On Obama and the silly notion of "overexposure"

In this day and age, with the 24/7 news cycle... any time not filled by the President will get filled by his opponents.


The 24/7 media beast must be fed. The only way to control the message is to make sure that your opponents aren't given a media void to fill.


In this day and age, there is no such thing as Presidential "overexposure".


If we're talking about what Obama said or did today, it means we are not talking about what his opponents want to talk about.


When Obama was on vacation, that's when his opponents controlled the narrative and his numbers dipped.


A quarterback can't score if he's on the sidelines... even Peyton Manning and Tom Brady need the ball in their hands in order to make something happen.

2. But overexposure is real. It means: Obama got more TV face time than RW scumbags wanted.
They especially don't want overexposure of their lies about health payment reform, and about everything else.

5. I especially love Lindsay Graham complaining about Obama's overexposure.
He is on some Sunday talk show almost every weekend and usually is on during the week. He's got a nerve.

3. The danger you don't understand....
If Obama continues to be shown on all the news shows every week, people will see how intelligent he is, and that might make them reconsider being a republican. Would you want your kids to be (gasp) democrats? Oh, the horror!
