"Obama Fatigue" now being used on MSNBC.
The other day on David Gregory they kept saying Obama was "over-achieving" in polls in some states. What the hell does "over-achieving" mean, winning? Why the negative spin? This morning I'm hearing about "Obama Fatigue" polls. :mad:

2. They are all jealous. Green with envy.
I really think that's what it boils down to.

3. MSM will spend
several hours a day talking about how people are sick of hearing the media talk about Barack Obama. :eyes:

"over-achieving" is just another way of suggesting "uppity." Obama is out performing expectations. Can't have that.

7. Wishful thinking on the part of the media.
They are trying everything they can, hoping something will stick.

8. that's so easy: overachieving means he's doing better than the media WANTS him to do.
they are skeered that he'll continue to BEAT their boy's ass.

they can't believe Obama's actually doing as well as he is, and they can't STAND it.

and gregory has certainly reached his peter principle level, hasn't he?

they get more obvious by the day, don't they?

that one is particularly egregious, though.

9. I would like to see...
any of the cable news networks do a poll on CABLE NEWS FATIQUE! I'm sure it would be at 100%. I've had it for months.
