One of the things that was so annoying about Barack Obama was that he would often spread absolute bull cookies with perfect smoothness and guile, and people would be taken in by the words, without realizing that what he had to say was often complete nonsense.
On Tuesday, Barack Obama had the audacity to accuse the Republicans of having a “massive war chest” and “violating basic norms” as well as having “a propaganda network with little regard for the truth.”

This, from a man who had virtually all the networks in his pocket, touting him as the second coming, who never called him out, no matter how bad the scandals got. They’d just wait a bit and turn to the next news cycle. No scandal was ever pursued, he was never held to account and even today, they try to sell the story he never had any scandals except a tan suit. Talk about “propaganda with little regard for the truth.”
Obama’s upset that Fox isn’t in the Democrats’ pocket (because that’s surely the network he’s seeking to demean)? Why does he need them? He had every other network. And that was the problem. That’s why Democrats have bashed Fox at every opportunity and even now are trying to go after it. It isn’t because of what it says, it’s because they don’t control it. That’s why they have organizations that target Fox and Fox hosts, trying to take them out.
Obama wants to talk about “violating basic norms?” The scandals of his administration were of epic norm-breaking character — shipping guns to cartels; spying on Congress, lying about that to Congress; spying on reporters from the AP and James Rosen, and even the surveillance of the campaign of a political opponent using the FBI and likely Russian disinformation, paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.
Sen. Ted Cruz wasn’t going to let Obama’s remarks just slide by.
Shorter Obama: “Dems only have 8 of the 10 richest American billionaires—including Bloomberg, Bezos & the Google founders—plus Soros & Steyer. And we’ve only got ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, WaPo, NYT & just about every other newspaper in America. How can we compete on $$ and propaganda?” https://t.co/JeMXCriaAb

From Daily Wire:
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took aim and obliterated Obama, firing back this missile on Twitter, “Shorter Obama: ‘Dems only have 8 of the 10 richest American billionaires—including Bloomberg, Bezos & the Google founders—plus Soros & Steyer. And we’ve only got ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, WaPo, NYT & just about every other newspaper in America. How can we compete on $$ and propaganda?’”
You can say that again. What gall. How dare we not have every network and every billionaire in our pockets!
Not only completely ridiculous but frankly, so whiny too. I’d forgotten how glad I am he’s no longer president. This just reminded me, big time. Good job for busting him on that, Sen. Cruz!
