Post-Partisan Obama Ignores Fox News

From the ‘Top Of The Ticket” at the Los Angeles Times:

Now that Obama’s won, Fox News can’t seem to catch his eye

Back in October then-Sen. Barack Obama granted a then-rare campaign interview. That time, not surprisingly, it went to the N.Y. Times Magazine and the candidate reportedly whined to the writer:

“I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points higher in the polls. If I were watching Fox News, I wouldn’t vote for me, right?

“Because the way I’m portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?”

It’s not unusual for public figures to feel mis-portrayed or even abused by media organizations. John McCain and his people expressed some strong concerns several times about the same Times newspaper.

Now that the campaign is over and Obama is president-elect, his reticence to talk with the media is gone. Now, he’s eager to spread the impression of abundant pre-oath energy and activity.

So, he’s held four news conferences and two sit-down TV interviews since election day, including three news conferences three days in a row this week. He’s broken the news conference record for all recent presidents-elect.

At these news sessions since Nov. 4, the future commander in chief has answered a total of 22 questions from different reporters. Wednesday, it was NPR, the N.Y. Daily News and CNN.

But not once has the election victor called on a representative of Fox News. He just hasn’t seemed to spot them waving their hand for recognition…

Note that the New York Post has also been stiffed by the ‘Great Unifier.’

What a shock, eh?

Because the way I’m portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal.

Mr. Obama does have a point.

He doesn’t drive a Volvo.

    SG; …..”He doesn’t drive a Volvo……”

    To the degree that we are aware. Barely anyone in population is aware that he smokes like a chimney, either.

    On the other hand, we have it on good authority that he’s really a prince of a guy. And I can believe that, too! If, ala WJC, it all depends on how you spell “prince”.

    He’s justifiably afraid that if he fields a question from the ‘Fair and Balanced’ network they might stump him with a toughy. Just like that plumber did….

    BObama may talk to me once he finds out i have ordered my BO victory plate endorsed by the National Historic society with a 65 day firing.

    It has a letter of authenticity with a limit of 2 for 19.95.

    A fine likeness of our Pres elect with fireworks and the saying Change is here.. Hurry while supplies last..

    Perhaps FOX news misplaced there order???

    WAA WAA WAA Just like all the other cry baby liberals. They want us to play but it has to be their game or it’s WAA WAA WAA . I got an email the other day from some group called dividedwefail.org asking now that the election was over we need to all work together. Well, needless to say that got my dander up. Don’t want to get along with libs. Don’t like libs. Don’t want to work with libs and that’s all there is to it.

    Obama left out “Marxist loving”

    In addition to everything else, the fool is thin-skinned

    That just about sums it up Obama. But obviously I would have to add Marxist.

    And to answer your question: nobody with half a brain wants you.

    Boy the truth really pisses the pantie waisted freak off.

    “And to answer your question: nobody with half a brain wants you.”

    He must not have had a lot of options with the ladies either, which would explain him marrying the Sasquatch!

    He seems to know Hannity by name. Maybe the secret code is to hold your LEFT hand up.

    “it all depends on how you spell “prince”.”

    I say it all depends on what you spell “prince.”

  11. U NO HOO says:

    I watch Fox News, and I don’t need to see or hear BO.

  12. U NO HOO says:

    Oh yeah, bon voyage Alan Colmes.

    Please, Please go off script……the ego is going to get to Obama, he’ll start thinking he really can walk on water, and then it won’t matter if he talks to Fox News or anyone else, he’ll be toast with the media.

    If not that, then have Fox talk to ‘Gorgeous-n-Gracious’ Michelle, that will spin some heads.

    Doesn’t Barry look cute behind that “Office of the Presidient Elect” podium? I hear he made it himself—like he used to as a child playing in the back yard. That’s so cute!

  15. BillK says:

    Awww, did poor widdle Pwesident-elect get his feelings hurt?

    Actually, not having any Obama would be a big reason for me to watch Fox News for the next eight years.

    Note of course that this is the type of thing Palin was dragged through the muck for, but naturally it’s OK if the Messiah decides he doesn’t like Fox News.
