How Obama Lost The Press And Won The Olympics

BARACK Obama – link these three strories on Obama in Chicago and the need to be the Great I:

“The president’s problem isn’t that he is too visible; it’s the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches. They are heavily salted with the words ‘I’ and ‘my.’ (He used the former 11 times in the first few paragraphs of his address to the U.N. last week.) Obama is a historic figure, but that is the beginning, not the end, of the story” – Newsweek, via Athouse

Wot, No Obama?
