Obama’s Version of “With Us or Against Us”

Today, Barack Obama did the unthinkable: he sat down with a Fox News anchor, Brett Baier. Click here and you can see the first part of the video.

I love this…he starts off by saying, “What I can tell you is that the vote that’s taken in the House will be a vote for health care reform. And if people vote yes, whatever form that takes, that is going to be a vote for health care reform. And I don’t think we should pretend otherwise. And if they don’t, if they vote against it, then they’re going to be voting against health care reform and they’re going to be voting in favor of the status quo.”

In other words? You’re either with us or against us. Isn’t that one of those Bush phrases that Democrats got so hot under the collar about after 9/11 when we went to Afghanistan to kick out the Taliban and then to Iraq to depose Saddam?

Oh, and I love this…Obama and his handlers (i.e. Gibbs and Axelrod) are forever accusing Fox of not being a real news agency. They’re always saying that Fox is biased, they have an agenda, and they only report facts based on that agenda. What do they have to say now that dear leader is on the record beating around the bush and refusing to answer Baier’s straightforward questions about the issues in the healthcare bill?

I forgot. They don’t have to say anything about it, and Obama won’t ever be held to account for it. Why? Because the MSM isn’t biased, Fox is. That’ll be their singular excuse. It’ll be all they have to say. Fox isn’t news.

When all else fails, blame Fox.

  1. “And if they don’t, if they vote against it, then they’re going to be voting against health care reform and they’re going to be voting in favor of the status quo.”

    A status quo the liberals lovingly embrace I might add. Can’t afford to pay? No problem. Just show up and stick your debt on someone else.

    How about if you can’t pay then stay home and let nature run its course?

  2. You can’t argue, Robert, because I’m right. I have years of liberals both privately and publicly lambasting Bush for saying after 9/11, “you’re either with us, or you’re against us.”

    Now we have Obama saying the exact same thing. He’s just applying it to something liberals feel emotionally tied to and wording it differently. It’s not okay for Bush to say it because to you, he’s a warmonger. It’s perfectly okay, however, for your guy to say it about something YOU are passionate about.

  3. “Citing sources is the exact opposite of laziness. Citing sources is professional.”

    That has nothing to do with why this is lazy blogging. I think a more interesting part of this story is how much of an asshole Bret Baier is by continually interrupting the President when he’s trying to answer this douche’s questions. I have no doubt in my mind that Baier was sent in there to do just that, interrupt the President repeatedly to attempt to make him look flustered and angry, so they could play it on an endless loop. Look at Baier’s body language, the guy was clearly on a mission. And some people are still dumb enough to get upset when people rightfully state that FOX is not real news…

  4. “Now we have Obama saying the exact same thing”

    That’s not even in the same ball park, Mel. First, Obama never uttered the phrase, and second, Bush said “you’re either with us, or you’re with the terrorists”. Tell me exactly what Obama said to turn you into a terrorist, because that total son of a bitch Bush made me out to be a terrorist for not supporting his phony crusade based on his lies. Give me something comparable and we can talk.

  5. “I think a more interesting part of this story is how much of an asshole Bret Baier is by continually interrupting the President when he’s trying to answer this douche’s questions.”

    Oh, but it’s okay for other MSM anchors (say, the ones on MSNBC) to do that?

    “Look at Baier’s body language, the guy was clearly on a mission.”

    Just like MSM reporters who practically screamed like Beatles fans when Obama looked at them on the plane while on the campaign trail. They might as well have been tossing their underwear at him (I kept waiting for Chris “Thrill Up My Leg” Matthews to do it).

    “And some people are still dumb enough to get upset when people rightfully state that FOX is not real news…”

    At least Fox was as tough on Bush as they’re being on Obama.

    “Give me something comparable and we can talk.”

    I did. You apparently missed it. Or you chose to ignore it.

  6. Nice job Mel.

    Where did the Obots come from? Don’t pay attention to them. Their words mean nothing.

  7. “Oh, but it’s okay for other MSM anchors (say, the ones on MSNBC) to do that?”

    Several things:

    1) When did I ever say it was okay for a supposed journalist to treat the President that way, regardless of who is President?

    2) When has anyone from MSNBC ever interrupted any President when he was trying to answer questions?

    3) MSNBC is not mainstream media

    And finally,

    4) Chris Hanson shows more respect to fucking pedophiles he busts on “To Catch a Predator” than this prick did for the President of the United States.

    “At least Fox was as tough on Bush as they’re being on Obama.”

    Oh, that’s darling. Ah, the things we wish we could take back:
