Fox News: The Anointed One Is Already President

At least we have the allegedly right-wing Fox News to counter the Obamunist hype blaring from the rest of the mainstream media. How's this for fair and balanced:

"There is really only one de facto president, and we finally have accepted that — that it's Obama," said FOX News contributor Fred Barnes, executive editor of the Weekly Standard.

Norman Ornstein of the AEI explains why Obama hasn't followed the normal protocol of waiting until his term starts:

"Normally presidents-elect try to avoid getting into policy, stepping on the toes of the president who's there. That's how Obama started," he said. "It's changed, and I think the main reason for the change is the market tanking" in mid-November.

As I remember, the market went into a nosedive on news that the media had managed to get a socialist community organizer elected president. But Fox News has a different recollection:

Markets tumbled when Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said he planned to leave half of a $700 billion federal bailout package to the Obama administration, spelling months of financial insecurity as some $350 billion sat in limbo.

Everything is okay now, though…

He later relented on that promise, and markets soared when Obama announced the appointment of an experienced team of economic advisers … whose presence ensured continuity and reassured markets.
"In this particular time of financial crisis, it's a good thing that Obama is calming the markets and the public, showing that he's amply preparing to take over," said Larry J. Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.

The Dow Jones fell 680 points yesterday; it has plunged 1,476 points since Obama was elected. But at least The One has calmed Fox News, if not the markets or the public.

What happened to FOX?

FOX said he started the "Office of the President Elect". He has made a mockery of our constitution just getting elected. Why stop there.

He and the Democrats caused the fiasco we are in, they might as well start taking the blame for it! Just make sure the historians get it right. He will need troops to keep the people in line once they find out what a mistake they have made. No wonder he is talking about 20,000 troops to patrol inside the US already, "To Bolster Domestic Security" as they say....

He will need the protection.

By choosing Hillary as his Secretary of State, he's already violated the Constitution..and he's not even President yet.

Look...I voted for Bush both times. I even pinched my nose, fought back the vomit, and pulled the lever for Maverick McAmnesty this time. But if Bush wants to be President until January, he's got to get his *ss out of the Oval Office and bloody well act like one! Seriously ... where the hell was he when the economy was tanking? The old imperative is true: Lead, Follow, or Get the H*ll Out of the Way! If George won't do the first, he needs to do the last!

The reason for FOX saying this may be because they don't want to be completely shut out from this incming administration.
After all, according to this, FOX has yet to be allowed to ask ONE question at any of the Obama pressers since he was elected!

Sorry, um, why was it that the Fairness Doctrine was necessary again?
