At the above link you will find a montage of statements you’ve made regarding Fox News. Wrapped up in that same collage are fairly obvious stabs at those conservative constituents that may not agree with your administration’s position on issues. I would offer the following sir:

The popular victory that you claimed was anything but a landslide – 69,498,215 votes for and 61,571,790 VOTES AGANIST. Can you really afford to dismiss 61.6 million voters? Figures cited from:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2008

Statements such as:
“Those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I’m not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around”, Obama said, “let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.”

 “But,” Obama continued, “let’s not play games and pretend that the reason [for the deficit] is because of the Recovery Act.” (as quoted on Politico’s website). http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21870.html 

Projected Deficit

In the first independent analysis, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office concluded that President Obama’s budget would rack up massive deficits even after the economy recovers, forcing the nation to borrow nearly $9.3 trillion over the next decade.

As cited from the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/graphic/2009/03/21/GR2009032100104.html

You regularly lay blame at the feet of the former administration, and yet your “recovery act” has quadrupled the debt it took Mr. Bush eight years to accumulate…in only the first 100 days. And when projected deficits are laid out side by side (accounting for your plans to “cut” health care costs, and “stabilize” social security):

The protests that have been mounted are not games. They are the result of a large percentage of the populous seeing through the rhetoric that regularly comes from your office. And my guess is that those sympathetic to the protests number at least around 62 million. That may account for the popularity of the Fox News Channel.

Regardless, your blasé and thinly veiled contempt directed towards not only Fox, but also towards conservative Americans is a truly sad thing.
