The *Quest* continues !!

Obama is blaming Fox News and Rush Limbaugh and the likes of other "conservatives" for somehow successfully portraying the poor guy in negative ways by using ..........

[= wait for a new word =] ....

" caricature "



He claims the existing gridlock is due to the fact nobody seems to be able to penetrate the Republican base !!!

Brilliant.

With all the problems the government can't solve, you would think Obama should be addressing things other than his feeble excuses for failure.

By the way, what exactly *HAS* Obama done that affects the majority of American citizens in positive ways ??

He also says the *caricature* is unrealistic.
Obama blames media for 'caricature'



President Obama said that gridlock on Capitol Hill stemmed from an inability to "penetrate the Republican base" and convince voters there that he's "not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh," rather than his oft-questioned willingness to socialize with lawmakers.

In bonus excerpts from an interview with The New Yorker's David Remnick, Obama conceded that there was "no doubt that personal relationships matter at the margins and can tip something over the finish line," and admitted that he "wasn't in a position to work the social scene in Washington" as the father of two young girls.

But he said comparisons to presidents like Ronald Reagan and Lyndon Johnson were unfair in an era of polarized parties and gerrymandered districts.



It must be "Calculated Caricature"

Dear xuenchen,

I'm a little surprised by two things in your OP. One is that our President doesn't seem to accept responsibility for anything. I don't expect any man, or group of men, with as many decisions to make as they have, to never make a bad decision. Every once in a while every administration will make the wrong call and the people will hear about it. I don't see the problem in admitting it.

The other thing that struck me was this statement from our President:

Obama conceded that there was "no doubt that personal relationships matter at the margins and can tip something over the finish line," and admitted that he "wasn't in a position to work the social scene in Washington" as the father of two young girls.
Unless I'm mistaken, he's saying that personal relationships matter, but he's not going to bother with them, because he's "Parenting?" I'm beginning to think that having children under the age of 18 should be a disqualifier, at least if Obama's right that he can't do his job completely because of his kids.

With respect,
Charles1952

Some people just don't have the ability to accept blame or fault in anything. Oblamo is one of them. Using obscure and/or made up words is just a feeble attempt to confuse others.

As much as I despise Obama as an individual, mostly because as a Constitutional lawyer, well, he should just know better. The POTUS at any given time is simply just a symptom of the chronic illness of corporate tyranny.

The president isn't fast tracking America into a police state because the president doesn't hold any "real" power. Every move that he makes is at the behest, advice and guidance of others. Those other people are the ones who control things like.... Hmmm, The Federal Reserve, International Monetary Fund, Global bank heads of the United Nations and lobbyists at the highest levels for big oil, big pharma and big insurance.

Those are the people through money, connections, political influence and massive lobbyism that run the country and in truth, Obama really is just a caricature. Until people understand just how complex big business and politics are intertwined and related and is the reason why seemingly asinine legislation is passed on a daily basis, we have no hope.

I was going to go into this long winded post about why he's such an easy target for ridicule and then changed my mind. Basically he's just another tool who hates what America stands for and there were a couple just like him before he became POTUS.

It has always seemed to me like Oblama's criteria for passing or supporting any new law or bill is if it violates the constitution. If it does, then he supports it. How he can turn it into an unfair portrayal by conservatives sounds just like his normal methods.

The way he shifts blame or cause for things is like what a really good magician would do with slight of hand. He seems good at it, either that, or his targeted audience are too simple minded to know they are being fooled. Or they are pretending. I think the MSM are doing that a lot, just pretending.

Well I'm not saying Obama is blameless or that there isn't gridlock caused by the democrats in congress but...he's not wrong here. The Right wing media is portraying Obama as a Caricature. Just listen to Hannity and Limbaugh and Ann Colture and the others and Millions of people do and they believe this picture of Obama that the right wing media has created. What they have created isn't a real image of Obama, but a caricature. IN fairness Bush got the same treatment from the left. He was a Caricature as well by the time he left office. If you believe talk radio though, Obama's biggest issue was Benghazi where 4 people died. (forgetting that thousands of people died in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I suppose those 4 were more special than the rest?) he's a fascist and a communist and a socialist. Not a blending of those ideals into a new philosophy but he actually is all three at the same time! lol He really wants to take all your guns, destroy the economy and rule the world with his evil Obama Care creation, spends more money and time on vacation than every other president in history combined and so on.

None of that crap is really true and it really makes Obama seem like a weird creepy guy who's trying to take over the world but and it wouldn't be such a big deal except that millions of under educated Americans believe it.

It's all propaganda.

I think he is correct in that Fox News and other sources portray him as a caricature.

You have to be blind if you can't see the pathetic bias from Fox News.

Here is how Fox news handles things:

"Let's analyse Obama-Care! We won't worry about getting a Democrat on here to speak about it, but we will get Mitt Romney, who just so happened to be Obama's chief competitor last election!"

It isn't only Fox News though. You get other organisations sticking up for Obama...

The bias shown by such news organisations is absolutely disgusting...too bad Fox News seems to be rubbing off on a lot of ATSers.

Sad thing is we see Obama admitting hardly ANYTHING was done wrong.
So, you can see the irony, and lack of accountability in that.
Right?

Maybe he's not familiar with caricature, but generally they just exaggerate real aspects of a person where you can maintain recognition of them via exaggerated details.

So if its a negative caricature but no ones is saying "that doesnt sound one bit like Obama" then it probably means he has obvious negative attributes.

Oh cry me a river....*wah, wah, wah*


Same BS , different day
It's always someone's fault and the big bad GOP media are after Obama

Can't help but wonder what the hell he thought being president was going to be like??????????
If he doesn't like critique, he shouldn't have run for re-election

Well, you know what they say ---
'If you can't run with the big dawgs, stay out of the kitchen'

Any and all presidents are prone to character attacks by MSM, this is nothing new
Both of the Bush's and Bill Clinton had their fair share of media attacks
Only Obama thinks he's supposed to be handled with kid gloves and held up on a silver platter
One would think his skin would have gotten thick over time

So, are you saying Forbes is as bad as FOX NEWS?
Coverage Expansion Fails
Obamacare, A Minus For Hospitas
Wh y Obamacare Fails the Middle Class
Other False Hood Under Obamacare
No, you can't keep your drugs either under obamacare
Not just FOX NEWS, you want me to find something from your Democrat Favorited like HUFF?
It's hard to add a baby to obamacare
prolem with security
Obamacare making coverage Worse
Obamacare still leaves 104,000 hanging
Nasty Surprise awaits people who thought they had

That's just a few recently from Huff,,,, and there are other media out lets as well, I don't think NPR would ever say anything Negative about Obama, But they wouldn't want to tell the Truth and Offend Their Wallet!!
I don't see any news outlets any more Bias than the next.

so your simple answer is what??...Obama should just step down?...bow at the feet of the republicans?....this is just another daily "Obama bad" thread....I didn't even read in what context this applies, because it has become so redundant and boring, that it doesn't matter anymore

HE is putting forth the suggestions.
