CNN Columnist: Obama has "Transformed into Superman"
Pundit Press ^ | 9/21/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 09/21/2011 3:17:24 PM PDT by rightistight

CNN, like the rest of the Main Stream Media, likes to pretend that they do not have a liberal bias. Everyone knows they do, but they simply stick their fingers in their ears and mumble "no we don't" over and over again.

Gloria Borger, in an odd op-ed that doesn't particularly seem to make a point, now states that President Obama has somehow "transformed... from the mild-mannered Clark Kent into, well, Superman." No liberal bias, huh?

The piece's main gist is this: evil "Republicans" went against "liberals" and "the rest of us" by demanding spending cuts, while refusing to raise taxes. President Obama's speech this week "transformed" him from an average person into Superman because he began to "play the game." Or something like that. Quite frankly, it's hard to say what Ms. Borger is really talking about, because at one moment she calls Mr. Obama Superman, and the next she says "the rest of us" (who "the rest of us" are, she never specifies) are waiting for the real Superman.

Either way, Ms. Borger says that Obama transformed or something, but his speech was "politics." And yet, "the rest of us" (once again, undefined), cannot "really fault the White House for playing politics with Republicans who have refused to cut the big deals."

Well, I can and I bet a lot of "us" can. I don't know who the "rest of us" are, but I bet most can find fault with the President.

Ms. Borger really is a dope. She is a low IQ shill for liberal thought. Her lack of general knowledge about current affairs is stunning. Any media outlet employing her is simply a propaganda outfit because she brings absolutely no insight to any issue.

while the MSM certainly has a liberal bias, an Oped is supposed to have bias. It is an opinion editorial.

She is so desperate to believe her fantasy is true it has become her reality.

I expect we'll see a lot more of this as the reality about this colassal failure of a president proceeds to the point where it can no longer be denied by those equally desperate to be taken seriously.

And yet she ends by saying:

As for the rest of us, we're still Waiting for Superman. The real one.

She's quite incoherent (and where does she get off with that "us"?).

My guess is all she had was the "Superman" metaphor. That wasn't much. It didn't fit the situation. And she didn't know how to use it. But I guess she had a deadline coming and it's all she had.

Maybe writing like this is the reason why her last employer, US News and World Report, pretty much went out of business.

I have no doubt she may be delusional. I’m just saying she is dumb as a box of rocks. She proves it every time she opens her mouth or writes something. She is an embarrassment.
