Do you need Obama coverage 24 hours a day? In several markets, Comcast cable is launching an all-Obama, On Demand channel. (In D.C., it's channel 963).
Leading up to Inauguration, the channel will offer a number of Obama-related programs, according to a release: "Barack Obama’s most famous speeches to date, from his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 through his election night victory speech in Grant Park; Barack Obama biography; Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech; a tour of the White House; and the history of Air Force One."

If I want porn, I’ll turn on the Playboy Channel.
CNN did it first.
What about MS National Barack Channel?
I’d rather watch Lifetime channel than that crap.
It just gets sicker and sicker and sicker! This worshiping of Obama isn’t just disgusting, it is downright frightening!
The stuff spewing out of the TV and newspapers is what Jim Jones could only dream about.
It's a virtual test pattern, watched by the brain-dead. i.e. Obama lovers. Wheras CNN....nevermind.
That will be Sunday mornings hosted by Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
Yet another reason why I refuse to have cable/satellite.
He has to keep hyping his minions. He has to be able to tell them how bad off they are, so he can then turn around and offer then hope, then get them to do his bidding. He is counting on them to help him get all the stuff he wants through congress etc.
We republicans go about doing our own thing, failing to organize. Trying to herd a bunch of republicans into a corral so they can act together effectively is like herding cats. The only thing we will end up doing together is going down together.
No, He is not my "GOD." I do not worship a corrupt politician.
Nor will I bow down to a manifestation of the beast and his image.
I'm going to watch it eating off of my Present Obama Special Issue Plates and pay my Comcast Cable bill with Official United States Mint Obama Gold Bling Dollars which I paid $29.99 for (4 set limit per family)
I'll wear my Obama T-Shirt and my Obama Boxers and my Obama Slippers and and and.....HELP!
Some experts have stated that Obama uses NLP techniques (Neuro Linguistic Progamming) to ‘sell’ his ‘message’ via unethical means. NLP is also used by unethical lawyers, salespeople and carnival hypnotists - yes it really is a form of mental suggestion (hypnosis) that can powerfully influence some people. ANd this is why some people faint, cry, swoon etc. at his speeches while, to the rest of us, his speeches lack content or logic. I do wonder if that is why some otherwise respected media types (conservative) seemed to gush about him (i.e. Noonan?) For NLP to work, it requires a slow pace and repetition and that is what Obama is getting with his own channel. *shudder*
I thought that was MSNBC...
I really really want an Obama Bobblehead!

1 Review for Obama Inaugural Souvenirs Center
Bring your camera, because they have a presidential podium, a replica of the Oval Office, and several Obama cardboard cutouts for your posing pleasure. (When I asked, the staff kindly photographed me looking studious behind the Oval Office desk).
I came looking for stocking stuffers for my Obamaphile friends. I walked out with a nice inaugural golf towel, a couple festive White House postcards, and an Obama action figure (You can make him point dramatically).
The tchotchkes weren't quite as tacky or funny as I'd hoped. There were no velvet paintings or irreverant slogans that you might find at online shops like Cafe Press. However, the store did sell Obama bobbleheads, Obama hot sauce, playing cards, and buttons the size of plates. And of course the usual magnets, mugs, and first family t-shirts (yes, some of the shirts even depict Malia and Sasha),
For such a flag-draped ultra-patriotic store, though, there were an awful lot of knick-knacks with "Made in China/Vietnam/etc." labels. Oh well.
BTW, this is a private shop with no connection to the Obama administration or the official inauguration committee.
People thought this was:
Obama is such an empty suit that even the corrupt media will not be able to pretend for long that Obama knows squat about anything. Disillusion will be huge. They’ll blame Bush.
Remider to self; contact an attorney to sue for Comcasts monoply of Cable television in my area! Ma-bell was broken for anti-trust its comcasts turn.
This so reminds me of Cuba and Venezuela where it is all Castro all the time and all Chubby all the time.
Nice to see Obama is following in the footsteps of his mentors.
Wonder if his speeches will start going 4, 5, 6 hours long? Will he break out his Che t-shirts?
Signs of desperation and insecurity.
Switch from Comcast if possibly.
What time is the All-Star Tribute to Che Guevera on?
You pull the string of the Raggedy Barry Doll and it squeaks that “I have been to all 57 states and I think I have a few more to go” or something like that
I’d love to know the ratings on this channel. Even among his supporters, who would watch that crap played over and over?
Pardon me while I puke.
I have Verizon. But the idea is preposterous, the guy has done NOTHING. They’ll be in reruns in 4 weeks.
Somewhere there’s a “niche” that the rest of us fit in that neither gush, swoon or cry even over people that we are very enthusiastic about. Conservatives will enumerate where they disagree with their favorite president, congressman, mayor, Chief of Police, etc., and yet still support those same folks.
In short, we don’t “worship” men nor think of them as some sort of god (small “g”) and we recognize that fallen men are just that and that there will always be a time in which they fail in some way or another. I think that “niche” would be the Judeo-Christian ethic.
No thanks- I’ll just watch North Korean TV on Youtube when I need to adulate a “Dear Leader”
You forgot the barf alert.
Media can be made to cooperate, even to respect and enjoy their role a as mouthpiece of the state, and see it as their patriotic duty to cooperate in brainwashing the peasants for the sake of unity.
I used to think it could never happen here. Look at the election results we just had.
The Making of a Fuehrer
Is a CGI 0bama next on the program?
This has grown into scary hysteria. Coins, plates, etc... I understand this is historic, but this has just gotten ridiculous.
Hey, how long before there is a special “Obama” check style?
Like with a little circle Obama logo thing in the corner next to where your name and address is, or something to that effect?
Glad I’m immune, then. I never heard anything of substance in the stump speeches I listened to or read excerpts of. I could never see past the slick PR package and the fact that the media was campaigning 24/7 for him made me suspicious.
All the 0 makes me want to do is what that cat is doing in reply #12.
Thank you for that pdf. I’ve only skimmed the TOC, but plan to read the entire 67 pages. Do you know when and where this was first published?
So who’s the sponsor? Somebody has to support this. If they put a commercial up there, then that’s a VERY easy product to do without.
and this is why he needs the channel - to keep them under the spell - else they might wake up. It's rather like the mind control of the 5 x's a day call to prayer where the muzzies have to play stink bug, with their noses on the ground and butts in the air, to keep the mind-control from being broken...
Question: they will try to put the Fairness Doctrine in place again - SO, will that mean that republicans will also get their own channel??? (right)
