Barack Obama: I’d Get More Done Without FOX News and Rush Limbaugh …(Everyone Else Is In the Tank)

Barack Obama complained to The New Republic this weekend that he could get a lot more Republicans to buy into his radical agenda if it weren’t for FOX News and Rush Limbaugh.
(Everyone else is in the tank.)
NewsBusters reported:

FRANKLIN FOER, EDITOR NEW REPUBLIC: Are there any forces for reform within the Republican Party, people you’ve been able to establish some sort of working relationship with?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, look, I’ve always believed that there are a bunch of Republicans of goodwill who would rather get something done than suffer through the sort of nasty atmosphere that prevails in Washington right now. It’s not a fun time to be a member of Congress.

And I think if you talk privately to Democrats and Republicans, particularly those who have been around for a while, they long for the days when they could socialize and introduce bipartisan legislation and feel productive. So I don’t think the issue is whether or not there are people of goodwill in either party that want to get something done. I think what we really have to do is change some of the incentive structures so that people feel liberated to pursue some common ground.

One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.

It’s not a fun time to be a member of Congress.

    Obama is very thin skinned and hates when facts and truths are told. .

    Nothing riles him up more than when Fox or Rush use facts to
    Cal a spade a spade. . .

    And if it weren’t for Congress and THAT Constitution. . man, Obama could be King! NOT!!!!

  • Swifty

    And I’d have peace of mind if Obama would resign right now.

    Kind of brings to mind gang rapists complaining that if the victim would just hold still and comply it would be easier for them.

    Hillertarian. = Hitlertarian

    [In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not
    exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and
    now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless,
    the Western World did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though
    a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet
    dictators today, as <b.someone who leaves the established order in

    Don’t be fooled. FOX is in the tank as well. Their heads just aren’t completely under quite water yet.

    Does anyone here still listen to Rush?

    I remember when I started listening to him, and why. His content was “news” in every sense to me, in 1990, when I was fresh out of high school. At that point, at 19, 20 years old, I would read five newspapers every day — I was a concierge at a high-end Boston condo. The newspapers were very educational for me, when I discovered that the “opinion” columns on the Editorial page contained more truth and reporting than the so-called “reporting” part of the paper. I read WSJ, USA Today, Boston Globe, Boston Herald, and NYT every single day.

    Rush was ahead of the curve in 1990.

    Rush is two-week-old news now, and most of it is irrelevant.

    Q: Has Rush spoken at length about the Cloward-Piven Strategy?

    Q: Has Rush mentioned Larry Bland, Donald Young, and Nate Spencer, even in passing?

    Q: Has Rush devoted any airtime to the obviously-forged BC released by the White House on it’s very own website?

    Like Palin, he has stopped fighting — or never started and fooled us the whole time.

    Like a WWF fighter from 1990 or something.

    We are a nation of cowards, and our “heroes” are just like us.

    Savage (bless his proud heart) and Barnhardt need to make a baby.

    On the same note (sort of):

    Oddly, I don’t?

    Point ’em out.

  • JDR-Taq

    And Jane is right. FOX is in the tank with this cabal. Beck was their last vestige of sanity.

  • Rachelle

    Then thank God for Rush Limbaugh and FOX News.

  • JDR-Taq

    Beck was FOX’s last firing synapse.

    It’s all Hollywood now.

    And so now Rush will get another round of suspicious packages arriving at his door. This is at least a sign Obama is feeling resistance to his fascist dictates to a level reaching frustration…. KEEP IT UP.
