Poor, poor, pitiful Barry:
In some follow-up comments to his recent interview with the New Yorker, President Obama accused his conservative critics Rush Limbaugh and Fox News of painting him as a “caricature,” and suggested that those depictions are solely responsible for the gridlock in D.C.
When asked about his dealings with Congress, Obama had harsh words for his critics, saying he used to have “great relationships” with Republicans he worked, but now they simply won’t work together anymore because the Rush Limbaugh’s and Fox News’ informed conservative base will view it as betrayal. He stated:
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.
Teddy Roosevelt called the presidency a “bully pulpit”, not because it beat people up but because it commanded attention. To hear Barack Obama tell it, he just can’t get a fair shake.
Yep, the economy is booming, everyone is working, al-Qaeda is on the run, and we’re all saving a ton of money on healthcare insurance, but Rush Limbaugh and those lying bastards at Fox News have people convinced that everything is FUBARed with all their bogus reporting on phony scandals like Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, Pigford, drone killings, and the usurpation of power.
The Hammer of Kraut tells it like it is:
