You have been manipulated, duped, porked, bamboozled and deceived by Democrats and this President.
Propaganda and manipulation are fundamental components of the Soetoro administration’s plan to deceive what Rush Limbaugh refers to as the “low information voters.” Apparently, it has gotten so extreme that the Politico wrote a four-page article entitled, “Obama, the puppet master.” (see article)
The Politico is not what one would call a conservative news blog, it isn’t. Therefore, it is surprising that they would write anything that is not in strict compliance with protecting the first mixed race Kenyan-African and White president of the United States from honest scrutiny.
Take a look at how Politico’s Jim VanDehel and Mike Allen discuss the way the president’s handlers have wrapped him in Saran wrap while creating a staged presidency where information is manipulated to provide optimal positive coverage and approval of everything that this president says and does. (see 2:13 min video)
The Soetoro presidency is purely stagecraft! It’s political slight-of-hand backed by a media that is not going to let anything harm the guy that they put into office. (or so they think they put him in office!)
According to VanDehel and Allen, the Soetoro administration uses various “techniques” to always frame media coverage the way they want it.
These techniques include but are not restricted to limiting access to the president so that media can never get an unvarnished report on any aspect of the Soetoro agenda and policies.
Other techniques are; government creation of media content (photos of the president, videos of White House officials, blog posts written by Obama aides), which can then be instantly released to the masses through social media. They often include footage unavailable to the press.
The White House has built its own content distribution net.
Soetoro’s aides use technology and exploit the president’s “brand.” They are disciplined about cracking down on staff leaks, or reporters who write things they don’t like. And they are obsessed with taking advantage of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and every other social media forums, not just for campaigns, but governing. The president’s aides often intimidates and attempts to control media stories.
This president and Democrats receive Softball interviews, this administration practices weekend document and information dumps to avoid negative coverage, and they practice iron-fisted control of access to White House information and officials.
This president practices absolute scrutiny avoidance. The president has not granted an interview to print reporters at The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, POLITICO and others in years
Finally, they also bully reporters: making clear there will be no interviews, or even questions at press conferences, if Soetoro aides are displeased with their coverage.
Before you say, Bush did it too. He did not. Much of the propaganda techniques use by the Soetoro administration are either original to it or done in such extreme fashion that they are unrecognizable as ever been used before.
Americans have been and are being deceived by this president and his political Party; it is all propaganda you know nothing about Barry Hussein Soetoro other than what he’s allowed you to know. To that end, believe me when I say that as Americans we know nothing about Barry Hussein Soetoro that isn’t carefully crafted and spoon fed to us by the Soetoro administration.
