Is The HopeChange Honeymoon Over?

By Wyatt Earp | July 2, 2009

Helen ThomasEver since Barack Obama announced his intention to run for president, the mainstream media has been carrying his water and massaging his genitals 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The man – and that shrew wife of his – could do no wrong. After the election, the love-fest continued, even while some of his programs, policies, and brilliant ideas didn’t exactly “succeed.” The next thing you know, a radical Left site like The Huffington Post is getting called upon by Obama during press conferences – an action akin to the POTUS calling on me for a question. The press treated Obama like a god, and it was getting really uncomfortable.

That’s why it is so hysterical when CBS’ Chip Reid and the human muppet Helen Thomas ripped Obama yesterday for his phony Town Hall meeting. To wit:

Phony, that is, in the sense that the White House knows in advance the questions that’ll be asked, which makes the questioners de facto plants of the most transparent administration evah. I have no big problem with The One putting on a pageant — that’s standard presidential stagecraft in a television age — but I do have a problem with the NYT taking care to note the “orchestration” when Bush pulled this while neglecting to mention it this time. It’s in keeping with the media’s narratives about Dubya and Obama, though, the former shifty and stupid and therefore dependent on softballs, the latter “open” and ingenious and no longer required to prove his ability to handle tough questions.

Frankly, with ABC holding infomercials for Obama in prime time, it seems almost petty to get exercised about a phony town hall. (H/THot Air)

Allahpundit is absolutely correct. In the grand scheme of things, this is not a big deal. However, it is noteworthy because some members of the press are tearing down the wall of invincibility and seeing this “open” administration for what it truly is: simply another group of typical politicians. No hope. No change. Just politics as usual.

I still despise Helen Thomas, but I’ll give her credit for ripping Obama as hard as she ripped George W. Bush. Even if it was only for one day.

Oh, and if nothing else, you really should click on this link to see the video of Thomas and Reid grilling that smarmy little bastard Gibbs. The guy just has no clue.

    My God, is that a real picture of Helen Thomas???

    I haven’t watched any TV since 2001.

    Is that thing real?

    While it’s nice to see someone in the MSM asking 0bama’s press guy some hard questions, I don’t put too much stock in it. The MSM would have known what a fraud The Big Zero is if they had done one tenth of the research I did into this guy. Or maybe they did and they still liked what they saw. Who knows with those lowlifes?

    The MSM was complicit in his election, I don’t see any sign they are going to start doing their job, you know, act like journalists instead of shills spewing whatever propaganda the O-bots cook up.

    The sad part is, Gibbs knows EXACTLY what is going on. It is unbelievable to watch how he twists the words back on the reporters. His outright condescension is amazing that he is allowed to continue this daily.

    I cannot believe that the press allows this to continue. I know their bias but there comes a point where personal pride must kick in.

    BH0 needs a good sex scandal to divert attention from his failing policies…

    The media lovefest with Obama was going to end at some point because at the end of the day, they love themselves and their jobs more than him.

    Obama is going to have a mental meltdown when they turn on him.

    Somewhere in Texas, Bush is having a good chuckle. :)

    Helen will end up getting the “evil eye” from the prez. But, if I were him, I’d be careful. He could end up a pillar of salt.

    Kaveman – I think she passed away 20 years ago.

    Ralph – Exactly. It’s a nice story, but nothing will change in the long run.

    Eric T – He is just such a smarmy little bastard. It infuriates me.

    Captain – It is a rare sight, for sure.

    RAPH – Now THAT’s funny!

    Jason – I wonder if he has any interns. Can you get him some cigars?

    Sully – It may not be soon, but I think some of them will definitely turn on him.

    RT – Yes, indeed.

    Admiral – Produce the death certificate?

    MeToo – Just don’t look directly at her.
