Will anyone in legacy media ask Obama about bigger government he didn’t pay for?

Back in August, 2011. when reporting that the national debt has increased by $4 trillion under President Obama, CBS News’s Mark Knoller reported that:

Mr. Obama blames policies inherited from his predecessor’s administration for the soaring debt. He singles out:

  • “two wars we didn’t pay for”
  • “a prescription drug program for seniors…we didn’t pay for.”
  • “tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 that were not paid for.”

Mr. Obama has now been reelected to a second term. The debt continues to increase.

At the outset of Mr. Obama’s term, shortly after passing the $800 billion stimulus, the¬†Democratic 109th Congress passed a budget spending $400 billion more in FY2009 that Mr. Obama’s predecessor had requested in his last budget. ¬†Will any reporter ask Mr. Obama about these spending increases he — and his party — didn’t pay for?

Just asking.

  2. The simple answer is “no” because no reporter is going to question Obama seriously over anything.

    I am willing to bet come 2016 the democratic candidate for president with an assist by Obama will insist that the record deficits and record debt are all Bush’s fault and the media will happily help them.

  3. Asking when the MFM is going to get tough on Obama is like asking when the cheerleading squad is going to get tough on the quarterback.

  6. Why do you bother blogging about this when you already know the answer?
