BO is pretty sure if you can't handle CNBC you can't handle Putin.
“They say, when I talk to Putin, he’s going to straighten out … and then it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators,” Obama said.BO certainly ought to know -- while the Republicans went ON CNBC and pretty much won the argument in obviously hostile territory, the Dems slunk away from even showing up on Fox in 2007!
So, we have solid evidence that if you don't even bother to show up on Fox, you CERTAINLY can't handle Putin -- which BO has proven complete. BO is making a conjecture that if you show up and respond solidly to media that is not supportive of your position, you will turn out to be just as ineffective as he has been.
Maybe ... but his predictions on a whole bunch of things -- the economy, fuel prices, "red lines", ISIS being the JV team, Russia being any threat, keeping your health insurance, etc, etc have been completely off base.
If there actually was a solid reasonable media, statements like this from a lame duck president with an insanely bad record would be hammered on everything from the actual news to late night television -- as such idiocy and non-presidential partisan sniping ought to be!
Reagan was the "Teflon President" with a rapidly expanding economy, US stature around the world rising, and the USSR running for cover, while the media complained they couldn't take him down like they wanted.
BO is "The Slime President" -- nothing sticks to him in the face of global and domestic disaster while he goes on disingenuously sliming his opposition while the complicit media gives him aid and comfort!
