You want a blatant example of the Old Media's over-the-top, gobsmacked love affair with Obama? Well, one would be hard pressed not to see Time Magazine's latest piece by Nancy Gibbs as a perfect example of the media ignoring all ills and of projecting only what is wonderful onto the dearly beloved as this piece represents. The lionization of Obama is bad enough, but the selective memory of the writer is even more appalling.
Writer Gibbs begins her column trying to "place" Barack Obama in a "cultural map." Most famous people are remembered for a certain place that formed their inner core, of course, and Gibbs tries to pinpoint that place for several presidents including Obama. She pegs Ronald Reagan to Hollywood, Clinton to Hot Springs and W. to Texas. But where does she place Obama...
Easy Reader (Morgan Freeman)A smooth hipster who loved to read at every opportunity and every printed thing he saw.
Obama is happiest reading off a teleprompter.
He's frequently coming off as a caricature of himself and he lives in a fantasy world.
They're still publishing????
To me it sounds more like a first grader, but I'm more concern about whose hand is up it's ....
How I got a subscription to Time is a long and boring story. Unfortunately it has been coming to the house every week for a couple of months. Every week I fling it across the house in disgust. This week there is a long patronizing, error filled, garbage filled, essay on why we have reason to hope Christians and Muslims will mature into good little one worlders. This week I set it on fire before I through it out the door.
“The lionization of Obama is bad enough, but the selective memory of the writer is even more appalling.”
The reason for the selective memory is linked here:
I’m hip to the comparison. The guy lives in a fantasy world so, why not? She didn’t mean it that way but, she pegged the guy to a “T”.
Jay Carney, one of Biden’s top advisers, used to be Nancy Gibbs’ boss when he was Washington bureau chief for Time until he left for the WH, what does that tell you?
“But where does she place Obama...”
Not having read the article (heh), I’d guess either in Kenya, or Hawaii on the beach.
Either spot would suit him FAR better than the White House (note: NOT the “people’s house” you racist Marxists!).
Moral retards are incestuous?
