'if he fails or fumbles...make or break trip to europe....one small mistake on the world stage'
Edited on Sat Jul-19-08 04:05 PM by spanone
this horseshit from the media pisses me off. it's not a fucking make or break trip.

cnn reporting that this trip is to refute the perception that obama is weak on foreign policy...BULLSHIT

ranting on the obama media coverage

1. I guess they missed the video of him sinking a three pointer from downtown
he shoots he scores. Obama 1, McSame 0

8. NightWatcher, it was a beautiful shot,
but for a basketball ignoramus, what makes it a three pointer?

Just curious.

2. They are so hoping he screws up; recall McSame when he confused
Sunni and Shia. He never got this level of scrutiny. So Obama just needs to keep doing what he's doing, claim it's a fact-finding mission and an introduction. Works for me.

4. Maybe that's why all three Network anchors are there with him...
to make sure there aren't too many cheering crowd shots unless there's a whopping dose of
"did he blink once too often in the sunlight?"
"was the Prime Minister's tie color an intentional snub and does this spell trouble for his campaign"?

6. Of course they're going to try that. But don't worry.
He'll be fine. As soon as he shows up, people listen to him and like him.

He's got the rare quality that politicians would sell their moms for -- real charisma.

He'll be okay. :hi:

10. It seems to me that Obama is not a "gaffe prone" politician.
I don't know why the media continues to harp on it.

13. What else do they have to make a nickel?
Nothing.

So, they become writers of fiction.
