Obama: At War with the 4th Estate, Abandons 4th Infantry Division
US Soldiers Killed In Afghanistan Firefight Were From 4th ID
The eight U.S. soldiers who died in one of the deadliest attacks of the 8-year-old war in Afghanistan were assigned to the 4th Infantry Division, the military said Wednesday.
Shouldn’t the Commander in Chief worry more about Foxholes, less about Fox News? Our soldiers are sacrificing their lives and President Obama is Voting Present, making no decisions at all and is instead focusing on whining about a News outlet. While people DIE.
I first read about the “war on Fox News” at Gateway Pundit the other day:
The White House is upset that FOX News does not fall in line with the other networks.
They can’t understand why FOX won’t factcheck SNL skits like the other good networks.
White House Communications Chief Anita Dunn whined about FOX News… again… for 9 minutes today.
Being a grown-up, I of course assumed that it HAD to be just a one-time deal and that whoever pushed that meme would probably be reprimanded for its idiocy. Nope, I was wrong. I sadly mis-judged the utter and absolute incompetency and dangerously naive agenda of the Administration.
From Breitbart tv , regarding above video:
Fox News: In recent weeks, the White House has begun using its government blog to directly attack what it called “Fox lies.” David Gergen, who has worked for President Bill Clinton and three Republican presidents, questioned the propriety of the White House declaring war on a news organization. “It’s a very risky strategy. It’s not one that I would advocate,” Gergen said on CNN. “If you’re going to get very personal against the media, you’re going to find that the animosities are just going to deepen. And you’re going to find that you sort of almost draw viewers and readers to the people you’re attacking. You build them up in some ways, you give them stature.”
That’s it; now MY gloves are off. (Yes, that was my gloves on before, sadly, but, I’ve absolutely had it now. *shaking fist in air*)
How about fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda and providing enough support for OUR TROOPS who are sacrificing their lives rather than whining like a big baby whiny-pants about Fox News. Aww, poor baby …. if Fox News is being all meany pants to you by “smearing you” with truth and facts and by somehow managing to not succumb to your alleged charms nor be all tingly-legged, perhaps you should “unclench your fist” and embrace them? Or do you only do that with *actual* enemies of our Country?
Here’s a News Flash for you Obama, from someone else you hate (we pesky intranets people) Not everything is about YOU and your feelings and your “brand”, you narcissist.
You feel attacked? Why? Because ONE media outlet, together with some citizens, are doing their jobs and trying to make you do yours? You see, YOU work for us, not the other way around. Try being under literal attack like our Troops. Or, you know, at least try to imagine it and send them the support that those braver and smarter men are asking you for, as is your job. Try being Commander in Chief instead of Narcissist in Chief. If you can fit that in between your ubiquitous TV appearances and staged photo-ops – I realize those are of the utmost import — to you.
Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and John Malone’s Liberty Media Corp are also interested in NBC Universal, though neither has approached GE so far, CNBC reported, citing sources.
News Corp, which owns the Fox cable network and local TV stations, had been seen as a less likely bidder, analysts have said, because taking a stake in NBC might raise antitrust concerns with the U.S. government.
I’ll give you one thing, Obama. You have the most enormous and enormously unwarranted ego that I have *ever* seen. And I include Keith Olbermann there. Now THAT is saying something.
I’m also now using YOUR Alinsky Rule #4 for everything. YOU and your Administration can now defend yourselves against my accusations. So, here’s one:
I think you’re an idiot. J’accuse! (if that makes it easier for you, being an enlightened “citizen of the world” and all). Now, try to defend yourself and prove me wrong.
I don’t think you can. Either does Senator Dianne Feinstein:
When DIANNE FEINSTEIN makes more sense than YOU do, I think this comment on twitter is apropos:
Screw his stupid birth certificate…can someone show me his grammar school diploma?
Cliff Notes for you, President: Some things are more important than your cult of personality and your poll numbers. We are involved in two *real* Wars, President Obama. Our soldiers are dying. Do the job you campaigned to do and stop just campaigning.
Unfortunately for us all, I am afraid that you are not capable of doing so. Words matter? Yes, but so do experience and Real World knowledge. Sadly … and scarily perhaps even tragically … for us, you appear to have neither.
