Harry Truman had a sign on his desk that said “The Buck Stops Here.”
Barack Obama’s sign, if he had one, would say, “What the Buck!”
As you know, Obama has blamed everybody else for everything during his seven plus year run at being Napoleon. This one takes the cake.
During a press conference, Obama repeatedly urged Americans not to be afraid of terrorism, and spoke directly to reporters.
“The media needs to help in this,” he said, admitting that it has been a “difficult week,” with the threat posed by ISIS becoming a primary focus in the media.
“One of the things that has to happen is how we report on this has to maintain perspective, and not empower in any way these terrorist organizations or elevate them in ways that make it easier for them to recruit or make them stronger,” he said.
Somehow the picture of Obama lecturing the Press Corps, who have been protecting him with their lives for the last ten years, on “perspective” wrecked my breakfast.
They should have been reporting on the perspective of record numbers of people leaving the workforce because the ObamaEconomy is only generating part time jobs. Or the perspective of the middle class, what’s left of it, who have seen family incomes drop every year for the past seven years. Or maybe the debacle known as ObamaCare. It’s raised the cost of medical insurance for just about every family in America and it’s on the verge of imploding as the “non-profit” insurance groups Obama set up fail and insurers are bailing out because they’re losing their shirts.
And by-the-way, the US media isn’t responsible for foreign policy, you are. Not that you’d know it, of course.
