Obama Got Free Advertising From Our Media

All you non-conformists who voted for Obama -- you're conformists:


Stories and photos about Obama in the news pages outnumbered those devoted to McCain. Reporters, photographers and editors found the candidacy of Obama, the first African American major-party nominee, more newsworthy and historic. Journalists love the new; McCain, 25 years older than Obama, was already well known and had more scars from his longer career in politics.

The number of Obama stories since Nov. 11 was 946, compared with McCain's 786. Both had hard-fought primary campaigns, but Obama's battle with Hillary Rodham Clinton was longer, and the numbers reflect that.

McCain clinched the GOP nomination on March 4, three months before Obama won his. From June 4 to Election Day, the tally was Obama, 626 stories, and McCain, 584. Obama was on the front page 176 times, McCain, 144 times; 41 stories featured both.

My reply:


Obama is a prototypical tyrant/power abuser, like Clinton was.

He promises unrealistic things to manipulate other people.

George W. Bush dealt with hard realities and stabilized a nation. It's currently heresy to agree with that, and other people will try to use guilt and moderation points to intimidate you into agreeing.

However, the current economic mess is Clinton's legacy, not Bush's. There have been no terrorist attacks, and the police state people have been nattering about hasn't appeared.

History makes fools look like the dilettantes they are, and it will do the same for Obama: he was a media and popular darling among the uninformed, but is a fundamentally corrupt person with a very shady past and no tangible ideas, and he introduces America to the disorganization that will lead it to become a failed third-world state (as Spengler, Toynbee and Plato tell us).

The rest of the world is celebrating Obama from Schadenfreude, because they want to see the USA humbled and weakened.

The Crowd loves a tyrant, because the tyrant promises symbols they cannot understand are not real.

Subvert the dominant paradigm, don't be a solipsist.
