New Book Says Obama Blamed His Troubles on Bush the tsunami earthquakes Republicans Europe debt crisis FOX News

A new book reveals that Barack Obama blamed his troubles on Bush, the tsunami, earthquakes bankers Republicans the Europe debt crisis FOX News.
Who hasn’t he blamed his troubles on?
The Politico reported:

President Barack Obama blamed Fox News for his political woes in a private meeting with labor leaders in 2010, saying he was “losing white males” who tune into the cable outlet and “hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7,” according to journalist David Corn’s new book, “Showdown.”

In “Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party” — which hits bookstores on Tuesday — the Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones chronicles the White House from the 2010 midterm elections to the start of the 2012 campaign. The book focuses on key moments of Obama’s presidency, such as Osama bin Laden’s assassination, the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the Arab Spring, the debt ceiling crisis, and the president’s dealings with Congress.

Corn writes that after the midterm elections, Obama told labor leaders in December 2010 that he held Fox partly responsible for him “losing white males.”

“…Fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in…The Republicans have been at this for 40 years. They have new resources, but the strategy is old,” Corn recounted Obama as saying.

Obama can blame whoever he wants but his excuses ran out a long time ago.

    Not Rush Limbaugh? Or conservative talk radio?

    Wow, Rush and talk radio need to up their game!


  • Joanne

    People believe Obama is a muslim because of the facts that substantiate he is a muslim. He is to blame for how people think about him. Actions speak louder than words, especially when he is repeatedly proven to be a liar.

  • jorgen

    And who should he blame? Mohammed and karl Marx!

    Is Zero truly that stupid? Or does he just think those who heed him are stupid?

    The severe mental disorder is becoming more apparent by the day. Narcissism, Mommy-Daddy issues-whatever the hell you want to call it drives all the policy decisions of him and all the yes men in the Politburo at the White House. Throughout history, nothing ever comes good from getting these people out of power. Riots, wars, social upheavel, etc. are typically the norm. Not to mention all of his past associations with extremely bad people. These communists aren’t leaving without a fight, IMHO.

  • Charlie

    Yes, Obama is right. I’m old enough to remember what happened 40 years ago. Yeah, Fox News and Limbaugh were constantly saying that Obama was a Muslim then. Don’t let this “We didn’t have show 40 years ago” nonsense fool, err… bamboozal you. Clearly, Fox News had devoted the entire 70’s to claiming that Obama was a Muslim, as well as forcing him to be raised by bankers in poverty amongst the beaches of Hawaii. Obama is double awesomeness!

    Did you know?

    Presidential Proclamation — National Day of Honor
    NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 19, 2012, as a National Day of Honor. I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities that commemorate the return of the United States Armed Forces from Iraq.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this nineteenth day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.


    Call those that served and thank them! You don’t have much time to put together a parade but let this go VIRAL.

    i don’t know just what obama is but for a guy who depends on a teleprompter…….i would think if he can repeat the call to prayer and not screw it up it might just mean that he has a working knowledge of it. given his habit of mangling things and all…….

  • OBAMA FAILED E-VERIFY… google it!

    The Fact is that FNC, along with the rest of Media, are totally in the tank for him on the multiple forgeries. “Obama is not an American Citizen 24/7” would be the conclusion by any viewer, were it being reported.

    And now, a message from Harvard Trained Police Investigator Bill O’Reilly
    “REAL JOURNALISM” Where? When?

    This communist clown has had favorable treatment from his groomers in community organizing, professors in college, and a syccophantic press for his entire life. No one has questioned any of his policies or thoughts-UNTIL NOW. He can’t emotionally or psychologically handle it. Surround this putz with nothing but yes-men and it becomes a very volatile situation. I bet it is worse than even the new media is leading us to believe. And yes, if you disagree with him you definately are stupid.

    #7 Charlie,

    Are you on dope? In the 70’s there wasn’t even an internet, cable TV, or anything but the three networks, ABC, CBS, NBC, and news papers, and there wasn’t even most of these news magazines we see today. The only news magazines was Time, and there was Life, Look, The Saturday Evening Post which later became just Post. I don’t know what world you were on to “be old enough” like you say, but it wasn’t here on this earth.

    I’m guessing here, but you may need to recalibrate your sarcasm detector.

    Wow, Obama sure whines a lot about a tv station he has clearly NEVER WATCHED — unless, I suppose, he’s on it, but audiences with The One have seldom been granted to the FOX folks. Simple answer to the Muslim question (please listen, Mr. Santorum): of course he’s not a Muslim — if he were, we’d see him attending a house of worship once a week, and he certainly does not do that. On the other hand, if there is one religion in which he has received anything resembling a solid grounding and formation, it is just as certainly that of Islam. He went to school and studied the Quran diligently. Twenty years in the pews of the Irreverent Wright’s church in no way constitutes education or formation in Christianity, but instead all the evidence points to it being a megaphone for racial politics and bogus world history (like Jesus and Cleopatra being black). Islam lacks a central teaching authority, and it seems like any guy in a pulpit can produce doctrine when it suits him, but I don’t think you can call yourself a Muslim if you never set foot in a mosque to pray and don’t follow all the food and bathing strictures. However, let’s face it, if Mr. Obama has manifested any religious instincts through his speech and behavior, the evidence points to them arising from a personal sympathy towards Islam, and a rude antipathy towards Christianity.

    Does anyone actually think everyone keeps quiet about the truth about his fraudulent birth certificate and selective service record because they stand with Obama. No, it is because Obama and his administration has created an atmosphere of fear and retribution, and no one dares speak out less their lose their job and/or life. Sheriff Joe is cut from a different cloth, so their way to deal with him is to ignore him and hope he goes away.

    Obama obviously believes his time may be short, so he is doing everything in his power to clamp down on any potential uprising, which may come to pass if he declares martial law and stops the election or if Americans rise up because of massive voter fraud that keeps him in the Whitehouse.

    #13 Taqiyyotomist,

    Yeah, I figured there was something else going on, but I went ahead and said what I thought just in case someone who really didn’t know, would hear about what there was back then.

  • Neck Beard

    Fox News reported that zippy was a muslim? I’d like to see the transcript where any Fox employee called the zipster a muslim. Most likely, a Fox News reporter was interviewing someone who said such a thing, or the microphone picked up someone yelling it in the background, or someone was holding up a sign during a location shoot.

  • RickS

    Really, So Fox news just proclaims “Obama is a Muslim” every day, 24 hours a day? How did I miss that? Because, it just sounds so unlikely. Like it might just be another straw man or something.

    If it wasn’t that Lady Obama wasn’t going on the idiot Letterman’s show, I would grit my teeth for a few seconds and close one eye, and see what she was going to lie about her husband. But for these two together, I just couldn’t stand it watching two liars, and brain dead person’s who have no idea what is going on. But, the truth of it is, they DO know what is going on. That’s how they get away what they say. I just can’t stand to look at her, or her husband, or to hear their voices. It’s like as if Satan himself is speaking, it’ just grinds me so badly the wrong way I can’t stand it.

    Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals says, “Keep the pressure up, keep putting pressure on your opponent so as to tear down their resistance.” Obama is using everything in his porfolio of dirty Democrat tricks, just plain liberalism, Socialism, Marxism, Communist Manifesto methods, Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radical’s, political pressure, threats, black mail, coersion, back stabbing, power plays for support, just plain being a Democrat and what they do to get bills passed by promising things they have no intention of doing, but that’s just politics in most cases, and acting on Alinsky’s Rules of “It’s not what you have that you enemy knows about, but what they think you may have” that keeps people on his side scared of him and what he could do to you if you don’t support him, and the one that costs us the most money and that is “reward your friends, and hurt your enemies” like Solyndra.

    So Obama is using everything in the book to take this country down, do as much damage to us the people as he can, and doing everything the Socialist Democrats have deconstructed, and then reconstructed new rules this government and country operates under that are no longer under the Constitution of the United States.
