President Obama Laments
Rush Limbaugh And Fox News’
Influence On Public Debate

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/27/2013 2:30:06 PM

In a soon-to-be-released interview with The New Republic, President Obama reportedly laments the negative influence Fox News and Rush Limbaugh can have on the congressional debate over various pieces of legislation. The president told TNR editor Frank Foer and owner Chris Hughes that “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates.” The media can either help break or uphold partisan gridlock, the president said, adding that “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,

Thats a bit one sided isn´t it Mr President? Is it alright for the left´s opinion talkers to spew their bile, but a conservative and a middle of the road news channel cannot.
I think this shows a "I am right and everyone who disagrees is wrong" attitude, sir.

Note Obama´s lack of details as to why these attacks by Rush are not justified. Fox should not be mentioned inthe same breath as Rush.

Obama is out of gas morally, bankrupt financially and morally and maxed out on what he can do mentally, with the media and with spending (like a rock star).

The President says “One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates.” Does he even realize what he has admitted here.

This is what we have been screaming all along ... the media does shape the debate, always has shaped the debate while constantly claiming to be impartial. The President has made it clear that he needs the media to shape the debate in his favor for his efforts to prevail. The likes of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, who present a different side to the debate, must be silenced ! Anyone who doesn´t agree with him must be silenced ! Chilling ! And the President has just come out and made that pronouncement. Are the sheep listening?

I have no doubt the king is upset. After all the low info voters are his base. Those of us who actually look for more balanced news are a threat. Remember the truth and facts are not the friends of the kingdom.

Obama wishes for the good old days.

You know, when the king could lift his hand and say, "Off with their heads!"

And his minions would quickly do the deed.

All hail King Obama! May his name be praised and his word become law! (Just practicing for the underground resistance.)

What kind of campaign did this man run?

It certainly wasn´t about detailing all the great things he has personally done for our nation...

No, it was all about running against Fox and Limbaugh. He ran a smear campaign with his willing accomplices in the media.

Where is all the hoopla over the death of Trayvon Martin these days? The media had it on 24/7 for months trying to gin up that it was a racially motivated hate crime.

And believe you me, Obama´s media drained as much as it could trying to create a black vs white story that played well into the hands of the dictator. Once re-elected, it has been put on the shelf.

Limbaugh is public enemy #1 to those folks, and trying to blame George W. Bush won´t fly anymore, so El Rushbo makes a ready target. Fox news is no longer a valid target with so many libs on panels to make them "fair and balanced" to the RINOs and only mildly conservative "conservatives".

If it were not for Limbaugh and Levin, there wouldn´t be anyone to give an opposing view. Hannity used to stand on principle, but he is slowly going over to the RINO side. When he pals around with idiots like Bob Beckel and Juan Williams, he quickly loses his convictions.

This is a calculated move the President to disarm any opposition. It´s part of a larger strategy to be very aggressive in turning as much public opinion against conservative views. This in part is the same thing that the Democrats are using in trying to turn a red Texas into a blue Texas. It´s not going to end and conservatives need to quit whining about it and take it straight on.

Everyone is spot on..Rush and Levin are at the battlefront.
Hannity needs to do some soul searching..
I do NOT tune in to hear liberals lie and go unchallenged. I do NOT tune in to hear him sheepishly admit that Obama won and we lost.
I do NOT tune in for him to give a platform to liberal callers and talking heads.

Let´s think about this, Mrs. o. is about to unleash the flying monkeys of Organizing for Obama and the Advancement of communism in America Team to influence public opinion. Yet Rush, Fox, etc. are to sit down and shut up. Nothing unfair about her tactics, or those of the head of the communist group, Jim Messina.

Thank you, Mr. President, for insuring that Rush Limbaugh´s audience will continue to "grow by leaps and bounds".

Here is hoping that the influence of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Herman Cain, and other conservative voices with daily access to a microphone will continue to grow and break through the leftist lies.

FTA - He claimed that “leaders like myself—and I include Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in this—are willing to buck the more absolutist-wing elements in our party to try to get stuff done,” as opposed to the opposing party which he views as obstructionist.

Proof that this president is a dyed in the wool Marxist/Communist. He detests a media that questions he or his party´s agenda. How long until witch hunts for republicans begin? How long until we are called out and shamed for daring to embrace INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM over collective cowering before the state?

"RUSH LIES, RUSH LIES, RUSH LIES!" the liberals claim over and again. And they monitor every minute of his show ten hours each week.

But they come up with a "lie" that they try to discredit him with only once in a great while and it always turns out to be something they took out of context or something Rush said as a joke.

I can give you lies from Obama on a daily if not an hourly basis. So the liberals can only find a Rush "lie" a couple of times a year? Examples please from lying liberals!

Sounds like a few of our posters who frequently complain about El Rushbo or "talk show hosts" without naming names. (But as his show promo says, "When they say ´talk,´ they really mean ´Rush.´)

This won´t help Rush´s efforts to lower his profile.

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s endorsement. As Breitbart News reported, the club--based in

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo.

The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
