    Agree. Anyone who blames the media is a weenie and a wuss.

    From the article..

    "Actually, the “caricature” of Obama conservatives share, whether they’re in broadcast or at the local bar, is that the president is a narcissistic neophyte who — when he isn’t trying to force changes that are abhorrent to sensible people in this country abhor — is in way over his head"

    Pretty accurate assessment IMO..

    Yes, anyone that blames the media for their own actions is "weenie" and a "wuss." Correct.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States; Unpopular due to a television channel and a radio personality.

    He wasn't actually blaming them, or anyone.

    He didn't say they stopped his message, he alluded to that they paint a caricature of him. And they do. It is to some degree the nature of the biz. Left did it to W, right did it to Clinton, left to GHWB and Reagan, etc...There's a lot of mythmaking that goes on about presidents, and the opposition is often more energized to create negative myths.

    Yes, on some levels, I absolutely agree, bill. Been known to say it on occasion (and of course it's a staple of political thinking). And there is some truth to it but not because the perception is "right" but because perceptions can drive actions. Think, "If a man define situations as real, they are real in their consequences"

    I live in the heart of liberal land USA (Princeton/Trenton) and NOT one of my many friends who voted for Obama the first time mentions his name anymore. Politically speaking, he's become like O.J. - in his own world.

    At this point they are likely working on their apology speeches that they will be required to give to their children when they inherit the mess this dangerous amateur they elected made of our country and their finances..

    This is about Obama's excuses, not about his lack of support by the news media. The media that mostly tilts to the left.
