Obama’s Media Protection

obama mediaFor almost four years now Barack Obama has lived under the protection of the media.  They have shielded him, propped him up, deflected blame for him, lied for him and given him a free pass on everything he has done and everything he has not done.

The millions he and Michelle have spent on lavish vacations at taxpayer expense.  The unemployment numbers. Oil, natural gas and coal production. Energy independence. Taxes. Immigration. Obama has failed in all these areas and more, without one word of criticism from the media.  His signature accomplishment, Obamacare, was passed without a single Republican vote and was lauded by the media as a wonderful accomplishment when even Nancy Pelosi said we won’t know what’s in it until it’s passed.  Had the media done their jobs and reported the truth about the bill, Congress would not have dared pass Obamacare for fear of being tarred and feathered when they returned home to their constituents.  Some almost were in spite of the media.

When running for president Obama promised he would have the most transparent administration in history.  Instead, the Fast and Furious cover up and now the Benghazi cover up have been scandals that ordinarily would destroy a presidency and send the incumbent packing after the next election.  But, the media has ignored Fast and Furious.  And the media went along with the administration’s spin, blaming a video for the events in Benghazi.  Willing accomplices, every step of the way.

And now, at the end of his first and, hopefully, only term, Obama is having to step out from behind the wall of media protection and be face to face with the opposition on the debate stage.  Even the blatant bias of the moderators has not been able to protect him from the awful truth, which is that the country is in far worse shape now than when he took office.  All his lies, all the interruptions from the moderators, all the lies told by moderators when ‘correcting’ Romney, all the liberal spin from the media after the debates…  All have failed to hide the fact that Obama’s presidency has been a failure.

In spite of the media, from the polling numbers it appears the majority of voters know the truth. At this time it appears that Mitt Romney will be elected president next month.  What I wonder is how much of a landslide would it be if the media did their jobs with no bias and reported the absolute truth about Obama, his failures, his lies and his plans.  But, if they did that, he would never have been elected in the first place.
