Chummer45: Lord_Baull: Nadie_AZ: Ned Stark: A bombing campaign is, unfortunately, not news.

I ... can't really argue with you.


After all, there was no mention of a missing white girl in his speech.

Or a missing airliner that - after 6 months we can now confirm - is still missing.

Football IS more important.  We will get the important parts later on the news.  Presidential speeches aren't often time sensitive.  That is one of the great things about the president's weekly video address.  It is pre recorded and happens the same time each Sunday.  I can make a point to watch it live or record it for later.  It is usually just a repeat of things he mentioned earlier in the week though.

but the whitehouse really really needs to bring in a better video editor or director.  Isn't he friends with Spielberg or someone?  Get a little pro-bono work here or something.  They generally run with a fairly wide chest up shot, but once in a while they jump-cut to a close up on his face with no transition at all.  You are sitting there listening to a calm explanation of events at the border, or a recent development in Gaza and

BAM GIANT OBAMA ALL UP IN YOUR FACE!!!


Then we are back to regular presidential proportions.  they do it two or three times per address for emphasis.  Sometimes I zone out on what he is saying trying to predict the giant Obama attack. Maybe they could bring in a film school grad student?

barneyfifesbullet: Someone said that football isn't more important that hearing from the bullshiat-in-chief?

Turn in your American card. You don't need it anymore.


It's only preseason.

Rixel: Kind of wish that the Whitehouse Press Secretary now bans their reporters from briefings.


"Don't feel like carrying the president's address?   Then we won't burden you with any news from The White House.  Go pay Reuters."


That did happen a while back in his first term....and the guy they allowed to ask the first question was from the Huffington Post and his question was about what kind of dog the Obamas were going to pick.

This is just what the politicians have been hoping for for years now.  "I was thinking about starting a war but hesitated because I thought y'all might think it's a bad idea.  Then I noticed everyone's too busy watching reality stars sleep with each other and call each other biatches and hos, so I figured, hey, why the hell not?"

nocturnal001: Many of you are missing the point. Ideally we want to "force" as many people as possible to watch the damn thing. Networks used to think it was a patriotic duty to get more eyeballs on what our top leader is saying.

I guess the "Ow my balls" marathon is just too attractive these days.

StrikitRich: First line in the article:  With short notice to the TV networks,....

Guess the President was in too much of a hurry to get to Martha's Vineyard to give longer notice?

MMm, you missed out on some obvious additions there. No mention of Michelle Obama's obsession or fancy lettuce?
