Obama blames Media for His Administration's firing of Shirley Sherrod
Barry says it's the MEDIA'S fault that Shirley Sherrod got fired! No! Really! It's the media's fault, not his Administration's!
"Honest, Dad, I wouldn't have drunk that beer if you hadn't left it in the refrigerator!"
"He jumped the gun," Obama said of Vilsack, "partly because we now live in this media culture where something goes up on YouTube or a blog [emphasis mine] and everybody scrambles."
Obama said that he told his team and agencies to be focused on doing the right thing instead of what's politically necessary like, you know, right away.
"If there's a lesson to be drawn from this episode," the President continued, it's to avoid "jumping to conclusions and pointing fingers at each other." [emphasis mine]
I guess Barry thinks us small people missed the obvious hypocrisy in his statement. Either that or it's "Do as I say, not as I do!"
Of course, another alternative is he really meant it's ok for blaming others (the dirty media, blogs, etc) but HIS Administration can't blame each other!
His statement is as asinine as any proffered by any of the room temperature I.Q.s on the right and he expects us "kiddies" to fall in line much as Bush/Cheney and the Republicans expected?
Centrist my ass! It appears he and his "Administration" only listen to the Goebbels News Network regardless of the "tirade" he launched against Fox a while back! Maybe that was just for show? And he believes, and now acts, upon their every thought and criticism?
C'mon Opologists, defend him.
Nope! Don't see no WMDs under here!
Tell me again, what year is this...2003?
