I think Obama's kid-glove treatment is one of the reasons some journalists, some talk show hosts, and some posters here have to reach into the depths
of this candidates history.
Even comedy shows are playing the game. And those jokes aren't funny unless there is a kernel of truth to them. Did any of you see the SNL skit,
where at the debates, the moderators kept asking Obama if he needed a glass of water, or a pillow? That obviously didn't happen in reality, but it
was a caricature of reality.
He's mostly getting a free ride, with free press.
It's up to others, who see him as a threat to our nation to play out stories that paint him in a negative iight..That's just politics.
After the last Dem debate there was griping that the questions were unfair, or too hard. Well I have news for Hillary, and Obama..they got "Ron
Paul supporters griped about the very same thing, and were labled crybabies.
The term crybaby fits here too. God forbid we talk about issues.
Speaking of issues, this presidential campaign is no different than any other.
The candidates speak in vagueries. They do it on purpose, so there is no accountability later. It's up to the voters, and now the bloggers,
discussion groups to see through what little information we get. To analyze, to ponder, to guess.
This stuff you call Yellow journalism, is par for the course. And is certainly milder than the political journaism of the past.
So It's Obama's turn to get "Ron Paul'd".
YOu should be happy, that means he's the frontrunner for the moment.
