There was an interesting comment made by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show today:
RUSH: I know. In a way I'm conflicted, because you say -- and I know what you mean -- that he's getting away with it. And, yeah, where we are certainly means he's gotten away with it. I have to catch myself sometimes and grab myself before I get too far gone. The magic is gone from Obama now. He does not have the ability any longer to get away with things that he did, certainly in his first term. Now, he's not changing the way he's going about anything, and Obama doesn't think he's in any trouble, but there aren't nearly as many people being bamboozled, fooled, madly in love with Obama.
You know, folks, I read the tech blogs. And there has been a massive falling out with Obama and the high-tech community in Silicon Valley. It's not about any of this. It's not about health care. It's not about their taxes. They're ticked off that their privacy has been corrupted by the NSA. They think Snowden is a hero. They're just livid at Obama. They're writing about it. They can't believe that Obama would do this. They can believe Bush would do it. They can believe Nixon would, but they cannot believe that Obama is collecting their private data and bragging about it. Just little things.
He seems to believe that the media might not protect Obama like they used to because they are all upset for various reasons.
Tech-bloggers are upset over the NSA scandal, regardless of how people here feel about Snowden, it's important that we understand this issue. Tech-bloggers tend to be rather libertarian in nature, and while they generally are apt to vote Democrat, they also don't like the idea that Government is trying to spy on them either.
I think we also have Reporters that are ticked over the AP scandal and the targetting of James Rosen of Fox News, whether they will admit it or not is another matter.
I'm wondering if all these scandals are finally catching up to Obama, anyone else have any thoughts?
No comments about Snowden, please, this is about the scandals and whether or not Obama is still going to get a free pass in the media. Only reason Snowden is even mentioned, is because it was part of the quote.
