Of Course: Pathetic Obama Blames Fox News and Rush Limbaugh for His Failures

Posted by on Jan 23, 2014 at 1:53 pm

Starting year six of his failed presidency, the petulant man-child lashes out like a three-year-old. Without the evil Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, he’s apparently have a 100% approval.

What a dick.

President Obama said that gridlock on Capitol Hill stemmed from an inability to “penetrate the Republican base” and convince voters there that he’s “not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh,” rather than his oft-questioned willingness to socialize with lawmakers.

In bonus excerpts from an interview with The New Yorker’s David Remnick, Obama conceded that there was “no doubt that personal relationships matter at the margins and can tip something over the finish line,” and admitted that he “wasn’t in a position to work the social scene in Washington” as the father of two young girls.

But he said comparisons to presidents like Ronald Reagan and Lyndon Johnson were unfair in an era of polarized parties and gerrymandered districts.

Obama said “it wouldn’t have mattered how many drinks” former Speaker Tip O’Neill (D-Mass.) and former President Reagan had, were the top Democrat not grappling with conservative Southern Democrats from districts won by the Republican president.

“I think probably, just from a purely political point of view, the bigger challenge that I’ve had has to do with the fact that there is a core group of Republican House members in particular who know that I lost their districts by twenty-five or thirty points, and that there is a Republican base of voters for whom compromise with me is a betrayal,” Obama said.

The president also complained that conservative media had created a “caricature” of him divorced from “reality” that made rallying voters from those areas particularly difficult.

“The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think,” Obama said.

Ronald Reagan faced a media 100% in opposition to him, yet never once did he whine about it. Of course the difference there is Reagan was a man comfortable with himself. Obama, at 52 years old, is still searching for an identity. What a pathetic loser.

    As a Russian saying goes ‘a bad dancer will blame even his balls to excuse his bad performance’.

    Of course in this case the balls part is hyperbole.

    Um, he doesn’t even meet with his OWN party.

    Nice try, Barry. I know, Presidentin’ is hard work, but maybe if you rolled out of bed before eleven, didn’t say things like “I won,” and actually COMPROMISED, you wouldn’t be in this mess.

    Good Lord, he has the media figuratively fellating him, a Democratic party that excuses every illegal thing he does, and he STILL whines?

    Can you imagine him with a thimbleful of GW Bush’s negative coverage? He’d be sucking his thumb and rocking back and forth in the corner, curled up in the fetal position.

    ” a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think”

    examples include:
    cash for clunkers
    green energy (besides lining the pockets of his friends. That was an immense success)
    channeling guns to Mexican drug lords ( and getting border patrol agents killed).
    policy regarding Syria
    policy regarding Egypt
    policy regarding Libya ( with special credit for embassy security)
    policy regarding Iraq
    policy regarding Afghanistan
    policy regarding Iran
    policy regarding Honduras
    policy regarding Russia
    “shovel ready”
    pivoting to jobs ( so successful that he’s done it over a dozen times)
    setting a record for the number of wars waged and bombs dropped by a Nobel peace prize winner
    Earning the “lie of the year” award from the Washington Compost

    Affirmative action has its consequences. Much like socialism, everywhere it has been tried.

    Somebody in the White House needs to tell this clown that the real problem is that his “message” has penetrated conservative areas. It has been roundly rejected because it does not comport with American values.

    Color me shocked, The Racist, bigoted, black-hating, homopobic, Klansman scumbags are defending the Head Racist Limbaugh! I’ve said anyone who hates Obama is a Racist, now I know I am RIGHT!

    And thus proving Obama’s point that people who hate him are racists! not to mention hypocrites!
