Obama "CUTS TRIP SHORT"?
Remember when George Bush went to his ranch at Crawford, fully fortified with cabinet members, secretaries, every communication he could need, and how the Democrats (including the media, of course) tore him apart for being gone so often? They also insulted him constantly for playing golf (he stopped playing when the war started). Obama has played more golf than Bush ever dreamed of and nobody insults him.
Obama went to Hawaii for Christmas during some of the most intense economic challenges this country's had and the media's saying he "cut his trip short" (that must be the White House meme because I saw a succession of about 5 mainstream media news readers say that exact phrase...not "left early", not "coming back before schedule"...no, it's "cut his trip short."
Now, you see...if it was a Republican president who'd gone off to a sunny island in the middle of the financial crisis, he'd have been excoriated...and Obama KNEW he'd have to come back early, right? SO what's the "CUT SHORT?" When someone schedules a trip for less days than hoped for because he's got business to do, and shouldn't have left anyway, is that cutting short a trip?
Any leftwinger who STILL doesn't believe in leftist media bias isn't awake. The double standard's palpable.
By the way...did you see Obama refer to himself as an OPTIMIST? What PLANET does he LIVE ON?
