Media praises President Obama’s ‘Liberal Vision’ for second term

For four years the mainstream media avoided the liberal label for President Obama, but after one speech now gloat and brag in their headlines.

  • In Obama’s inaugural speech, a sweeping liberal vision – LA Times
  • Obama outlines unapologetically liberal vision in inaugural speech – Dallas News
  • Obama offers liberal vision: ‘We Must Act’ – NY Times
  • The President liberals were waiting for is (finally) here – Washington Post

    The Truth painting President Barack Obama as Jesus Christ

Many conservatives proudly respect MSNBC for their transparency and portraying themselves as a neutral source of news. Now, as the President enters the safe haven of a second term, the print media now only come out of the closet with a passion for liberal ideals, they also proudly confess that President Obama only offers lip service to compromise on this liberal agenda.

“Couched in rhetoric about the need to come together as a country was a strong — and surprisingly pointed — invocation of a laundry list of progressive principles: gay rights, voting rights, climate change and the inherent value of entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security.” – Washington Post.

Couched in rhetoric?

Yes, audience members, the President will only pretend to work with the House Republicans as he staunchly touts a mandate from the 2012 election.

The Post continues: “This was a speech that could only be given by someone who knew that he would never have to run for re-election again.”

Here the media is confessing that the liberal label must be kept behind closed doors during a campaign. The President and other liberals cannot openly communicate their agenda or risk difficult counter questions, voter backlashes or losses at the polls.

Climate change and gay rights bubbled to the top of priorities for the President in his speech while these we swept to the back burner as the President debated the US economy, bloating debt and financial woes during the campaign.

In fact the President only mentioned the “economy” once and “jobs” twice in his speech.

The transition from freedom and personal responsibility to an assimilation into a collective can be most evident examining the President words even closer:

“our” 79 times, “we” 62 times, “us” 18 times, and “together” seven times. Obama only used the word “I” two times in his 2,096-word speech

So the new message appears to be clear: Ask what the government can do you not what you can do for yourself.
