Let's take today's example.
Obama: Quit Listening to Rush Limbaugh if You Want to Get Things Done
Obama warned Republicans to quit listening to Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats, during a White House discussion on his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

WASHINGTON -- President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.

"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts.

"There are big things that unify Republicans and Democrats," the official said. "We shouldn't let partisan politics derail what are very important things that need to get done."

Obama: Quit Listening to Rush Limbaugh if You Want to Get Things Done - Presidential Politics | Political News - FOXNews.com


Let's look closer. In the headline and subject line they say that Obama says: "Quit Listening to Rush Limbaugh if You Want to Get Things Done" then he WARNS them to quit listening to Limbaugh.

The we go to the actual quote. ""You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,". Interesting. A completely different meaning. A completely different tone and completely different message.

Wonder which one the Shrinking28 will read and blog about for the next two weeks?
I fail to see/hear the difference. FWIW: The Post says exactly the same thing: "WASHINGTON -- President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration."

It should become much more clear.

I wasn't targeting anyone, nor was Obama.

And I can't imagine Bush saying that. The grammar and sentence construct was correct.

Now that's interesting bear. Your entire point in posting this BearShit thread was to attack FOX News: to wit, "AH Faux. Never let it be said they don't know how to misinterpret and mislead. In that skillset, they excel." Yet Fox was just reporting what the Post had published. So, as is often the case, your posts are just more bogus BS.

I was pointing out Faux's MISLEADING HEADLINES which were different yet just as misleading as the Post's was dumb.

Context and comprehension. Valuable tools in the 21st Century.
