Honeymoon Over

Usually the honeymoon period of a relationship goes on for at least a year before the spouse starts irritating you with those strange sounds. But I’m not talking spouses here…I’m talking about President Obama. Is the honeymoon over already?

It has been argued that the media has been too soft on Obama. That they have treated him like a rock star…adored him…no tough questions. The press probably didn’t press that hard on Obama during the election. Heck…they wanted to make sure he was elected.

You could just feel the love from the media. It was oozing out of every media portal. I was watching Glenn Beck on NECN and he read a quote from the Washington Post in December 2008, that described Obama during his workout. It read like a Danielle Steele book. You would have thought someone was describing their lover.

“The sun glinted off chiseled pectorals sculpted during four weightlifting sessions each week, and a body toned by regular treadmill runs and basketball games.” Remember…this was in the Washington Post.

It was comical when Glenn Beck asked to have the studio lights lowered while he read the quote outloud…but even funnier when he re-read the quote and played Barry White music in the background. "Baby….oh, baby"…in that low Barrytone voice.

But now the media is lifting the house lights on Obama…no more dimmers or mood lighting, instead Obama is being put in the bright spot light. No more low soft moaning Barry White pillow talk….more like a shrill piercing Bjork. The difference now is that the liberal journalists don’t have to worry that Obama might lose the election. Now the news media can give an un-biased position.

It seems that Obama has become fair game for the media. The love affair is over…just like with Brittany, Lindsay Lohan, A-rod, Michael Phelps, and Chris Brown. (I wanna go on record…I never loved Lindsay Lohan.)
