Actually the Videos bring up a larger point. EVERYONE knows about Bushisms, and Palinisms, even giving her credit for ones she never made, so why is it Obama did not get the same treatment as those two by the media?


In my opinion that answer is pretty darn simple. We literally had Bushisms and are having Palinisms poured on us daily. The OP was only able to bring up a handful of mistakes from Obama over the course of 3 years.

When everything you say is kind of stupid, the media starts to latch on to that. When some forum poster has to dig through youtube to find fewer than 10 stupid things from Obama out all the footage we have of him talking, the media is really not going to notice.

Suspect Title in the OP.

I was expecting someone's full uncut video of the Harvard Graduation Ceremony
from the year he graduated.....
WITHOUT him being seen or mentioned (or up on stage under a different name).

Really? LOL I figured it was because before the guy even took office the media was saying he gave them tingles up and down their legs.The only reason that Bushisms and Palinism are so well known is the media PUSHED them on you. Think about Biden, the man is known far and wide for sticking his foot in his mouth and yet the media has been strangely quiet about him for the most part since he became VP.

As I think about it how many "Bushisms" are there exactly to be found in his 8 years in office in comparison to obamas 3 years?

Well, it turns out you figured wrong. Chris Mathews is just one guy, he is not "the media." That seems to be just one thing you figured wrong.

Just a few examples of Others in the media telling people to lay off making fun of or criticizing Obama. Heck in one of those he tells people to not say anything about his wife... but he had no problem saying stuff about Nancy Reagen.

In all honesty I disliked Bush as well. Of course that why I don't like Obama, he is Bushes 3rd term. It strikes me as odd that anyone would want to defend this guy.

WEll I thought the vids were funny. Reminds me of the one where Obama tells everyone about his 'muslim faith' and the interviewer has to remind Obama that he is a Christian... which he nearly chokes on as he corrects himself. The guy is a toad masquerading as a hero/prince.

This one is quite curious. The police arrested a man in his own home for breaking in. Obama called that "acting stupidly."

And...?

Was it genius to arrest a guy for breaking into his own house? How smart does a cop have to be to look at the address on his license or maybe some pictures on the walls?

You know I think your right in a sense. I do think he uses it to keep his story straight (to be fair like most other folks in or running for office) however I think the reason people think he is so bright has more to do with the fact that the media tends to ignore his mess ups and give him more passes on his own obamaisms, whereas with those further on the right they will zoom in on them and act as if its a glaring indictment on there intelligence. I cannot imagine what the the media would have aid about Palin if she had said we have 57 states in America. Heck SNL made up stuff in their skits about her saying things, and the Media reported it as if she actually said it and not Tina Fey.
A good example of this Democrat love in the media is the treatment of the parties in both the movies and on television. HBO I think it was, cancelled there series on the Kennedys because it did not show JFK in the best light, however Hollywood has had no problem showing Nixon and Bush as evil and stupid men. The TV Show from the 80's Family Ties shows the folks on the left as being kind and generous meanwhile the only Republican on the Show is played by Michael J Fox is shown as a over achieving prick.
Can anyone at all show me a representation of a Republican/Conservative in modern media other than Lincoln in a good light? Yet Conservatives in America are still the Majority. www.gallup.com...
Now looking at those numbers and seeing how Conservatives are treated in the media via news/movies/television etc I don't think one needs to make a huge leap of faith to see that maybe, just maybe Obama has gotten more than his share of free passes.
I think there has been a pretty decent amount of "Predictive Programming" going on in this Country.

You cannot become a distinguised member of The Harvard Law Review unless you are a student of the school in question.

BTW, to the op,

To start out this thread with a vid of Obama at Westiminster totally disproves, shoots down and automatically makes this claim baseless and nothing more then a snide, underhanded attack against our POTUS.

So, you Birther's have now branched off to form the Schoolers?

Get real!
