Major Garrett of CBS News asked the president a legitimate question yesterday, and the president lost his temper. The press corps went went nanners attacking Garrett for “disrespecting” their president… for asking a legitimate question.
Their are very few real journalists working in the American news media today, most of them could better be described as “Democrat Media Operatives.” But their fierce, almost tribal defense of Obama and attacks against his critics are not mere partisanship. A lot of that anger comes from the MFM knowing that Obama is not the massive genius intellect they sold the public in 2008. That he isn’t a great and awesome president. He isn’t even as cool as they would like to believe he is. He’s a mediocrity elevated far above his gifts, and that his presidency is a trail of failure and damage to the country.
The press actually gets to see Obama unfiltered. They know he’s a mediocrity at best, but they sold him. He is their product and their prize; America’s First Black President. Race, party, and ego trump everything else. And when someone like Major Garrett, or before him, Neil Munro of the Daily Caller, exposes the president’s mediocrity, the press turns on him.
It’s like “The Emperor’s New Clothes” only at the end, the truth-telling kid gets beaten to death by the angry mob trying to protect the delusions of their delusional and mediocre king.
