I'd like to discuss the press coverage when Obama sings 'Who let the dogs out?'
It's hard to believe that Republicans would get more upset about a Democrat pandering to African American youth than a Republican.

The best part of this election will not been seen on TV or covered by the media. It will be the look on Mitt Romney's face as he gets ready to make the 7th stump speech of the week on a Wednesday early afternoon. The internal suffering of having to divorce himself from all sense and reason and talk about female contraception, soviet threats, evil gays, and whichever wacko idea the tea party comes up with next. There is no less demoralizing feeling in the world than having to run for office, any office, and have to totally deny your true feelings on every important issue.

Why would that be disappointing? It was over quickly, they had some pretty good technique. Embarrassing? This is perfectly acceptable behavior in a Bangkok bathhouse. Embarrassing would be getting caught getting a hand job in the change room of a Target.

better headline:

This stuff is great entertainment. I don't understand why anyone would bother with real housewives when we're provided drama for free on a daily basis through political news. Backstabbing, biatching, lying, cheating, theft, uncomfortable alliances, secret plots... It's all there and there are no reruns.

In fairness to Romney, I think he does. Deep down, I think the man knows how silly all this nonsense is. The sad thing is, he long ago realized that he will never win the White House unless he subverts his true feelings and embraces the derp. There once was a time when this openly bothered him, and on some level it still bothers him. But above all else, Romeny wants the Presidency and it means he will do and say anything to get there.

That's really what makes him so dangerous. All politicians lie to a certain extent. Romney has become a pathological liar. It's the one thing that Gingrich got right about him. You should be very wary of a politician who lies to you without guilt or remorse.

Obama versus Romney is the worst reality show on TV since the Tila Tequila days.

At least Tila would show you her tits making her at least marginally more interesting than Romney.

Like others before me, I have said this more than once.

The media wants a horse race, and damn it all they will project the image of a neck and neck horse race until mid-October, when the polling will more than likely reveal Romney so far behind Obama that the media will let "Razor blade Halloween Candy" stories overshadow the election.

Article is spot on.

Neither party is really enthusiastic about their guy, the actual policy differences are narrow in spite of rhetoric to the contrary, and the outcome is virtually predetermined. Should be a boring election, especially when compared to '08.

2012-05-08 11:40:53 AM
Since elections are a major major media event, the media is invested in making the election as close as possible for as long as possible. Mitts says something stupid it will get glossed over as long as his margin behind is large. Get close to 50/50 or winning? His comments will come out to hurt him. As long as NEWS is a profit business, they get money off of the attention. Closer the race, the higher the attention. This is what is killing our national politics. When the major source of information about candidates is vested in keeping you ignorant of one sides gaffe's to keep the race close you can't get a fair election.
/if you want democracy, the profit motive must come out of news.

It's a pretty douchey and predictable article. But I do agree with one thing he said: "Biden is the best character in the series," I'm especially intrigued to see if Obama takes this opportunity to complete his 'evolution', show some leadership, and come out in favor of marriage equality. I think that would energize his base, swing independents his way, and put him in solid contrast with Romney.

Meanwhile, Obama has turned out to represent continuity with the Bush administration on a range of key issues, from torture to rendition to economic deregulation. Obama is doing things with extralegal drone strikes that would have liberals marching in the streets if they'd been done by Bush.

In other words, Obama versus Bush actually felt like a clash of ideological opposites. But Obama and Romney feels like a contest between two calculating centrists, fighting for the right to serve as figurehead atop a bloated state apparatus that will operate according to the same demented imperial logic irrespective of who wins the White House. George Bush's reign highlighted the enormous power of the individual president to drive policy, which made the elections involving him compelling contests; Obama's first term has highlighted the timeless power of the intractable bureaucracy underneath the president, which is kind of a bummer, when you think about it.


So much this, especially the first paragraph. I understand that Obama was facing an intractable Congress, but so many of his choices were HIS and his alone- the economic cabinet he formed, his Bush-like foreign policy, record number of ICE deportations, etc. It makes it hard to vote for him again. I know I'll get a lot of sh*t now from fellow liberals but why should we settle, really?

Then vote for Jill Stein if you want to vote for an actual liberal and stick to your principles, regardless of outcomes.

More pragmatic liberals will argue though, that voting for Obama is a much more sensible alternative than letting Mitt Romney win.

Obama never said he was liberal. He's always been a center-right Democrat. But he's at least liberal-leaning on social and economic issues, which means liberal ideas are at least part of the discussions leading up to a decision. That can't be said when a Republican is in the White House.
