Taday has pissed me off no end. This same unrelenting and continued denigration of whatever President Obama says or does is irking me beyond all bounds. This morning on Morning Joe they were discussing President Obama's address to the nation regarding the removal of combat troops from Iraq. It received the same scathing comments as his reports always do. Artie Fleischer, Bush's former press secretary, I believe, complained that he thought the President did not give George Bush enough credit for ending the war.
This is from the same guy that has been saying that President Obama should OWN the economy. He should NOT be calling Bush's name and trying to hold him responsible for the economy.
Now, when something good is taking place, Fleischer and the Republicans think President Obama SHOULD GIVE BUSH THE CREDIT.
I just cant believe the double talking and hypocrisy that takes place on these talk shows, all with straight face.
If Bush should NOT be held accountable for the collapse of the economy he SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN ANY CREDIT FOR THE REMOVAL OF COMBAT TROOPS FROM IRAQ.
These damn talking heads cant have it both ways. They cant be allowed to play these damn games with the public. Either Bush gets held accountable for EVERYTHING that occurred on his watch or he gets held accountable for NOTHING.
They have been using this double standard of judgement since Obama has been in office. They went on today to compare his remodel of the Oval Office to Bush's remodeling. Of course, I am not surprised that they thought Bush's was better.
Apparently everything Bush did was twice as good as anything Obama could even think of. This same prejudiced and racist mentality has been holding sway over the Media since Republicans decided to pull out all the stops to get back in power. Every media person almost to a man can hardly wait to see who can pucker up and kiss more Repub booty.
The Corporate owned Media has been after this President like a group of baying hounds and I am damn good and tired of those lying dogs. They need to go back to their kennels. They are providing no good sevice to citizens of this nation.
This group along with the so call progressive Lefters have been whining and complaining since the beginning. I wonder why they didnt just tell Obama HE HAD 30 DAYS TO GET THINGS STRAIGHTENED OUT WHEN HE WAS ELECTED.
I dont think he expected to have to straighten out 8 years on a constrained timetable or else I dont think he would have run for the job.
I wish that he would resign and hand it over to Biden and see if the Media
would proceed in the same way to denigrate him. I doubt if they would talk about his vacations, his wife's vactions or how often he played golf.
Seems to me this minute invasion of the President's life and activities are just particularly designed for HIM. No other President would be subjected to it and the Media would become suddenly silent on the subject.
They make comment regarding Obama that they never would consider with a white president. The Media is providing the forum for the insulting behavior that the Republicans are exhibiting toward the public and Democrats.
Yesterday, Shaddeg was on Morning Joe and Bob Herbert?, I believe asked him to name one or two things he would suggest to get jobs coming back.
Shaddeg told Herbert to stop INTERRUPTING him. Herbert to his credit told Shaddeg to not talk to him like that and reminded him that he was not on the House Floor. Scarborough said that courtesy would have to hold sway and he told Shaddeg to continue. Of course, Herbert didnt get to respond.
That is always the way on these shows. Republicans can say anything they want and they will be given a hearing.DEMOCRATS GET SHUT DOWN. Shaddeg and his ilk have been calling the public lazy and parasites. They have issued insults left and right and NO COMMENT HAS COME FROM THE MEDIA.
They have said NOTHING about the DISRESPECT that Republicans have been
voicing to people they expect to vote for them. WHATS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
As for all of these dissatified left wingers, you never had the committment to Obama in the first place. YOU ALL JUST HAD YOUR OWN AGENDAS AND WHEN OBAMA DIDNT FULFILL THEM IN HIS ALLOTTED 30 DAYS IT PISSED YOU OFF. Well find another candidate. You almost destroyed President Clinton by pushing him into a confrontation about DADT in the military and caused the whole of the Democratic party to almost be annihilated. The entire right wingnut part of Republican party came against him and where were you? If minorities hadnt protected him by speaking up for him, he may not have survived his impeachment but I think that the support from TRUE DEMOCRATS and minorities groups KEPT THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS SUPPORTING HIM.
Apparently, you want to do the same thing again. You thing you can just FORCE YOUR CHANGES NO MATTER WHAT THE RESISTANCE. You will lose. The corporate owned media ALWAYS sides with the Republicans because they are
the party that will WILLINGLY AND CHEERFUL HAND THEM THE KEYS TO THE TREASURY OVER AND OVER AGAIN. This is because they are like Cunningham, they get their piece of the take either in money and good and SERVICES or they get their campaigns funded for allowing the nation to be robbed.
The President will never be able to please you no matter what he does so he may as well please himself. If he only makes sure they are not able to steal by vetoing every tax cut they try and pass or he has agencies ENFORCE strict regulations to the letter so that they cant pillage or destroy the environment, he will have done his job.
I have absolutely no confidence in any Independent voter, they are fair weather friends. They are on whatever side is on top at the time. They have no committment to any ideals except to be on the winning side. Some
of these so called progressive Democrats are little better because they
think that they can ignore what MOST of the people want and go to the EXTREME because they think its the right thing to do. Its the losing thing
to do because in being extreme, all the end up doing is splitting up Democrats and diluting their power.
I dont know what the end will be, I just know we cant continue on this road as a nation. We are going to drop off of the edge because there is NO SENSE OF REASONABLENESS or cooperation left in the atmosphere that
prevails in the nation.
