My Morning Wooten

Keeping it simple today.
Are you suffering Obama Fatigue?
I've heard this subject raised twice in the past 24 hours. The first time was on the Sean Hannity radio program. Enough said.

I'm tired of Obama and his reign hasn't officially started.

I'm tired of the way this Obama just keeps being the nominee.

He's always, like, being on TV and talking about president stuff.

I'm tired of it. He should go away and let that old guy talk more.

Karl: You've heard this subject because the Pew Research Center recently ran a poll on the topic, not because of some concerted right-wing effort to make news.

Karl, Jim Wooten cribs column ideas from radio "entertainers" (Pew not withstanding since this isn't the first time) and I'm the one that still has to have fights about credibility.

Karl: It's not the amount of time or space Obama's speeches and appearances garner on TV or in print. Instead, it's the adoration much of the press gives to his appearances. More than a few people are becoming a little tired of hearing how great Obama is. Seriously, must every major address the Senator gives be one of the best speeches in a generation? (See 2004 Democratic Convention address, remarks on race relations in America following Rev. Wright's comments, speech given to 200,000 Germans in the heart of Berlin, etc.)

Let's see.. Wooten / Sean Hannity / Others are contributing to Obama fatigue by TALKING ABOUT OBAMA ALL THE TIME.

Karl: Fair enough. I've followed your posts the past few days on blogger versus journalist credibility, and I agree with what you're saying.
