Media and Obama

I imagine the media is about as dizzy as a kid who spins around a lamppost 20 times and then tries to run a hundred yards. Why? Well because of all the spinning they are doing.

I have been blown away to watch the coverage of the media as Obama tries to sell the stimulus package. When he warns of dire consequences he is being “honest” and “real” with the American people. When Bush told people the consequences of their or doing or not doing something (terrorism, economy) he was leading by “fear.”

I can’t wait till I have kids and they try this kind of Crap. “Hey Jonny do not play in traffic.” “Dad your just trying to parent me by fear.” Fear is not always a bad thing. In fact we live in a world in which there is plenty to be fearful of (not everything so don’t freak out) but fear can often keep us safe and help us understand the magnitude of a situation.

Please media lets do better. And Obama it is not enough to say on the news last night lets stop being partisan and serve the American people who we represent and then in the VERY next sentence say the other side dead ideas that do not work.

For all of you who are married try that level of condescension in your next marital tiff.
