If you read this blog or follow me on twitter or on facebook, then you know that I am generally NO FAN of president Obama … so it may seem a little strange that I’m actually siding with the same person that I consistently call a moron.
The recent Obama Interviews on Youtube have generated a lot of buzz with the mainstream “conservatives” out there. Of course, most of these “conservatives” are really Republicans using conservative as a buzz-word to broaden their base. In truth, mainstream Republicans and “conservatives” are NOT for smaller government. Sure – they may claim they are for smaller government, but they also support such massive intrusions on our liberties such as The Patriot Act.
con·serv·a·tive /kənˈsərvətiv/: a person who is averse to increases in governmental power, influence, and regulation. This includes especially the federal level, but also the state and local levels.
But I digress – let’s get back to Obama and Youtube.
He certainly is NOT a king.
Conservatives and Republicans have consistently beat the drum that “Obama is not a King!!” Well, then you idiots need to remember your own drumbeat. He certainly is NOT a king. Conducting Youtube interviews with videobloggers is fine. As a matter of fact I respect that.
Conducting Youtube interviews with videobloggers is fine.
Does that mean I agree with the interviews? No. Does that mean I liked all the questions? No. Am I agreeing with Obama? Hell no.
Oh – but they are not “real reporters”. They don’t “fact check” anything. /sigh
Do I need to remind anyone of how effectively silly those arguments are? Sorry – but while “mainstream” journalists may be “educated” and may be “trained”, that certainly does not mean they are flawless and unbiased. Need I mention Dan Rather and the Killian Documents? Ok – what about Fox’s recent stupid comment about No-Go Zones in Paris?
My point is simple. The internet has already drastically changed the way we both distribute and receive information. It is the “great equalizer”. Obama is NOT a king and the POTUS absolutely should spend time “with the commoners.” Get off your hypocritical high-horses Republicans – this is another example of why I only vote Republican because it is the lesser of 2 evils.
Give me common interviews and information all day long. I’m fine with the unfiltered.
