    Balls afire! He stands up to FOXNEWS... trying to marginalize their reporting so other networks don't follow suit... but he is like a lamb when dealing with our adversaries and our national security.

    He shelves missle defense in Poland/Czech after saying he wouldn't... and gets nothing for this dumb move... he is friendly with despots, and goes to the table with Iran.

    Our Resident in the White House. Hopefully the fastest lame duck in history.

    Man... he has balls... LOL.
    I really wonder if Jesse Jackson did "cut his nuts out"... so lame is our Resident. With his endless stream of dumb moves, one could start to believe we Americans are the enemy.

    "Diplomacy" is just a word to you isn't it?

    You know America - will ye or nil ye - DOES live within a global culture that is becoming increasingly interdependent

    Well, yes - now have I thanked you Americans lately for taking Murdoch off of our hands for us?

    If false, they can present evidence to the contrary. Please do not misrepresent or spin what I say. In the end, the WH has well better things to be doing than feuding with a news agency. But they can most certainly defend themselves with the truth. Not fascism.

    fox would love for it to be a war, but obama won't take it that far.
    when he tells his people to suggest to the media pool not to follow news stories fox is leading with.....he is taking it too far.

    The media doesn't work that way and perception is reality.

    Reality is reality. Perception is just individual measurements thereof. It doesn't change the fact that the government cannot act in fascist, statist ways against the Press. He's the President, he has plenty of access to the public. If he feels he's been misrepresented, he can use the truth to clear his name. That's it.

    Re: Obama suggests Fox News is like 'talk radio'

    "Defending himself" would be refuting Fox News on the facts. "Defending himself" would be explaining how they got it wrong.

    As I said in another thread, what would be more devastating to Fox than Administration people coming on to their airwaves and taking them down on their own terms? If Fox lies so much, it shouldn't be hard, and they can set the condition that it be live and unedited.

    That would be "defending himself."

    But they're waging a classic discredit, isolate, and destroy campaign.

    Cool Re: Obama suggests Fox News is like 'talk radio'

    Politically Perfect

    I am honestly not a politically well motivated type of person. I don't know much about our President Obama, not even how the politics run. But I am a law abiding citizen, concern about our country. It's sad to say that a lot of people is against our President Obama. I am trying to read every post and mostly were really full of bitterness about our President Obama's Administration. The question is, what can we do now? His the man in charge to rule in our Country. What make us think he can never be a good president? I am trying to be fair to anyone, I just want to have enough understanding about our President Obama's administration. What are the reasons that made us think he doesn't deserve being the President of America? Are we just being a fault finder? a critic? Infairness with Fox News, I think, they are really a great media, because they keep us aware about everything especially about the Administration of our President Obama.
