Nope, No “Liberal” Bias Here

Allahpundit, on the president’s brackets:

This is a rare case where I think (hope?) that even our resident liberal trolls will admit that a Republican president in the same situation would be utterly destroyed by the media for wasting time on something so inane as NCAA brackets at a moment of global high anxiety. Libyan rebels holed up in Benghazi are preparing to make their last stand, with all that entails; cable news is wall-to-wall with updates on how much worse than Three Mile Island the situation in Japan is and whether Californians should be stockpiling iodide. And meanwhile, this guy’s talking about Pitt’s perimeter game. If you want to equivocate on world events that have captured the public’s imagination, okay (well, not okay), but can we at least deep-six the lighthearted photo ops until we know for sure that a cesium cloud isn’t headed for Tokyo? Says John Podhoretz, “We’re going on four weeks now, or more, that Barack Obama has been reading My Pet Goat.” Except he’s not just reading it. He’s doing ESPN segments about it.

But as I wrote earlier, given his general competence level, I’d prefer he stick to that sort of thing myself. He’s not good at it, either, but at least it won’t do much harm.

  1. This Presidency has turned out so much worse than even I had feared. And I came in with really low expectations.

  2. Not even mentioned is our own serious budget problems which could result in a government shutdown in a few (maybe) weeks. So not even governmental domestic concerns make a blip on the Presidents radar screen. Rather, Michelle and the girls, Malia and Sasha, are preparing to join the President on a trip to Rio next week. Because right now, nothing important is happening in South America; and they’ll be back in time to catch the Sweet Sixteen match-ups and update picks for the Final Four.

  3. Lol beat me to the Nero comment.

    Hopefully people will have learned that voting for someone whose slogan is “hope for change” means that “hope” is synonymous with “tough luck, sucker”.
