The Obama honeymoon

As I hear all the glowing, almost reverent reports the mainstream media give about Barack Obama, it almost makes me feel sorry for him. They have put him up on such a high pedestal, he has nowhere to go but down. No one could possibly meet all their expectations. The only real question is how long before the honeymoon ends.

Well, right now he isn't even president. I'm assuming that it'll last until after his 100 days. Once that is over the dogs will be unleashed.

Of course this is also forgetting that the media is just as fickle as the people. It'll have high hopes the one minute and then lower their standards to meet realistic expectations to accommodate the President they need to love. Unless of course he really screws up, and then its open season.

The "media" may still be in love with our president-elect, but the left wing of his party is already showing some disenchantment at his cabinet picks.

Dennis,
The media's honeymoon will not end with Obama. It never ended with Clinton as they saved his bacon with their "sex don't matter" propaganda campaign.

As Professor ed pointed out, it may end with the left wing loons, but not the media......
