'It's Unseemly for Him to Be So Whiny': Obama Blames Fox for D.C. Gridlock
Megyn Kelly took on President Obama's new comments in which he mentioned Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.
In an interview with The New Yorker, Obama laments his inability to win over Republicans and persuade lawmakers to compromise on their opposition to his agenda.
"... the issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think," said Obama, adding that a gap exists between "perceptions of me within the average Republican primary voter and the reality."
Charles Krauthammer weighed in last night on The Kelly File, calling it "rather unseemly" for the most powerful man on Earth to be "so whiny." He noted that so much of the mainstream media "worships at his feet."
"You've got NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN, of course MSNBC. You've got Hollywood that's sympathetic, you've got the television entertainment side. You've got the major newspapers, The Times, The Washington Post. It's what Lenin would call 'the commanding heights of the culture' are all on one side. All of them. And what do you have on the other side? Fox News and talk radio. And you've got a President of the United States complaining that that explains the failures of his administration," said Krauthammer.
