    Edited on Mon Nov-15-10 07:59 PM by jenmito
    Obama was on his 10-day trip over-seas doing VERY important work yet we saw almost NONE of it in the media. Yet W was given a full hour interview on NBC, replayed multiple times on MSNBC, interviewed on CNN, Oprah, and of course Faux.

    Palin's "reality show" was promoted to death on all cable news networks, complete with clips and info. about where the show will debut.

    Then, after ignoring all the hard work President Obama has been doing, the media compares him to W-negatively, of course: "W had such a personable way, a common touch, a good guy. Obama seems out of touch with the people."

    Then the media discusses Palin's show and how great it is to "re-introduce" her to the people in preparation for a '12 presidential run the way her show does-how people will relate to her.

    I know everyone sees what's going on, but I wanted to point it out.
    That's because Obama's trip was a failure....he didn't achieve what he set out to do, much less anything else.

    2. The undermining and disrespect given our President is ridiculous.

    When the media goes to Sarah Palin's reaction to everything Obama does or says we should turn the channel. She has been pushed into the limelight, because the people that hate her watch her
    every move. She is a female shock jock. Just like Howard Stern when he first went national. People that hated him listened intently every day to get angry and shocked by his vulgarity.
    Palin is an intellectual vulgarity.

    3. And yet so many people don't think Palin's a threat.

    Even though she's already got 45% approval -- almost the same as Obama.

    Scary

    5. Everyone sees what's going on, but then refuse to acknowledge

    that part of our problem is the media,
    and instead they blame Obama for everything....
    as though he has powers to stop the fucked up media
    from doing what it has already decided to do.

    It's amazing how many want to pretend they don't know,
    although they really do. Amazing. I just wonder why they do it.
    If the media wasn't propping up Obama by refusing to report and investigate things and by sugar coating things his approval rating would be about 20%.

    Palin and Bush are entertaining and likable. Obama's 24/7 campaigning and dissing of America, not so much.

    Hmmm, reminds me of Thumper's mother (remember Disney's Bambi?) telling him that, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."

    That sez it..............

    And you should be on your knees thanking the media for that. By not giving Obama more press on his trip they saved him looking like a bigger failure. What did he accomplish on this trip? Nothing.

    We would have all been better off if he just took another vacation and went golfing.

    This was an escape from the inevitable thumping he was going to take in the election. He planned to be gone during this time all the while. His delicate ego couldn't have withstood the questions that he would have been asked. His trip was a way for him to deflect any election questions into a summit question. He was being his usual cowardly self.

    As if 0bumbler & Hillary didn't get more press than President Bush for the last year of his presidency.
