Default Helen Thomas: Not Even Nixon Tried to Control the Media Like Obama

Wow!

It must be bad when SHE is the one attacking His Holiness!



(CNSNews.com) - Following a testy exchange during today’s briefing with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas told CNSNews.com that not even Richard Nixon tried to control the press the way President Obama is trying to control the press.

“Nixon didn’t try to do that,” Thomas said. “They couldn’t control (the media). They didn’t try.

“What the hell do they think we are, puppets?” Thomas said. “They’re supposed to stay out of our business. They are our public servants. We pay them.”

That sound that you hear is the wheels coming off the Obama Train.

He's already losing his suburban backers in droves and it's only going to get worse when people start waking up to what he and his acolytes are trying to do with Cap and Tax (Trade).

Obama's much uglier.

Note that I said butbutbut,

I've seen ad hominem attacks about her looks for years, and those attacks came from conservatives on other message boards. Funny how suddenly what she says has merit.

What's she's said has always had merit, even if people didn't want to hear it. In this case, she's one of the few voices of experience that can tell people what's really going on in an historical context.

Of course the liberals will continue to spin this to make it look like Obama somehow embodies all that the Founding Fathers intended for America.

Hmmm, perhaps the media shouldn't allow themselves to be controlled?

Actually, I find it quite arrogant what she said, as if she has a special place in American society. Her "special place" derives its freedom from the exact same amendment that my freedom OF religion derives its place. Her job and responsibility is of no more or less importance constitutionally.

I just think it is funny to hear her complain.
