    (Daily Beast)- In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, the Fox News chief says Obama thinks differently from most Americans, defends Murdoch’s GOP donations, and admits Beck sometimes goes too far.
    In the media world, as in politics, having a high-profile target can be a very good thing.
    The age of Obama has provided a ratings boost for Fox News as its loudest personalities have relished the opportunity to play offense. Critics, of course, view Fox as an unabashed cheerleader for the Republican Party, an evil media empire spewing propaganda and misinformation at a gullible audience.
    But Roger Ailes says his network is just reflecting reality when it comes to the White House.
    “The president has not been very successful,” the Fox News chairman says in a lengthy interview. “He just got kicked from Mumbai to South Korea, and he came home and attacked Republicans for it. He had to be told by the French and the Germans that his socialism was too far left for them to deal with.”
    The 70-year-old Ailes, dressed in a lavender shirt and tie, goes on in this vein, saying the network isn’t singling out Obama for criticism but that its style “tends to be more direct” in challenging presidents. Then he offers this observation about Obama:
    “He just has a different belief system than most Americans.”
    That seems a rather loaded phrase—different belief system—even if you strongly disagree with most of Obama’s policies. It fits the view of those who are trying to paint the president as being outside the mainstream. But from the big second-floor office at Fox’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters, it’s the rest of the media that are using a distorted lens.
    “He’s had 3,000 press secretaries since he got into office,” Ailes says of Obama, but these days, “he’s making it harder for the press to make him look good… When the press falls in love, they fall in love hard. They’re like teenagers in love. It’s like the old Frankie Lymon song, ‘Why Do Fools Fall in Love?’”
    Rest here>>>

    His ideals are alien to me. I can't fathom the idea of "buying" anything from the government, and he can't grasp why so many of us think that way.

    So you think his trip was successful?
    For some reason, that doesn't surprise me.

    He was all but openly laughed at on his trip.

    The shine is off the shoes, the world knows he is not an actual leader. When you fail to lead the people that elected you to lead, people notice.

    It was unsucecssful, certainly, but why? It seems to me, it was unsuccessful because the world's leaders are fearful of a currency war developing, not because of Obama's "socialism".

    So you think the currency war has nothing to do with his socialism?

    Not particularly, but if you disagree, I'm willing to hear your case.
