Obama: Time to Stop Listening to the ‘Bloggers and Talking Heads’

Obama: Time to Stop Listening to the ‘Bloggers and Talking Heads’

Big Eagle 1With the U.S. government reopened after a near-unconditional surrender from congressional Republicans on more federal borrowing and Obamacare, President Barack Obama praised the federal government’s importance to every American’s life.

“We hear all the time about how government is the problem,” the president said Thursday at the White House, hours after signing an agreement reached between the Senate and House of Representatives. SOURCE

“A near-unconditional surrender from congressional Republicans”

I have never had words cut into my mind and burn me to the core like those in quote regarding a near-unconditional surrender from congressional Republicans. I feel like I have been cut by a knife, a deep and long cut, one that could bleed you to death, and one that if you did manage to survive, would leave you with a horrible scar.

Not ALL, but a great many, far too many on the GOP side, gave in to Obama, allowing him to feed his ego and nourish his narcissism to even more invincible levels, invincible in HIS mind and those of his followers perhaps.

Obama said, “We hear all the time about how government is the problem”, and you know, Obama is right, he didn’t intend to be right but he spoke the truth, government IS the problem.

Of course Obama believes that government is not the problem, as far as Obama is concerned, government, and government regulation is the solution to everything, and more government is an even bigger solution.

People not agreeing with Obama and accepting everything he says as the Gospel is what he considers the REAL problem while his followers see any dissent, ANY disagreement with the words of Obama as vile RACISM directed at their Obamessiah.

Then there’s the problem Obama has with *bloggers and talking heads*.

By bloggers Obama refers to people like me and the thousands of other Conservative bloggers in America, well, the more well-known bloggers actually, I doubt that my little blog generates a very big blip on the Obama radar, but bloggers nonetheless.

The fact that at least some of us are well known for our telling of the truth as we see it, for producing well researched posts with irrefutable citation and for engaging in the rapidly dying art of journalistic integrity apparently chaps Obama’s hide a bit.

What seems to give Obama even more grief, is *The Talking Heads*, and I am pretty certain that the talking heads Obama refers to are NOT Chris Matthews and the like.

Hannity, Limbaugh, Levin and the multitude of Conservative talk radio hosts are driving Obama nuts, and in the spirit of Obama and golf, it’s a short drive. 

Conservative talk show hosts have a much wider audience than bloggers and exert much more influence on the face of politics in America. It’s easier to tune in and listen than it is to read I suppose.

We hear a lot about *print media* dying and I am pretty sure that’s the truth. Blogs such as this have seen a huge downturn in readership and support while talk radio is still growing by leaps and bounds.

Here is the biggest problem facing Conservative American voters as I see it; the GOP, the Republican Party, has rolled over and committed suicide.

The GOP has abandoned their Conservative supporters and fully embraced the tenants of Liberalism by allowing “A near-unconditional surrender from congressional Republicans” in the face of a challenge that is about to change the direction of this nation, and one that we will face again shortly after the new year.

For a long time I referred to the GOP of late as being nothing more than Dem Lite. I don’t think I’ll be using that phrase any longer, you see, the GOP has taken their platform all the way off the charts of ANY kind of Conservatism and have become a full extension of the Democratic Party. In other words; there is little, if ANY difference between most of the GOP and the Democrats.

Certainly a few brave Senators and Congressmen fought the good fight, they tried to garner the support of their fellows as they attempted to beat this monstrosity called Obamacare, and they tried to make a plan that was acceptable to all concerned regarding the government shutdown, but their efforts were rejected at every attempt. Do you think that future efforts will render a different outcome? Do you think the GOP will suddenly find the courage to stand up to Obama? Do you believe that Obama and Reid will suddenly become receptive to what Conservatives may want?

Do you still believe in Santa and the Easter Bunny?

To those that fought the fight and didn’t give in, you have my congratulations and my most sincere appreciation and admiration! To those cowardly RINOs that folded like a cheap suit and didn’t fight for this nation and the people that put you in Congress and Senate; DAMN YOU TO PERDITION!

The GOP has indeed committed suicide my friends, they now stand arm in arm with the Democrats and Barack Hussein Obama, that is a FACT and one we need to get used to.

We can no longer call ourselves Republicans, if there are still some among us that do. The time is rapidly approaching when we form a true Conservative Party and retake this nation from the hands of the enemy, that enemy being the unholy marriage of the GOP and the Democrats, henceforth; The Republicrats!

I will be officially changing my voter registration to Independent as soon as possible, I will give no money to ANY GOP incumbent or candidate and I encourage everyone that cares about the direction of this nation to do likewise, including those already elected and holding office.

Or, you can take Obama’s advice to heart and stop listening to bloggers…

    I am with you mate.. it has to stop

  2. As an Independent voter for nigh onto one year (switching from Republican, too), may I take the opportunity to welcome you to our ranks!

    I couldn’t agree more with your post above!

  3. Alan Caruba says:

    While it is true the GOP suffered a defeat, politics has no end so a single setback does not determine the future. As the party struggles to find a strategy and unity, ObamaCare continues to eat away at support for the Democrats and will likely result in a great victory for the GOP in the 2014 Midterm elections. The independents will no doubt be the determining factor.

  4. NativeSon says:

    I may be registered Independent–but I can’t see me ever putting a mark by a name with “D” next to it!!!

  5. Working To Keep Freedom says:

    I am also changing my status from Republican to Independent and will not under any circumstances send the GOP any more money! I also concur with Native Son…no name with a “D” next to it will get my vote!!! This is the last straw for me and I’ve reached the point where I must change so that I can help change my country!!

    Great post, Fred !!!

  6. wayne says:

    My wife and I changed from registered R to I many years ago. We both went back to R after we moved to Florida. We wanted to vote in primary elections. I personally beleive a well meaning winner of an election can be swayed (bought?) once they are shown all the wonderful personal benefits that can be had if they just don’t rock the boat. I give you M. Rubio. We, as conservatives ,can not give in to ridicule by the smarmy comments hurled by political lowlifes. They are so easy to recognize. I also think election fraud is a serious problem. Remember “It’s not who votes, but who counts the votes”.

  7. Mike Flynn says:

    Fred you managed to put into words, exactly what I felt after the so called ‘vote’ the other night. It is time for a third party – oh, I know, they’ll never get and traction, blah,blah, blah. We are at a time when a vote for either Dems or Repubs is a move to slide our country further down towards (at least) financial ruin. ‘the republicans committed suicide?’ – YES they did.

  8. HGPSURF says:

    I don’t consider myself a depressed person but there definitely has been an underlying depression in me since the last election and recent events have not helped it go away. I am in the camp of a ONE term limit starting with this next election. Forget about people in Congress needing time to get used to how things work as how things work in Washington IS the problem.

    • LD Jackson says:

      You have expressed exactly how I have been feeling since the night last November when I realized Mitt Romney was not going to defeat Obama. I have never been someone to get depressed, but it has been hard to keep it at bay since then. The fiasco of the past three weeks have made it even more difficult.

  9. Robert says:

    Well now since you did such an excellent job with this post, I must find something else to post on my little blog. My Take:

    I think it was Ghandi who said:
    “First the ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.”

    We past ridicule last week during the shut down. We’re into fighting. 2014 will either be an epic win or the end of America as we KNEW IT.

    Obama must demonize all opposition. Print media is dying. The NYT has lost all but the furthest left liberal readers. The Mainstream NATIONAL news has seen their viewerships dwindle to half of what they were 10 years ago. BUT the problem is LOCAL NEWS affiliates of the mainstream. They are saturating the local areas with NO NEWS or just BEST SPIN of Obama’s leadership so low info voters have no idea of the truth.

    Bloggers like you and I can’t be controlled and as such have MUCH MORE CREDIBILITY than the low info news customers.

    Think about it like this Fred: During the George Bush years, the press corps asked tough questions of the press secretaries. They raked Dana Perino over the coals every day. Now? Only FoxNews and occasionally Jake Tapper asks tough questions. And Jake was ridiculed for it. Fox has to be marginalized and they’ve done a good job of it.

    Media has lost all credibility with 70% of the public. the other 30% are democrats at all cost. We’re in for a hell of a fight.

    Fred,

    One of your best posts ever, at least IMHO it is. Very well said and I switched to Independent last year. I agree that it will be extremely tough to support any GOP candidate from here on out.

    I will be re-posting this later today at PC and keep it at the top of the feed for a few days. That is how good I think this posts of yours is.

    Fred, Thank You!

    Like many who read this blog I to was very disappointed in the Representatives of this great land. The way I see it they no longer represent the people as was visioned by the founders. These men and women are in complete violation of the sworn oath they took upon entering office. It is clear now that they represent only the Party to which they are affiliated. Such a shame.

    I ponder what the next 18 or so months will yield under this regime and if the past is a vision of the future we’re in for a rough period. I’m 68 years old and a disabled Veteran of the Vietnam war. I was ridiculed and disrespected by these same leftist POS that hold high elected office today. This (Agent Orange) cancer riddled old man can’t do a whole lot these days other than spew expletives at the TV and radio but I’m not going to lay down and make it easy for them one bit.

    In the next 18 months I have decided I will put everything that is non-essential to me and my family on the back burner and dedicate myself to what ever I can to defeat these RINO’s and Libitards. I will lend my time, talent to what ever organization that seeks this same result. In 1965-66 I put my life on hold for 16 months for someone Else’s country. Well, I’ll do 18 months standing on my head for the land my father adopted as his own a half a century ago.

    Fred these a$$holes are going down

    Cross posted to PC and thank you, Fred.

    You said…”Blogs such as this have seen a huge downturn in readership and support “…I was wondering about that. You think it’s because of finding out about NSA recording every snippet of conversation? Gosh, I’ve even stopped getting emails to me here in Florida from relatives in Oklahoma and Mississippi. What was that Nat King Cole song…It was intimidation?

  14. I’m not a Republican, literally and figuratively. Literally, I’m an Independent. And figuratively I’m a Conservative. I am not, however, a member of any TEA Party.
