Hat Tip to Josh Gernstein at Politico.
A four-hour stop in New Orleans, on his way to a $3 million fundraiser.
Snubbing the Dalai Lama.
Signing off on a secret deal with drug makers.
Freezing out a TV network.
Doing more fundraisers than the last president. More golf, too.
Barack Obama has done all of those things — and more.
What’s remarkable is what hasn’t happened. These episodes haven’t become metaphors for Obama’s personal and political character — or consuming controversies that sidetracked the rest of his agenda.
It’s a sign that the media’s echo chamber can be a funny thing, prone to the vagaries of news judgment, and an illustration that, in politics, context is everything.
Not to mention the imbecilic gaffes, the broken promises, the thuggish takeover of private industry and banks, and the socialist agenda destroying the economy and war efforts.
When George W. Bush was in office, the MSM conducted a daily body count (of American troops, not the enemy) and vilified him when he took time off. They kept close tabs on the fluctuating economy, but not on the success in Iraq and Afghanistan. They monitored his speeches for mispronunciation and portrayed him as stupid.
With Obama… not one fucking word. They still think Obamessiah is the world’s Lord and Savior. He can do no wrong. The MSM is still drooling over this incompetent, socialist milksop. Chrissy Matthews still gets a “tingle up his leg”. The White House emails a “correction” to MSNBC’s Mika Brezinsky in the middle of a conversation, and she complies. They suppress reports about his background, friends, associates, and czars, that reveal his radical proclivities. They spiked the stories on ACORN corruption, and serve as a buffer for unflattering news.
The MSM is so far up Obama’s ass they can taste everything he eats.
