    Re: Obama blames media for 'caricature'

    You have to wonder though. Didn't Obama get elected twice by a comfortable margin? Didn't he get his ACA initiative passed, albeit with 100% Democrat votes? Limbaugh and Fox News and John Boehner weren't able to prevent that. So how does he figure they have the power to make Obamacare the disaster it has been or that they have prevented him from pushing and/or accomplishing his other pet initiatives?

    A lot of people in this country have turned anger and outrage into a way of life. Being angry and pissed off is normal, in other words. (This is true on both sides of the spectrum by the way) and for fox to capitalize on that market, they have to keep up the hype which results in distorted portrayals of information. However it's not fox's fault. Again a lot of people simply want to be angry and will gravitate to whatever justifies it rather than deal with what is making them unhappy, which is the decline if the American empire in most cases. Which isn't really anybody's or any ideology's fault
    yeah, it's weird that people seem to assume these media outlets invented their demographic, as opposed to simply catering to them. Though, I am sure it's not without coincidence the people that complain about this the loudest are also those that openly indulge in it (though from the opposite end of the spectrum)

    While there is certainly racists that hate Obama, partisan politics are, unsurprisingly, usually about politics

    And the only way Obama could ever try is to go to the place where they make money manipulating what he said?

    Surely that strikes you as ridiculous.

    The GOP has plenty of power to disrupt Obamacare on the state level. How many states refused to expand Medicare or set up exchanges?

    Marxist. Hates America. "Pals around with terrorists." "Apologizes for America." Bowed to Raul Castro. Narcissist. Death Panels. Affirmative Action president. Only got elected because he's black. Coming for your guns. That's just scratching the surface.
