President Obama’s abysmal performance was a shocking revelation to many who saw it. Why were they surprised? The Barack Obama the media have nurtured, promoted and protected isn’t the real one.
From Chris Matthews to Bill Maher to Andrew Sullivan, left-wing pundits and media sycophants who’ve promoted Obama’s political career were frantic after Wednesday’s debate.
“What was he doing?” shouted a furious Matthews.
“A disaster,” said Sullivan.
“Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter!” tweeted Maher, understandably miffed since he’s given more than $1 million to get Obama re-elected.
But their anger is misplaced. After all, they stage-managed Obama’s career for him, refusing to ask tough questions, not looking into his past, and, in general, giving him a pass that wouldn’t be given to anyone else.
These and others are the same media folks who slobbered over Obama but never fully vetted him in 2008 — and who have for four years since refused to cover him honestly.
