Your Arrogance Smells, Senator Obama

Cheap Solution, Smells like Hawaii -- Your fave?

Cheap & Smells Like Hawaii -- You Want?

Chalk it up to The One. According to one reporter who’s network is in the tank for Obama, he is not a very good host. In fact, it sounds to me like he treats his traveling press corps much like peasants to his lordship. It even smells like the feudal days apparently:

Obama’s campaign schedule is fuller, more hectic and seemingly improvisational. The Obama aides who deal with the national reporters on the campaign plane are often overwhelmed, overworked and un-informed about where, when, why or how the candidate is moving about. Baggage calls are preposterously early with the explanation that it’s all for security reasons. 

If so, I would love to have someone from Obama’s campaign explain why the entire press corps, the Secret Service, and the local police idled for two hours in a Miami hotel parking lot recently because there was nothing to do and nowhere to go. It was not an isolated case. 

The national headquarters in Chicago airily dismisses complaints from journalists wondering why a schedule cannot be printed up or at least e-mailed in time to make coverage plans. Nor is there much sympathy for those of us who report for a newscast that airs in the early evening hours. Our shows place a premium on live reporting from the scene of campaign events. But this campaign can often be found in the air and flying around at the time the “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” is broadcast. I suspect there is a feeling within the Obama campaign that the broadcast networks are less influential in the age of the internet and thus needn’t be accomodated as in the days of yore. Even if it’s true, they are only hurting themselves by dissing audiences that run in the tens of millions every night. 

The McCain folks are more helpful and generally friendly. The schedules are printed on actual books you can hold in your hand, read, and then plan accordingly. The press aides are more knowledgeable and useful to us in the news media. The events are designed with a better eye, and for the simple needs of the press corps. When he is available, John McCain is friendly and loquacious. Obama holds news conferences, but seldom banters with the reporters who’ve been following him for thousands of miles around the country. Go figure. 

The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama’s, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated. 

Reminds me of that scene in Top Gun, where Maverick gets a date with Charlie. Slider, unaware, chimes in with this line: “Crashed and burned, eh Mav?”

To which Maverick replies: “Slider,” and proceeds to sniff the air, “you stink.” Maverick then heads over to Charlie’s place for the evening.

H/T Hot Air.

  1. thats a damn shame…..obama is a corrupt and liar and stink and associated with people who hate america……….and so fort……….but guess what OBAMA STILL GONNA BE YOUR NEXT PRESIDENT! POOR WHITE PEOPLE!

  2. I thought it wasn’t about race? Yet, you bring it up.

    Hmm, weird… I guess us “white people” were the only ones to move past it.

    You, however, still seem like you need some therapy.

    Remember, McCain fought for all. Barry only fights for himself at your expense.

  3. Just read the “thats a damn shame…..obama is a corrupt and liar and stink and associated with people who hate america……….and so fort……….but guess what OBAMA STILL GONNA BE YOUR NEXT PRESIDENT! POOR WHITE PEOPLE!” (sic) For those of you in Rio Linda that means verbatim…..verbatim means…..oh never mind it means what it means, let’s move on with my point.

    Having read the reply I have to wonder if Detta Walker has managed to come to the front of poor Susan Delgado again. (fans of the Dark Tower series will know of which I speak). The tone reminds me of the scene in the story where Detta is at the “buffet” trying to eat everything she can to “feed her chile” yet she is unaware that she is feasting upon rotted flesh and ingesting poison into her system. That is much like the Obama supporters. They so desperately crave nourishment and comfort that they will swallow anything he sends there way, including his poisin, known as socialism.

    Listen folks, if you spent ten or more years in medical school and were smart enough to become a neurosurgen, I salute you and you fully deserve the millions you make in salary annually. Why should you have to give your hard earned money to someone else who chose to drop out of high school, pump out some chillins and live with (note I did not say “marry”) someone who can only make minimum wage? It is pure Darwinism people. Our ancestors (regardless of race) had to prepare for the long hard winters by toiling during the seasonal months preparing for the harsh months. Those who did a good job survived to reproduce, those that did not died. Unfortunately, today we feel the need to let everyone live regardless of their respective contributions to our society. Prisoners who kill live better in jail than some of you reading this message now… does that make you feel? This is NOT about race. It is NOT about gender. It IS about common sense. Wake up America…..Stop enabling the pariah (sp?) of our society and tell them to get off their ass and get a job, two or three if needed to make ends meet. THAT is the AMERICAN way. Hand outs, everyone getting the same thing and redistribution of wealth based upon perceived social inequalities is the Communist way. Want to be a communist???? Move to Russia, China or North Korea but NOT IN MY BACK YARD damn it.

    Vote smart America….your children are counting on you.
