Obama speaks in 100th day prime time press conference tomorrow night!

Fox New refuses to televise, in what I believe will only hurt the Republican party even more!

President Obama is scheduled to speak in yet another prime time news conference tomorrow night, which marks the president's first 100 days in office. Obama is expected to outline exactly what he has done through the first 100 days, which include the signing of the Economy Recovery and Investment Act of 2009, the G-20 Summit in London aimed to pull the world out of this recession, and his visits overseas to American troops in Iraq as well as his controversial handshake with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Let me get this straight for you people. Obama didn't invite Chavez over to the White House for dinner. He didn't play golf with Chavez. He didn't have drinks with Chavez, or allow Chavez to babysit the kids while he and Michelle went out for a hot night on the town. No! He shook his hand and accepted a book from him. That's it. No need to blow shit out of proportion. Keep your friends close, but your enemies even closer. What you might call the acceptance of an enemy's book a weakness, I call smart thinking as well as a reserved eagerness to learn more about the enemy!

"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle."-Sun Tzu [L.G.]

What amuses me is that Fox News, largely dominated by right wing conservative broadcasting, refuses to cover the news conference. Even though conservative extremists like Sean Hannity do not agree (do not agree is a vast understatement) with the judgments and decisions of President Obama, the network's job is to broadcast the news whether or not they agree or disagree with the content. Choosing not to cover the President's press conference can not possibly help a desperate Republican party that clearly lost ground after their candidate's poorly contested race for the presidency last fall as well as the outcome of the election. Furthermore, Fox's stubbornness in this matter can be construed as a poor strategy to sway independent and undecided voters in the Republican party's favor when November of 2012 rolls around.

Television news channels, such as CNN and MSNBC will be showing Obama's prime time press event live on their respective networks. CNN takes a more liberal approach with their news coverage, while MSNBC remains a bit more politically balanced. The more live, prime-time coverage President Obama gets on those networks, the more empowered he will become as we delve deeper and deeper into his presidency. Since Fox News won't be showing the press conference, the entire country will be watching it on those two networks. A politician's reputation will usually shine brighter to the average independent voter when his speeches are cast through a positive bright light rather than a negative dark light or not at all. Keep in mind that President Obama currently has an approval rating of about 63% right now (highest approval rating at the 100 day mark for a United States President in 20 years!), which is only a single percentage point below that of what he had after the first couple weeks.

You would think if these right wings are eager to get this man out of office in 2012, and they firmly believe he's socializing the country and stealing from the piggy banks of these little brats, that their representation would show it to the world wide audience to encourage them who NOT to vote for. If you're Fox News, wouldn't you elect to show your extreme right-wing Sean Hannity wannabes of America additional bull things that Mr. Obama is 'supposedly saying and doing wrong' rather than hiding it by not covering it at all??? Perhaps their bitterness has sapped their energy or cognitive functionality to come up with anything else. It's only been a 100 days you assholes - We still got 3 years and 8 months to go!! The way things are going right now, there's a chance it will be 7 years and 8 months!!!

Get your shit together, Fox News. Of course I never accused those bitter, right wing douche bags of having any common sense. President Obama is The Man. As a proud supporter, I am looking forward to hearing what President Obama has to say tomorrow night.
