Obamas Media Keeps Protecting Him
It’s no secret that the majority of the media in this country support President Obama and worked very hard to get him elected back in 2008. Well, they are back in re-election mode for him. President Obama has time and time again inserted foot into mouth only to get a free pass from the Lame Stream Media that protects him. His 57 states with one more to go, ignored, his Corpse Guard statement, ignored, the fact he talked to a dead soldier, ignored, he does not know the age of his children, and now this foot in mouth moment yesterday.
When President Bush made the same mistake during his campaign for President in 2000, he was roundly criticized as unintelligent. But President Obama again gets a free pass from his media counterparts.
“We do have to make sure that there are computers in a computer age inside classrooms and that they work and that there’s internets that are actually — there are Internet connections that actually function. And I think that those states that are going to do well and those countries that do well are the ones that are going to continue to be committed to making education a priority.”
But surprisingly that is not the only statement from this man that he recently has made that is being ignored.
By the way, people who work in the White House, they’ve had their pay frozen since I came in, our high-wage folks. So, they haven’t had a raise in two and a half years, and that’s appropriate because a lot of ordinary folks out there haven’t either. In fact, they’ve had their pay cut in some cases.”
But yet the White House released its annual salary report last week, and most staffers who were there for more than a year got a salary bump. An astonishing 75% of staffers who were there for more than a year got raises from 2009 to 2010. From 2010 to 2011 it was a little less dramatic. Of the 270 White House staffers who have been there for more than a year, 146—or 54%—received raises. The average salary increase was 8%. The average American workers increase was around 3%.
But hey, it’s ok if he says one thing and the reality is something completely opposite, he is the CHOSEN ONE and is allowed to get away with it.
