Newsweek's Fareed Zakaria's Parallel Universe
Newsweek ^ | Fareed Zakaria

Posted on 05/04/2009 8:41:09 AM PDT by jwb0581

Anyone else catch Fareed Zakaria's Newsweek column about Obama's GREAT first 100 days?

"What Obama has been able to accomplish in his first 100 days is enough to make any president envious."

Is Zakaria living in a parallel universe? No mention of:

-the Steve Croft interview in which Obama appeared high on something and laughed uncontrollably at the state of the economy

-the offensive Special Olympics joke

-the bow to the king of Saudi Arabia

-the bro handshake and ear to ear smiles with Hugo Chavez, and what that did to the psyche of Chavez's opposition in Venezuela

-unprecedented growth in federal government spending, prompting nearly 1 million Americans to organize a protest on tax day

-Obama's attempt to walk through a window at the White House during his first week

-Obama telling his teleprompter to slow down

-Obama hanging Biden out to dry with "I don't know what Joe meant, as usual"

-Obama apologizing for America's bad attitude to Europe, then rejecting a visit to Normandy to avoid insulting Germany

And this is just the first 100 days! Feel free to add to this list if I forgot any. Maybe we can send it to Zakaria to refresh his memory.

Sorry, you just don’t get it about Fareed. He thinks your list is a compendium of achievements. Except walking through the window, which only proves Zero’s humanity quotient.

His holiness Obama is seen with Fareed’s wunnerful book, a lucrative endorsement, yes? So Fareed is bound to be pleased with Obama for that reason alone. Don’t know if Zakarhea is a fellow left wing nut or not, but I figure CNN is mainly a collection of socialists with one or two token Buchananites. Just the thing to make airport food even less palatable.
