For Obama, Media Can’t Wait, Can’t Criticize

December 17, 2008

Even before he was President of the United States and sitting behind the historic desk in the Oval Office: the media could not wait for Barack Obama to become President —  declaring him an historic man of greatness.

Time Magazine made Barack Obama its “Person of the Year” because he won the election over a very lame John McCain-Sarah Palin team.  And the Obama- Biden election had the help and support of a fawning and completely biased media: the same crowd of groupies now telling us about Obama’s “greatness.”

It’s time to get real, gang.   Obama is no Lincoln, and any man so proudly trying to be someone else raises serious questions.

The media has been so pro-Obama for so long we at Peace and Freedom no longer trust and believe half the fawning articles about the President-elect.  We want to see some critical analysis.

Media has an obligation to dissect.  Coronations and saintood should be bestowed upon monarchs and great people long dead.

Barack Obama is a man of great promise, especially as America faces its toughest economic challenges in decades and a myriad of foreign policy choices lurk.

But the media talks less about promise and more about comparisons to Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt.

We say: too soon.  Hold your horses.  Hope for the best but hope is still only a hope; and one step away from a prayer.
