Fox News's Obama As "Divider' Is Intellectually Insulting

If you feel the president should have simply handed all governance over to the GOP and if you are a person who hate him solely based on his race.

Over the weekend Fox New's Chris Wallace broadcast a show obviously developed by Fox News management with a goal of feeding its viewers unadulterated propaganda regarding the nation's 44th President. Wallace sat with known and committed Obama hater, Brit Hume, for a few minutes of intellectually insulting garbage. The apparent theme of the Sunday morning show seemed as if it was crafted to slam President Obama with mis-representation of the man (person) as a "Divider." We will address the point of the segment below.

Recall the word divider: "Why Is Obama Such A Divider?" Obama as "divider!" 

President Obama took office on January 20, 2009. I doubt there exist a person in the United States who can effectively and successfully argue President Obama approached his inauguration with national divisiveness as a mission (or even a prospect). We say '"Au contraire"! Conservative claims of "Obama as a divider", is no more than political maneuvering and an attempt to place an unacceptable stamp on the election of the nation's first African-American President. A point driven home by the actions of a group of GOP politicians and operatives, on the very evening of President Obama's inauguration.

A veritable cabal of GOP "Obstruction."

Numerous media have reported Gingrich's remarks at meeting adjournment.
“You will remember this day. You’ll remember this as the day the seeds of 2012 were sown.”
The seeds were sown for what, you might have asked. If you could not find the meaning behind Gingrich's remarks, you are a person who rides the tides of susceptible to GOP political manipulation. The essence of his remarks manifest as such with moths of the meeting.
"The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." Mitch McConnell (then GOP Senate Minority Leader)
The agreed upon plan was for the entire Republican electorate to unilaterally oppose, delay, and reject, everything proposed by the President, regardless of the consequences to the country they were elected to serve and the people they were elected to represent.
The segment is a MSNBC Politics Nation clip of Al Sharpton with guest Newt Gingrich. I a posting the clip with particular interest in the first 3:00 minutes of the air-time. While the clip runs a full six minutes, I respect your available viewing time and only ask that you watch the first few minutes. Basically, Newt Gingrich in an effort to sell his most recent book (at at time), admitted to a meeting of 13 plus Republican members of Congress and at least two GOP operatives (Gingrich a prime example).

Any news segment broadcast on any network with a central theme of Obama as a "divider" is utter poppycock and laden with propaganda for its viewers. If we revisit the most basic of foundations for conducting business, Fox News broadcast of this past Sunday Morning was clearly giving the customer (viewers) what they want.  

As I watched the video embed in the following Crooks & Liars piece, my mind went straight to the current political success in conservative America and one who is giving the customer what they want: the carnival barker Donald Trump.

Chris Wallace: Why Is Obama Such A Divider?

We could rightly entitle this show "Fox News concern-trolls Democrats to distract from Republican obstructionism." I might have let this segment pass, but it's much too evil to allow it to stand unchallenged. Watch Chris Wallace take Republican obstruction and turn it into Obama's fault. WALLACE: All right. Meanwhile, President Obama, as a result of all…
