CBS Giving Barack Obama Cover?

Lincoln?

In an interview for 60 Minutes, Barack Obama compared his administration favorably with other administrations, stating that they had done more than any but Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, and Lyndon Johnson.  CBS had posted that video on their site, but it’s now being reported that this snippet will not be included in the airing of the show.  One must begin to wonder how far the media will go in giving cover to this President, but I think it’s more important to consider the mindset behind the statement itself, and what sort of wretched narcissist believes the accomplishments of the Obama administration are on par with our country’s greatest presidents, most of whom he excluded from his list.  It also tells us a bit about what he thinks makes a president great, and from that point of view, this video may be more troubling. Below is the clip:

So, just in terms of modern history?  Including Reagan? And Lincoln  is “modern history”?  It’s no secret to my readers that I believe Barack Obama may be the most disturbed man to occupy the White House in history, including Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and Richard Nixon, and those are saying a bit, with their sexual aggression, antisemitism, and enemies lists, respectively.  This president is an absurd figure, and any President who wishes to place himself in the company of Ronald Reagan will have to do better than Obama has done.

This historical obsession of his is telling, but what you learn about most is the sort of president with whom his feeble mind permits himself to be compared.  All of them grew the power of the federal government to an outrageous extent, and while some will excuse Lincoln, or even FDR, for the wars in which they engaged, still others recognize that both men presided over substantial growth of government, and there are those who would argue these three in particular would be among the worst of our past presidents.  LBJ was put out to pasture in large part for the war into which he took the nation.  One wonders why Obama chose these three, and in looking for that common thread, all I can see that Obama has in common with them is a notion that is best described by his view of himself as an emancipator and provider for “the underprivileged.”

I believe this is the linkage in Obama’s mind, although I’ve had it suggested to me by a cynic that there’s an even more sinister reason for Obama’s consideration of those three presidents: LBJ sent Americans to die in what many considered a useless war; FDR imprisoned American citizens in camps; Abe Lincoln made open war upon Americans and burned the South to the ground.  As angry as Obama seems to be with America at times, I suppose it’s not surprising that somebody would draw that conclusion.

Barack Obama’s claims aside, I can’t imagine how CBS will edit out this portion of the interview and not reveal how thoroughly they are all-in for Obama.  Maybe they don’t care?  Increasingly, I’m finding that media outlets make not even the pretense of objectivity in their reporting.  After all, this is the same news outfit that gave us Dan Rather and the phony letter about George W. Bush.  It’s not really surprising that CBS would be openly aiding Obama, in light of that disgusting bit of fraud.

At this point, I think most Americans would be satisfied if Obama were able to do only so well as Herbert Hoover.  Whatever you think of his claims, it certainly is disturbing to see a president continually compare his administration to those of the past.  It makes one wonder what his priorities are, if all he seems to think about is how history will report on him.  Left to the appraisals of today’s mainstream media, I’m certain it will be a glowing report.

  1. This ego maniac is taking our United States down the sewer with his Marxist, NWO rhetoric and Socialistic government. We can only surmise how many rights. freedoms he still intends to take away. Perhaps, since he has compared himself to Lincoln so many times, he also might initiate a war, but not against the south, but agains free Americans. Against all with his government, career politicians, legislative czars and Homeland Security, National Guard, finally the military. Perhaps Alex Jones is not so far off… It seems conspiracy theories are really not so rediculous. All we need is one crisis and I am afraid the end is just around the corner. Then, he will be the hero of the New World Order, Muslim Extremists, Socialists and Communists. He, President Obama, fundamentally changed the United States.

    We already know his priorities, but, it seems we will see his agenda.

    What did Moochelle Obama say about having to change our traditions and our history? Well, I'm not surprised. Obama has taken the worst things from some of the worst presidents in our history and is now holding them up as great! Sounds like re-writing history to me. No surprise either that the media is supporting this subversion. They have been infiltrated by communists and socialists for some time now. That is why I say that it matters not what GOP candidate is put forth as the nominee. The media will attempt to destroy them in order to promote their socialist idol. They don't understand that they will be the first ones killed off if he succeeds.
    Beck was saying a few days ago on his radio program that he thinks Obama will win a second term. Obama is acting unconcerned about his chances, which means he and his team are either stupid or the fix is in. That is why we must watch Obama like a hawk to ensure he does not get away with whatever it is he has planned. I wouldn't put anything past someone this delusional.

    Just watched the video clip… Sorry I just had to hold myself back from puking all over my computer, and take some blood pressure medication before I have a stroke.

    Honestly, I don't know how you guys can make it through any of his speeches without puking or having blood squirt from your eyes.
