Thoughtfulness or TelePrompter freeze?

Deep in thought or something else?

.

"In his recent appearance on the Today Show Jonahan Alter (of the very liberal Newsweek) said you have to respect President (Barry Soetoro aka Barack) Obama for his thoughtfulness.


"Sorry, Jonathan, that's not thoughtfulness you see, that's (Soetoro alias) Obama's teleprompter freezing up!"

Right. Because, by definition, Obama can't be anything but evil or incompetent or both. That is the basic, unspoken assumption that seems to preface every statement or "analysis" from the far right.

For them, it is literally inconceivable that Obama might actually be thoughtful, isn't it? Such a quality is so foreign to FOX/Rush etc. that it can't even be imagined. He must of course be instead incompetent, completely thrown off by some problem with the "teleprompter" -- you know, because by definition, we have to mention the teleprompter no matter what -- as if it were some secret affliction of Obama, and Reagan, Bush & Bush didn't inevitably use it themselves.

The world is so much EASIER, isn't it, when one starts from simplistic assumptions that pre-determine everything in that world! Obama is by definition evil and incompetent, so there is no way we can interpret his silence the way we would any other human being on the planet. It MUST be a sign of evil or incompetence. It MUST!!!!
