  • Obama Rants Against The First Amendment

    The president of these United States is not too happy with your friendly neighborhood columnist. President Obama took me and my Fox News colleagues to the woodshed -- during a speech at Georgetown University.
    It's unclear whether the White House made the Catholic school cover up Jesus -- like they did back in 2009. But that's a topic for another commentary.
    Anyway, the president was blathering on about how all of us folks here at the Fox News Corner of the World are a bunch of anti-poor people bigots. He said we portray the poor as “sponges” and “leeches.”
    I'm afraid our Constitutional law professor turned commander in chief is not aware of something called the First Amendment.
    “I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant venue,” said the president who sends his children to a posh private school and whose wife jets off to exotic vacations on the taxpayer dime.

    “They will find folks who make me mad,” he said about us. “I don't know where they find them. They're all like, ‘I don't want to work. I just want a free Obama phone, or whatever.’ And that becomes an entire narrative that gets worked up. And very rarely do you hear an interview of a waitress, which is much more typical -- who is raising a couple of kids and doing everything right but still can't pay the bills."
    He went on to say that he wants to change how America’s journalists do their jobs.
    “[W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues,” the president said.
    I'm afraid our Constitutional law professor turned commander in chief is not aware of something called the First Amendment. That's the one that says "Keep your Saul Alinsky, community-organizing paws out of our newsrooms.”

      I hate (and I mean really hate) to agree with the President on this. FOX does pretty much present the poor in that very light. It used to be a pretty good network, and still has some merit (Brett Baier e.g.), but otherwise has deliberately steered course for the nearest sewer. With but a few examples, it is just as shoddy as MSNBC. Television news has nearly ceased to exist as a news information source, and that is a pity given its reach and ease of access.

        A question for Obama the Ignorant, and maybe my fellow peons too...

        Where's the waitress's husband in all this? Did she have those kids out of wedlock knowing full well she couldn't afford to raise them on her own?

        Why is she just a waitress? Unless you are terminally stupid you can move up and get ahead if you try more than just getting by.

        And, there are welfare leeches too. What Obama the Ignorant, are you doing to ferret them out and take away their free ride on taxpayer money?

        So, Obama is right...

        “[W]e’re going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we’re going to have to change how the media reports on these issues,” the president said.
        We need to get rid of the Progressive Leftist meme that the poor are just down on their luck or can't get ahead on their own and recognize some people are just lazy and need to be kicked to the curb. Or that we need to change the dialogue to one of government is the last resort not the first when it comes to dealing with poverty.

        Of course, such words would send Obama the Ignorant and his ilk into spasms of apoplexy if they heard them.

          Good. The poor need to be shown in a neutral way and that means that all-too-often you are going to end up with stories of lazy and stupid people doing lazy and stupid things. If the average poor person was smart and energetic they wouldn't be poor long...

            I gotta disagree with you. There are educated waitresses who are waitresses because there aren't any job opportunities. A combination of predatory student loan programs and a stagnant economy mean that you can be an educated hard worker with high initiative and be dirt poor. Now left wing politics are largely to blame for this, but it does happen.
            A new life awaits you in the off world colonies; the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!

              Getting a degree in Women's Studies, or one in Art History qualifies you to be a highly educated waitress. Those are not degrees you get to get a better job as a woman, they are degrees you get to get your "Mrs" degree...

              There are no job opportunities in Women's Studies, or Art History... It's like getting a BFA degree... Unless you are already a musical genius or the like it is worthless...

              That is not my, or your, fault. It is the fault of the idiot who thought that degree would be valuable.

                    Your absolutely right that not everyone should be compensated equally but according to their contribution to society. Unfortunately news outlets like Fox do not serve the public good by showing how little real contribution is made by those at the opposite end of the economic spectrum from the poor, lazy and stupid.

                      And then some...

                      Obama does not really care about the poor; in fact, he has made his presidential objective to create as many of them as he can, utterly dependent Democratic voters all because they need hi massive socialist programs to survive. That's why he loves all of the illegals so much; they are poor to begin with.

                        Well...in all fairness, Bwaha, you can also be a janitor or a garbage collector with that particular degree. Or, you can actually make $18 an hour being a professional demonstrator. AT least, that's what the Demmies are paying.

                        Of course, we shouldn't sneer at the infamous "liberal arts" degree in the face of the newer and infinitely more useless "black studies" and "female studies" degrees. (good for a career in politics, or so I hear)

                          I realized that Obama had no understanding of the First Amendment (or just didn't care) when he admonished the Supreme Court over the Citizens United case in his State of the Union address a few years ago.

                          He demonstrated that he is either a liar or an idiot (constitutionally speaking) with that statement.
                          Or both.

                            There are an awful lot of degreed folk out there that did NOT major in "Liberal Arts" (whatever that is), but are askiing "would you like fries with that?"

                            The problem is that there are only X number of jobs out there, and nX number of degreed job seekers. If n>1 McDonalds, or other low paying employers, is almost the only choice. This then has a "trickle down" effect of pushing non degreed people out of the job market and into "welfare queens."

                            The only way to reduce the number of various welfare is NOT to get rid of the welfare (you just create an even bigger problem...food stamps, e.g. actually puts the money back into the economy), but grow the economy.

                              But if you actually did that, the Dems would lose a huge portion of their voter base.

                              Government these days is about creating dependency, not lessening it. Dependency equals control, and control equals power and perks for those wielding it.

                              Do you honestly think that the likes of Obama and his buddies really want to rub shoulders with the common people? Elitism is a contagious disease, as is the need to feel better than everyone else.
