What do you think of the "best and brightest administration ever" now?


#1

Remember when we were told by the media nw much brighter Obama and his administration was over and over? How they were so computer literate? How they would bring the country into the new century?

So here we are with our allies smarting from being ignored or belittled by Obama and all that bowing Obama did was for naught.Those that hate us openly sneer and those Obama choose as allies take our money and hide enemy combatants within their countries as well as not so secretly fight against us.

How this administration was going to be the most transparent and open with both sides freely cooperating? How bills were going to be viewed five days before being voted on. The reality was Obama “won” and bipartisanship only was with those RINOs who voted with the democrats anyway.

Look at the wars Obama has gotten us into in which Al Qaeda has taken the lead or the Muslim Brotherhood. Now we have Iran at the doorstep of nuclear weapons and North Korea bribing us for money and aid so that they will not attack their neighbors.

To hear the democrats the economy is in recovery. Telling us made up numbers about employment when such facts as more people out of work and on food stamps or other assistance is known.

I am not the only one who has observed the furry of laws to further clamp down on the privacy of Americans with efforts to station Homeland Security at predetermined check points. The national I.D. card is still being sought.

So is this the best very administration? NO IN A PIG’S EYE

Your post really swirls around the subject of the MEDIA. I almost posted this as a seperate thread, but I think it interfaces with your post:

A nation where governments are elected by the people is most vulnerable at the interface between the politicians and the people. The interface is where the people learn what the politicians stand for and where the politicians learn what the people want. The bigger a country gets, the harder it is to pick up on that consensus by stopping by a coffee shop or an auto repair store. That’s where the Medicracy steps in to control the consensus.

The media is no longer informative, it is conformative. It is not interested in broadcasting events unless it can also script them.** It does not want to know what you think, it wants to tell you what to think. **The consensus is the voice of the people and the Mediacrats are cutting its throat, dumping its body in a back alley and turning democracy into their own puppet show.

Media bias was over decades ago. The media isn’t biased anymore, it’s a player, its goal is turn its Fourth Estate into a fourth branch of government, the one that squats below the three branches and blocks their access to the people and blocks the people’s access to them. Under the Medicracy there will still be elections, they will even be mostly free, they just won’t matter so long as its upper ranks determine the dialogue on both sides of the media wall.

The Medicracy isn’t playing for peanuts anymore. It’s not out to skew a few stories, it’s out to take control of the country. In military empires, the military can act as a Praetorian Guard. In political empires, it’s the people who control the political conversation who also control the succession…"*

[/quote]I am reminded of the TV show Dragnet where Joe Friday say “just the facts”. Years ago the news outlets could be depended on to give the facts and not engage in yellow journalism or opinion pieces. That is no longer the case when we had Walter Cronkite shaping the news which was picked up and is the norm today. Long gone are the days of Edward Roscoe Murrow.

Journalists come out of school now not with the seven goals in accuracy in reporting but to shape the narrative so that they influence their audience whether in front of the camera or in print.

The last few years the media has really worked overtime to sell a bill of goods to the public. With Obama the media flat out refused to vet him and even the GOP spent little time verifying Obama’s credentials.

You are so right, I remember reading Walter Winchell’s column back in the day when it was rough and tumble, hard hitting ‘just the facts mam’…they pulled no punches, took no quarter.

Today the slobber mouthed liberals drool all over themselves when Obozo’s plane even lands in their city and a hard ball question is what he had for breakfast…

BREAKING: Mainstream Media Finally Cover Libya
http://media.conservativeslead.org/images/2296/hrac-video-template-.jpg
Dear Fellow Americans:

You know how infuriating it is to turn on the news these days. The mainstream media turn a willful blind eye to the chaos happening on Barack Obama’s watch and do everything they can to make conservatives look like fools.

We’re calling them out.
Watch this hilarious new video – and be sure to share!

We have Islamist extremists killing Americans overseas and a President who is making excuses for our enemies instead of defending our values.

We have the worst economic crisis since the great depression and trillion-dollar deficits as the new normal; we also have a President who has played more than one hundred rounds of golf, but made zero real attempts to work with Congress to create jobs.

And how do the liberal media treat him?

They fawn over every word that Barack Obama says, giving him a pass until the situation is so gruesome that they have no alternative.
