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.

    And yet, they don’t realize that they have become propagandist for the Emperor! They still think they’re speaking truth to power! They have convinced themselves that FOX and Limbaugh are the power that must be neutralized!

    Who am I kidding, they know full well what they are doing!

    What you, and most folks here apparently, don’t understand is that Rush and FOX News are going just so far, and not stepping over any investigative lines that would actually endanger this administration.

    FOX News and Rush Limbaugh are the same as McCain and Romney.

    They are like, and unlike the character Butch in Pulp Fiction.

    “Unlike” in that Butch didn’t take a dive as was agreed upon with Marcellus Wallace.

    McCain, Romney, Rush and FOX News have taken the dive in the 5th round. And are “kickin’ it in the Caribbean”.

    They have all stopped fighting. They’re like WWF fighters from the 80’s.

    Just playing that role.

    Germany had Hitler and the Nazis.
    The U.S.A. has Obama and the Progressives. It won’t be long before Americans understand what it feels like to have been a Nazi or a Jew.

    Rush addresses Islam’s daily atrocities how much?

    Oh, almost never.

    Lines even he won’t cross. Tell some truth, but not too much.

    Rush talks about the Holodomor and the Great Leap Forward how much?


  • Big Al

    This is the president of the United States of America, the most powerful and important leader in the world and he sits there whining about one right of center (slightly) news channel and a talk radio host?? What a tiny, pathetic little man.

  • BrumaShave

    Obama is not my President, he does represent me. (He is a some sort fascist demagogue overlord.)

    Even a Liberal SHOULD BE ASHAMED of this horrid remark.

    “selected and “groomed”..

    “the messiah is absolutely speaking”

    and i still think it’s coming, it just won’t be the “real deal”, sort of like
    “Barry Dunham Soetoro Barack Hussein Obama” (by any other factual, fictional, or composite names), ergo, more lke a bloodbath..


  • BrumaShave

    I meant to say: he does NOT represent me.

  • luke duke

    boo freaking hoo. here’s an idea, you miserable failure: propose a realistic budget and longer term plan to get government spending under control. then get your senate to pass it.
    IOW, do your freaking job, you pathetic whiner.

    Wow. He really is a totalitarian. Isn’t he?

  • Amash

    This little man can only function if everyone sees things his way. Three judges just told him about abusing his power. What does he do? Complain because not everyone is in the tank for him. I’m telling you that Moosh wears the pants in that family. Jugears does what he’s told so he thinks he gets to control us to make up for it. He’ll really screw up he’s so drunk on perceived power. He’ll do something that even his minnions in the press will not be able to cover for him. He is not nearly as smart as others tell him he is, and deep down the cry baby knows it.

  • JDR-Taq

    Joanne is right:

    Germany had Hitler and the Nazis.
    The U.S.A. has Obama and the Progressives. It won’t be long before Americans understand what it feels like to have been a Nazi or a Jew.

    Some of us will be playing one role, and some will be playing the other.

    As always with these Marxist Fabian “Progressives”.

    As always.

    Obama – born to be a dictator. Doesn’t want dissent. Just do as I say. I know what’s good for you better than you do. You are stupid. I am brilliant. It’s still Bush’s fault.

  • Viv

    Is there no end to this man’s unashamed lies?

    Rush isn’t talking about ICR2P either… the real power… the real building one-world government that in two months will again try to slam an arms treaty into what remains of America and the little pieces of freedom left in the world.

    Rush barely ever grazes over the ICR2P spin-off from 1993 as well…… ICLEI……. The man always talks ‘environmental whackos’. Well, ICLEI is environmental Totalitarianism and it’s in every municipality, county and state, plus the feebs embrace it as if they invented it.

    Beck is starting to get it, but he’s basically been marginalized and wants to sell you jeans at $150 per pair, God love the man as a Capitalist.

    I’ve been trying to warn people for well over two decades about this building madness. In that time, I’ve been called out as being every tin-foil-hat comparison you can think of and some you can’t.

    Look it up for yourselves…… No links this time.

    Here’s a sobering thought…… If the Senate doesn’t pass “gun control” (and it starting to look like they won’t), you know the House won’t (they damn well better not), what’s the odds on El Guapo simply trying to exec-order 2A out of existence via simply accepting on behalf of the nation the arms treaty and in that same moment of time, at least one of the sane SCOTUS justices ‘has an accident’ ?

    It’s getting to the point where any ‘dissenters’ remaining with a real voice heard by many will be ‘Breitbarted’.

    Keep telling yourself it can’t happen here.

    It can.

    It is.

    Some folks are saying that as a nation we can’t take another four years of this administration.

    Other folks, like me, are saying that as a sovereign nation we can’t take another four months.

    Wake the hell up.

    It’s coming.

    In other words, Obama said, “How dare the citizenry make their lowly opinions heard. If only the Congress could operate without outside input, we could get my agenda done.”

  • Conservative Ken

    This is why we need Conservatives in Washington who will fight. We are fed up with Rino’s who appease, coddle, reach across the aisle, and then sell out. Obama will never own up to his failures and bipartisanship only allows him to deflect blame. The President will blame us anyway.
