For the first time since President Barack Obama’s emergence in 2004 at the Democratic Convention in Boston, the national news media, long in the tank for Obama, has begun to run him through the ringer all other presidents have experienced.
Up to now, Obama was immune to this process because the media is so invested in the rise and success of the first African-American president of the United States. Indeed, the so-called mainstream media still wants him to succeed and to win re-election in 2012; his failure — or failure to be re-elected — would be seen as a collective failure of the left.
But the bumbling, stumbling, aimless, naïve, reverse-course Obama presidency has hit the skids and even the media can no longer restrain itself.
Here are some examples:
- Obama went crazy over a very popular Arizona immigration law and then tried to get ahead of this explosive immigration issue by symbolically dispatching 1,200 National Guardsmen down to the Arizona border.
- After being viewed as passive about the BP leak, he suddenly announced he was going down to the Gulf on Friday.
- After offending the Israeli prime minister a few months ago, and thus straining relations with Israel, the White House has now reversed course and invited Benjamin Netanyahu back to D.C. for another round of talks. Undoubtedly Obama’s plummeting status with a base Democratic Party constituency — American Jews — has come back to haunt him.
Obama does not have a clue how to be a president. He is a creation of a politically correct-obsessed media and culture.
Merit and experience count for nothing among the left; it is all gender and racial politics and quotas, all designed to redress past wrongs. The left is killing our country. But this was inevitable after eight disastrous Bush years which discredited conservatism and opened the door for these misfits to regain power.
The Obama presidency is finally being exposed for what it is: an empty vessel piloted by a guy who can’t speak without a teleprompter and who just follows the Western European anti-American, anti-free enterprise, liberal socialistic model.
