Comments on: How Obama seized the narrative http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/12/17/how-obama-seized-the-narrative/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: mrpoquah http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/12/17/how-obama-seized-the-narrative/#comment-84211 Mon, 24 Feb 2014 07:25:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=16312#comment-84211 None of this Be explains a few things he has been doing since his first election. One why hasn’t he passed a single budget during his entire time in office? Two why has he done everything in his power to target and destroy parts of our Constitution unless his goal is to destroy our constitution? Such as the signing of the law on 12/26/2013 that makes it a FELONY to protest in any way, punishable by no less than 1 year in prison, if done any where there are secret service agents present. This is one of the rights our FIRST Amendment has guaranteed us in order to let our government know when they are doing something we don’t like or approve of since the Constitution was drafted over 200 years ago. Why was this law signed in secret and why is it still not known about by the majority of the population? Why has Obama targeted the second amendment as his thing to kill during his “last” term in office? Unless it is to destroy the ability of the people of this country to defend themselves from invasion from without, or by attack by our OWN government?

All the ideals spouted at high cocktail parties and organizing events. The painting of moneyed people as villains unless they hold the ideals of the liberal progressives. That we as progressives could make this a better country if you controlled the narrative of our society. Then reality creeps in. Washington corruption on both sides. Failed policies of the liberals in education and the economy, crony politics on the right – and both parties on the take. Each blaming the other. Unions strangling our industries – in many cases, and in the public sector union pensions becoming unsustainable to the point of bankruptcy. NO budget on the federal level and a demonizing of the wealthy. Smidgens of truth – but the narrative has never been Obama’s – it has been the out of touch media – who have constantly ignored the reality of the current policies. The chaos that surrounds this political environment is the disinformation that abounds in an misinformed media. YOu would think they would know better – but unfortunately none work in reality – they just keeping writing narratives. Intellectual incompetents – we see it all through government and now it saturates our media…can someone write about something that is really working and improving our lives – not a social narrative fairy tale.

I see the same guy who won in 08: thoughtful, courteous, letting the battle come to him. A year from now it could turn again. Point is, when both parties are entering a transition era at the same time, the president naturally grows in stature. What’s next is a coherent, relevant case made for the progressive movement, and he’s not there yet. Conservatives will always have the money: what you cannot give them is time.

The feeling of unrest is probably what triggered this whole awful business. They can’t get along in D.C. then they are at least 40 per cant at fault. Do not let anyone try to tell you different.
