We all know that the MSM would excoriate a Republican for playing so much golf or having so many parties or taking so many vacations or for constantly campaigning. I have long believed that until the MSM turns on obama, he will continue to do things and get away with things that no Republican would even dream of.
Is that beginning to happen.
An unidentified "hardcore democrat" journalist, was quoted as saying that she would not miss covering obama because "He's an inch deep. Bush is a bottomless chasm, a deep, mysterious, emotional, profound man. Obama is all surface, shallow, obvious, robotic, and frankly, not nearly as smart as he thinks. Bush was the one." (Curl: W outclasses Barack and Bill without even trying, www.washingtontimes.com)
Peggy Noonan, writing in the Wall Street Journal said that the Washington press corps "doesn't much like Mr. Obama because he's not all that likable . . .". (The Presidential Wheel Turns, WSJ.com)
"Obama's hubris problem" screams a headline at politico.com, which tells of how obama would be holding a moment of silence for the victims of the Boston bombings and no one else was invited . . . except for a White House photographer, obviously there for the sole purpose of capturing this "private" moment of mourning.
Included in that article is the sentence "Unfortunately, this president's acts of high handedness and self-absorption have been accumulating in the past several months at a blistering pace."
This otherwise excellent article was ruined by one of the closing sentences: "If Obama starts to get too grand a sense of himself and sheds the last vestiges of concern for how others perceive him . . ." Unfortunately, obama has spent the past five years showing that he already has "too grand a sense of himself". And, there is nothing in the record to show that he has ever had "concern for how others perceive him".
In fact, I believe obama's response has been "I won", which is pretty much the same thing as "My way or the highway".
Obama crossed a line with his recent temper tantrum in the Rose Garden when gun control failed, which showed him for the petulant child he is. And the air traffic controller crisis was a complete failure for obama. Contrary to what he thought, people got ticked off and instead of blaming Republicans, looked to him. Congress very quickly passed bipartisan legislation to get the traffic controllers back to work.
Obama has spent the past several years getting a pass for everything he does, when he's not getting outright praise. As a consequence, he has begun to believe that nothing he does is out of bounds. At some point in time, even his most die hard fans are going to say, even if not out loud, that something is very wrong here.
Got to wonder who will be the first lefty journalist obama kiss bot to speak out. When that happens, it'll be pretty much over for the boy who would be king.
