Norah Moved By Plight Of . . . Obama Staffers
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 06/08/2010 4:41:10 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

When it comes to heart-wrenching images, forget about those oil-plunged pelicans. What appears to really move Norah O'Donnell is the plight of . . . Pres. Obama's White House staffers.

Check out the very end of the video clip from today's Morning Joe and see if it doesn't seem that O'Donnell gets choked up as she describes Obama aides waking up in the middle of the night with nightmares of gushing oil.

View video here.

Forget the pelicans. Let’s have some sympathy for Obama’s aides. Ping to Today show list.

Grow some, you feckless dweebs. And to think these sort of “people” are “in charge” of anything.

She's an airhead, but I didn't see her get close to tears.

I see on another thread that we lost four unnmanned submersible vehicles off Norfolk. Zero is in charge and he can't control the seabeds off our coasts.

Please have another look at the very, very end of the clip, as she closes her eyes and seems to swallow back her emotion.

I agree. I don’t see her getting misty, and that screenshot is when she’s blinking. She may be blinking slower, but I’m not seeing nor hearing her get emotional. Definitely an airhead, but I think they may be making a mountain out of a molehill.

The dream metaphor is not sympathy but fear of impending doom.

The nightmare depicts the disaster unfolding in America as the tide of gushing oil destroys all the hope and change.

The gushing oil is in reality the bands of revolting tea partiers, the gushing of freedom

Well — maybe. But, I had to look carefully. She’s certainly empathetic to the WH staffers, which is a bit odd. The way I look at it, if this spill is so disruptive for the WH, I wish it would have happened in time to disrupt the energy that was applied to twisting arms, breaking legs, and doling out graft to get Zerocare passed.

Uh Nora, you think the WH staffers are having nightmares how do you think folks on the Gulf Coast are “feeling”?! She’d last about 4 seconds in a room with me and I’m a 5’2” girl!

Thanks for the video, I punched the “OFF” button when she started talking about how “difficult” it was for the President because of all these things going on. Having calmed down, I went back and watched. EGADS, he’s PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! He’s finding out it’s not all glitz, bling, parties and celebrities. If he’d spend a little time at his desk, and less time campaigning and “kicking ass” he’d probably find he might get some of the things on his desk cleared off. This guy is not qualified to be President of the United States, that’s why the job looks so “difficult” to people like Norah.

Items that Norah O’Donnell IS NOT Moved By Plight of:

1) wounded US soldiers returning from Iraq
2) Bush staffers having nightmares about Katrina
3) the US National Anthem
4) smart black kids succeeding despite being terrorized by gangs
5) any 911 memorial

Sounds like a bunch of eco-wackos who made this drilling screw up possible in the first place. Weepy little darlings...Ohhhh so sad they may be out of a job soon and that has them all teared up. This eco-disaster is getting pinned on these befuddled lawyers and English majors. Oil gushers don't listen to their nonsense or 0bama's socialist nonsense

uh... wait a minute...

Is this because oil's black and 0bama's "black" and therefor he can't be mad at something of the "same color"? Is it that dumb?

What is it about these libs when they discuss anything pertaining to their “One?” They lose all sense of reasoning and their emotional bond with 0bama takes over. It is really, really weird.

Norah O’Donnell is such a dimwit. I have never heard her say anything the least bit insightful. She parrots Obama talking points while putting on her “I can sound like Andrea Mitchell so I must be smart” voice.

“It’s all about how it affects Obama” ping.

(a little armchair psycho babble follows)...you know, the media(as members of the O cult) have so much of their own worth and ego invested in Obama. The oil in their dreams is a symbol of the ‘worth’ they invested in Obama. Their unconscious is now informing them that the ‘worth’ they placed on him is really a ‘slimy’ mess that is poisoning ‘the collective’. It must be very hard for them....lol..boohoo...LOL!!
