Obama On Why Democrats Failed: See, It's Because FOXNEWS! Is On the TV In "Every Bar and Restaurant"
— Ace

Really. Because the only news channel I ever see in any public venue is CNN.

In an interview with decrepit hippie Jann Wenner, the guy who blames every defeat on the media (Fox in particular) and "messaging" blames the newest defeat on, get this, the media (Fox in particular) and "messaging:"

The challenge is people are getting a hundred different visions of the world from a hundred different outlets or a thousand different outlets, and that is ramping up divisions. It's making people exaggerate or say what’s most controversial or peddling in the most vicious of insults or lies, because that attracts eyeballs.

...

In this election, [white working class voters] turned out in huge numbers for Trump. And I think that part of it has to do with our inability, our failure, to reach those voters effectively. Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country, but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments. That part of the critique of the Democratic Party is accurate. We spend a lot of time focused on international policy and national policy and less time being on the ground. And when we're on the ground, we do well.

The guy who only interrupts his Golfing Administration to do public rallies and bathe in the electricity of cultish adoration claims, once again, that he's too busy doin' hard policy stuff to really engage "on the ground."

Of course, that's also another backhanded slap at Hillary -- he ripped her for not being on the ground enough during the campaign.

I saw two points made about Obama's claims on Twitter: Michelle Malkin noted that Obama and Hillary had ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, 95% of print newspapers, Hollywood movies, most network TV shows, PBS, the academy, most professional organizations, etc., all flacking for them. But a single dissenting tone in the chorus, like Melchion's discordant song in the Simarillion, apparently injected Evil into the otherwise untainted world.

RedSteeze said he'd like the media to ask Obama which bars and restaurants he's been to that had FoxNews on.

That's a good question. As I said above, I've never personally seen FoxNews on in any public venue. It's too "controversial." It would be like, as in that episode of Seinfeld, having Penthouse magazines on the side-tables in a dentist's waiting area.

Oh, and do enjoy this article about the media's unhinged foot-stomping over Trump's win, which shows little sign of abating.

10 So, one lone outlet in the vast media/entertainment complex occasionally gave voice to mild criticism of Obama, which was always accompanied by a vigorous denial and that made him fail. Good to know, twink, that you really were that big a lightweight.

27 That's a good question. As I said above, I've never personally seen FoxNews on in any public venue. From time to time I've seen one monitor at the gym tuned into Fox. But it's the one in the weight room, where really nobody is watching TV. The one in the cardio room with ellipticals, etc. is CNN all the time. There's a Burger King nearby that always has Fox on; it's in a precinct that has gone GOP last three general elections.

I bet he lined up all these interviews in expectation of being all magnanimous about handing off to Hills, waxing poetic about all the transformational change he started...and instead he's whining about the few people who said mean things about him in public.

44 Someone needs to point out to these fools that if it's a public venue such as a sport bar, they're showing, gasp, sports. Airports? CNN My local doctor has, I believe, Fox and one of the other networks. Good grief. This is why people like this should not be let anywhere near the levers of government. They're never responsible for anything that goes wrong, that it's "always the fault of someone else." It's never their stupid policy that people told them was stupid yet they stupidly went ahead with their stupid policy because they're smarter than anyone else.

57 You know we've all been wondering why Obama seems so magnanimous and decent about Trump taking office. I think its partly "I'm still head of the party, bitchez" but what if a lot of it is... they only had one narrative worked up and are so in shock and unprepared that's all he has to run out there. We know how stammering and hapless he is without the teleprompter, how everything he does publicly is a very carefully practiced and memorized persona. What if he's like a stuck record, this is all he has ready? It was supposed to be trotted out for Hillary and its all he's got?

It's that they weren't effective enough in lying and spreading their propaganda.

They spend their time in liberal enclaves, focused on how they should rule those that are "on the ground" rather than actually being "on the ground". *"on the ground" being a euphemism for "normal, every day effing American citizen"

106 They still believe that the problem is that they didn't 'message effectively." That the didn't 'make arguments" at the ground level. Their worldview will not admit that they are wrong. We've had the message crammed down our throats for eight years and we puked it all over Hillary's presidential campaign. The most effective message is a good economy. The best argument is properity, safety and the government leaving us alone.

146 That's a good question. As I said above, I've never personally seen FoxNews on in any public venue. It's too "controversial." Depends on what part of the country you're in. Here in rural TX, if the news is on at all, it's usually FNC. There's a local breakfast place here that I kind of like, but I rarely eat there because they have FNC on the TVs. With the volume BLASTING. It's distracting.

167 From late in the Schadenboner thread: 672 The Saga Continues: Trump Tower, New York City. Barricades surround the building as the president elect interviews applicants for positions and takes the please of supplicants. The latter arrive as workers finish the large flaming Golden Scalp Weasel on the tower's roof. "We have answered your summons, president elect Trump." "You have thrown everything against me during this campaign," he responds, "but I want to meet with you to show that I am magnum...er, magniloq...er...munici...hey, no hard feelings." "Thank you," Megyn says with ill-grace. "Don't take it so hard, sweet cheeks. I want to offer you a place." "What? In a harem?" Megyn says, shocked. "I'm a serious professional journalist!" Mika shouts. "You're a professional alright and you wear your credentials on your chest. But enough of the Tom-foolery, I'm not here for mish. I have another proposition." "And that is?" Megyn asks, glancing over at Mika and adjusting her top. "Throughout the campaign you shilled for Hillary. It was so obvious even the cretins in the British tabloids were laughing at you. It can be worth your while to do the same." "Why shill for Hillary," Mika asks, clerly puzzled. "She's done, she's taking a walk in the woods..." "Being sent to the farm for old dogs..." Megyn adds. "Going fishing with Fredo..." Mika quips, glaring at Megyn. "Pushing up daisies..." Megyn snarls as she faces Mika. "GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!" the pair growl as they stand with clenched teeth, nose to nose. "Down Sheba, down Lassie! You'll spook the Golden Scalp Weasel. Man, you dames are nuts and I know dames." The pair slowly back off with smiles as fake as a Dollar Shop gold ring. "Kisses, Megyn." "Love you, Mika." Trump shudders. "No, I want you to act like you're still skeptical about me, but secretly support me. Do things like how unsure you are about my actions and then spin the results as 'Darn, he really pulled off something there' as if you are amazed." "Why?" "You'll keep your audience of Lefties who want red meat about how stupid I am and then you'll suck in the Righties who go "Ha-ha! He really put one over on the press!" That way I win and you win - I get to look good and you get super ratings and big contract bonuses. Deal?" Mika and Megyn give grudging glances at each other before leaping forward. "You bet," Megyn says. "Nobody sucks up like I do!" "No one out lick-spittles me, Little Miss Round-Heels," Mika says. "Ladies, you agree. Take the rest to the girl's washroom and handle it old school." The Golden Scalp Weasel sighs in relief as the blondes, honing their nails, leave.

And I'll spend time in my first year out of office writing a book, and I'm gonna be organizing my presidential center, which is gonna be focused on precisely this issue of how do we train and empower the next generation of leadership. How do we rethink our storytelling, the messaging and the use of technology and digital media, so that we can make a persuasive case across the country?...

So...more of the same.
Sleeping in, vacationing, talking endlessly about the process - storytelling, messaging, technology - as opposed to ideas and policy.

180 In this election, [white working class voters] turned out in huge numbers for Trump. And I think that part of it has to do with our inability, our failure, to reach those voters effectively. I guess when you've never had a real job it's just too hard to imagine blue collar folks might be smart enough to realize importing a million south and central American peasants every year might have some impact on their financial prospects. No, it's just that they "didn't get our message" or "we couldn't reach them effectively". I'll be so glad when this moron has to give up the keys to 1600.

As opposed to one vision of the world from four "different" outlets which was really essentially just the NYTimes. Notice, once again, it wasn't policy or ideology that was rejected; it was "messaging". Always with the messaging. It's almost as if they have communist DNA.

193 Obama's basic complaint - that the left does not control the media 100% - is accurate. It's the same thing with the "fake news" meme. They are distressed and dismayed that they can't control the narrative; even if they get 95% of the outlets, that doesn't give them 95% of the people. At least half the country still ventures forth from the echo chamber and gets the dissenting view.

He pauses, picks up a magazine from the table and opens it to the centerfold. I think it was supposed to be Playboy instead of Penthouse. Well, you know, the 70's." There was an episode of The Partridge Family where Danny and Reuben Kincaid were quarantined together for some reason. At bed time, they showed Danny reading a comic book in his bed and Reuben looking at a girly mag in his bed (and smoking). Like you said, the 70's.

If they're not actively mocking the GOP and conservatives on his behalf they are pushing the latest progressive hubby-horses. You've got orgs like the WH, Planned Parenthood and CAIR that actively meet w/Hollywood executives, tv showrunners asking them to craft a storyline that pushes their agenda - and they are welcomed. * * Which is why Last Man Standing with Tim Allen is such a great change of pace.

297 What I want to know is, was there really a "groundswell" of white working class voters that were "new" to the voting booth, or did minorities simply not show up? My understanding is Trump actually did slightly worse with whites than Romney did. Problem is, the exit polls in 2016 also showed Hillary winning so we know for certain they aren't accurate. Posted by: Maritime at November 30, 2016 04:02 PM (g9iYn) All the above, frankly. Trump did slightly worse with whites overall, but overwhelmingly better with whites without bachelor degrees, and crucially, it was mainly in rust belt states he needed to break the blue wall (and run up margins in West Virginia and upstate new York. African-Americans didn't turn out the way they did for Obama, while Hispanics did, but it didn't have as big an impact as was expected because Trump slightly improved Romney's numbers in both groups. In essence, Hillary couldn't repeat Obama's coalition and turnout. Whether Trump could do it again or his coalition can be transferred to another politician is something we'll have to wait to find out.

This is quite a lament. Obama's deepest desire, of course, is that things return to the way they used to be -- when there were three news outlets who broadcast the same message that democrats wanted the public to hear. Alternative viewpoints are not simply that -- alternatives -- they are "wrongheaded" and "divisive." (Surprised he didn't push it one step further... "unpatriotic." No wonder Lefties like Cuba. So much control over the message and the dissenters.

337 but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments. -ShitMidas- Really? Not making arguments? Nice try there, you liar. 8 years of junior being told how to educate his elders at holiday gatherings, 8 years of being berated for having what 9 years ago was a non-controversial opinion, 8 years of being told to shut up, and you have the gall to say that? Only in the eighth year, we found the weapon of choice, so we shut up or talked amongst ourselves. And voted.

350 It's rich that Obama blames Hillary's loss on FOX and fake news. MSM poured more buckets of blood over Trump's head and for longer than I thought possible. Prominent MSM even admitted they were slanting coverage "for the common good." Because of this, many believe Trump is a clown or worse. If he's effective over the next four years, he'll win over many and win in a landslide in 2020. Many of the converts will be minorities.

Down the bar from the TV there's another screen continuously alternating slides from local history, the Korean conflict, and the great flood of 1965, when the previous Woodshed and every other establishment on the then-lawless Island were swept away down the mighty Mississippi. Nifty place, you should pay a visit sometime. Oh, the county did go for Trump, too.
