He’s back pedaling as fast as he can right now. He said a lot of things and now people want him to deliver and guess what? He can’t. Duh!

He was elected because the media had him up on a pedastal. The Middle East is at war and all he has to say is “There is only one president at a time? He has no thought, reassurance or ideas to offer ?? How ridiculous is that !
Welcome to obamavoid the president who votes present on world crisis . Its 3 AM and he was on vacation ; he had better call Hillary !!

Having utterly failed to keep the public informed of the back-room dealings that have resulted in the current economic crisis, it’s unsurprising that most ‘journalists’ continue to make themselves more irrelevant by going after low hanging fruit or by simply being mouthpieces of the establishment, repeating everything they’re told to repeat.

Give the new guy a break. If the press had done its job during the last eight years, we wouldn’t be where we are now. How was it that so few reporters could find anything to write about Veep Cheney all those years? And you whine because the President-elect went for ice cream cones with his daughters? Wake up. If the press really does its job, the public’s call for change might actually be be answered by effective government monitored honestly and fully by the media. It’s a new ball game; figure it out.

Reuters is guilty of using many such idiotic headlines in their stories. I guess the need to compete with CNN and others for our eyeballs is too great. The world is not coming to an end, despite the impression one gets from scanning your home page!

had there been news this wouldn’t be an issue, also i don’t think the American people are interested in what the pres elect did on his holiday as much as the media is in getting the story.

The Israeli’s have laid siege to occupy and steal more lives and land from the Gaza. When are they planning to leave? 2011? It is suggested that Bush, et al is behind this. It is his M.O.S. Does he want to serve a third term? Probably, but… NEVER will happen. You people are out there arguing about what “the Press” gets to do, did, has done, will do, will get to do. As, I said, how silly, and how petty. Like it or not, the Palestinians do have rights to a STATE. So, while you are arguing over nonsense, and the press that has hurt, killed and maimed too many people with their voices and cameras, and who have remained mostly silent for 8 years, you worry about them> Guess what? If Bush and others get their way you will have a new nuclear war to worry about. Go back to university. Oh! that is right no one can afford it for the bankruptcy of the US and besides there are no funds. So, I guess gossip will be the thing to do. You are doing it, aren’t you?

It’s a lack of respect by the press in both cases.
As for Bush not lashing out at his critics, ask Scott McClellan, Paul O’Neil, Joe Wilson/Valarie Plame or Colin Powell about how that works.
