May God Have Mercy on My Which I Favorably Cite Helen Thomas

Seems that Helen Thomas...the truly execrable, self-righteous old preener who sleeps/sits in the front row of the White House Press a little tired of the "stage managing" that the Obama White House is conducting/colluding with the Press Corps.

Candy Crowly of CNN was talking the other day about some of the policy battles ongoing in DC, and without a hint of irony, noted that the President's personal approval rating appears to be unaffected by the fray. Could it be that the collective failure of the press to hold the President accountable for what he says (CNN included) could have ANYTHING to do with his continuing popularity?

Wow, is the press corp finally starting to wake up?

Maybe in the movie version, Tom Cruise can play the part of Helen Thomas. He did a pretty good job as von Stauffenberg in the original.

Welcome to the Matrix Helen.

Obama thinks you're stupid-
he thinks everyone is as stupid as the people that voted for him.

He makes the loosest, most general statements possible, to attempt to imply that Bush is responsible for all the rampant spending because it started under him.

He lies and changes his story at-will on everything from his cabinet's ethics to whether or not he ever met with Blago to discuss his senate seat, meanwhile the press is occupied with stories on his puppy vetting process and how Barack likes to play basketball.

And Obama could care less if you catch him lying or flip-flopping too, he just changes the subject and moves right-on-along.

Obama wants the state to be your mother and father- and it's his right to lie to you if he wishes... just like your parents when you were five.

Government will be one you come to for money, ask permission when you want to think or speak, and who handles all your finances for you since of course you can't be trusted.

This was an awesome piece of political theater. Yes--the White House thinks we are so, so stu-pid.
