NBC and CBS Hope Pontiff's Popularity Rubs Off On Obama
Newsbusters.org ^ | March 27, 2014 | Kyle Drennan

During coverage of President's Obama meeting with Pope Francis on Thursday, both NBC's Today and CBS This Morning hoped the papal visit would boost the commander-in-chief's sinking poll numbers. Today co-host Matt Lauer wondered: "The Pope, enormously popular....Is there something in just rubbing elbows with the Pope for President Obama?" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd observed: "I think that the President, particularly right now where his own approval ratings are not so hot, just being seen with the Pope, particularly in some places where there are a lot of Catholic voters in the United States, it's not gonna hurt. So, yes, I think the White House sees this as a potential political up side."

Can NBC actually broadcast “journalists” rubbing one out for Obama right on camera?

These dorks really believe O’s favorables are based not on his policy and management, but the people he is seen with. You know why? Because they are so superficial that is how they see their own popularity.

So deep

Hopefully the Pope’s advisers have told him that Obama not only favors late term abortions at taxpayer expense—otherwise known as “medical care”—but that he favors killing babies after they have been born. He voted for that three times as a state senator. And the hospital owned by his Black Muslim “church” in Chicago had a habit of throwing live-born babies out into the roof, where they would broil to death in the heat of the sun.

The stench of rotting aborted humans clings to Obama wherever he goes. They will be burning a lot of incense in the Vatican after he leaves.

Hussein didn’t even address the Pope properly from what I’ve read. He just called him ‘sir’.

If he gets to close, Obama may burst into flames.

Yeah ... One of 'em is Pope Francis ... t'other? Dunno ... not much up on RC uniform recognition. But seriously ... they both have this "No, Barry ... we're not laughing with you. We're laughing AT you" look. Sort of like people watching monkeys caper about at the zoo.

NOBODY has any respect for that buffoon ... and it's pretty bad when even the Pope can't manage to pretend respect.

It seems like never. In the mornings, the spouse has the agitprop on. Local then national. When the national one runs, I generally say something along the lines of all hail the Kenyan during the open.

The MSM obviously sees Pope Francis as a celebrity and not as the leader of the RC Church, and a symbol of Christianity.

Obama may as well have gone to see Kim Kardashian as far as they are concerned.
