Reporter's Notebook: Seeing How The Other Half Lives (0bamas Plane Smells)
CBS News ^ | 10/8/08 | Dean Reynolds

Posted on 10/08/2008 3:38:04 PM PDT by illiac

(NASHVILLE, TENN.) - After most of the previous 12 months covering Barack Obama's campaign for the presidency, it was interesting, instructive and, well, relaxing to follow John McCain for the last few days. The differences between the two are striking.

Of course the plane stinks. Obama and his worshippers are so full of crap.

The national headquarters in Chicago airily dismisses complaints from journalists wondering why a schedule cannot be printed up or at least e-mailed in time to make coverage plans. Nor is there much sympathy for those of us who report for a newscast that airs in the early evening hours.

Why does none of this surprise me?

Orhcestrated chaos, lack of empathy, "airily dismisses' ... there is a DSM code for this.

From the article, it seems the Obama-ites don't quite have a clue about what they're doing. Poor management skills, but they'll vote for Obama anyway.

Then why do the reporters cover for Obama? It is obvious that this is how Obama will run the country. We all must revolve around HIM! It is all about HIM! Self centered egostisical soon to be Marxist dictator.

Wow, Obama sounds like Bubba, completely self absorbed, always running late, etc. The guy seemed to be making a subtle threat...if Obama is elected how long will the honeymoon last with the press, judging by this guy’s attitude, not long.

...John McCain is friendly and loquacious. Obama holds news conferences, but seldom banters with the reporters who've been following him for thousands of miles around the country. Go figure.

'Nuff said.

The McCain folks are more helpful and generally friendly. The schedules are printed on actual books you can hold in your hand, read, and then plan accordingly. The press aides are more knowledgeable and useful to us in the news media. The events are designed with a better eye, and for the simple needs of the press corps. When he is available, John McCain is friendly and loquacious. Obama holds news conferences, but seldom banters with the reporters who've been following him for thousands of miles around the country. Go figure.

The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama's, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated.

The other day in Albuquerque, N.M., the reporters were given almost no time to file their reports after McCain spoke. It was an important, aggressive speech, lambasting Obama's past associations. When we asked for more time to write up his remarks and prepare our reports, the campaign readily agreed to it. They understood.

Similar requests are often denied or ignored by the Obama campaign aides, apparently terrified that the candidate may have to wait 20 minutes to allow reporters to chronicle what he's just said. It's made all the more maddening when we are rushed to our buses only to sit and wait for 30 minutes or more because nobody seems to know when Obama is actually on the move.

Maybe none of this means much. ...

What it means Mr. Reynolds is the Narcissist and Chief ain't got time for mere mortals. I hope I get see some of these media types marched off the camps before they come for me.

Re: “Isn’t that racist?

heh heh... here’s something that surely WOULD be considered racist: Years ago (early 60’s) I remember my (now deceased) mother remarking, when we were on a somewhat smelly train between Chicago and Los Angeles, and with many black passengers: “It smells, dear, because THEY have a certain odor about them.”

Honestly, I have never personally noticed such a thing but I guess it was an accepted ‘truth’ back in the day.

Garbage. Obama's people act that way because they know they can get away with it and it never will "come around." He owns the MSM, period, and carping reporters might just as well take it and shut up, because they're going to vote for him anyway. Done deal.

“Obama doesn’t waste hard earned campaign dollars on “maid service” for the press. Sources say McCaine pays for them all to get foot rubs by nubile Vietnamese girls that he fathered while staying in the luxurious Hanoi Hilton.

Funny!!! When SmellBama was in town a couple months ago talking to union people in a closed meeting.....he went to a small diner afterward with reporters on a bus so they could take pictures and document him shaking hands and hanging out with ‘regular people’.....then slipped out the back and literally left the reporters there to find their way home! LOL!
