Obama Laments Partisan Media and Too Much Money in Politics While at Swank Hollywood Fundraiser

Well, we’re going to need a bigger hypocrisy meter.

In a sober political assessment, President Barack Obama told donors Wednesday that disquiet and a sense of frustration in the country is fueling cynicism about government that could hurt Democratic turnout in the November congressional elections.

Obama told high-dollar contributors that he feels a sense of urgency about the election and needs the Senate to remain Democratic. Republicans have a chance to win control of the Senate this year.

Obama spoke at the home of Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn before about 90 contributors who paid from $10,000 to $32,400 to attend. Among those attending were Hollywood luminaries Barbra Streisand, James Brolinand Jeffrey Katzenberg

Obama said the political system faces challenges from legislative procedures, a partisan media and too much money in politics. But he said the main cause for gridlock was fundamental differences between what Democratsbelieve and “what this particular brand of Republicans in Congress believes.”

Wait, he said partisan media and too much money in politics while raking in $32,400 a pop?

Maybe he means this kind of partisan media:

Because if you polled a thousand people and asked them which obstacle Obama has faced in his time as president it’s unlikely a single person would complain the media is partisan against him. Of course we all know he’s got Fox News living rent-free in his head. Just pathetic. Meanwhile, for a guy who whines about too much money in politics, this is rich:

Under the face of such withering scrutiny we indeed must fight this bitterly partisan media.
