Did you see where President Obama gave short shrift to Ed Henry over a question?

Posted in Uncategorized on October 15, 2011 by johnmwilliams

Henry had asked Obama about a statement Mitt Romney had made about the Fast and Furious investigation.  After Ed repeated Romney’s assertion, Obama said “I didn’t know you were the spokesman for Romney.”

OF course, Obama’s barb was meant as a barb at Fox News in general because it doesn’t haul his water for him.  However, we now have evidence that ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, the NYT, the LAT, and the WAPO all really ARE mouthpieces for this administration.  Today, though you may not know it, the entire upper echelon of the Obama Justice Department was subpoenaed in the Operation Gun Walker, Gun Runner, and Fast and Furious investigations.  Not a word of the subpoenas was mentioned in any of the so-called “Mainstream Media.”  Now please–let’s be honest–had this been John Ashcroft’s Justice Department under George W. Bush, this would have been hammered every 15 minutes on the broadcast outlets mentioned and headlined the newspapers for weeks!  But “Move along…nothing to see here” seems to be the press’ response to anything that might prove embarrassing for this President.’

Here is the subpoena directly from the source since our press is determined to protect this administration at all costs:

The press during this time in our history will go down as having been co-opted by the Democratic Party.  Not unwittingly–but willingly.  It will be excoriated for having been complicit in the crimes of this administration and I hope the next administration has the intestinal fortitude to prosecute these editors and reporters who are accomplices in this criminal activity.

After this post, I did find a summary of the situation on Hot Air:

New definitions to help navigate the left

Jobs Bill–a bill designed to raise taxes by $1.5 trillion and finish off an already weak economy

“Let me be clear”–Listen to me now and forget everything I’ve said or done before

Fair–a concept that requires that all people produce as much as they possibly can for the sole reason of donating it to the poor saps who don’t know how (or just refuse) to produce much of anything.

Bankers–a catchall term for anyone who has made it big in private life in America. Used as a pejorative to demonize wealth and success in America.

Corporations–any for-profit entity that doesn’t support the Democratic Party. Differs from “companies” like Goldman-Sachs, GE, and other big Democratic donors

Anarchists–radical Democrats who don the mantle in order to try to divert embarrassment from the Party. American anarchist groups’ demands generally read like the talking points from Democrat missives. Gun control, nationalized health care, abortion funding/access all figure prominently in their literature.

SEIU–the Service Employees International Union. Used to provide muscle at Democratic functions. Often seen physically removing anyone who asks an embarrassing or difficult question of a politician from the Democratic Party.

Tea Party–a group of Americans who think the government should spend within its means and live within a budget like the people it allegedly “serves” have to. Often used as a term of derision for anyone who proposes smaller government and an end to profligate borrowing and spending.

T-bagger–a term of derision derived from a gay slur used to deride members of the Tea Party. It’s original meaning referred to a gay man who would put another’s scrotum in his mouth. Of course, in keeping with their maturity level, those on the left, including Bill Maher, Janeane Garafalo, and countless other entertainers and politicians have found this endlessly humorous.

Here’s a nice editorial by Jonah Goldberg about the press’ selective use of the term “extremist”…
