Cry Me a River

My, we're getting pouty, aren't we?
Obama blamed troubles on Fox News, book says 
President Barack Obama blamed Fox News for his political woes in a private meeting with labor leaders in 2010, saying he was “losing white males” who tune into the cable outlet and “hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7,” according to journalist David Corn’s new book, “Showdown.” 
In “Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party” — which hits bookstores on Tuesday — the Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones chronicles the White House from the 2010 midterm elections to the start of the 2012 campaign. The book focuses on key moments of Obama’s presidency, such as Osama bin Laden’s assassination, the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the Arab Spring, the debt ceiling crisis, and the president’s dealings with Congress.
Corn writes that after the midterm elections, Obama told labor leaders in December 2010 that he held Fox partly responsible for him “losing white males.”
Incredible.  I watch Fox News quite a lot and have never heard this "Obama is a Muslim 24/7".  In fact, Fox is a hell of a lot fairer to Obama than the networks have ever been to any Republican President.

The President and his apologists are apparently so out of touch, and so absolutely convinced of their righteousness that they've determined that fabrication is not the least bit dishonorable.  Either that or the paranoia is playing tricks in their heads.
