Media Ignores Negative Obama News
September 11, 2012 6 Comments
President Obama has skipped half of his daily intel meetings. He’s attended 412 hours worth of economic meetings but has spent over 600 hours on the golf course. Maybe that’s a reason why Moody’s is threatening to cut the US credit rating again. Where is the media on any of this? Remember in 1992 when the media mocked President Bush, 41, over his alleged amazement over a grocery store scanner? The media narrative was false, but they ran with it anyway. The other day President Obama couldn’t figure out how to work an iphone. There is no media mockery, just like there wasn’t for all his other silly gaffes.
Media bias in this election has been particularly obnoxious. It always is unfortunately. Dan Quayle misspells ‘potato’ because a teacher handed him a card with the word misspelled and it’s proof he’s a moron. Obama thinks there are 57 states and he’s given a pass. It goes beyond this though. The Democrats claim Obama saved 1.5 million jobs with his bailout of GM. The bailout cost taxpayers $25 billion according to the government. It would have been cheaper to just cut all the workers checks for $150,000.
Of course, Obama didn’t save 1.5 million jobs. He only saved all those jobs if they were going to be lost, which we know wasn’t going to happen if a normal bankruptcy restructuring would have occurred. The Democrats claimed that saving GM created 250,000 jobs. It’s a fiction. GM only created 4,500 jobs. Around 236,000 auto jobs have been created, mostly from foreign companies setting up shop in right to work states. Yet Obama claims his bailout of GM did all of these things, which of course isn’t true. W here are the media fact checkers? They must be fact checking Mitt Romney’s speech slated to be given next Monday.
Obama is partially responsible for the subprime mortgage fiasco. As a community organizer in 1995 Obama filed suit against several big banks alleging they weren’t following laws which force banks to lend money to people who cannot afford to repay the loans. These were Carter era laws that started getting enforced during the Clinton administration. This law suit, along with others across the nation and the Clinton administration’s enforcement of Carter’s law created the subprime mortgage crisis. Banks were forced to loan money to people based on race not ability to pay. They then sold and bundled mortgages creating the crisis. But for these subprime mortgages, we never would have had a housing or financial collapse.
Yet again the media is silent about Obama’s involvement. Even if you were to say that Obama was only involved in one or two suits in Chicago, how exactly is this information people shouldn’t have? Obama played a role in the subprime mortgage crisis. The lawsuits he filed as a community organizer played a role, like it or not. Sadly the mainstream media won’t even report it. But we’re supposed to trust them with ‘fact checking’ the candidates? The media can’t even be counted on to report facts much less fact check other people.
In the next two months we’ll see media bias on steroids. Everything Romney or Ryan do will be fact checked and scrutinized to death while everything Obama does will be glossed over. Just wait for the October accusations which will be levied at the Mormon Church and its history of racism. But the media will once again gloss over Obama’s relationship with racist pastor Jeremiah Wright. We Republicans are used to media bias but it doesn’t make it any less galling. We haven’t seen anything yet, next month is going to be brutal on the bias front.
