Right off the bat this morning Obama’s peeps are downplaying the “stimulus” bill.
President Barack Obama’s aides warned Americans on Sunday not to expect instant miracles from the $787 billion economic stimulus bill he will sign this week, but said it would help eventually.
Yeah, that bill that was SO critical it had to be passed without taking time to read will help eventually.
But wait, that’s not all!
Now the Obama administration appears to be waffling about the Fairness Doctrine.
Toward the end of David Axelrod’s interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Chris Wallace jumped into a lightning round of hot-button issues.
There, Wallace asked the top adviser about an issue making the rounds on both conservative and liberal radio shows, where Democratic Congressional leaders (and even Bill Clinton) have recently weighed in.
“Will you rule out reimposing the Fairness Doctrine?” asked Wallace.
“I’m going to leave that issue to Julius Genachowski, our new head of the FCC, to, and the president, to discuss,” Axelrod said. “So I don’t have an answer for you now.”
In June, press secretary Michael Ortiz told Broadcasting & Cable that “Sen. Obama does not support reimposing the Fairness Doctrine on broadcasters.”
That’s clear enough. But since becoming president, it’s been difficult to get such a definitive statement.
Yeah, I’m a paranoid, racist redneck am I?
You people that voted for this guy and believed all he said – I’m demanding apologies from all of you. Start lining up now.
