FlashHarry: if by "cheerleading," submittroll, you mean "dragging him through the mud for months on reverend wright, tony rezko, madrassas, and bill ayers," then, yes, that's interesting.


jesus, you people have short memories. during the primaries, obama was raked over the coals. it was only during the general that mccain got the worse of the coverage - primarily because he ran a terrible campaign.

this republican crybaby shiat has just got to end, fellas. seriously.


Guess you didn't read the article:

FTA: "But will Obama be a great one? Even a good one?

The Americans who are comparing him to those remarkable predecessors are putting a lot of faith in a man they barely know."

FlashHarry: this republican crybaby shiat has just got to end, fellas. seriously.

Neverrrrr!!

I heard a guy actually say the other night that Obama was chosen because his presidency would be such an epic fail that it would ensure there wouldn't be another black nominee for a very long time. If anything, having Obama as President has made it easier to spot the 'undercover' racists in my circle.

/finds the whining quite entertaining
//whining about the whining even more so

The Name: Subby, I'm not sure what you and your party are trying to accomplish by all this whining, but the rest of us can put up with it no matter how long you're willing to dish it out. It's not like it's going to win you any elections.

Yes, subby, keep whining. It's so manly. It wis tons of votes, too.

Obdicut: Oh, I didn't think anyone thought lemmings actually committed mass suicide anymore.

I think he was trying to play off of the "Fark IndependentTM" thing, but it doesn't really work because "Independent" is a neutral or positive, and lemming, if he meant it the way you think, is a negative.


Based on DIA's history of posting as a Fark IndependentTM, I'm going to stick with my guess.

By the way, I have a sneaking feeling Obama is kind of boring, and that's pissing the MSM off. After you get past the whole "first black!!!!" thing, he's a slightly dry policy wonk who doesn't really do a lot that's really newsworthy.

I suspect that you're right, which will drive the right-wing, AM radio types insane. You could always count on Bill Clinton to do something to keep the pissed off IndependentsTM in. But I'm not sure how long Limbaugh is going to be able to keep 'em tuning in without going totally over the line with the racism.

Moreso than usual, I mean.

and after we nationalize and cancel our currency, we can give the ME, Europe and China the middle finger and explain we wuz owed. After all, how many times have we been burned by those chumps nationalizing our assets in their country after we get them up to speed? Japan and Europe arethe biggest gravy trainers of them all. We defeated them in war and they ended up ahead of us because they adopted quality standards while we stuck with Madison Avenue blowing smoke up people's butts. Thinking car industry.

Obdicut: Lemmings are pretty cool. Great swimmers. Tough little bastards too.

Who are you comparing them to?


Good swimmers?! Tough?! Yeah right, they have the toughness of a marshmallow. Mine always die if they even touch the water. They don't like the lava either. Tough? Pffft, pretty much if they touch anything other than the ground they die. I guess they can fall pretty fall without splattering... still pretty weak though.

Here in the San Francisco Bay area the MSM hardly mentioned Obama's racist preacher, terrorist buddy, or slimy corrupt fund raiser. There was no raking over the coals. Not even a proper look into Obama's ties to these people. They covered his backside as best they could so they could elect the candidate they chose.

I learned more about Joe the Plumber in less than a week than I did about Obama the entire election.

so i take it you never watch cnn, msnbc, abc, fox, nbc, cbs or read the la times, the ny times, the wa po, the chicago tribune or usa today. or visit drudge, cnn.com, reuters or any other news sites.

got it.


Please show the CNN, NYT, LAT and MSNBC links on the racist preacher, terrorist buddy, or slimy corrupt fund raiser. Perhaps I missed them. Or were you just listing all the news orgs you could think of off the top of your head?

Seriously, I don't know what the big deal is with Obama, he was just elected cause he's black. If he were white, he'd be another senator from illinois who no one cares about.

Next thing you know, they'll want to be in charge of the UN.

I wish these headlines would stop. The coverage was basically even throughout

CNN: No bias ether way at all
MSNBC: Left bias, but mostly fair. they called obama out on shiat too
FOX: Complete bullshiat bias. Would NEVER say mccain made a mistake EVER(PALIN PALIN PALIN). Repeatedly then and even to this day make allegations that Obama is a farkin terrorist because he knew that dude. Good god who cares, arent there enough crooks in Washington that are flying under the radar and doing more damage? How about the terrorists who bomb and burn Abortion Centers....?



The headlines are so unoriginal and lame. Every time they get on here though.........

I'm so embarrassed that conservatism has turned into a bunch of retards pointing fingers w/o judgement. They used to at least respect the other side back in the day, right?

I read Obama's books, his policy statements, news articles about him, both from the "left" (e.g. Daily Kos, AirAmerica), the extreme right (e,g, Fox) and the center.

I know exactly what he has done and what he claims to want to do.

I was just as scrupulous in studying McCain's record.

I knew them both. I voted for Obama because he was the better candidate and had the better plan.

If the Republican party faithful don't like that, they are free to run a more qualified candidate next time.

zekebullseye: The media is after two things: To sell advertising and to make money. To that end they will do anything and say anything that will attract attention. To attribute to them any other motivation, such as fair reporting and responsibility to the public is giving them more credit than they're due. The election is over. They'll start criticizing Obama whenever it becomes convenient and/or profitable to do so.

Obama's associations with Wright, Rezko, Ayers, the New Party, etc is legit.

Palin's inability to mention the name of a newspaper and dedicating 24/7 coverage of this, is not newsworthy.


If by legit, you mean that he actually knows these guys or is somehow strenously associated with them, then I suppose you're technically right.

However, if you mean that his associations with any of these people or parties are some how a reflection of his ability to govern and are anything other than baseless smears, then you fail, horribly.

And as far as Palin, I have much better reasons to hate her then her intellectual ability. Perhaps her far greater lack of experience than Obama. And what little bit of experience she did have is marked by mismanagment, hypocrisy, and cronyism.
