In a recent writing of mine, I claim mainstream media bias had lots to do with the re-election of Obama. Most polls showed Americans were not in support of Obama’s agendas on growing the economy, creating jobs, spending, etc., nor even in support of Obamacare. MSM, however, didn’t hold him accountable for his failures.
That being said, there were other major factors that gave Obama another term. Call them Obama scandals. As I point out the scandals, I ask readers to think about how much coverage they witnessed by mainstream media. Not a whole lot, from what I could see.
In order to get re-elected, Obama lied over 20 times that, with his signature Obamacare law, you could keep your doctor, your same insurance, and premiums would be $2,500 less. Since most voters liked their doctor and insurance and were OK with premiums before the law, Obama knew full well he couldn’t get re-elected unless he lied. The lies still keep coming.
How many Romney voters didn’t vote or speak out with threats coming from the IRS? IRS targeting of Obama’s conservative opponents will go down as the most corrupt ballot box interference by government in American history. Now we’re finding out there was IRS collusion with DOJ, other government agencies and even some Dems in Congress.
The Census Bureau, which is supposed to be non-partisan, doctored unemployment numbers to make Obama look good. Yup, the CB even admitted that they lied about getting it below 8 percent since no president won re-election with people out of work at that number or above. No wonder Obama moved the CB to the White House way back in ’08.
Obama and Hillary lied about how four Americans were killed in Benghazi because al-Qaeda was supposed to be on the run and it wouldn’t look good for Obama’s re-election if terrorists were still up and running after Osama bin Laden’s demise. If readers don’t know what the big lie was, it proves my point. MSM still won’t go there with ongoing investigations.
Add to all of the above, there was voter fraud. There are cases to prove it.
Recent reports showed some 35,000 in North Carolina alone voting in two different states — and Dems fighting voter ID is nothing more than a ploy for illegals to vote since Hispanics vote overwhelming (8 to 2) for Dems.
I would be remiss not to add Obama’s smear campaign of Republicans being racist, sexist, homophobes, bigots and not for the poor. The scandalous mud-slinging worked to divert attention away from the real issues of the day.
What do all these scandals have in common? Far too many voters were uninformed since Obama’s media refused to investigate and report. Not only were there lies all over the place, there’s stonewalling taking place of current investigations, thus preventing Congress and we the people from knowing the truth. Nor does media even care.
Another huge story – Obama bought a lot of votes with your tax money and mine giving handouts to millions on welfare. People getting tax money from Obama’s government was a huge voting block in his 2012 re-election.
Ponder this little stat: Liberal mainstream TV media to date has had 99 interviews with Obama while conservative TV got only eight interviews. That’s 99 interviews holding our president accountable for nothing.
Snoopy of “Peanuts” could get elected considering all of the above. If ever in this country’s history there’s a “re-election” that should not have been, this is it!
