Obama Blames Media ‘Preferred
By Republican Constituencies’
For Unfriendliness In D.C.

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 2:46:22 PM

During a Monday press conference in the White House, President Barack Obama was asked about his seeming lack of interest in socialization with other members of the political establishment in Washington. Obama said that, while he is a friendly person, it takes two to socialize and Republicans are generally not interested in being seen with him. He blamed “media that is preferred by Republican constituencies” for creating an environment in which a Republican politician seen with Obama has to fear a primary fight in their next election.

Comments:
He sure is something else isn´t he? It sure takes a twisted mind to blame lack of socialization on the media. And then he brings up Charlie Crist as an example?? Good. Grief. That man has major psychological issues. What a pity for us.

Keep believing that they won´t socialize with you because they fear a primary battle ... just keep believing that ...{snicker}

I am sure Barry will be posting all of his photos with W on the white house web page to show how friendly he was with the opposition President when Barry was a senator.

Yes, any first year student of psychiatry could diagnose mental illness in this guy.

I feel like I have been violated. And I certainly am being lied to by the mainstream media. They are the greatest enemy a free people have ever faced in history.

It´s amazing how powerful truly dumb people can become.

His so-called presser today was textbook Alinsky. And campaign talking points and buzz words and expressions. Also tried to change history by saying that he got what he wanted - except that the middle class grew from his $250K limit to $400K.

He was disgusting.

I think the current redient of the White House is causing similar distress for a lot of us.

Does that mean that we are not "falling in step" with our lovable/personal Dictator?

What has happened to our country? Have we lost our sense of value and our reason for existing, that we are able to think for ourselves, have the God-given ability to rationalize what is going on?

Every day that Obama speaks he suffers from "foot in mouth" disease!

How important it is that we decipher what this man is saying with/without his teleprompter!

We have never been in such a mess as we are in today and it will only be rectified when we come to our senses and realie what has happened, eager to unite to bring about change!

God alone is able to "deliver US" from the mass destruction that exists in the White House and Obama was freely given full reign to destroy US.

Wake up America before it is too late.

We endured one term, will be able to survive another?

This is a "rude awakening" to what is to come if we don´t make a stand for "righteousnes".

Sin destroys a nation and only God can restore US to the country we used to be - One nation under God, with liberty and justice for all! Amen (so be it!)

A variation on the theme that Barry O. is bipartisan and above politics, the Great Compromiser - while his opponents are partisan, politically motivated, and refuse to compromise.

In fact, he lacks political ability. He in unable and unwilling to work with others who disagree with him. There has probably never been a U.S. president less adept at politics than Barry O.

People who say he is a consummate politician mistake rhetoric and demagoguery that sway the masses for political ability that would permit him to work constructively with adversaries. Obama is a demagogue whose only skill is inflaming the masses and pulling the wool over their eyes. The latter is made infinitely easier by a sycophant and partisan media.

Remember how Bush invited Congressional Dems to social events at the WH, etc. SO much more mature, classy, and truly bi-partisan than this president. Yet the media insists it was BUSH who was DIVISIVE!! Unbelievable...

So 53 percent of Americans disapprove of ObamaCare. But is it me or Republicans behaving like it´s a 100 percent? Because I don´t know about you, but hanging your election hat on 53 percent seems dicey to me. I´m not saying ObamaCare won´t be and shouldn´t be an issue. But stopping action on any other issue in the meantime looks pretty stupid. Look, I was the first to say this Affordable Care Act wasn´t affordable and the promises behind it were just an act.

Jimmy Carter has been very active in the decades since his presidency, and his successors have occasionally called for his advice. Except, it turns out, the current occupant of the office. A clip from Carter’s upcoming Meet the Press interview reveals that President Obama is the first president since Carter left office not to solicit the Southern Democrat’s advice. Carter explained, “President Clinton did and President George W. Bush and H.W. Bush and even Ronald Reagan used to call on us to go into sensitive areas.” They all asked Carter to deal with “unsavory characters,” but Obama hasn’t reached out to

Next week, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America will present House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is the group’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics. Planned Parenthood is the nation´s leading abortion provider, having performed 327,166 of the procedures in 2012, according to its latest annual report. Pelosi, a Catholic, will receive the Margaret Sanger Award at the PPFA’s annual gala in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 27.

Last week, President Obama directed his Homeland Security Department to examine its current deportation practices -- "to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely, within the confines of the law," the White House announced on March 13. But with immigration reform stalled in Congress, what more can Obama do? "I think he´s going to wait until August," said Telemundo anchor and immigration-reform advocate José Díaz-Balart. And if Congress doesn´t act on immigration reform by then, "I wouldn´t be surprised if he starts making some very controversial executive orders to mitigate the pain of millions of people who face deportation," Díaz-Balart told

Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border. CBS News reported on Friday that a mass mobilization of Russian forces was taking place on Ukraine’s eastern border with at least twice as many troops as the 20,000 number originally reported. The defense “exercise” included tanks and tactical aircraft and appeared to show signs of a logistical buildup required for a sustained operation. Obama on Thursday announced additional sanctions against Kremlin officials and oligarchs

Theory: Maybe Black Toddlers Are Suspended

In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

A spokesperson for the Democrat´s office said to the AP that his staffers weren´t informed why they were asked to leave the premises by state police. Fox´s office and his attorney declined comment on the incident, while the U.S. Attorney´s office would only say that law enforcement officials were carrying out two search warrants at the State House.

Testing is only in the early stages at this point, but the White House internal technology team and communications agency are testing Android devices from the two South Korean phone makers, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cites an unnamed source. The implementation of Samsung or LG phones is still months away, but this is the first indication that the White House is preparing to move away from using BlackBerry.

She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said
