I had thought there could be no one more self obsessed and camera hungry than Bill Clinton; or a Press that could be so supportive and such apologists. Was I wrong. We now live in the “Age of Obama”. All Obama all the time. This guy is in every news story all day every day. He infects every aspect of our lives.
ABC news has been dubbed the ‘All Barack Channel’. It’ll be doing a special from the White House with Obama to promote his single payer healthcare program. That will be followed by an hour long infomercial promoting it. He denies its single payer, but he’s made several statements in the past stating he wants a single payer program. Health here is close to 20% of the economy, so that would be a boon to even more government control of our lives. In less than two hundred days in office, he’s taken over much of the auto industry, financial institutions, and insurance institutions. The press for all practical purposes is now state run. You’ll only find media criticism on Fox News and in the blogosphere.
The Republican Party and the group ‘Conservatives for Patients Rights’ ask to present an opposing view and was denied. They said they would pay for it, and ABC said no. A couple weeks ago NBC News with anchor Brian Williams did a fawning special, in the White House, that was all fluff and praise. Brian Williams even bowed to him! Thank goodness for bloggers or nothing this guy does to overthrow the Constitution would get reported.
About the funniest thing, and so indicative of the swooning slobbering press here, is when he swatted a fly. It was breaking news, and made headlines!
David Gregory on the "Today" show: "You just have to appreciate the, the concentration and the precision! Just a few things going on in the world but it's as if everything was stopped and at a standstill for the President to lower the boom."
Chris Wragge on "The Early Show": "We've also just confirmed the President is a Ninja."
Chris Cuomo on "Good Morning America" describing the event on a telestrator: "You see? He stares at the fly. How many times have each of us tried to do this? Look at the hand coming up. The poise. The cupping. And the quick slap...Just knocked it away, very rare."
All this following the statement from Newsweek Magazine editor Evan Thomas: "I mean, in a way, Obama's standing above the country, above -- above the world, he's sort of God."
Journalism in America is dead except for bloggers.
One last thing not being reported or Obama being criticized for in the Main Stream Media (MSM), is his cowardly, spineless response to what’s going on in Iran. He should have, at the jump, said he supports the People, supports free speech and supports Liberty.
Instead he made vacuous statements meaning nothing. Then again, free speech, justice and liberty he doesn’t even support in America.
