Obama Has No one to Blame But the Lamestream Media

Forget Fox News, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.

Barack Obama needs to blame the mainstream media for his sinking popularity. In the age of citizen journalism and instantaneous, global communication he should have realized that all of  the msm’s high-flying exaltation would come back to bite him in the you-know-where. Mr. ‘I won’ never had the intellectual or Machiavellian chops to rise to the level of the media’s glorification.

Playing at fascism, the propagandists forgot they needed a Mussolini to execute the plan after the victory. If Obama thinks his conservative opponents treat  him “like a dog ” it’s only because they’re following the lead of the growing number of American people who realize they’ve been suckered.  The near canonization of Saint Barack  by MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times and magazines like The New Yorker before the ’08 election  is now giving way to reality, and it’s not pretty.

If the sale of Obama paraphernalia is any indication of  the president’s current status, the future does not look hopeful. From the Washington Post:

The change in Obama’s political fortunes led Tini Cherkaoui, manager of Discount Souvenirs and Novelties in the District, to alter her inventory. The merchandise touting hope and “Change We Can Believe” has been replaced by items taunting those themes.

“It used to be that anything Obama — it was just hot,” she said, as a group of tourists wearing anti-Obama T-shirts milled around on the sidewalk. “Now, they’re just against Obama.”

How times change.

Barely two years ago, a month before the ’08 election,  The New Yorker Magazine published an opinion piece by the editorial staff lauding Obama’s “tropism of unity” while condemning John McCain for his “willingness to lie and to pander.” Then, in adulation they concluded the tribute with these words:

The election of Obama—a man of mixed ethnicity, at once comfortable in the world and utterly representative of twenty-first century America—would, at a stroke, reverse our country’s image abroad and refresh its spirit at home. His ascendance to the Presidency would be a symbolic culmination of the civil- and voting-rights acts of the nineteen-sixties and the century-long struggles for equality that preceded them. It could not help but say something encouraging, even exhilarating, about the country, about its dedication to tolerance and inclusiveness, about its fidelity, after all, to the values it proclaims in its textbooks. At a moment of economic calamity, international perplexity, political failure, and battered morale, America needs both uplift and realism, both change and steadiness. It needs a leader temperamentally, intellectually, and emotionally attuned to the complexities of our troubled globe. That leader’s name is Barack Obama.

This over-the-top hype at a time when the nation’s financial bottom was falling out may have played to the desperate masses in the short term, enough to put Obama in the White House, but it’s backfiring now.  The non-vetting, obedient pawns like Katie Couric, Andrea Mitchell and the rest of the paid lemmings are not only complicit in the country’s downfall but in their master’s as well –  how’s that for irony.
