I don't think so. Especially when it starts hitting the wallets.

Sure they do. They'll just continue to blame Bush until things start to improve...and they'll have the media right behind them supporting the 'blame Bush' philosophy the whole way. This administration AND congress are both going to get a pass in the media and will not be held accountable for failed policies. The 'blame Bush' card is going to be played more than the race card...but I'm sure it'll be close.

They'll blame Bush for what doesn't work, and claim credit for Bush's continued policies that do work. They get to cherry pick what they want to.

Want proof? Look to Iraq. They were for it, then against it, and they are slowly edging back towards being for it (now that the surge is working and a possible withdrawal is on the horizon). Guarantee they spin it 100% as a Democratic victory.

It's important for people to stay vigilant and keep pointing this hypocrisy out...there will be mid-term election in less than 2 years...

God forbid people get excited about politics?

People are excited about the presidency for the first time in a long time.

It's out of our hands; let's just see what happens.

I don't think anyone is against being excited. That's great, and all. I think what people are concerned with is the hypocracy in the media. I am more concerned with the biased media in our country then the politicians themselves.

The media creates the images we see.

Creating the image is only 2/3rds the problem though. The other 1/3rd comes from our acceptance of those images...and there are a lot of blind people who are willing to be told what to see...because it's easier to do what you're told to do...than to think about the actual solution to the problems that face us.

I think its a good thing that he has people excited.
So many young kids watch news for the first time now or take a interest in politics. These are the people that are gonna run your kids country or even your's.

The biggest thing is that other country's have a positive view of obama also. For the longest time Bush got it worse
overseas than he did here.


And only some media love obama. Listen to Limbaugh or Fox News. We should love him he is our President and has done nothing yet but good for the country. Im not saying he cant be the worst President even. Hopefully for all of us, He is the Best President Ever. People need to go into this new administration hoping for the best. Instead of Crying about who is gonna get credit for what.
The way we are viewed around the world needs to change and obama is already helping this massivly.

Who gives a damn about how we are viewed around the world...there are countries around the world who are gonna hate us regardless of who the president is. And thats exactly what I'm talking about when you say kids are watching the news for the first time and taking interest in politics, the mainstream media is treating this guy like hes the greatest thing since sliced bread, so all the children watching are getting a slightly skewed view
