Politico Is Amazing at Demonstrating How Pathetic the Mainstream Media Really Is


Today’s post is not going to be about how mad President Obama is that the gun control bill failed miserably in the Senate. It’s not even going to be about how he’s pretending to be all broken up about the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting – saying that his anti-Second Amendment efforts are all aimed at keeping our children safe – when he’s reportedly deporting a Saudi Arabian foreign exchange student who just happens to be a person of interest in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Or how this development comes right after he had an impromptu meeting with Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, and the suspect’s apartment was raided by federal and state agents.

Not that that’s not important to know, but we should better darn well know by now that President Obama is a double-standard toting, terrorist-accommodating cad who will use any opportunity to get his own way… no matter who gets hurt or hurt worse in the process.

So why spend a whole blog post discussing it when there are other issues to talk about.

Issues like how the mainstream media will do anything to ignore how President Obama is pretending to be all broken up about the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting – saying that his anti-Second Amendment efforts are all aimed at keeping our children safe – when he’s reportedly deporting a Saudi Arabian foreign exchange student who just happens to be a person of interest in the Boston Marathon bombing… or how this development comes right after he had an impromptu meeting with Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister and the suspect’s apartment was raided by both federal and state agents.

Politico Would Make a Great Trashy Romance Novel Publisher

Take Politico writers Glenn Thrush and Reid J. Epstein, who seem to be more suited for typing up drippy romance novels than factual news considering their opening paragraphs in an article melodramatically entitle: “Gun control: PresidentObama’s biggest loss.”

It starts like this…

“Never before had President Barack Obama put the moral force and political muscle of his presidency behind an issue quite this big  and lost quite this badly.”

[Editor’s note: Oh, boo hoo hoo. Cry me a river, build me a bridge and take your theatrics as far away from me as possible. Please.]

“The president, shaken to the core by the massacre of 26 innocents at Sandy Hook Elementary School, broke his own informal ‘Obama Rule’ – of never leaning into an issue without a clear path to victory – first by pushing for a massive gun control package no one expected to pass, and then sticking through it even as he retrenched to a relatively modest bipartisan bill mandating national background checks on gun purchases.”

[Editor’s note: This was never about those poor children or their grieving families. This was about Obama shamelessly using a tragedy to get his own dictator-wannabe way. As usual.]

“It was a bitter defeat for a president accustomed to winning, a second-term downer that may – or may not – foreshadow the slow decline suffered by so many of his predecessors. Obama seems to have the public behind him, but it illustrated his less-than-Johnsonian powers of personal persuasion, the possible shortcomings of his decision to wait a month after the killings to present a plan and above all the limits of his go-to outside strategy of taking his case directly to the American people.”

[Editor’s note: “Obama seems to have the public behind him?” Have they seen the Gallup poll showing that only 4% of Americans think gun control is a pressing issue? Have they checked out Obama’s approval rating? Sorry. Stupid questions, as that would mean they were interested in reporting facts instead of baseless propaganda.]

“More than anything, it was an emotional blow to Obama, who was as irritated at the four members of his own party as he was at the 90 percent of Republicans who defeated the bill.”

Not at All Moved by Politico’s Fictitiously Portrayed Main Character

Am I supposed to feel bad for the President?

I think that’s their goal: to make us feel bad for him. Which just isn’t going to happen in my case.

I’ll reserve my sincere condolences for those damaged in the Boston bombing. And for the undetermined number of people killed and injured in the fertilizer plant explosion outside of Waco, Texas.

Obama gets nothing from me. In my fact-backed opinion, he already takes plenty too much.
