President Obama just delivered his post-victory shutdown remarks. He included a remarkable little slam on those of us who exercise the First Amendment in the course of earning a living.

“But all my friends in Congress, understand that how business is done in this town has to change because we’ve all got a lot of work to do on behalf of the American people and that includes the hard work of regaining their trust,” Obama lectured. “And our system of self-government doesn’t function without it. And now that the government is reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists and the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict and focus what the majority of Americans sent us here to do and that’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul. That’s why we’re here. That should be our focus.”

Emphasis added to highlight the hypocrisy. Prior to his political career, Barack Obama was a community organizer. Community organizers are professional activists who profit from conflict.

Obama’s snide slam on bloggers didn’t play well even with some of his base in the media.




I’m sure they won’t hold it against him, though.
