Exhibit A is the headline that accompanied a recent bombing in Iraq that killed scores of people. Since the US invasion of Iraq, the Obamamedia have used violence as a metric of how badly things were going.
But now that Bush is on the way out and Obama is on the way in:
It's a measure of progress that today's blasts, which killed at least 31 people in Baghdad and more elsewhere, according to the Associated Press, represented the worst day of violence since June.
Yes, believe it or not, bomb blast show how wonderful that world is now that Obama has been elected.
This is lick spittle reporting at it's finest. You can’t make this stuff up folks.
If you thought that the media would try to reclaim the mantle of objectivity, you are fooling yourself. Obama has done no wrong in the past and will do no wrong in the future. I wrote about this in Governing From The Center.
As evidence, exhibit B:
America's allies got the candidate they overwhelmingly preferred, but that doesn't necessarily mean America's relationships with the globe will warm instantly. In fact, history is strewn with rock-star presidents whose first years were terrific disappointments for U.S. allies.But we were told that Obama was the One that the world was waiting for. What do other Presidents have to do with the global adulation he received even before he was elected? His mere presence electrified all of Europe. What could he possibly do to disappoint the world? Newsweek goes on to list a few items that Obama promised and suggest he won’t do as he promised. But these are all within the power of a President whose party controls both houses of Congress. So what is Newsweek trying to tell us?
And then there’s exhibit C. If you remember nothing of the Obama campaign, you remember that he promised 95% of the American people a tax cut. Now we get this APObama headline:
Obama didn't simply promise to cut taxes, he pounded, pounded, pounded the theme that 95% of the American people would get a tax cut.
People want the tax cuts promised during the presidential campaign, but may be willing to wait while President-elect Obama takes on the larger issue of fixing the economy.
Eighty percent say trimming personal tax rates should be a goal when the new president takes office in January, but only 36 percent say the cuts should a very top priority, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. That was less than half the 84 percent who cited improving the economy as a No. 1 goal, and the 80 percent who said creating jobs should be a paramount task.
"I don't think it's going to work in this instance," said Ryan Anderson, 31, a Democrat from Bloomington, Minn., who thinks tax reductions would have little impact on most families' budgets. "That's kind of like shooting a BB gun at a freight train."
Obama promised to cut taxes for working families during the campaign.
The theme is obvious, someone has leaked to the AP that the primary economic promise of the Obama campaign – that 95% of the American people will see their taxes cut – is not going to happen. And the AP dutifully commissions a poll that tells us that that’s all right; “the people” really didn’t want a tax cut.
So the ObamaMedia are preparing the American people for the future. In the future there are two rules. The first rule is that whatever Obama does is right. The second rule is that if he screws up, lies, or fails to deliver refer to rule one.
