LC’s Commentary

Listen To The Voice of Reason

Save me a seat at the table

 

I continue to be amused as I observe Conservative Talk Radio (CTR) and Fox News Network (FNN) and now Fox Business Network (FBN) jockey for the position of Trump’s favorite so called news outlet. Talk about sucking up to an individual. I know Trump salivates each time he sees these folks literally down on their knees and begging him not to forget them and the favors they are now doing for him during this election cycle. Megan Kelly and Roger Aisles were at odds with Trump until his numbers went up in the polls and his delegate count did likewise. It is uncertain at this time, who waved the white flag. Knowing Trump when it comes to backing down from a position, I would say Fox caved in.

There was certainly a time when most of the above mentioned so called news outlet, were for the most part railing against Trump and figured he did not have a chance of becoming the Republican nominee. Wrong just as they were wrong about Obama becoming President of these United States. How many times can they get it wrong?

As we get ever closer to the Republican Convention in Cleveland Ohio in June of this year, many people including the talking head of the Republican Party and their CTR, FNN, and FBN flunkies are scratching their heads and wondering how and why this thing has gotten so messy and uncertain. I am wondering when some if not all of these talking heads will find a way to blame their problems and situations on President Obama and Liberals.

Of course, much of what is happening can be laid squarely at the feet of CTR, FNN and FBN. Republican Office holders must share a lot of the responsibility for what is taking place. They were constantly running to these outlets and mouthing off, mostly about how bad President Obama had made it since taking office. According to all of them, nothing has improved since George Bush left office. Funny that not one of them is willing to say “ Let us put things back the way they were when Obama took office. “

Some would say, many people would not benefit, no matter which Political Party is in office, especially those of the middle and lower income class. I suppose it is akin to where and how the poison is dispensed and who dispenses it.

Here is where CTR, FNN and FBN have really poisoned the well and made civil discussion impossible about the have and have not, rich and poor, workers and jobless, and the list goes on and continues to grow. To these outlets, everything is just a game with the winners taking all. Any conversation about more people sharing in the wealth of this nation is berated and disavowed by these folks. Their listeners buy into this, no matter that their wealth continues to wane and will eventually be wiped out. One of their favorite dividers is called income/wealth redistribution. Another one is over-taxing the rich. Never mind clear indications and fact that the rich continues to get richer, while at the same time the middle class and lower income people become poorer.

A lot of political power lies in the middle class. It common knowledge, or should be, that most people in the middle-class are white. They are the ones who are finally tired of seeing their wealth and buying power on a down hill spiral. Many things taking place in the United Stated have negatively impacted them to the point where they are saying, we will not take it anymore, and are willing to do whatever to right the ship.

I am certain there will come a day when they will realize that CTR, FNN and FBN has never had their best interest in mind and they have been nothing but pawns for these outlets for many years and election cycles.

The middle Class apparent selection to take on the Establishment is questionable. However, if not him, who? People are just looking for change. They were looking for change when they elected Obama. I hope whom ever is elected will make changes that will make life better for all, instead of just make change for the sake of change.

What impacts will CTR, FNN and FBN have on the eventual outcome of the election; will they be singled out as some of the main causes of the caustic, inflammatory and devise political discourse that permeates the halls of Congress? Or will they be giving a free pass to continue to do business as usual, playing one side against the other.

The Republican Party is finally waking up to the fact that these outlets can be very cruel, and take no prisoners. Having tired of picking on Liberals, they have turned their attack dogs of who or what were once their favorite people. Plain and simple, they see no need to seek favoritism and buddies from some Conservatives, and are willing to take their chances with new faces and ideas, especially Trump and his followers.

Where are Dick Morris, Ann Coulter, Bill Crystal, Carl Rowe and other so-called spokespersons for Conservatives? These outlets have used them up and they are looking for a new crop of flunkies and water-carriers.

Conservative Talk Radio, Fox News Network and Fox Business Network are doing everything in their power to get on the good side of Trump, just in case he becomes President of these United States
