Get PJ Media on your Apple

The PJ Tatler

As Obama’s worst week ever grinds on, he has overcome his media shyness. The president who has given fewer press conferences than his predecessor had at this point has held two press conferences in as many days, along with a statement about the IRS scandal.

But in none of them, did Barack Obama ever face the media alone.

On Tuesday, he was accompanied by UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

Wednesday night, he was flanked by Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.

Today, he had Turkey Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan alongside.

Two things are obvious in this pattern.

One, Barack Obama is terrified of the press and refuses to face them on his own.

Two, out of fear he is using foreign leaders as props to keep the press from getting out of hand, and to force them to ask questions having nothing to do with his scandals.

Obama is disrespecting our allies, while trying to control the press. Because he is scared.

I'd be scared too if I was him.

It's ironic that Obama, who owes his office to a lap-dog media, is now hiding from that same media. But that's, historically, a very common situation for the Left. Yesterday's allies, become today's enemies, the end justifies the means, and no one is too important to avoid being thrown under the bus.

Cameron and Erdogan are both scoundrels, so I'm sure both of them feel at home with our Scoundrel-in-Chief.

Cameron is a Conservative-in-Name-Only, a public relations specialist who has been dragged kicking and screaming into defending conservative principles in a most lukewarm way, while pushing un-conservative proposals such as gay marriage.

Erdogan is a Muslim who hates the West. But I guess I repeat myself in that sentence.
