Exhaustive Politico Investigation Unearths Obama Secret

Posted by on Jul 17, 2012 at 6:26 am

If you thought the media was in the tank for Obama in 2008, you certainly were right. If you think they’re now an official part of his re-election team, you would also be correct.

Is this really the best they can do?

It’s embarrassing.

President Obama weighed in on a major national controversy Monday, choosing Thin Mints as his favorite Girl Scout cookies.

In Cincinnati for a campaign event, Obama was asked what his favorite kind of Girl Scout cookie was.

Obama called it “one of the toughest questions,” before deciding on the “mint ones.”

Meanwhile, Politico also offered up similar fluff on Mitt Romney.

The American Anti-Slavery Group (AASG) and the Free Burma Coalition (FBC) launched a campaign to protest the uniforms and called on the IOC to apologize and “promise to never support — indirectly or directly — the Burmese regime.” Torchbearers, too, were shocked to see the “Made in Burma (Myanmar)” label on their tracksuits. “When I looked at the label for the uniform, I went nuts,” said 2002 torchbearer Susan Bonfield in an interview with the Guardian. “When you are sending work representing the U.S. to a military dictatorship, I have an issue with that.”
Translation: Mitt Romney favors slave labor. Barack Obama likes cookies  (H/T Ben).
Meanwhile, over at ESPN, Obama’s second home after 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, there was even more slobbering.
Obama, dressed in a blue jacket and jeans, then walked out before a roaring crowd, shook hands with fans and sat down next to former aide Reggie Love, who played basketball for Duke University.

Obama and first lady Michelle Obama even appeared on “Kiss Cam,” the in-house video that spotlights kissing couples during a game break. The Obamas wouldn’t oblige during the first half, despite roars and some boos from the crowd. But in the fourth quarter, “Kiss Cam” peered back on the first couple and the president was ready: He put his arm around his wife and planted a big kiss on the first lady as the crowd roared.

In case you were wondering, the crowd roared. It probably would have made more sense if they showed Obama and Reggie on the Love Cam.

    So in the Politico article there is no mention of when the decision was made to contract the uniforms which leads me quite easily to conclude that the contract was awarded long before Romney took over. Wouldn’t finding this fact be quite easy? Easy if one cared about truth and fairness I suppose.

    As I have posted elsewhere the media has gone from biased, to corrupt to criminal in their support of Obama and the Democrats.

    Darn it. Now I have to seriously rethink my love for thin mints.

    And yes, that was a monumental decision, choosing thin mints. Uhuh. Isn’t our young president great?

    All this fluff bites PBO in the butt soon. Romney will be hardened by the scrutney while Obama will be facing tough questions for the first time.

    Meanwhile, Politico fails to answer important questions about Obama such as Briefs or Boxers?

    They took the time to track down 1 of the 10 thousand torchbearers, from 10 years ago, who was otragously outraged. After a few thousand phone calss, somebody in the newsroom jumped up and screamed..”I’ve found a WITCH”! Well maybe not a witch, but nice Bio.
