I found the following people engaging because it highlighted something from the President’s very weird appearance on Comedy Central and I think reveals another truth about the man.
And that got me to thinking, always a bad thing… 🙂
Remember this from 2009: “I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president,” he told ABC’s “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer.
What happens when you can’t be a “good” one-term president because you’re so hated by the public that your party is tossed out on it’s jackass.
And your Narcissistic Personality Disorder and your extreme Ideology prevents you from moderating your own hubris.
You become a martyr for the cause!!
The Progressive Far-Left Socialist Cause. The wet dream of Liberals since the 1920’s.
The analysis of the president’s much publicized, bizarre appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart continues. Mostly due to the fact it wasn’t the jovial, yuck-fest everyone anticipated. Instead the “interview” was cutting and revealing — akin to a scalping.
It may have been the toughest interview the president has endured since he was elected. Obama-friendly Stewart turned critic, asking the question about Washington we all want the answer to: what happened to that change thing Obama promised. This is not the question the president needs to be struggling to answer less than a week from the mid-term elections.
Obama’s response: Wait for it . . . no, really you have to wait for it. This evoked laughter. In fact, the intermittent periods of laughter appeared to be directed at the president and not with him. You can’t blame the audience for being disrespectful. What he was saying was laughable.
The president, rather audaciously, admitted to abandoning those lofty principles of change he expounded in 2008 to play the Washington game. He justified it as a show of martyrdom: the American people were in a time of crisis and need. This ends-justifies-the-means tactic defines Americans’ disdain for Washington.
The quintessential cynic Stewart unwittingly exposed the reason for Obama’s unpopularity — not the health-care bill or the auto bailouts — but his orphaning of hope and change. Stewart managed to highlight what Americans have discovered: we elected another politician and not a principled leader. (Jeff Sural)
So who thinks the media will turn on a dime and suddenly Obama will be made the object of sympathy and that he will be shown to be fighting the good fight and battling overwhelming evil (aka Republicans) and valiantly striving for the betterment of the American People against a mean,old,nasty Congress that wants grandma to be homeless,Social Security-less, and eating dog food with her dead sister dentures!! <<“Rocky” theme insert here>>.
So from Nov3, 2010 until Nov 2012 the media will be Burgess Meredith on the sidelines cajoling “Rocky” Barack to take down the evil enemy Apollo Creed-Republicans (to be emblazoned by Sarah Palin and likely soon-to-be Speaker John Boehner).
He will be fighting the good fight to save you from the evil!
“David” Barack Vs. the Republican “Corporate” Goliath.
You though 2008 was a sycophantic nightmare, just wait.
The Liberal media hasn’t even begun to suck. 🙂
