Meanwhile, In The Free (Less Beholden Media) Countries...

With the noted exception of (nearly real) libertarian flamethrower Glenn Beck and a gaggle of significant conservative critics I can count on my fingers, the American media that helped elect Barack Obama continues to act as his greatest support system. They filter out missteps, explain away gaffes, bury calamities and write disastrous choices out of history so that Americans that view the news with an uncritical eye may be forgiven for thinking that our President is somehow competent.

After all the media says he's doing such a great job, right?

The foreign press, however, did not tie their credibility to playing up Obama as a leg-tingling "lightworker" as the American press did, and the salvos directed against Obama's ineptitude, his classlessness, and his arrogance have been epic.

The latest bombs dropped on Obama from Gerald Warner in the UK Telegraph is an example of the kind of commentary that are becoming all too common:

President Barack Obama has recently completed the most successful foreign policy tour since Napoleon's retreat from Moscow. You name it, he blew it. What was his big deal economic programme that he was determined to drive through the G20 summit? Another massive stimulus package, globally funded and co-ordinated. Did he achieve it? Not so as you'd notice.

Make sure to read to the final paragraphs for Warner's new nickname for our President.

Our oldest allies have taken the measure of our President, and find him sorely lacking. I'm sure our enemies noticed that even quicker than our allies. We can only hope that our foolish November decision to elect a slogan instead of a leader won't be a moral mistake.

It's so nice to know that if we need some information about the American president, we can check out the British press.

And the newspapers wonder why they're going out of business.

Maybe it's because they are so very full of FAIL.

Can you imagine what the Russians, Chinese, Iranians and Turks are saying about him in their private conferences? I mean, after they stop laughing.

This guy would be fired the day after this came out in the good old freedom loving USA. Not that any paper would ever dare print it. It's all Bush's fault anyway........
