Media Back to Work Soon

The media has been on vacation with Obama, actually since the "invention" of Obama. The recent hard hitting "news" is that Obama returned to the gym the other day, where we are told he has been every day except one.

Based on those pictures I saw at the beach, I hope he's working on his pecs. My God, slap a B-cup bra on that man to keep those things from sagging. Didn't anybody tell him that 40 is supposed to be the new 30?

Now of course our media tried to convince us that Obama is a hunk. Right…chicken legs and all. Then they got the liberals outraged that pictures were taken of Obama on the beach, inquiring how photographers were able to get that close.

They got that close, because Obama allowed them get that close. This was all orchestrated, just like Obama never being seen smoking. Up to this point Obama has enjoyed a media lovefest, rivaling the best Roman orgies.

But as my granny told me, "The same thing that can make you can break you". And this same media that has worshipped at the Altar of ObamaNation is now becoming a bother. It has become so ridiculous that we are being told that Obama was out with his kids, and they had rocky-road ice cream. And why is this news?

You want to know why TV stars and rock stars end up in rehab? The media. Many can't handle the gap between what they know about themselves and what they read or hear on a daily basis. It is difficult to live up to the reputation that the media can create for you. And they created Obama the rock star.

But Obama is a rock star with no musical talent. Heck he doesn't even appear to play "air guitar". He's a baller, but he can't make the NBA, and he would get dusted if he tried to play street ball at Rucker. He wants us all to learn Spanish, but he doesn't speak a 2nd language. He can't sing, he can't dance.  He just talks! And uh, uh, not that well.

You see, there is the persona of Obama, the media-created Messiah archetype, sent to cure all the ills of a sick America. Then there is the reality, which is Obama is really the village idiot, whose only real talent is his ability to move his mouth better than a $1500 an hour call girl.

My point? I think that Obama might become the fourth kid from "Diff'rent Strokes" in his tenure as POTUS. "What chu talkin' bout Willis?"

The media put the "anal" in analyze, and as I said earlier the president-elect doesn't like his daily cavity check. He apparently wasn't as prepared for rock star status as he thought he was. And I am happy to say that it won't get any better, because "You're not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy".

The world is watching. Yes, even for things as mundane as taking your kids to get an ice cream is captured on film and analyzed. The way he walks, how long he was there, how the kids acted, and so on. Cameras are always running and microphones hot, as this the article suggests:

And even though the pool photographers remained out of sight and without an image of these private moments, Obama seems to be tiring of the journalists who have followed him daily since the campaign.

"OK, guys, come on," Obama said last Sunday, looking toward photographers clicking away as he warmed up before a round of golf. "How many shots do you need?"

It's been a progression. And Obama's frustration shows in waves.

On Halloween, Obama grew testy with a Polish media crew as he took his daughter Sasha to a party at his campaign treasurer Marty Nesbitt's Chicago home.

"All right guys. That's enough. You've got a shot. Leave us alone. Come on guys. Get back on the bus," Obama said before breaking into a trot with Sasha still holding his hand.

And those are the small problems that Obama will deal with. All those inane policies won't just be in the myopia of Illinois, or in some venue full of ObamaBots. They will be exposed to the scrutiny of the world. And not everyone is an ObamaTron, hypnotized by Obama's doubletalk.

And guys like Obama have a difficult time dealing with people who don't buy into their fluff. They need to sell the fluff, like a heroin addict needs a fix. People like Obama have an intense need to convince everybody that they are "good guys".

They find criticism particularly harsh, and want to correct things, fix things quickly. This is why they don't make good leaders. They can't follow their true heart, as their "leadership" has been built on consensus, and they have no real core. So they over-react. And the real media shows up, looking for the blue dress.

You see, the media can't keep reporting about Obama and his kids having ice cream or getting back in the gym, and sell papers. As liberal as the mainstream media is, they realize that even they will lose their zombies if they don't throw them some raw meat every now and then. Zombies gotta eat. Problem: No Republicans to butcher.

I say, let's wait and see how much grey hair he has and let's do a wrinkle count after two years, when the stress of running this great country has set in. We will see how the media is treating him, when Black starts to crack, and his policies have the country in turmoil. Eventually the media will have to end vacation and get back to work.  Cause telling us about flavors of ice cream for four years won't sell papers!

That's my rant!

I'm surprised that the media did not doctor the photo to make Obama have a nicer physique. He sags more than my 78 year old mother!

The Black Sphere said...

I agree on BOTH points! I'm not bragging, but I'm 45, and I look tons better than that guy, and still have my high school six-pack. The girly-man! And people have the nerve to say that I am jealous of this fraud!

Ty Hogan December 31

Ty went to the gym yesterday and has already been on the tread mill this morning is that news

He certainly has fallen right in with the "celebrity lifestyle"....not too shabby for a guy who needed a sweetheart loan to get into his house in Chicago, huh?! Wonder if it has even dawned on him that he will be the leader of the Free World?? Glad to know he's been at the gym every day except one..wonder if that was Sunday and he missed the gym to go to church...ha.
And Kevin, I'm with you - at 44, I'll take my shirt off and compare to POTUS-2-B any day of the week. He better add a physical fitness trainer to his cabinet.
Everything about the guy is empty and it is only getting more and more apparent. We'll see how ol Abraham Obama will do once the real heat is on. He's already got his first protesters buggin' him in Hawaii. Just wait until that is day after day. He's going to learn not everyone is in a love affair with him.

Haha, yeah, Obama's beach photos were all over the internet this past week.

I wonder how long his free ride will last.

Surely once he gets into office and the economy doesn't change questions have to be asked.

Next time my mom humiliates me about my pecks I can now compare them, in high def no less, to Obama and counter that they're presidental. I have Rocky Road all the time (I may change that now), where's my headline?

I used to argue with my ex-wife (hence why she's the ex-wife) why do we need to know what Jennifer Alison, Brad Pitt, Britney, or Madonna is wearing, eating, doing, ect. Who FREAKING CARES!!! My life isn't going to be any better or worse and frankly I find the whole obession mentally distrubing. Well, we're divorced. Unfortunately with Obama, we're still stuck with this for four years. Perhaps like Fouste, he'll realized the deal he's made with the devil isn't worth it after all.

Just wait to ObamaPalooza is over as the mainstream media rags need to "feed the engine". Like I said, "news" about ice cream won't sell papers, but scandals will. My bet is we will have PLENTY of them!

well, I don't have a sixpack anymore at 48, now I have the whole CASE.. :-)

but Kevin, don't forget there's another aspect to this besides what you've so accurately psychoanalyzed.. Obama is a committed, believing LEFTIST, all the way to communist if you ask me.. he's not going to be just overwhelmed, he's going to be DOING stuff while overwhelmed, and the stuff he does, deliberately, purposefully, will come nearer to destroying this nation than anything I've read or heard of.. and I read a LOT of history..

So while he bumbles and fumbles the business of being presidential, he's also undermining the framework like a termite in summertime..

dangerous times...

ah yes the Media..that gave Ocrapbama his spotlight..the tabloids...the magazines..that had his face plastered all over their front page..the TV talks shows ..Oprahbama, the View...they all put him upon his 'pedestal' they do with all of HOLLYWOOD's finest...but I will sit back,get my popcorn & kami's ready for the Show that is unfortunately about to begin oh too soon. The very people that have helped to CREATE this Slithering beast, will also become the cause of his demise. It won't take long for the 'others' to see the horrific mistake they made on Election Day. And when 'his' pedestal starts crumbling..and he comes crashing down, he will take with him...our great Nation.

Didn't Presidents have dignity once upon a time? I guess you can thank the media for that. It's amazing what some pictures can do for your self-image. It's looking like a train wreck, and he's not even in office yet. This is going to be interesting.
