Now that he's finally come to the conclusion that there's nothing to be gained by working with Republicans, we have people like you criticizing him dor not doing the same shiat that didn't work in his first term.

Obama has zero chance of ever having a good working relationship with the GOP, and trying to buiod one is an exercise in futility.

Revisionist history begins today, apparently. Obama has ratcheted up the rhetoric at every opportunity, attempting to bend his opponents' will with inflammatory characterizations of them and their ideas. Because you accept and parrot that rhetoric does not change the polarizing results.

Republicans are about to shoot Hagel down at the same time. On the one hand, I really don't want Obama to run this roughshod over the GOP because the party has a place at the table. On the other hand, I really want Obama to continue running roughshod over the GOP because that table is the kid's table.

I'm torn. But either way, it's fun to watch the GOP eat itself in cartoonish style. This is some Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck level chicanery.

So when was the last time that Chris Matthews forced a Democratic politician to apologize to him?

Because Rush has done that plenty of times to Republicans. Even the Republican leaders, if you recall.

Michael Steele apologizing after taking some shots at Limbaugh? He was forced by Limbaugh to do that? Whatevah.

"[House Speaker John] Boehner comes out and says Rush's language was inappropriate. Using the salad fork for your entrée, that's inappropriate. Not this stuff," Will said. "And it was depressing because what it indicates is that the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh. They want to bomb Iran, but they're afraid of Rush Limbaugh."

/Of course, George Will is a well-known liberal who's biased against the Republican Party. . .

Hey, we agree Republicans should not be bending to the will of talking head blowhards. Just like Democrats shouldn't be kowtowing to MSNBC, the NYT or Jon Stewart.

It doesn't help forge good working relationships to accuse them of doing so, which was my original point.


So, it was a good thing when George Will pointed out the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh, but it was a bad thing when Obama pointed out the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh.

Then when the GOP does oppose it they look like immigrant-hating obstructionist asshats.

He's not really walking a tight-rope though.

Anything that has a chance of getting signed will be tossed by the Tea Party in the House the moment Obama shows any support of it.

These are people that can turn on a dime the moment Obama comes out for something they once endorsed.

Obama could say "Ok, we'll build a wall along the border", and the Tea Party would oppose it on grounds that Obama was using it as a giveaway to "construction union thugs" and "walls also keep people in".


I've long thought Obama should come out in favor of oxygen just to watch all the Tea Party folks immediately put plastic bags over their heads.

The Economist is one of the few conservative rags remaining that hasn't yet gone through the rabbit hole, but it is a bit of a lone wolf these days.

The larger issue is that "conservative media" has essentially transformed into "conservative propaganda".  Bias in the news is nothing new.  Editorials about journalistic integrity have been making the pages for a few centuries now.  But it appears that things have gotten worse over the past few decades, especially at the national level.  More pages and airtime are being spent on single-sided commentary.  Self-criticism is almost non-existent.  Fringe positions are given center stage because they are edgy and provocative.  The tone has taken an incredibly us-vs-them view.


FTA: What he's saying is the media is not liberal enough

No, he's saying that the conservative media is not liberal enough.  You can move towards the center yet still remain a right-leaning publication.  There are societal benefits to having more centralist publications.  But instead, these guys hear (or say that they hear) that Obama wants an all-liberal media, which is a distortion of the truth.  It riles them up and makes them want to turn to the right even farther.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Well, if we could negotiate worth a darn I wouldn't mind Republicans talking to Obama. But we can't so no, no talking with Obama.


Yeah Obama does pretty well for being an "empty suit".

"Sources Cited" in the unsigned anonymous "article"

1) Breitbart
2) Media Research Center (Newsbusters, funded by Scaife and Olin and Exxon)
3) The "Center For Media in Public Affairs" (funded primarily through right-wing foundations) run by Fox News contributor and former American Enterprise Institute hack Sammy Licter

That's some fancy "newswriting," Lou. Next time try signing your name and having at least one non-partisan source.

Conservative media and even it's leader Murdock don't give two shiats about anything they talk about. Carl Rove probably does but he's a major exception to the rule. Conservative media is a business and like any business you have to find customers.. Talking heads are designed (grown maybe?) to maintain the customer base. They don't care about companies like Factcheck because that company doesn't effect their customer base. Any raving Republican will go down the list of talking points and if you present them with unequivocal facts to counter "their" opinion you will be ignored.

Billions of examples but one that just made me close my eyes was the Romney business model and the fact that my sister, a die hard repubtard, did not consider anything he did at Bain to be relevant to the presidency because he wasn't CEO when they did bad stuff. Even though he was CEO from 1978-1999 that did not count and she even told me so.. "What Romney did before 1999 isn't important." I still don't know why it wasn't important.

Anyways.. Just came to say: $$$$$$$$$$$$
