    MSM soft treatment of Obama-show of support or soft bigotry of low expectations?

    When one looks at the favorite treatment that Papa Obama gets in the MSM, it seems that the MSM is just supporting him because they, as well, are mostly liberal.

    But in retrospect, when ones considers the approach that most white liberals take when it comes to minorities in the US, affirmative action; lowered expectations etc.

    The question becomes, is the liberal press just showing "true" support for Papa Obama's failed policies or are they showing the liberal's soft bigotry of low expectations that they have for minorities in general? Of course, by keeping the bar low, it will be easier for Papa Obama to "pass the test"

    Some "test"..

    - 2 wars
    - largest recession in 70 years
    - a divided congress
    - soaring unemployment

    Yea...they sure set the bar low for Obama. They even expected him to fix everything in one year

    LOL Congress is solely controlled by the Democrats and HAS BEEN for over 2 years. Obama PROMISED if we just did not read the stimulus bill and passed it unemployment would not go over 8 percent. And he claims we can just spend our way out of the Recession. And you boobs have no problem with it.

    Oh yes, but you see with the MSM we are told that "things could be worse" and that unemployment went up "unexpectedly"

    See, lower the bar and Papa Obama is doing a great job

    It ain't just Obama the MSM goes easy on. Dems/liberals in general don't get the same level of interest others would. Good case in point is how they had no interest in the John Edwards shenanigans during the primaries leading up to the '08 election. The National Enquirer kept trying to tell everyone a scandal was brewing but the MSM virtually ignored them.

    They've become an inconsequential joke to a lot of people these days, but it's not like they haven't earned it IMO.

    Very true

    The MSM use to say Papa Obama was "too big to fail"
    but really the liberals in the MSM and liberal politicians like "Negro Reid"
    meant "too black to fail"

    The biggest failure of the MSM is that they set the bar too low for George Bush. After 9-11 they gave him a free pass to do whatever he wanted to in the name of fighting terrorism. They failed to question his reasons for attacking Iraq, failed to question abandoning Afghanistan, failed to investigate readiness for 9-11, failed to question his budget decisions.

    All of which lead to one of the sorriest presidencies in US history

    Funny how the left has no successes to hang their hat on and they fall back into their old "hate bush" rhetoric

    Too bad for you, it does not work with the US public anymore

    It goes both ways my friend....

    No President in the last 50 years has gotten a free pass from the press like George Bush did after 9-11. No president abused it more
