It’s Friday. Time for “The Obama Show”

Filed under: Media Bias,Obama — DRJ @ 3:43 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

This week’s episode is “Obama takes NBC News’ crew out for burgers.” Previous episodes include the girls’ first day of school, Michelle’s White House garden, the new swing set, Michelle & Barack’s date night, Obama takes co-worker Biden on a burger run, and this year’s most popular episode, a multi-part event featuring puppy Bo Obama. ***UPDATE: There’s more! $24,000 date night in New York. ***

Before the Sonia Sotomayor nomination, Obama’s approval rating index was at +1, its lowest point ever. After Sotomayor his approval bounced to +10, so this a good time to make nice with the media and get those weekend poll ratings up with a human interest story that helps Americans forget things like GM, Chrysler, trillion dollar debt, unemployment, North Korea nukes, and Iran.

  1. I don’t quite see the point. Even if Obama’s poll numbers dropped down to Bushian levels, his media sycophants would never bother to report on it.

    Better help her (or him), Patterico. That site really needs a new template!

  17. Boy, and I really like burgers too. But if The One keeps doing this, I may have to swear off of them.

  20. According to her bio, Jamie Holts watches way too much CNN. Is her soul worth saving?

  21. “These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

    These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.”

  22. Is this the trip to 5 Guys where Baracky did not know what the NGA was?

    Oh, did you know that John Kerry served in VietNam, and Jamie Holt likes this blog?

  23. Now where those Kobe-beef burgers?
    If not, the NBC should feel short changed, because Teh One only eats the best.

  24. Gee,

    It wouldn’t be as popular an episode if the y included the fact that the dark lord Obamus is cutting off weapons sales to Israel; thus beginning the process of throwing them under the bus…

    Unfortunately, I knew it was coming sooner or later

  25. Wouldn’t be as funny if they let it be known that Obama’s throwin the Jooooooos under the bus…

  26. Jamie- can you borrow me $20 till next Friday?

  27. This is the crappiest bread and circuses we’ve ever gotten. The MSM is eating all the bread and the white-hating jew-terrorizing black panthers got all the tickets to the circus.

  28. My favorite episode of The Obama Show was when he meets his “evil twin.” By the end of the show, I couldn’t tell which was which!

  29. I actually like President Obama’s personality. He speaks extremely well. Compare that to President Bush’s pride in being unpopular – “spending his political capital”. Fiscal Conservatives are so bankrupt, the leaders of the Republicans are now Limbaugh and Gingrich – the only two people more unpopular than Bush.

    President Obama is gunning for a $20 trillion debt by the time he exits office on Jan 21, 2017. The AAA rating of the federal government debt will have been toast for several years by then. The country will go Iceland/AIG shortly thereafter because we simply cannot pay $1 trillion a year in interest in addition to taxes to fund everything else. The numbers make no sense. The NEW thing is that debt and spending has been ramped up so severely, that now we know when the endgame will happen.

    This American ideal of “nothing can go wrong; we are the Greatest” will have been proven wrong by then. The greatest generation is the greatest fail. You know, $20 trillion is a big fat elephant in the room. I absolutely hate President Bush. For years he claimed to be the leader of the fiscal conservative party. He failed so completely he enables others to say, “we tried Bush’s way, and look what happened.”

  30. Dang, now I need a 5 Guys fix. Seriously, those burgers are worth the stop. Thank God I’ve got one around the corner.

    As for the BHO Show – I always hear the Bullwinkle and Rocky theme song when he does stuff like this.

    Vivian Louise (c0f830)

  31. What can I say? Obama likes 5 Guys. I like 5 Guys. We’ve got common ground here.

    Now, the press on the other hand…………….

  32. And BO and Michelle are doing New York this weekend. How sweet!

  33. Nine out of ten bloggers surveyed agree that Jamie Holt needs to work on her template…

  34. Wesson, you really were not paying much attention were you?

  35. You know, $20 trillion is a big fat elephant in the room. I absolutely hate President Bush. For years he claimed to be the leader of the fiscal conservative party. He failed so completely he enables others to say, “we tried Bush’s way, and look what happened.”

    If you hate $20 trillion debt, then you should really hate Obama, since he’ll have amassed more than twice the debt Bush managed to.

  36. DRJ,

    Your link is to Rasmussen’s weird “Presidential Approval Index,” not its “Approval Rating.”

    Obama’s “Approval Rating” is 58% on Rasmussen, 62% on Gallup.

    I’m sure this small error will be corrected promptly.

  37. Poon is trolling everywhere today. It has its marching orders.

    JD (8d3f8f)

  38. I didn’t realize pointing out a correction was “trolling” JD.

    poon (093c46)

  39. Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve corrected it and added a link to the Presidential Daily Approval Index history.
