This president can cause whiplash … Is that covered by ObamaCare?

Columnist Derek Hunter calls him President “But,” and cites several examples of Obama saying one thing and thing contradicting himself in the same sentence.

“We’re a nation of laws, but…” Hunter quotes the president as saying, quickly followed by, “we are also respecting the fact that we’re a nation of immigrants.”

Hunter reaches the obvious conclusion, “We’re either a nation of laws or we aren’t. And increasingly we aren’t.”

As a senator Obama also demanded that FCC rulemaking be transparent, but he wanted net neutrality be passed without anyone knowing what was in the rules.

He insisted he could not change immigration law, but

Obama refused to meet with the Israeli prime minister lest he be seen as influencing the election there, but former campaign staffers of his are in Israel working to defeat the prime minister.

    I only checked the first quote, and what a whopper it was. Derek Hunter committed journalistic malpractice as presented here. His quote: “We’re a nation of laws, but we are also respecting the fact that we’re a nation of immigrants.”

    The actual quote: “And in the meantime, we’re going to continue to pursue all legal avenues to make sure that we have a country in which we are respecting not only the law, because we’re a nation of laws, but we’re also respecting the fact that we’re a nation of immigrants.” http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/02/25/remarks-president-immigration-town-hall-miami-fl

    Not only did he twist the meaning of Obama’s words, he couldn’t even be troubled by keeping his quote accurate. If a journalist begins a quote in the middle of a sentence, the sentence MUST not begin with a capital letter, but rather three dots signifying that the quote begins in the middle of a sentence. Try to quote a journalist with a brain or sense of ethics next time – preferably both, but I do realize it’s difficult because the journalists of this country are about as honest as the politicians and even more disgusting.

    The hypocrisy of eliminating Brian Williams for his transgression while all of the other vile serpents in our media continue their charade of imaginary honesty is overwhelming.

    Rachel Maddow and Bill O’Reilly are equals in that (dis) respect.
