      Ignoring the question isn't going to make it go away.


      Why is it OK for the President to now stoop to pandering to the Politics of Distraction?

      Hey, HE's the guy who kept repeating it during his campaign. And he's still absolutely correct about the fact that is what The Press engages in.

      Not important shit. Emotional, divisive, DISTRACTION. That's what they engage in.

      Why, all of a sudden, is it OK for Barack Obama to contribute to it? Oh, Ann Curry asked! Oh, fucking excuse me...

       

      I'm sorry, but I will not honor that question with an answer--it panders to the Politics of Distraction, something I've spoken out against since the early days of my campaign for President. We have far more important things to be talking about.
       

      I thought the grown-ups were in charge now?

      REPEAL the Telecomm Act & REVIEW this decision. NO journalist should be fired because their boss can't have the truth told.

          it's all about me, and not what The President could have said, something which would have easily been a double-win for him AND for Democrats.

          1) he would have risen above the Politics of Distraction, as he swore he was capable of

          2) it would have made the Press look even stupider than they do now

          3) it would have demonstrated that yes, there really IS an adult in charge.

          If this doesn't seem obvious to you, that's not my problem...
