezbollah War a “serious mistake”.

Next, Daniel Kurtzer another State Department official, blamed the Israeli response to terror attacks for “the radicalization of those Palestinians to violence”. He does not characterize the perpetrators as terrorists but as “guerillas”. accepts a false premise: that the Palestinian problem is the core of the conflict in the Middle East.

Next, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. Beginning with her embrace of the impotent euphemism “man-caused disasters” to the hit job on conservatives and veterans that she was forced to apologize for, to her assertion that crossing the border illegally, “isn’t a crime per se”, to her claim that 9/11 terrorists came in through the Canadian border, Ja-No has confirmed time and again that she’s as effective as HS Sect as she was as Governor at stopping the invasion in her home state (Arizona).

Next, Wednesday, April 15, 2009. Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram “IHS”–symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ—because it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there. Why?

Next, Eric Holder has been busy. H.R. 2159, the Disarming American Citizens Act allowing anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder to revoke the Second Amendment rights of ANY American he chooses based on pure “suspicion”; A new so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban, H.R. 45, the “Catch-All” Obama Gun Control Bill, and The U.N.’s so-called “Small Arms Treaty,” which would confiscate and destroy ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms and set the stage for INTERNATIONAL gun confiscation.

Next, Copenhagen was all about controlling the world’s energy sources, then being able to dictate how that energy will be distributed — and taxed. “Hopenhagen” was perhaps the most concrete step toward a one-world bureaucratic regime in recent history. This would have allowed the EPA to regulate it —
read that ‘tax it’ and ‘outlaw it’ — under the Clean Air Act.

Next, President Obama Appoints John Holdren as Science Advisor. In 1977 Dr. Holdren and his colleagues Paul and Anne Ehrlich published the book Ecoscience. In it, Holdren and his co-authors endorse the serious consideration of radical measures to reduce the human population. The measures include: • People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized. • Women — particularly women of insufficient means due to poverty, nationality, marital status, or youth — could be forced to abort their children and undergo sterilization. • Undesirable populations could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into drinking water or in food. • • A transnational “Planetary Regime” and a transnational police force should be assembled to enforce population control.
This guy is nuts!

Next, Air Force Retracted Invitation for Conservative Leader to Speak at Prayer Luncheon After He Criticized Obama’s Position on ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Dr. William Donahue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights in New York City condemned the action – and called for an investigation. “The decision to silence Tony Perkins, an ordained minister and Marine veteran, represents political correctness at a dangerous level,” Perkins, meanwhile, said the real issue isn’t that he was disinvited to an event – it’s about political correctness in the military on homosexuality.

Next, Obama administration official, speaking on background Friday to a group of reporters, characterized the Fort Hood shooting as “an act of terrorism,” the first time an administration official has used that term in describing the massacre. The acknowledgement was stunning given the criticism from conservatives over the administration’s reluctance to call the incident an act of terror. Asked repeatedly about the relationship between Hasan and extremists in Yemen, the administration official declined to make that direct link. It has been reported widely that Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical American cleric living in Yemen whose influence also was cited in the attempted Christmas day bombing, exchanged multiple e-mails with Hasan.

Maybe this would be a diffrent story if Fox News wasn’t one of the most ridiculous news channels on air, that can’t keep from yelling inaccurate facts every 3 seconds just to desperately diminish the democrats views.

So because Fox is not “traditional” it doesn’t deserve the same treatment as lets say MSNBC which is also a non traditional network like Fox (bc it is on Cable), but since it is tingly friendly to Barry it is all good?

So the dinks admit that the morons at Fox outwitted Obama, the great intellectual. Cognitive dissonance at its finest.

So now we have to guess if BHO’s excuse is going to be Bush or FoxNews… Damn, decisions, decisions.

Typical liberal viewpoint is when bad things happen it has to be someone else’s fault. This viewpoint, of course is a lazy one that requires no introspection and fits nicely with kneejerks — the true modus operandi of libs.

“And we’re guessing that would make some heads explode at Newshounds.”

I’m guessing that they would be happy as that’s how they make a living. Anyone can do it – pick a target, watch it religiously, write about what you see from your own biased perspective, one that creates controversy and at least a handful of people would agree with, throw some ads one the site, and do a little promotion/network marketing … you’ll be making money in no time. It works especially well in politics (newsbusters/ihatethemedia) but it also works well in sports! I love America – there is opportunity everywhere!!

They already have done it with CO2, under the guise of pollutants in the EPA. They can regulate it via governmental environmental issues, place fines and restrictions, which in turn will trickle down to all of us. They honestly do not need Cap & Trade to pass, it is in place.

That’s got to be the most stupid thing I’ve ever heard. The Lib-Rats hate the truth, and they don’t want anyone else to know it. Why do you think they’ve been so secretive about everything? You know, that doesn’t just exclude Republicans, it excludes the Democrats as well. And they STILL support the Rats on the Hill!! Absolutely amazing!!!

danybhoy, we need lots of CO2-cause Barry is going to turn to the Carbon Tax ideas again, now that healthcare is dead. I will be 5 bucks that they levy a tax on us, either the WH/Congress, or this UN/WHO idea of a new tax on banking….it will be on exhalation. You watch, it is coming. The left doesn’t despise carbon dioxide-they love it-it is their friend!

Hmmm, this is pretty funny…

The TARDs are whining because Fox News isn’t carrying Obama’s water like the rest of the lamestream media

This sort of reminds me of Danny Glover blaming the Haiti earthquake on global warming

I remember some people tried to blame the Christmas tsunami of 2006 on global warming as well. Someone might want to explain to any a$$hat who could even believe that line of bull that tsunamis & earthquakes are due to seismic activity, not climatic activity. Then again, anyone buying into the “GlobalWarming/ClimateChange” crap are an easy target, they buy into the lie, & don’t understand that carbon dioxide is a good thing, & helps for a green earth. It’s plant food people, then those plants help create oxygen. We sort of need that to breath, I’m just saying.
