Fox News Hosts Flip Out After President Obama Takes Jab at Network (Videos)

fox-news-whiningNothing like a network that spends most of its time doing whatever it can to blame President Obama for anything and everything that’s going on in this world, throwing a hissy fit because he happened to take a direct shot at their ridiculousness.


But that’s exactly what several Fox News hosts did following a jab the president took at the network while speaking about the success of the Affordable Care Act.

The president said, “While good, affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News, it’s working pretty well in the real world.”

For a network that bases a large part of its “news” on fiction rather than reality, it was clear they weren’t going to take this comment well.

Greta Van Susteren whined, saying that Obama needed to stop picking fights with Fox News and that he was not acting very “presidential.” She also called him “childish” and claimed that he was blaming the network for his own incompetence.

Laura Ingraham said he was making these remarks to mask the fact that “liberalism, Obama-style, is failing.”

While Greg Gutfeld said, “He bashes FNC more than ISIS, and we don’t behead anybody.”

You would think a network that resembles an anti-Obama tabloid more than it does a legitimate cable news channel would be able to “roll with the punches” when it comes to comments such as these. But like a true bully (not that Fox News can bully the president, but they have the same types of tendencies as a bully), everything is fine as long as whatever they’re saying or doing goes unopposed. If those actions bring about some kind of negative response directed at their behavior, then they’re usually the biggest whiners out of anyone.

I’m absolutely thrilled to see the president making comments such as these. Especially when it comes to the Affordable Care Act. Because despite its rocky rollout, it turned out to be a massive success. But due to the nearly 6 year campaign of misinformation Republicans and the conservative media have levied against the health care law, most Americans (even many who support it) aren’t even aware of its success.


And make no mistake about it, the law has been a success.

But it’s not at all shocking to see Fox News personalities throw a slight temper-tantrum when it comes to President Obama ribbing the network a little bit. They’re a hateful, bitter, cynical, fear-mongering faux “news” channel that nobody should really take seriously. But, sadly, millions of Americans do.

    Fox “News”: Mr. Obama (note: never President Obama) is an egotistical, tyrant that hates America and everything it stands for, and is actively trying to destroy it and turn our beloved country into a third-world cesspool!

    President Obama: Fox “News” is wrong.

    Fox “News”: Why is Obama being so mean to us!!! How rude! Typical Democrat! You’d never hear a Republican president (host makes the sign of the cross) say such dishonest, degrading things about our American-loving cable network!

    That about sums it up.

    • nivek5913

      How many Republican presidents complained about the press in my lifetime? Lets see: Richard Nixon Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, and George W. Bush. I’m 54 and too young to remember Eisenhower when he was in office, but I’m sure that he did too…..

      • jonjstrine42

        nivek, I don’t doubt that at all. But they were Republicans, so apparently it’s okay if they do it. Because, “liberal media” and all (even though “liberal media” is a big of a lie as “Iraq has WMD”).

      • barefoot bob

        don’t forget “Tricky Dick” Nixon.

      • Cliff Herring

        Well,EVERYBODY tries to forget HIM! I believe that Eisenhower was the last LEGITIMATELY elected Republican to the office. The press,before W came along,WAS pretty fair and grilled Rep. and Dem. equally. But after ’96 when Clinton signed away the telecoms in the deregulation act of that year,90% of media is now right wing owned and slanted. As early as 1969 when Nixon was in office,Roger Ailes floated the idea of “GOP TV”. Well,it took years but it has come to pass!

      • barefoot bob

        You are so right on Cliff, glad someone else has been paying attention.

      • Paul Julian Gould

        Well, Pat Buchanan still likes him, but still…

      • Steve Brains

        It has, but Nixon (no matter how hard he TRIED to corrupt the election, did not actually succeed) Reagan and Bush 1 were all pretty handily elected fairly.

      • bimmerbro

        Don’t forget Agnew’s “nattering nabobs of negativiity”!

        What a triumph for alliteration!

      • Steve Brains

        That wasn’t Agnew. That was Fred Thompson the actor.

      • Darkthunder

        A Republican actor, I might add 🙂

      • Steve Brains

        A severely RED nutball.

      • anthonyadams

        Thompson was also in the US Senate…as a Republican. If you watch Law and Order; Special Victims Unit, you can occasionally hear his conservative dialog about the Constitution and the president (who was Bush at the time).

      • aka Eric Blair

        bimmerbro is correct. “Nattering Nabobs of Negativism” was coined by speech writer William Safire and Agnew used it in a speech. I remember watching the news at the time. Fred Thompson came along later during the Watergate hearings.

      • Fernando

        Peggy Noonan is the culprit that made up the phrase!

      • aka Eric Blair

        Fernando, could you please cite your source?

      • anthonyadams

        Sorry, Steve….is WAS Agnew (I was around then).

      • Steve Brains

        I have been replying through DISCUS and they are NOT sending then to HERE. I will skip ti the actual page from now on.

        I was too, and I remember the grown ups reading him at the tabel and discussing Kennedy and Humphrey on June 5, 1968 when we heard it on the TV. May have been a worse loss than JFK.

        Do you think Reaganomics could have happened if Bobbie had gotten us OUT of Militarization and perpetual WAR FOR PROFIT and gotten us into really helping each other… HELP each other until Disco destroyed the world?

        William Safire, had a column in the Washington Post. A magnificent wordsmith and he could phrase a description that would STRIKE you and stick with you. Thanks you for reminding Me.

        Or something like it was what I replied.

        SO, it looks like I have been the only one who was enjoying Me yestterday.

      Fox “News”: Mr. Obama (note: never President Obama)

      How many headlines from Fox referring to him as ‘President Obama’ that I could post would it take for you to retract that statement and admit you were wrong?

      How often do you think this blog and it’s commentariat refers to GWB as ‘Predident Bush’?

      • jonjstrine42

        Ivan, I will admit to a dose of hyperbole in regards to them “never” calling him President Obama. And I will even admit that there are those on here that only refer to President Bush as GWB or just Dubya. I, however, do use President Bush. Sometimes, in a hurry, I will confess to using his initials, but not that often. Is that satisfactory?
        Now, how about addressing the fact that the folks at Fox “News” are moaning about President Obama being mean to them, while doing everything in their power since January 20, 2009 to sabotage his presidency and openly rooting for his failure? Can you address the fact that Fox badmouths this president at every turn, makes good news sound like the end of the world, and purposefully and with all due intent fabricates stories about him on an almost daily basis, and then gets their panties in a bunch he he properly points this fact out?

      • Ivan Renko

        They’re skeptical if this president, yes. Good journalists should be. Most, however, are afraid to be, and until recently, have been with President Obama. You shouldn’t be afraid of skepticism, or scornful of it. Obama’s jab there was phoniness. Fox isn’t his problem. He needs Fix as a foul just as much this blig does. It’s why I don’t get why you guys try to act disgusted at Fox, when it’s obvious you like them doing what they do for your daily congregations here.

      • jonjstrine42

        No, Ivan. You’ve got it all wrong. As far as I’m concerned, I am disgusted with Fox. There is nothing phony about my outrage at their blatant attempts to undermine a duly elected president. And face facts, that’s what it is. Can you point to one, just one segment on President Obama that you could say was a positive story? Just one? There’s skepticism, and then there’s fear-mongering. And Fox deals in the latter.

        (edited for grammar.)

      • Ivan Renko

        Can you point to one, just one segment on President Obama that you could say was a positive story?

        He’s been given much credit and positive news about his campaigning capabilities. That is well documented.

        Also for his speaking ability.

        Pew Research did a study that documented that Fox was indeed very tough on Obama in the last election, but MSNBC was far tougher on Romney, by far. Did that outrage you?

      • jonjstrine42

        i asked for a specific example of a positive story on him. Not them complimenting him on his campaigning. That’s not a segment. That’s a statement. Please, try again.
        And please site your source for your dubious claim that MSNBC was tougher on Romney than Fox was to Obama. How can you be tougher than 100% negative stories? So, no source, no credibility.

      • Ivan Renko

        This site doesn’t allow links.

        Google ‘Slate + MSNBC Hates Romney Even More Than Fox News Hates Obama’

      • Cliff Herring

        Again,Ivan..jonjstrine42 asked for”a positive story FROM FOX about Obama”. Never mind who’s tougher on who. Stop changing the subject and deflecting..classic Republican tactics. Answer the question..can you point to even ONE positive story that Fox did on the President? I doubt it. He could cure CANCER,and they’d rip him to shreds about all the doctors he put out of work!

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        Ivan doesn’t reply when U have him painted into a corner

      • jonjstrine42

        Ivan, I’ll give you this one. According to the Pew Research Center, “71% of the [MSNBC] segments studied about Romney were negative in
        nature, compared with just 3% that were positive — a ratio of roughly
        23-to-1.” On Fox News, 46% of Obama segments were negative, with only 6%
        positive.”
        So during the election, Fox ran some positive stories about President Obama. Admitted. And MSNBC was more harsh to Romney than Fox was to Obama. Again, admitted. But how many of those positive stories on Fox were because of his campaigning and speaking, as you noted earlier, and how many were being positive about his policies and politics? Moving the goalposts? A bit, yes. But it’s still a legitimate question.

      • Ivan Renko

        No, not really. It’s not a legitimate question if you come here to join the daily Fox-bashing chorus and then claim your outrage is sincere. All you have to do is simply not watch them, but you obviously do. I don’t go to conservative blogs to bitch about MSNBC because you know what, I can admit that often I do enjoy watching the channel, even though I seldom agree. I’m entertained by watching Ed Shultz hyperventilate. I will watch Al Sharpton just to hear him stumble over words. But neither of them makes me mad, or want to go to a blog to vent how dishonest I think those two are. I think Rachel Maddow very often makes very good, compelling cases. I like her style. I disagree with her, and I don’t always like the way she frames an issue, but she’s smart as a whip and I wish she was on the other side. Seriously, I just don’t get the daily obsession with a freaking news channel here, and I think Obama cheapens himself and the office of the presidency taking stabs at them like he did at Northwestern.

        Coincidentally, he was in my hometown yesterday after being in Evanston the day before (Evanston to Evansville). I haven’t lived back there for a long time, but I did think it was cool that some of my old grade school friends posted pictures of both my old elementary school and high schools outside waving to his motorcade as it drove by.

      • jonjstrine42

        The “obsession” with Fox is that they aren’t an honest broker of factual information. I don’t like being lied to on a regular basis. That’s why I don’t like Fox. Call it an obsession if you so choose. But I’d just like them to be honest about this president for a change. Is that too much to ask?
        And as I said below, I don’t watch any cable news. It’s all slanted. I’ll admit that much. But the others slanting their news don’t call themselves “Fair & Balanced”.

      • Ivan Renko

        NO, it’s not too much to ask, but they aren’t going to change as long as they get people like you to watch them hoping they do change.

        Do you think Allen Clifton’s daily supply of Fox outrage as red meat for the folks here is going to make a dent in programming and opinions expressed by Fox commentators?

      • jonjstrine42

        How many times do I have to tell you that I don’t watch Fox? I really don’t. I’m not lying to you. It’s not what I do.

      • Ivan Renko

        Well then honestly, I really don’t get what your problem is. If your only observation of Fox News is what you get from the Media Matters/liberal blog model, then how could your opinions of them be fair and balanced, or objective?

      • jonjstrine42

        I have watched them in the past, and I have seen no evidence of a change in their past behavior. My problem is lies. They peddle them to people that, in all honestly, want to be lied to. It’s confirmation bias. Journalism as an entity is dying, not just on Fox. But again, I firmly believe that Fox is the worst offender and the facts do back this up. When MSNBC makes an error, they admit it. Fox makes things up out of whole cloth, then double down on it when called out. Do you deny this? Do you recall when they aired a GOP talking points memo word for word, typo included, and when called out apologized only for the typo? That actually happened. That is not fair nor balanced. They lie by saying they’re objective, but they air GOP talking points verbatim. That’s not being objective. It’s being biased and blatantly lying. As biased as MSNBC may be, do you recall them airing Democratic talking point memos word for word and trying to pass it off as news? I don’t.
        I don’t like lies or liars. I’m always willing to listen to other opinions, but as soon as something demonstratively false comes out of their mouth, I do have a habit of losing it a little. And Fox lies. Simple as that. Yes, they make good money out of it, but what price glory?

        Ivan, I’m going to leave it here. I have actually enjoyed our little tête-à-tête. I hope you understand that it’s not just Fox I have an issue with, but lying in general. That’s my main point. And, as this article shows (wow, we kinda strayed from the topic, didn’t we?), if Fox is going to dish it out, then they should have the backbone to be able to take it when it comes back to them. If they want to lie, be prepared to be called out for said lies.
        I sincerely hope we can do this again sometime. And for the record, I don’t think you’re a troll. 🙂

      • Ivan Renko

        I understand that, and also enjoyed the chat. Fox does take it. Obama saying that is good for their business. It’s good for his business, too. It’s good for everyone reporting on it. Everyone uses it to their own means. You and I are just observers. Obama knows it gives him an opportunity to liven up his speech and gets him applause, Fox knows they can use it to respond how they wish knowing every response gets posted to both liberal and conservative blog, and around and around the world turns.

        olbermann ruled and kept FOX “news” on their heels

      • Ivan Renko

        1.President Obama was given lots of credit on Fox News for Bin Laden’s assassination.

        2. Also for the killing of the Somali pirates.

        3. Also for his Tuscon speech after the shootings that killed several and severely wounded Gaby Giffords.

        4. Bill O’Reilly frequently praises him for his help with the Wounder Warriors Project.

        5. Shepard Smith praised him for his evolution on gay marriage.

        You asked for one, there’s five. If you want more, just ask, but at least acknowledge you were wrong by implying Fox never praises anything about him. I’m not going to take the time to dig them up, but the 6:00 est roundtable hosted by Bret Baier often has one panelists that praise Obama. Juan Williams does on almost every appearance. So does Bob Beckel. As do Democratic strategists they have on every single day, multiple times a day.

        Seriously, what you’re claiming just isn’t true. They’re biased against him, but arguably no more so than MSNBC is against Republicans, less than that channel was against Romney, and far less than that channel was against President Bush when he was president. And I know of no conservative blogs that supply stories on MSNBC every single day like this blog does for Fox News so that commenters can get their daily rage on.

      • jonjstrine42

        “1.President Obama was given lots of credit on Fox News for Bin Laden’s assassination.”

        Don’t you mean to say that Fox gave President Bush lots of credit for Bin Laden’s assassination? Because that’s what really happened.

        “but the 6:00 est roundtable hosted by Bret Baier often has one panelists
        that praise Obama. Juan Williams does on almost every appearance. So
        does Bob Beckel. As do Democratic strategists they have on every single
        day, multiple times a day.”

        Having one Liberal voice for every four in opposition is not balanced nor fair. Just because a token Liberal or two gets some air time does not equate to positive coverage of this president. Joe Scarborough has his own show on MSNBC and people still cry how Liberal they are. Does the same rule apply? Can we state that MSNBC is fair to Republicans because they have a full show run by a conservative? And the most prominent Democratic strategist on Fox is Doug Schoen, who is a closet conservative. That one doesn’t even pass the smell test. And are they really on several times a day? Doubtful. If they are, it’s only to act as a punching bag.

        Now, what you listed above again wasn’t segments. They are statements. Yes, Shepard Smith did praise President Obama’s evolution on same-sex marriage. But did he run a full segment on it, or just mention it in passing?
        Also, out of curiosity, has O’Reilly ever had a full segment on Fox praising the president’s work on Wounded Warriors, or was it just mentioned off-hand during one of his “Talking Points”? There is a difference between statements and segments. Please provide a segment that was positive towards President Obama.

      • Ivan Renko

        OMG, are you seriously blowing a gasket because Fox News doesn’t provide you with entire segments praising Obama? Are you freaking kidding me? The rest of cable news and the MSM provides that for you, why are you pissed at Fox for not slobbering all over him for what, a full half hour? Just watch something else, jonjstrine. Cripes AllFriday.

      • jonjstrine42

        I’m not blowing a gasket, as you put it. I’m actually trying to have a calm, rational discussion with you. Some on here would call you a troll. I don’t. And it’s because I believe everyone can be engaged in a serious discussion if they are willing. You actually seem willing, at least to a point.
        I’m not asking for Fox to air segments “praising” President Obama. I’m asking for them to tell the truth about him. Positive employment numbers? Fox will tell you how bad they are. Bin Laden dead? All hail President Bush! Good health insurance numbers? The death panels are here! All I want is Fox to live up to its slogan. I want them to be fair and balanced. Is MSNBC fair and balanced? Nope. They sure aren’t. And I never claimed that they were. But you can’t deny not just the ideological bent of Fox, but the blatant fear-mongering and hatred they have towards the current president. Was MSNBC worse with Bush? It’s open for debate. But was President Bush ever called, on an almost daily basis, an Un-American, unpatriotic egomaniac who was trying to purposefully trying to destroy American and everything it stands for? Because that’s what Fox has been doing to the current president for the last six years. Do you deny this simple fact?
        Oh, and I don’t watch Fox, CNN or MSNBC. I don’t even have cable or Dish. I prefer to read my news rather than watch it.

      • Ivan Renko

        Yes, I do deny that. I think if you get your info about Fox on sites like this and the other liberal blogs that follow the same MMfA model, you would have that opinion of them. I don’t think they’re fair and balanced, but it’s a very clever masthead. You want them to live up to that slogan, and you know it’s not a 50-50 split, so you watch it for confirmation that they’re not fair and balanced. The bottom line is, you do watch them. As do many folks on here. Fox knows it pisses you off. I don’t tell you that to troll you, I tell you that to explain it’s a clever marketing masthead for them. They benefit by liberal blogs being outraged at them.

        Employment figures look good, but I don’t want someone feeding me hot air about those numbers when those numbers don’t tell the whole story, and I don’t consider it bias to be told that more and more people are giving up on getting jobs and dropping out of being counted among the unemployed. That shouldn’t bother you to be told that. Same with the dissatisfaction about ACA. So when Obama says ‘you know what, it’s working pretty well’, the truth is, it’s not working out all that well for a lot of folks who disagree with that.

      • jonjstrine42

        I have no issue with delving into the unemployment number in depth. But when the positive news is brushed aside so that the negative can be given the spotlight, it’s bias. And not everyone dropping out of the workforce is doing so because they’ve given up looking for work. The baby boomers are retiring, which is helping to drive up that number. Let me ask you this. Fox likes to use the U6 number on unemployment, falsely calling it the “real unemployment” number, even though the BLS says otherwise. Was this metric ever used during the previous administration as a gauge of unemployment? I can’t recall that ever happening before and I like to think I pay close attention to things like that.
        And yes, there have been issues with the ACA (and thank you for not calling it Obamacare and using the real name). But Fox likes to highlight the negative stories and ignore or cast doubt upon the positive.
        I don’t have a problem with giving the full story, warts and all. But when you’re only giving people the negative, or at least leaning on it more heavily, you’re doing an injustice to your viewers. Most people watch Fox for confirmation of their beliefs, just as I’m sure people do with MSNBC. It’s a problem on both sides. But Fox is the most egregious offender in this regard. It’s just the facts.

        why do U waste time with cretins such as IVAN? seriously???
        ask him if he–or his beloved FOX “news”– gives the credit where it belongs for the USA being MILES ahead of where we were in dec 2008.
        OH- and shall the lack of ANY help from republican congress be added to the recipe?
        GUARANTEED— — U slam him with CBO and US treasury facts and he will spin away and complain about U being on this liberal site

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        please notice below how IVAN the RENKO spun away from his initial( and erroneous) claim that U ” moved the goalposts”…
        (a) U asked for segments
        (b) he gave statements
        (c) he clouded ( see: obfuscate)
        (d) he falls back upon how FOX “news” is lambasted by liberals- yet when asked about FOX’s inability to place a segment on the POSITIVES of this administration he scoffs at that idea ( please note: FOX “news” does WHOLE shows upon their lopsided views of the “negatives” of this administration; sometimes fueling that for DAYS as they have nothing else- witness the ACA rollout or BENGHAZI or CLIVEN BUNDY : PATRIOT)
        expostulating with IVAN the RENKO is akin to my attempting to mentor my pet TEGU to transcribe and play Vivaldi upon a harpsichord; a waste of time

      • Ivan Renko

        Some did, not all. Obama himself gave Bush acknowledgement for his efforts putting in place the mechanisms and resources that helped in tracking him down. But not everyone there said Bush deserved all the credit.

      • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

        Fox news and the whole republican base made it quite clear from the very beginning of Pres. Obama’s presidency that they had one mission and that was to make sure that he was a one term president. That didn’t work so they then decided that no matter what issue was being discussed by the congress they would take the opposite view of it and veto everything they could. They have certainly kept their promise to the detriment of our country—–i/e shutting down out government costing taxpayers a huge amount of money. I have absolutely NO respect for a group of so called representatives pledging to screw up our government at a time when we needed cohesiveness more than ever.

      • Leigh

        Fox News doesn’t have journalists, Ivan – they aren’t about news. Fox is a money making machine feeding off the ignorance of others.

      • Ivan Renko

        That’s just not true, Leigh.

        See Manny Schewitz’ blog post of Sept. 18 here:

        “Why We Should Stop Calling All Republicans Dumb”.

        Read the whole thing. Strive to be more than just a drone here where everybody all sing to the exact same tune as conducted by the blogger.

      • Leigh

        I am no drone – Ivan – I read, research for myself – learn the issues (spent my career as a lobbyist for multinational corporations). I am no ignorant drone who takes what Fox puts out as “news”, or anything resembling fact as most of it is biased, divisive, yellow “journalistic” hyperbole. I am a lifelong Republican who thinks Fox “news” is the worst thing for our party to ever come along.

      • Leigh

        I am as free to comment here as you – and you are here on a “liberal” site espousing your views – just as I am. I didn’t say I blame Fox for ruining the party. I said I think they are the worst thing for the party – because their goal (besides making money) seems to be to promote a divisive America. In my opinion, any “thinking” person would see Fox for what it is. I won’t make disparaging comments about you – so please don’t make them about me.

      • Canuckledragger

        Holy crap, I didn’t think there was any of you folks left!

      • Paul Julian Gould

        I grew up around intelligent people of all political viewpoints, including my almost 95-year-old mother, who’s a lifelong Republican. I grew up around Los Angeles Superior Court judges among others that were old-school true conservatives… I’d say, from my own experience, that there are Republicans, then there are those Republicans who only get their news and views from Fox… not always the same thing at all… But those I know who fit the latter are consistently misinformed, ill-informed, pretty constantly pissed-off, and have no consideration at all that President Obama was legitimately elected, or even a citizen. It’s impossible to get beyond such views, let alone discuss any legitimate issues.

        Thank you for being a person of reason, Leigh… we’d quite possibly disagree on as much as we would agree, but you seem the sort of person that would consider such more matters of emphasis and terminology.

        A dear commenter on a couple of other blogs, about whom I’ve been concerned, as she seems to have disappeared from the earth, self-described as a conservative, and from all appearances, was exactly that, as the term means in its best and original way. (Lots of folks in my various circles of life that self-describe as conservative have no understanding of the term… in short, hardcore Tea Partiers who never grasped that pissed-off reactionary authoritarian is nowhere close to the same thing).

        She and I were in agreement that there’s really not a dime’s worth of difference between a true liberal and a true conservative… emphasis, priorities and terminology seemed to be the major differences.

      • Sandy Greer

        I enjoyed your post, but disagree on one point, if I may. I don’t know any Repubs who ‘only get their news and views from Fox’. I’ve seen those views expounded here – but don’t know any, personally, like that. I always wince when we say it. Seems condescending, and Elitist. I believe it self-defeating – It turns people away from us. JMHO, of course.

        I watch Fox: Fox News Sunday, Journal, and MediaBuzz on Sundays. Bill O’Reilly on occasion. He’s back-to-back here with Rachel Maddow – who is one smart cookie, and the best thing on MSNBC (again, my opinion)

        Also like Face the Nation, George Stephanopoulos,
        Meet the Press, and Bill Moyers on PBS.

        Other than that, I really enjoyed your post. You strike me as a very kind person. I look forward to seeing more of you in future.

      • Paul Julian Gould

        Thank you for your kind words, and glad to know you make your decisions on multiple sources…

        Thing is, I really do know people that fit my description… I rent my house from a family that fits my characterization, and chose to allow my Masonic membership to lapse rather than sit in lodge and try to be all brotherly with a number of brothers who fit the description… In Freemasonry, religious or political sectarianism is forbidden once the door’s closed and tyled, but that’s usually for only a couple of hours… The BS’in prior and after are another matter..

        It all probably has to do with my residing in Texas, with little redneck enclaves surrounding El Paso… Chaparral NM up the road has the double “benefit” of being both red as blood and the local meth capital… {*oog*}

        As someone living outside the US, Fox News is a complete farce. Most of their reporting bears little resemblance to the reality of any given situation, and their venomous treatment of President Obama is borderline sedition. I can tell you now that what the so-called US ‘liberal media’ reports, is far more accurate and less paranoid than Fox’s drivel. Do yourself a favour, and get out into the world. Then you’ll see Fox ‘News’ for the waste of space it is…

      • TeeDee

        I’ll say it again: I agree that liberals can engage in terrible name calling as well as the conservatives (but some on the far right can be downright vicious about political comments made by liberals.) They call Obama some of the filthiest names I’ve ever heard and talk about wanting to kill him and his family (he has the letters to prove it). But I sincerely hope none of those Obama haters are Christians because they are breaking a serious command in the Bible: they MUST pray for their governmental leaders and wish him or her well.
        ” First and foremost, the apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 2 commands us to pray for our governing leaders. In fact, just about every possible word for pray was used to communicate this truth. Further, we are not to pray for their demise. We are told that we pray in order that “we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” What does this mean? We pray for our leaders so we will will live in stable society that allows us to focus on worshiping God.”
        So if you’re a Conservative Christian (or any kind of Christian for that matter, you’d better be praying for him to do well and to live well or your place in ‘heaven’ is gone.

      • Ivan Renko

        Huh?

      • TeeDee

        ‘What are you confused about, Ivan? I’ve seen many, many comments on the internet from Christians saying the most hateful things about President Obama and also comments wishing he were dead.
        They obviously do not follow the commands by Jesus and his Apostles in the Bible because 1 Timothy 2:2 states that they must obey the command to “pray for their leaders” and never hope for their demise. Anyone who is in the leader position–Kings, Queens, Presidents, etc. are governmental leaders and must be prayed for. It’s quite simple if you read your Bible, so I can’t imagine why you so ‘eloquently’ replied: “huh.”

      • Ivan Renko

        I don’t ‘read my Bible’. I haven’t said anything about a Bible, nor Christianity. If you want rant incoherently, please don’t let me discourage you, but whatever it is you’re trying to say, it has nothing to do with what I’ve said.

Hating the power that one black president received out of 44 white presidents. The Republicans are a terrible story of nonfiction.

      • Canuckledragger

        Don’t be so fucking lazy and look up a few posts. You never sourced anything resembling facts in your lying rant.

      • Ivan Renko

        Specifics, please. Whiner.

      “Right now the Real Clear Politics average of polls for Obamacare favorability stands at 37% in favor, 51% opposed.”
      It’s easy to get numbers that support your opinion, when your source is a right wing conservative pantheon created by a conservative activist and a conservative advertising agency exec
      The only thing that is cheap and dishonest is ‘Fox News’ who is licensed as an entertainment channel

      • Ivan Renko

        It was easy to get it but it’s nothing more than a compilation of other polls averaged, similar to Nate Silver’s methodology that propelled him once upon a time into a liberal hero.

      • Canuckledragger

        But Nate Silver’s methodology has been pretty spot on most of the time, Ivan.

        I can see where you’d have problems accepting the truth and reality of that.

        Your ‘source’ is flat out lying. Like yourself and all your posts here.

      • Ivan Renko

        You haven’t been following politics, Canuckles. The Left has ditched Nate Silver as being no longer useful to their cause. He made the mistake of speaking his mind. They didn’t like that.

      • Canuckledragger

        No, that’s just another pathetic smear attempt by yourself to try and discredit the only guy that called the presidential election spot on.

        You really are pathetic.

    A success??? How is that possible ? Prior to it I could afford insurance for myself at about 100 a month and if I chose not to carry it then that was no big deal.

    After I can no longer afford it as it’s about 250 for just myself and if I chose not to get it then I get a penalty fee.

    A success for the insurance companies? That seems more believable.

    • Chris Biltz

      Well i dont know what fucking company your working for but my healthcare is very affordable.. Thank you and rates never went up.. MAYBE, this is the insurances way of getting more money from you.. This will all level out.. They figure well this person must have insurance so we will raise there rate well because we can! Its not Obama’s fault stop blaming shit on him.

      • seanozz

        I don’t work for a company and I never blamed anyone for anything. I just questioned how it’s considered successful when depending on what state you live in it’s actually more expensive to get insurance then it once was.

        Your shitty tone and attitude towards facts I stated was sure helpful btw. You must be so proud of who you are!

      • Cemetery Girl

        Yes, the state does matter because some states have actively (and proudly) worked in ways to try to make it a failure. There has to be a connection when some states people are seeing savings while others the prices are going up.

      • Chris Biltz

        Sorry for my Shitty tone, its just annoying how this man is being blamed for everything that has gone wrong 100% and even taking the good and great things he has done and turning them bad even though they were once for it. Im just simply saying that Health care providers are obviously not governed like they should be.. But The Affordable Care Act NOT Obamacare is working… However Providers do need to be regulated much like Gas companies.. Just Cause they can Raise the Gas price higher than they should because there the only station for miles is morally wrong.

      I bet your making that up.

  • Wow. Those guys *really* don’t know what’s going on. “Look! Here’s a clip of President Obama dissing us! How un-presidential!” And slowly, the leaks in their boat begin. If even 1 person says, “Hey, wait a minute. What?” and begins to question Fox’s various diatribes… The President should avail himself of this level of discourse more often. Get the truth out even through Fox.
    This guy’s good.

  • Gabriel Gentile

    To be fair, one has executive power, the other does not.

  • Sandy2814

    I didn’t hear him blaming anyone. He just stated a fact. He’s not allowed to state facts? FOX needs to start taking some responsibility for their own words if you ask me.

  • Marilyn Olsen Scheffler

    “He bashes FNC more than he does ISIS and we didn’t behead anybody”. Gee, could that be that none of their audience has a head worth anything anyway? If you beheaded any of your listeners there would be nothing that came out of the head—certainly nothing of value!!

  • openlyblack

    Actually, the lies and garbage that FOX News puts out is a kind of beheading … you’re better off without a head if you believe the crap they spout.

  • The Reader

    I have always heard that if you confront a bully, he or she will back off because they are actually cowards who must be aggressive first so no one will know how cowardly they really are. Looks like Fox bullies have proven such a claim as true.

  • Sarah

    So Fox can say whatever they please, but when Obama makes one crack, Fox turns and claims that they are victims and that Democrats are terrible people.

    • Ivan Renko

      Actually, none of those are true.

      Obama’s been blaming Fox News since he started in office. He’s always blaming someone. I just watched Greta’s video, not having seen it till posted here, and I think she pretty much hit the nail on the head. Liberals frustrated with this president who hate Fox will of course love that he took a stab at the network, but it did nothing to make him look presidential.

      I think he looked awkward, as it was obvious he was trying to act like Bill Clinton, and Obama doesn’t do that well. His pauses, hand gestures, shrug of the shoulders….obvious he was trying to channel Clunton’s ‘aw shucks’ appeal for sympathy and a cheap applause from his crowd. Even more obvious when Obama tweeted it out. Of things were going as well as the candy he hands out, he wouldn’t need to go there. But that’s not the case.

    Axelrod: Obama ballot line a ‘mistake’

    Former White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said on Sunday it was
    a mistake for President Barack Obama to say that his policies are on
    the ballot this fall.

    Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Axelrod said that if he were
    still an Obama adviser he would not have included the line in the
    president’s speech last week in which Obama said: “I’m not on the ballot
    this fall … but make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot —
    every single one of them.”

    “It was a mistake,” Axelrod said.

    Same speech that he took the obligatory stab at Fox News knowing he’d get applause from the college kids at Northwestern University.

  • Steve Brains

    I wish The President would have started being politically incorrect during the first SOTU address. Wilson should have been censured by Pelosi’s House and EJECTED.

    If The President would have sued any and every RED propagandist for fraud, defamation and slander/libel… they would have turned turtle and toned the debate down. If he would have charged the freedom Letter signers with Sedition and tried them in court… if the IRS had NOT stopped investigating campaign and tax frauds… if he had just investigated all Bush Era agency heads, politicians, lenders and bankers… America would have gotten on it’s feet in half the time.

  • Kojo

    A letter I just sent privately to Greta Van Sustren:

    Greta, thank you for taking the time to read my message. I have always thought of you as the ‘credible reporter’ on Fox News, a channel I do not subscribe to, but I have to ask you how you could make a statement on your show about ‘why’ the President would make a crack about your network and that his office should be above such statements? You KNOW that the main agenda of your station is to discredit him for each and everything he says and does REGARDLESS of how it effects his office and the country, so long as it serves your viewing public’s political zeal. Do you really expect him NOT to fire back? He should be ‘weak’ and take it on the chin from your cohorts because he is President? Well MY President Barack Obama is NOT weak and will give as good as he gets and then some to unpatriotic organisations such as yours. Please do not make yourselves look foolish by trying to come off like you really care how the POTUS carries himself or how dignified the office is. No one has done more to discredit the office and the nation as a whole than Fox News. I would enjoy a reply.

    • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

      she–and FOX “news” — will claim that your letter never arrived

  • Kojo

    I KNOW someone who used to work at Fox News and he told me it is exactly what you think it is; a bunch of people crowded around a table every morning trying to find everyday possible to make the Democratic Party look bad in the eyes of the nation simply to achieve ratings and for the political goals of the GOP. News is a side note. Integrity is not necessary.

  • Jack N. Off

    Republicans only hear what they want to hear and they always have to have someone to blame. A black guy in a big white house makes a good target.

Hurray, Barry, for sticking it to the network that calls itself a news program, but is far from it!

  • Rainylady

    Have you ever noticed Repub commentators are loud mouths, they talk over each other and are extremely RUDE. Never letting anyone express an opinion, fact check their lies and of course search for the real truth.

  • McRCN

    Obama even mentioning Fox News makes him look small. Liberals control nearly every major network news programming, but they cannot handle that they cannot shut down Fox News. 90% of the country does not watch Fox News, so why not just ignore it if liberal news programming is the end all be all of honest news.
