As I had originally mocked, Obama has finally come to his senses and removed the ridiculous presidential seal from his podium. He had no comment.
After the MEDIA had a field day with his arrogance, he had better not have a comment.
Here are some comments from mainstream MEDIA, which I actually agree with for once:
“What a bizarre and dumb idea,” railed NBC political director Chuck Todd. “It really feeds the arrogance narrative.”
“The Audacity of Hype,” cracked ABC’s Jake Tapper. “No word on whether they played a remix of ‘Hail to the Chief’ as Obama walked in.”
Andrew Malcolm of the Los Angeles Times observed that Obama “has decided not to wait for any of the formalities like a presidential election, an inauguration or even a nomination, which he still hasn’t actually officially won yet.”
Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics: “The press corps adopts a subtext for each candidate. Daddy Bush was ‘a nice guy but out of touch.’ Bill Clinton was ‘smart but randy.’ Bob Dole was ‘heroic but too old.’ Gore was ‘brilliant but a fibber and a bore.’ Dubya was ‘pleasant but dumb.’ Obama’s subtext is rapidly becoming ‘charismatic but arrogant.’”
John McCain’s camp called the seal “laughable, ridiculous, preposterous and revealing – all at the same time.”
DAMN! I thought when McMahon made me wear a cheap gladiator outfit, that was lame. But Obama sitting in front of that fake seal was worse! Can I be on his campaign committee? DAMN!
