Obama Blames Fox News, Rush Limbaugh For Congressional Gridlock

“You guys in the press are incorrigible.” Obama to softball-slinging Steve Kroft on CBS News 60 Minutes Sunday.

“Incorrigible”?  Fingering Fox News is Obama’s favorite media diversion.

“One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates. If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.”

    What a petty man, for the next four years this is all he will do, whine like a baby.

    He and the media will ignore the debt and pretend spending cuts are not necessary.

    With Lew heading Treasury it means QE infinity will probably increase.

    The Fed (printing unbacked notes) rally will continue, free lunch for all.

    They will swear that higher taxes on the mean rich will solve it all!!!

    It is just a matter of can they keep it up for the next four years, that’s the real game, that’s the one the WH is really playing.

    Can the WH/Press blow enough smoke and print enough money in order to skip town before the crash.

    Nothing ever changes in DC, and it never will as long as corrupt politicians and lobbyists exist.

      You’re so right. Sadly.

      Our seat of government needs to be moved to a large cornfield in Kansas, surrounded by razor wire and guards with orders to “shoot to kill” any lobbyists that approach the compound.

      I loath everything in DC except our founding documents and the monuments (which could be moved).

    Gee, I’d gladly worship him, but I’m a bit nervous about what happens when I bend over to bow down.
