The media is turning on President Obama
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/27/2014 4:45:46 AM

With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of postmortems. What went wrong, who’s to blame, what next — even The New York Times is starting to recognize that Dear Leader is a global flop. “Obama Suffers Setbacks in Japan and the Mideast,” the paper declared on Friday’s front page. The double whammy of failure pushed the growing Russian menace in ­Europe to inside pages, but even they were chock-full of reports about utopia gone wrong. One story detailed how the White House was facing the “consequences of underestimating” North

False premise Mr. Goodwin. This is just a stealth way to get demonrats stoked up to feel sorry for the fool in the WH and gin up the demonrat party base.

The article is more about how the press is, and has been, a lapdog for Obama, rather than a watchdog and adversarial.

Excellent and terribly late. Mr. Goodwin still must know the propping continues. The sychophant media are still paralyzed by their ideology and do not want conservatives to win at any cost. This has been beyond a nightmare for honest citizens.

By their own "logic", if the NYT is starting to diss Obama, the NYT is starting to be racist. However, since no MSM journalist is able to think clearly, there is no reason to believe they will ever begin to understand just what Obama really is.

Too true AND too late! Perhaps Mr. Goodwin is trying to innoculate himself from the harsh verdict of History. Won´t work; they are guilty if useful idiots. But maybe, just maybe, some are awakening to the fact that they sent a boy to do a man´s job...and it hasn´t mattered what color the boy is.

No they aren´t, it is just their way of pretending they are cleaning up their act prior to a mass of pro Hillary and liberal
bias leading up to the coming elections.

Notice all the baloney now about how everyone is now pro immigration reform. They are just shifting tactics and it isn´t clever, actually pretty transparent.

How do you sell the outrageous fact of giving criminals citizenship when honest people are waiting in line to legally immigrate. In real life citizens shoot people who cut into lines just to buy the latest hot sneakers.

If the Republican Party wants to commit suicide by supporting criminals over honest immigrants because the media is going to pretend reporting fairness, they are dumber then I thought. Obama is gone come the next presidential election. The media will still support the next Democrat criminal candidate.

They are just adjusting their priorities.

If after all the obvious examples of this administration´s failures and corruption were not enough to bring them to their senses, I don´t hold out much hope now. I see it more as a "we´re done with you, O.. now its time to move on to the next one". And we all know who that will be.

They will never admit they were wrong.. just like someone else we know. Never.

As Obama continues his irrelevancy, the new dRATS strategy is to run against him. The media and pols are now going to position themselves as the royal opposition within the party. Elect us "again" and we will fix all that is wrong with this county.

Too bad the low infos will believe this hogwash. Meanwhile the only ones who can do anything about it will yawn and sit on their hands during the election cycle and allow the dRATS to win enough seats to prevent anything from being changed.

We have seen the enemy and it is us.

If anyone was lucky enough to see the fascinating, unauthorized biography about Barack Hussain Obama, on the internet before it was scrubbed, gained tremendous insight re how his feeble mind works. It was called OCCIC, which stands for, "Our Communist Commander in Chief".
Obama usually does practically nothing about problems, crisis. It seems to do something risks too much political liability and he is simply not going to risk it. This was standard modus in Chicago. If he ever does do anything, as other smart Lucianne posters have pointed out, it is the opposite of what works. Domestically, all he ever does is cherry pick some pseudo downtrodden segment of society to "rescue" with an Executive Order pay raise or other perk. Appealing to
the masses simply is not in his playbook, within realm of possibilities. Class warfare is a pathetic, desperate weapon of politics and all he has. He is a Lenin prodigy but leftists howl when comparison is made-too bad because there are many similarities.

When the MSM starts screaming for impeachment of the sock puppet, demanding the repeal of obamacare, demanding answers on Fast&Furious, Benghazi, the IRS corruption, etc. etc. they might get my attention. Meanwhile they are just stating the obvious that can´t be spun or no longer hidden. Obama is an insane little boy, on a par with the nut in North Korea, and he should not be permitted to finish this term.

The article doesn´t go far enough. The msm is the drive wheel of the 4 wheels of government. They elected BHO and the majority of the rest. They are the puppets. It doesn´t care about the excesses, the failures, and scandals, unless it serves its purpose. It has its own agenda. The msms is the dictator we live under. They own the information channels and so dictate what the majority believes. How many times have you asked yourself ´how did this guy ever get elected?´ He was unelectable, but they control the information. The better question is why did the media control the story on him to get him elected? The msm makes who it wants and destroys who it wants like a god that allows a certain level of free will so long as it does not ruin the agenda. (Bundy, Palin, etc.) That is why sites like this are so important. No, Goodwin is only scratching the surface.

The communist media isn´t dead by a long shot.
They´re just not into Obama and their thrust toward socialism has to continue. What you are going to see is the push for Hillary Clinton or Elzibeth Warren to lead the charge with their theme being ´the war on women´ their race card is played out and Obama is useless to them.

Obama continues to insult and abuse the American people, and the press enjoys his irreverence. He put Mao decorations on the WH Christmas tree. He sent an all gay contingent to the Olympics. He had the first gay married minister give the invocation for the National Prayer breakfast. And, he is sending abortion supporters to the canonization ceremonies in Rome.

To write against these insults would be racist or homophobe, or have a war against women. So, nary a peep, and Obama gets away with it. It is disgusting!!

The Post is still understating the situation. Obama is not a "global flop," he is a "global disaster."

If Obama even has a foreign policy it is totally incoherent. By now, foreign leaders know that Obama´s bombastic threats and demands are so much hot air. And, heaven help you if you believe Obama when he says he has your back. Just look at the Syrian rebels and the Ukrainians. Obama´s idea of military support is providing MREs. When sanctions started working on Iran, he, and Kerry, gutted the sanctions.

It will take decades to undo the damage he has done while in office. Here is hoping the next President can put a stop to the damage and begin to repair it.

My fear is that what is this country coming to? And will it be salvageable? I really don´t know if it will be. And to think that we still have two and a half years left of this idiot. And really, just what is it going to take to rescue the country? IMHO, as I´ve posted many times, only a revolution is going to be effective. The citizens will have to rise up and clean out the entire political atmosphere in this country and start over. The current Constitution is a wonderful start, but would need some changed made in order to keep this same thing of happening again. It can be done. All it takes is a people mad enough and fed up enough to rise up and make it happen./rant

The milking of perks, from golf trips to Florida to European vacations for the first lady, is shockingly vulgar...
Great description of Dear Leader´s performance. Take your pick of the definitions of "vulgar" listed below - they almost all fit Barry:

Vulgar:
1. characterized by ignorance of or lack of good breeding or taste: vulgar ostentation.
2. indecent; obscene; lewd: a vulgar work; a vulgar gesture.
3.crude; coarse; unrefined: a vulgar peasant.
4. of, pertaining to, or constituting the ordinary people in a society: the vulgar masses.
5.current; popular; common: a vulgar success; vulgar beliefs.

The second one fits - remember Barry has used his middle several times in meetings with Republicans - he pretends to either be rubbing his nose(pretty obvious) or resting his head on his fingers so that the middle one is more prominent.

I think Michelle fits #1. Why else does she wear some of the get-ups she does?

obama is to the democrats whaat Nixon was sto GOP until obama trumped him. Dems just kept bringing up Nixon but will the GOP play the same game with obama?

At the very least they should insert the word democrat for every obama failure listed. No patriot in the democrat party (and yes I know they hate it when you do not include the "ic")is about to jump ship and act like an American first and a party member second unless we count Snowden who kinda damaged the country in eagerness to save her?

The entire democrat party owns the obama regime and its failures and the commies and socialists in advisory positions, like Van Jones, a Cabinet Member. Was that incompetence or brazen confidence in ability to fool all the people all of the time?

The only use for a democrat party is to keep the GOP from overstepping. They better become the party of the middle class and middle America with this last chance we are trying to give them or give us a bill that we can easily go third party and have run-off elections if noone gets 50% of the vote in elections.

Dems and GOP have colluded to prevent this. Where is Nader the nut when we need him?

Some 30 years ago I subscribed to the russian edition of the magazine "Korea". I believe there was English edition too, but couldn´t find it in the US. That was a magazine describing the "holiness" of Kim Il Sung on 30-40 pages of colored photographs and articles on new operas or "films" of his valor and blah-blah-blah. This magazine (12 monthly issues) was the funniest read even in the Soviet Union. Now, the mainstream media looks exactly like this "Korea" magazine. With one exception: you can get sports and stock information on top of the articles of the "holiness" of OUR dear leader obozo.

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

"I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film." Here´s the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America”

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price. (Of course, auctions often break

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

Jose Antonio Vargas and

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
