    For starters the USA is a “Republic” not a democracy. So what is his solution for the problem of “too much media”? What does he plan to shut down or allow the government to take over next? I can’t imagine it would be the stations and/or reporters who worship him! Looks like “free speech” is in his crosshairs. God help us and God Bless America.

      Cynthia…more power to you! I hear you and agree 110%! We all need to make more noise about this man and his legion of cronies and we need to do it NOW before anymore damage can be done to this country!

      If poor Obama thinks we suffer from an excess of media, it is probably one of the few things I find agreement with his point of view. However, he should look at his own constant use of the media before he blames the media itself. He is a politician whose addiction to the media to freely advertise his thoughts is one of the prime food sources of a hungry media. He can help with this problem by simply shutting his mouth when he has nothing presidential to say. Attacking low level Republican politicians is not only a waste of media time, and therefore a waste of time for his fellow Americans, it is totally unpresidential and makes him look very weak in comparison to those he attacks. Grow up Mr. Prtesident and stop trying to shift blame. Blaming others only diminishes you but it does nothing to solve our problems. George Bush may have been frequently wrong but he appeared to be twice the man you are. Your blame game is getting too old to have a effect. Could you possibly think of doing or saying something productive? If not, please just shut up. We are getting tired of hearing that it was not your fault.

      Cynthia, You have hit the nail on the head! This would be dictator proposes the take-over of the media in all forms, this includes the internet! If your not worried, your living in la-la-land! Coupled with H. Clinton’s end run around the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution by disarming Americans through a U. N. Gun ban ( lead by comrade Obama ). The loss of any freedoms affects ALL AMERICANS including Democrats, ACORN members and non-voters! Experiment; Try kneeling every day for about 8 hours, kneel on a pillow if you like. Just one session should convince you that living on your knees, is not living! If you want to control your destiny you had better get involved in politics and stop the current agenda of DESTRUCTION of AMERICA!! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Cynthia,
      Actually I think we need more media not less. What we DO need less of as far as the media is concerned is BIASED reporting!!! We need the media to report the news as it is, not as they want it to be. In politics, they need to give EQUAL coverage to ALL running not just the main two parties. Then and ONLY then will there be a truly viable third party!!! Too many third party candidates are never even heard of because only a scant few media outlets will let mention of them in their programing!!

  • Tara

    Obama certainly doesn’t mind the media when it is focusing on him in a positive manner or when he was campaigning! What a jerk! How stupid does he think we are, really!? We all have something very much in common when it comes to media…the right and ability to turn it off!! Just because media is available 24 hours a day does not mean you have to listen! The United States of America is supposed to be a country of freedom, media is NOT ruining our country! Ignorant, self-absorbed and lazy people are ruining our country…yeah Obama, that means you and your damn Congress too!! You want to help the people AND this country, get the Hell out of office and take all your cronies with you, especially your Speaker of the House, Pelosi-don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out! What a bunch of UNAMERICAN con-artists! No pride of country, only pride of pocketbook, their own! Oh, by the way…so nice of you to enjoy yet ANOTHER vacation on the taxpayers dollar while millions are unemployed and not able to even feed their families!! Must be Good to be the “KING!”

    Leave it to a lawyer who surrendered his license to utter such a statement. To guess, the puppet masters who control this prez must be tightening their grip. It’s one thing for a citizen to make such a claim. A prez who says a thing like that on his own is relying on absolute, complete stupidity on the part of the American people.
    What we have here, people, is a prez who hates the American people. We have a non-leader who is gradually taking off his masks. The faster he takes off those masks the easier it will be to convince the rest of the nation that a complete fumigation of our political system is the solution.
    This is America. It is not WWII Germany.

    • Carol

      S.C. – you’re absolutely right. A complete fumigation of our entire political system is the answer. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the fumigation will begin on November 2nd, 2010.

  • dan az

    Truth what would he know about it,with the ipod in his pocket that he says he doesnt know how to use?BS!The solutions that he spews is to stop the truth from being spread and nothing more than kill free speech all to protect him and his handlers.what a joke!Does he not know that his ipod has a gps built in?Just stating a fact!

    • SiliconDoc

      The disgusting and interesting fact is that this atheist communist traitor mentions the “ranking” that is “not always very high” on the “truth meter”, indicating full well his familiarity with “the sliding scale”.
      Far be it from the vast majority or all of the Obama minions to simply tell the truth as they best can.
      The diversionary and therefore unscrupulous claim that the media is not delivering a truthful message is another cya act from the deceiver himself, assuming the everyman role for the audience and feeling their pain in trying to sort it all out, if they would just go to the truthful source, Obama, they’ll be fine…
      It’s epic fail when the liar on the podium takes no time to straighten out the most egregious lies he pretends to be fully aware of. That marks it right there for me. All those untruths, and flappy gums doesn’t straighten any out. What a piece of crap.

      • dan az

        Doc
        Thats a fact!

  • jimmy

    a self absorbed egotistical bone head Reid Pelosi these 2 are too. throw the bums on Nov 2… they told Liberace to take his piano & take it back where he came from it almost killed his mother

  • james

    Sounds like a commy to me. I guess a government system similar to N.Korea or China is where he wants our children to find hope for his
    “Collective Salvation” Americans. Utopia is a dream that is unachievable
    by man and much less for a nation. Empty promises is what this poor man/president is selling. Is he sincere…..perhaps but I can’t follow his lead. I know corruption is inevitable,history has proven it over and over again.

    Kids don’t fall for that BS. He is leading you into the absolute worst kind of slavery known to humanity.

    • s c

      James, Herr Obummer is a disciple of Liberation Theology, Black Liberation Theology, Social Engineering and ‘Social Justice.’ He has to rely on two-legged lemmings and empty-headed dolts to get what he wants (and that’s BEFORE you get to owns his posterior).
      America is in deep stuff, and if we don’t get rid of him and his criminal administration as fast we we can, America is history.

  • munday in Texas

    ya know this speach was made quite a while back-how come the media has not taken this up and sounded the alarm? Now whats wrong with that? COME ON AMERICA WE ARE BEING SUCKED DOWN A BLACK HOLE THAT IS REALLY STARTING TO RESEMBLE A HITLER STYLE TAKE OVER!!!

  • intercessor

    By the statements he made in this speach, I think he would be a happier person to live in China. They are a country who welcomes this typw of rule for a government. I would be willing to give him a passport for free! Mr. Obama, please write to us ( if they let you) and tell us how it is. But in the mean time, you leave this country free.
    Love it or leave it
    leave it alone or move out
    we have a great country before you came around and we will have one after your gone too.

  • BrotherPatriot

    More of the same propoganda that got us here to begin with…they have been saying we have a Democracy for about 100 years now. It has dumbed down the majority to the point…that if asked what kind of government America is…many, many, MANY people would answer that indeed, we have a Democracy. Not taking into account that the Pledge of Allegiance they most likely have said to the flag on many mornings specifically says otherwise.

    A Constitutional Republic…thank God & our forefathers for that one…”if you can keep it.”…a famous man is quoted saying. (wink)

    God Bless.

  • Jim H.

    The Founding Fathers made it real clear about the importance of the freedom of the press. Their foresight is valid even today. They recognize the danger of a leader like Obama even back then. No wonder Obama see’s freedom of the press as a threat.

  • Nick D

    Who is he kidding? Is this the same clown that uses the media to his advantage to spew out his socialist rants on more than a daily basis. He’s the most speech-giving president in history. They all sound like campaign speeches – flak but no substance. His use of the media amounts to nothing but head-fakes, saying one thing while in the background, the opposite is in the works.

  • Carol

    So, “the media is ruining our democracy”? He sure is singing a different tune these days. When he was campaining for president, the liberal media treated him like he walked on water. What comes around, goes around.

  • Ed

    He has NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN in his pocket. And he wants to silence
    any voice that disagrees. Reminds of China and the Nobel silence and Russia of past decades.

    Wake up Williams, Couric et al.

    Pray, Folk – for our country.

    • Lewis Munn

      It is so sad that Mr. Obama does not know after all this time that we are a Republic. He would of course not want to admit it, since the Republicans are a major army, and I would bet he hates the Libertarians even more, just shows his disdain by ignoring them!

      I presume his child is in schools that teach the unvarnished truth and avoid media slants?

      It is too bad our children are being forced to learn homosexuality with lab in the schools now, and no other viewpoint, as a political favor, and Obama rails against the media not supporting him in every way everywhere regardless of the truth.

      Getting harder and harder to keep the light of truth and the flame of freedom going. At least my children got good education in that respect, tho it took lots of work and money.

  • Barry

    I wonder if this jerk has an inkling that he is the problem???????
