The media is doing their best to cover the backside of a President who seems determined to push his narrative and punish those who refuse to go along for the ride. We all know about Bob Woodward and the veiled non-threat that was aimed in his direction. The Obama White House made it very clear how they felt about his revelation that it was Obama and the Democrats who came up with the idea of the sequester.
That just didn’t fit the picture they wanted to display to the American people and they went into full attack mode on Woodward, a respected journalist, even if he does lean to the left. Now, we have another revelation from Lanny Davis, who was the White House General Counsel under Bill Clinton. It seems the threats to Bob Woodward were the first time the Obama White House tried to bully a reporter. This comes from Hot Air. Watch the video to see for yourself.
It seems the Obama White House has more than one bully on its staff. Yes, I know President Obama may or may not be aware of the tactics being used by his people. Having said that, let’s step back and examine the situation for a moment. Before we grant Obama complete immunity to the actions of the people he has hired, let us remember how he has conducted himself throughout the four years he has been in the White House. It is clear that he likes to control the relationship between himself and the media. How long has it been since he held a real news conference and answered real questions from real reporters? He would rather appear on venues like The View and MTV. Anyone who has paid the slightest bit of attention since Obama became President knows one thing. This President is more than a little thin-skinned. He doesn’t like to be challenged by anyone. Friend, opponent, or reporter, Obama likes to have it his way. Can anyone look at how this is transpiring and honestly not see the attitude of the man at the top bleeding down to the people who work for him? If so, then you need to remove the blinders.
President Obama is not perfect. I don’t care that he is the first black President, he isn’t God, or anything close to God. Isn’t it time we realized just how much of a man President Obama really is? It would do us all a world of good if the media would suddenly find its backbone and start reporting on this President, as they have done to so many before him. At the very least, it would provide transparency through the veil that surrounds the Obama White House. Who knows, the media might even realize Obama can’t walk on water.
