Just plain incredible, total Obamanipulation!.
Isn’t it disturbing to see how pro-OBObama the media outlets are? Everything good is about the audacious guy full of hope and everything negative is about the McCain camp.
When Obama made his speech in Berlin or gathered tens of thousands of supporters in a stadium, it was unique, magical, blah blah. Pailin just did the same with at least 60 thousand people in Florida and it is not newsworthy. Her inauguration speech attracted more viewers than Obama’s but it was not newsworthy. “Sarah who” stole the Obama’s convention thunder and poll rebound but it was not newsworthy. She got more votes as a Gov than Biden as a presidential pretender but it is not newsworthy.
As a mayor of a small town, she got a tougher job than a Senator in Washington and it is not newsworthy (don’t take my word for it. Joe Biden actually claimed in an interview that he had it harder as a city councilman than as a senator!)
She got more done as a “Ponce Pilate” style Governor than a “Jesus” like community organizer that cannot perform miracles, but it is not newsworthy. She got more approval ratings than Obama and McCain but it was not newsworthy.
Every day in my soon to be bankrupt McClatchy newspaper I see columns after columns and articles after articles serving again and again deliberate lies and claims long debunked by fact checkers (how McCain tried to regulate the housing and financial markets many times is the latest example).
The financial crisis occurred and McCain had a plan right away – but Obama needs more time to think about it but we need to ACT NOW but he needs to think and figure something out.
Gas prices went to the roof and McCain had a plan drill now and figure out something later but Obama needs more time to think about it no point in drilling we need to change everything and it will take years but we need to ACT NOW but he needs to think and figure something out electric cars (where does electricity comes from), hybrid cars (where do the batteries go) and inflate your tires.
Georgia McCain had a plan but Bush and Obama needed to think and figure something out and Russia laughed and taunted us.
The Democrats are still neck to neck with McCain despite having everything for them: a messiah, an old Washingtonite to compensate his foreign affairs inexperience, a President with low approval ratings (but Congress is so far lower), an expensive and unpopular war, a financial crisis, a housing crisis, a gas price crisis, total media support, and still they cannot get ahead. What is wrong with the picture, with the Obama ticket? Why aren’t the Dems sailing to the White house after 8 years of the hated Bush, the Patriot act, Guantanamo, the wars, the buddies, global warming, health disaster, high deficit, Katrina. What is wrong with you guys?
In order to get an unbiased view of the news, I need to dig deep down in the Internet, go to foreign news sites and everywhere, the same questions: why is not Obama winning in a landslide? Has the Pailin phenomenon taken over? Is Obama like Biden: old news! Are the Democrats losing on major issues?
What is your take? Is Biden the anchor that has stopped Obama? Or has Obama not been able to stand public scrutiny?
