If Bush Had Done It

Anybody who says the U.S. media isn't biased in favor of Democrats is seriously demented. Every time President George W. Bush mispronounced a single syllable or made the slightest mistake the press went into a frenzy and late night talk shows showed no mercy. Apparently the press thinks President Obama can do no wrong. Any mention of a misstep is just that...a mention; then, you won't see it mentioned again.

Do you think I'm wrong? How about an example? On March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, President Obama was having a party to celebrate the day and had invited the Irish Prime Minister. During the opening of the party President Obama began to read the Irish Prime Minister's speech from the teleprompter and went so far as to thank himself for the invitation to the party. First, who brings a teleprompter to a party? Second, how can he go that far into someone else's speech without recognizing it isn't his? Third, how come the media didn't start calling him an idiot like they would have if it had been Bush? Easy, they're biased.

Another example? Do you remember when President Obama became the first sitting U.S. President to appear on a late night talk show - The Tonight Show with Jay Leno? Do you remember how President Obama made a remark about Special Olympics? Did the media go after Obama as they would have Bush? Of course not. You know Bush would have been compared to every evil figure throughout history...Hitler, Stalin, Dr. Mengele and Fu Manchu.

How about the latest gaff by the Obama administration? The press was supposed to be on a conference call today with officials traveling with President Obama in London at the G20 meeting. When they made the call they were connected with a phone sex line. If President Bush's people had made that mistake he'd be the anti-christ.

What does all this mean? It means you can't trust the media to provide a truthful, unbiased account of anything President Obama does. And, the reasons are simple. Media members are apparently liberals, socialists, marxists, and communists who don't mind working in the propaganda department.
