The Campaigner-in-Chief finally kinda-sorta gets spanked by the mainstream media!

If you get your news from the MSM, what you don't typically get is an objective look at President Obama or his administration!

What you do get is propaganda, campaign "commercials", fluff and filler about the President and his presidency along with a heaping helping of biased reporting on anything or any issue that is anywhere close to the right-of-center.

Since having been elected as the unprepared and untested "change"merchant and "yes we can" man that he was billed and promoted as, President Obama has been on one mission; to collect the prize of a second term in the White House.

Towards that end the Mr. Obama has lined the pockets of his supporters, pandered to his base to the detriment of the good of the country, engaged in the class warfare and divisiveness that he had pledged to help eradicate and has been a one-man wrecking crew of the fiscal stability of the country today and into the future!

In addition to those political endeavors, President Obama has been a tireless campaign warrior traveling far and wide to anywhere in the United States (but mainly focusing on key campaign states) where citizens have checkbooks, credit cards and the inability to objectively process for themselves where the country was pre-Obama and where it is now.

Remember this comparison from a few months ago of the President to the no-show politicians of the EU:

"... Seeing the empty chamber that is supposed to be filled with politicians doing the peoples business, imagine instead that the German is English and what you see is the US Congress or the White House.

It appears that politicians are politicians no matter what language they are speaking.

The only difference is that for President Obama who enjoys his golf, vacations and non-stop campaigning, he doesn't have to sign-in to get paid.

And, he also seems to have little limit on the amount of our money that he can spend in all of these self-serving, self-indulgent and non-leadership pursuits..." (Source)

The political role of the MSM

The infusion of left-wing political fantasy into the minds of the unsuspecting electorate has always been the willing job of the mainstream media. And it is a job that they have tended to do very well and enthusiastically!

Imagine therefore the surprise at some MSM push-back against the White House!

It's not much, but it is hopefully a start to some "fair and balanced" and unbiased reporting that asks some of the tough questions to the Obama White House.

"…President Obama seems to travel to battleground states more so than any other president before him. Am I'm wondering if you could respond to this. It looks like the president is campaigning on the taxpayer dime more than any other president has done," Tapper said at today's White House briefing.

"I reject the premise of that," Carney responded. Carney said since Obama "expanded the political map" by winning some red states, so many more states are considered "purple" or swing-states now. Carney also said that there is "logistical" decision making when the White House plans to travel…” (Source)

“…Between Jan. 1 and Nov. 17 of his third year in office, Bill Clinton held 40 events over 24 days in the battlegrounds of his time, according to data compiled by Brendan Doherty, a U.S. Naval Academy assistant professor who is widely viewed among political scientists as an expert on presidential travel. Over that same stretch, George W. Bush held 49 events in 34 days, drawing complaints from Democrats.

Mr. Obama has surpassed his predecessors in both categories; as of Nov. 17, he attended 54 events in 11 battleground states over 42 days. "Obama has certainly ramped up the volume," said Mr. Doherty, author of a forthcoming book called "The Rise of the President's Permanent Campaign…" (Source)
