Obama in his continuing rage is blaming bars and restaurants that have FoxNews on TVs.

He claims people watching were influenced !!!

These meatheads just can't make any sense out of the election results.

Sadly, a lot of people actually voted for Democrat Clinton.

Worse yet, I bet Obama thinks if CNN and MSNBC were on those TVs, Hillary would have won.



Obama Slams Flyover Nation As Barflies Who Watch Fox

Democrats had all of network news, Hollywood, fashion, and the publishing industry as platforms they controlled but they lost, says Obama, because of that damned Fox News in bars.

In this election, [white working class voters] turned out in huge numbers for Trump. And I think that part of it has to do with our inability, our failure, to reach those voters effectively. Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country, but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments. That part of the critique of the Democratic Party is accurate. We spend a lot of time focused on international policy and national policy and less time being on the ground. And when we’re on the ground, we do well.

Wait -- I thought they said that they lost because of James Comey?

Is this the "blame-du-jour"? I guess the last one didn't stick, gotta come up with a new one. Perhaps in 4 years they will finally get to "we offended a large silent majority by calling them deplorable"?


Naaaaaaaaaaaaahhh... That is too short a time frame. Especially given some of the ATS members here that are still insulting and demeaning that voting base.

SMH.....

Greg Hunters latest with Paul Craig Roberts is a funny one as they start off talking about the list . Greg is a bit disappointed that he didn't make the list while PCR brings up his piece about being a Russian troll . I had read PCR^piece and found it quite funny . Its really hard to describe how the MSM are responding other then bizarre .



November 29, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - Dear President Putin, Now that CIA agent Craig Timberg posing as a Washington Post reporter has blown my cover and exposed me as a Russian agent, I was wondering if I might ask you for a Russian passport and a bit of diplomatic cover, perhaps assistant press officer at the Russian embassy in Washington, until I can get out of the country. I saw that you gave a passport to Steven Seagal, so I am hopeful that being a Russian agent is as important as teaching martial arts to Russians. I don’t know what the pay scale for Russian agents is, but whatever I have coming to me please deposit in a Russian bank. The Swiss banks are no longer useful as the Swiss government allowed Washington to write its banking laws. Perhaps also you could line me up with a publisher for my memoirs—“My Life As A Putin Stooge.”

I just consider the source, Obama. He's a Facio-Socialist. He's out, Klinton is out, and the people have spoken.
GOD Bless and long live The USA and it's people.

SnF!

The thought that people see through their BS must not be registering. Wikileaks, Benghazi, Home server and sending receiving classified info as well as perjury just doesn't compute.

So it appears he is saying that the "propaganda" of the right was much more powerful and effective than the "propaganda" of the left, and that's not fair! HAHAHA!

Never mind how the truth and seeing through the real lies was most of why he lost all his bets. Obama and Hillary only had rotten eggs in their baskets.

They lost because of Hillary, period.

Not sure why anyone needs to look beyond that to make sense of it all...

You even quoted the part where he goes on to state that the problem was that the grass roots movement was not there...

I think it's a little disingenuous to take the bar and restaurant segment and hold it up as the main thrust of the piece.

A valid point. However, the fact that he stated it means he thought about it, the statement was approved, and overpowers the secondary grassroots statement. It was wholly unneeded in the public statement. Another faux-pas and total disconnect from the voters. It merely reinforces that idea.

When Obama came into office, he went on a world wide apology tour blaming America for everything under the sun.

As Obama is leaving, is he going to do an excuses tour blaming Fox News and everybody else for the Dems losing?

Meanwhile, Trump is kicking off a "Thank You" tour.....gotta love it.

Obama is always LYING about pretty much everything, and since lies have to be "built up" and supported with more lies, it takes steady streams of propaganda and fake news put out like CNN being his mouthpiece does to be effective, but the problem is people are not just EEPROM's like he thinks they are, (Erasable electronic programmable read only memory's)

People are more like error correcting ram memory, and can discover their error's when they have supported liars like Obama, and then finally make corrections to their programming by learning the truth and blocking further MSM attempts at programming them.

This is why Obama blames news sites or people rather than that he is always lying like CNN, that are his opposites because he doesn't factor in anyone's ability to see through all the deceit and lies which are what his crap is made up of on CNN and elsewhere. He see's the truth as his opponent that FOX news is telling people, not that they always tell the truth, but this is Obama's point he is trying to make. When people learn the truth, Obama immediately blames Fox news or whatever which is revealing all by itself.

Odd analogy perhaps, but it seems to make the point.

His excuse for why they lost is just more proof at how out of touch they are with America.

His excuse implies that the flyover part of the nation is full of people who just sit around at bars and restaurants watching fox news.
I guess he still doesn`t understand that all those hard working americans in the flyover part of the nation have been ignored for too long by the democrat party,the democrate party no longer represents those people and there are a lot of those people and obviously they do vote.

But the bar and restaurant part shows how incredibly stupid Obama is.

Hillary made the same stupid mistake by casting millions of people into her now famous baskets and buckets.

Obama IS a smooth-talking very articulate man. But, we have learned the hard way that the ability to articulate smoothly does NOT necessarily make one smart and it especially doesn't make one a real leader, but it tends to fool a lot of people.

I am in the deep south (everglades florida) and am a frequenter of the local watering holes.

I aint gonna lie. Fox News is always on in most of them right at the bar. I guess its the happy middleground for the drunk rednecks to not yell too much at the TV..normally its just sports though.

Obama mentioned that, yeah..and the counter of how thats an absurd notion that somehow if msnbc would be on, it would change peoples minds. People dont go to local bars to become informed. They will go and reinforce their prejudices and thats about it.

Obama hit it right when he said the Dems had no ground game in the woods though. Hard to feel united with them when you got people saying white non city folks are a bunch of dumb racists...not the best selling point.

Yeah, not sure how they lost the everyday joe in the burbs and country vote.

If Obama wants to restructure the party to be more relevant to the joes outside of cities, he needs to come down with a heavy fist on the smarmy elitism and intolerant snowflakes that has become the defacto view of what constitutes the average "liberal" today (progressive)
