OTV scares the POOP out of me

Today as I was running... shocking, isn't it. Today I hit three miles... whoo whoo!

I was running, and since I haven't found my head phones, I read the captions. I was watching the news and there was a story that stunned me.

Apparently Obama likes to exclude the already fawning press corps from attending certain events... and instead has his own film/media crew to produce a prettier picture from his perspective. Um... does anyone else think this is rather disturbing? See an example from this ABC news story I found online. The story illustrated seemed inocuous enough...but who is naive enough to think it'll end there... come on... the people of this country are so easily manipulated... I really think people want to be manipulated... otherwise... why would this have happened? Honestly... the easily manipulated need to pull a resonant Homer Simpson "DOH"!

What are we ... a freakin' dictatorship now? Wow...that transition from democracy, to socialism ...straight to a dictatorship happened in like... 100 days. Impressive.

I don't have a problem if he wants his own crew... IF he lets the outside media outlets in too. Let's face it... most of this country would rather stick their heads in the sand than face up to what they did to this country in the last election. And that... always scares the poop out of me.

...and NO I don't want OTV... whether that O is for Obama or Oprah... a BIG N-OOOOOOOOO.

That is beyond troubling.

Agreed. Like you said, it isn't like the press is wrapped around his little finger anyway.

That is very interesting...
I'm curious to see how far he takes it.

Change is a here. It's all about the definition of what your change is... and I think everyone was operating on a diff't definition.
