This is the Leader of the Free World...

When Obama was asked by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie if it was acceptable for the White House to determine what is news and what isn’t, he replied:
“I think what our advisers have simply said is that we are going to take media as it comes,”…. “And if media is operating basically as a talk radio format then that’s one thing, and if it’s operating as a news outlet that’s another but it’s not something I’m losing sleep over.”
 
What a non-answer and a bunch of BS. He stirs the pot, and when questions arise, he has neither the backbone nor the courage of his convictions to admit his actions and the purpose of those actions. He is a coward when he is caught red handed trying an end run around the peoples’ rights.
 
Obama also told Guthrie, according to a report in USA Today, that the American public isn’t interested in the squabble:   Really?  

“Understandably, since you’re in the news business, this is something that you’re very interested in,” Obama said. “And I think the American people are a lot more interested in what we’re doing to create jobs or how we’re handling the situation in Afghanistan.”

“Interested in what we’re doing to create jobs?” What jobs? Where are they? I’m having a hell of a time finding one. “Interested in how we’re handling the situation in Afghanistan?” What handling? How does sitting on your hands, waiting until after the November elections, constitute “handling”. And all the while, our troops there are wondering “whaaazzzuuppp??

After reading this, some might think I’m a troublemaker, a tea partier ( pronounced: par-ti-ay) or even a “racist”. However, in truth, through the spring of 2008, I was impressed with Obama’s eloquence, keen on his basic ideas and ready to vote for him. As a result, I began to listen more closely to his words and seriously consider what effect his policies and goals might have on me and my country. Then came that enlightening statement  when he said, “We are going to fundamentally transform America.” In that eureka moment I realized he was nothing more than an articulate snake oil salesman selling a useless and potentially harmful remedy to a bunch of gullible, tired people. And he did it, didn’t he? And he’s still doing it.
