Yet the coverage, on every channel, consisted of look how cool this dude is...he can snatch an f-ing fly out of the air. It's weird. Obama's on tv way too much and he has some weird effect on folks. It's nauseating.
    I'm telling ya, he's the Anti-Christ!

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I see.

    You're saying that every major news outlet except one refused to cover anything except positive puff-peice softball news stories about GW Bush, and you saw an immense threat the stability of the republic because the news coverage was totally favorable, completely unbalanced, and disgustingly enthusiastic about the empty promises of hope and change GW Bush offered the nation.

    You see, if that's not what you're saying, you didn't go through with Bush what Americans are now facing with your Messiah.

    Seriously? You went through it with Bush? The media did not fawn over Bush. Even Bush supporters did not fawn over Bush for the most part. Even Clinton who was loved by many did not get to be the media darling. He was never considered America's Sweetheart.

    Oh, so you're against a politician going on television for a special and airing their opinion or their plan for a certain issue. Got it.

    Well, badgers do spend most of their time with their heads buried underground.


    Yes.

    That's called propaganda in honest countries.
    No, half-truths, lies, and spin are propaganda. Talking openly about your plan is not.

    See also the importance of an independent media as opposed to a fawning biased advocacy media.
    How is giving someone air time to increase your revenue fawning? I think you may need a tin foil hat.

    People that want air time should pay for it, like every good capitalist. Damn socialists think everything should be free, and aren't mature enough to understand that everything has a price.
    So I'm a socialist because I want to take money out of politics? I guess that means you are pro-corporate funding of campaigns? Again, using "ists" or "isms" against people you disagree with really discredits you.

    You do know that politicians are in large part beholden to those who fund their campaigns, since air time is so ridiculously expensive, right? Guess who funds their campaigns? Corporations. I'd rather get the money out of politics so that representatives actually, you know, represent the people that elected them instead of the companies that funded them. It's a novel concept, I know.

    Well I wouldn't go that far. But it is definitely weird. I mean really; who hasn't killed a fly?? Anyone? Why in the world was it played on every channel - including Fox - as an impressive feat; swoon worthy? I just flat out don't get it. I think we're getting dumber as a people.

    So, in other words, when you said you flaming libs "went through it with Bush", you didn't really go "through it", that was just one of the usual liberal "exagerations" that the rest of us call a "lie" because we can't spell the big words too good.

    It's how socialism gains control of a people and prepares them for serfdom.

    For the same reason that clearing brush somehow made Bush more manly and rugged? I don't get why this bothers you so much. It is typical nonsense-turned-story that we see on cable news all the time.
