This is, like Crazy Eddie would say, INSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE! I have heard the expression before in the blog grapevines but I never really took the time to actually read about this until just a few moments ago.
Obama Fire Side Chats? And there are some that claim the FDR tag on Obama originated from the Right? Please. STFU.
So, in FDR fashion and style (once again not an original thought to himself and always having to steal a persona from some where or someone else) the Czar is going to speak to "his people". I hope so because he sure as hell isn't talking to me. He has nothing to offer me that amounts to anything at all. Then again, perhaps bravo sierra is now a commodity.
Maria Christensen writes at the Seattle Examiner, "President Obama to give first prime time press conference on Monday". That sounds innocuous enough until the very first sentence.
President Barack Obama likes to keep the public informed about what's going on. After all, this is a president who promised to use technology to foster "a new level of transparency, accountability and participation for America's citizens." On Monday, February 9th, 5 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. EST, 20 days after taking office, he will hold his first official, prime-time press conference as president. The technology may not be any more cutting-edge than television and the internet, but there's certainly more openness than our last president who, when coming into office the first time, waited until February 22nd to give an afternoon press conference. Bush didn't even hold a prime-time press conference until October of 2001. [...]
The ending is adjoining gag reflex material:
[...] You can watch the press conference live on the network channels - ABC, NBC and CBS - and on cable news - CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. You can also watch live online on CNN Live. If you miss it, there will probably be a video posted on Hulu.com where you can also find a video library of President Obama's weekly internet broadcasts which have been called fireside chats for the modern age. [END]
It's going to be a long 4 years.
I'll be watching the Marxist for sure. That way, you won't have to.
