Anyone read Mark Mardell’s latest blog entry here? It seems that our Mark, once so to the fore in propagandising for the Obamessiah, is now starting to worry that things might turn out too well for The One.

John Podesta (head of Obama’s transition team and former Clinton chief of staff) “compared Obama to Spock from Star Trek. … Podesta was not sure Obama felt anything, especially in his gut. He intellectualized and then charted the path forward, essentially picking up the emotions of others and translating them into ideas” It is rarely good for a politician to lack gut instincts. But at the moment it is the president who needs a good translator, to turn his his ideas into emotion that inspires others.

I love the way Mardell turns to the New York Times as his source for evaluating how well things are going for the White House but even the left-leaning Times is now gunning for Obama. The Mid-terms are going prove very turbulent for Obama and his media sooth-sayers. Tough times for Marky ahead..

    The BBC seem to be very quiet on a recent US poll that showed a majority of Americans like Barry as a person but they don’t like his policies.

    I’m betting the BBC have hidden this as the BBC have tried to paint anyone who opposes Barry as a nasty white red neck racist. Clearly this poll doesn’t show that.


  2. David Preiser (USA) says:

    Mardell mentions that the President is going to campaign in Wisconsin, but he doesn’t want you to know that Wisconsin Democrat Senator Russ Feingold – who is up for re-election – is going to avoid Him tonight.  It seems that Feingold is just one of many Democrat candidates who have been avoiding Him like the plague.

    Instead, Mardell is hoping someone else will preach in His name.

    For,” said Peter, “it is written in the book of Psalms,
       ” ‘May his place be deserted;
          let there be no one to dwell in it,’ and,
       ” ‘May another take his place of leadership.’Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from John’s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.”

    (Acts I: 20-22)


  3. Craig says:

    Mardell says of Obama’s campaigning in Wisconsin, “Some think this is about getting the youth vote out.” Well, at least he can count on one of Mark’s youthful American BBC colleagues, Matt Danzico (as DB showed in this post).


  4. George R says:

    Mardell must be falling for his Corporation’s propaganda, and so now he puts Red Ed as his messiah.

    Imagine if Bush had proposed this:

    US Government Wants Backdoors In All Communications Devices

    United States law enforcement and security officials are planning to ask Congress to mandate that all devices that use the Internet to provide two-way communication – whether they be phones, websites or applications – have backdoors allowing for wiretap access if so requested. According to the New York Times, the Obama administration will submit a bill to congress next year asking for this requirement. This will mean that all your Internet-enabled devices – your iMacs, MacBook Pros, your iPhones, your iPads, and even your iPod touches – and the software they use to communicate will be liable to be sniffed by the US government.

    Glenn Beck:

    “Understanding Obama’s World View”

    For a moment, from the title, it sounds as though Frei might be trying to compete with Beck, and be telling us more about the Black Panthers, something like this:

    “Same Old Black Panthers”

    Bu no, Frei’s target is not the Black Panthers (which seem to censored out by BBC America) but this:

    “A secret world of US militias”
