BBCs Obama obsession

#1
What is with the BBC's Obama obsession? Every time I look on the news.bbc.co.uk website, the headline news is Obama said this or Obama said that. Their arrse licking is as shameful as Blair's and Browns.

Because Brown is so hideously unpopular, sucking up to him would actually be noticed.

Obama ticks all the metrosexual lefty journalist boxes - black, apparently charismatic (although how much of that is spin, I have no idea), as much of a socialist as will ever get elected in the States, real power of patronage, etc.

But I'm a cynical old git ...

Oh yes, I forgot that Obama was black (after all, thats why he was voted in) and it probably is PC arrse licking by the BBC. How depressingly sickening.

Black? Why Black??

Please explain what proportion of blackness, makes one 'black'?
40%? 30%? 20%? 10%? 15%?


Just wondering.

Oh dear, muppet alert. Are you saying he is white? Lets see shall we. He is very dark skinned (yes there are people of darker skin, in Africa there are many shades of people), has the hair of a black person, has origins in Africa.
Oh yes, and he is officially classed as the first black president of the US. Is that good enough for you?

Strange, muppet, I thought one received one's genes from one's parents.





Not terribly 'black', I see. Perhaps he was adopted, is that what you mean??

Could it be because he is President of the United States?

What ever proportion the miserable socialist commentariat that infest the BBC deem necessary for sainthood.

I forget the precise photograph but Colin Powell (really not dark), Condoleezza (sp?) Rice (not very dark) and somebody else (quite dark) significant were in it and the caption was on the order of "In the real world, this would not be the three most powerful black people"

Obama reminds me of how Blair was in first term, snazzy suit, nice smile, even had designer clothes, interviews with numerous media outlets, all the while achieving sod all that benefited the country.
Just what has Obama done?

Nope, you're just terminally stupid.

Couple of theories:

a) a lot of BBC Oxbridge types have had a jolly year or two at Ivy League universities at taxpayers expense so like their old stomping ground.

b) Obama is reassuringly leftish liberal.

BO went down in my estimation for accepting the Nobel Prize when the ink had hardly dried on his signature accepting the Presidency.

Sainthood?? Oh contrare, Rodney. Messiahship at the very least. Right hand of the Great Architect and all that.

Genuflect, genuflect, genuflect.

Err, drill question? Left knee down or right knee down? Not in my copy of the Manual, sorry ...

Now that Brown has crashed and burned and the Labour government's on death row, Obama is the last great hope for the left, most of whom work at the BBC. Despite the best efforts of an undoubtedly able man, his inexperience is beginning to show. He is not living up to the pre-election hype (but who could) and his approval ratings are suffering badly.

By the way, I do believe his colour is known as 'mixed race'. That's Pantone C 110 'Buff Walnut' to be exact.

Perhaps the BBC are determined to nurture dear Bazza so that he does not go the same way as Gordon and Tony.

Let the BBC do what they like. In six months they'll be working for a living again. The Tories' shadow culture minister has just cracked his knuckles and announced a few changes:-

1) Licence fee to be frozen.
2) Crap, digital channels like BBC3 & BBC Parliament to go to subscription or be phased out if they can't pay their way. No more shows like 'Teenage Transexual' or 'My Penis and I'. Boo Hoo.
3) No more recruiting exclusively through the Guardian and paying them hundreds of thousands each year.
4) No more sending more staff than CNN to cover US elections. Even if it is the left's centrefold who is being elected.
5) No more renting a villa at the Cannes film festival, paying £30 grand a day for it and using it as a holiday hotel for senior managers.
6) No more spending a grand a month on taxis for individual managers.
7) Legions of diversity wallahs to be invited to spend more time with their civil partners and adopted babies.
8) No more using public money to buy 'gifts' for multimillionaire 'talent' like Jonathan Ross.

etc etc etc

Think you have a point "Volunteer".

As I've noted on previous threads, the most significant thing about Barry O. is that he's an Ivy League lawyer - Princeton; Harvard Law School; Pres of Harvard Law Review; Professor of Law, Univ of Chicago...

IMO, this profile speaks volumes about his mindset - he, & his wife, are "uber Ivy Leaguers": it informs all they are/ do. Why, for example, did he transfer from the excellent Occidental College to the much more expensive Princeton? Plenty of Occidental Coll grads go to Harvard Law, but I suspect BO really wanted to be "in" with the East Coast elite from the start.

His degree of negritude is almost irrelevant when compared with the significance of his "Ivy" background: this is obvious to many of his growing body of critics in the USA, but his BBC fan club will never understand this - because he is the only sort of American they don't habitually sneer at.

Wow. So under the Tories, the BBC really will be state-run.

ASHIE! Welcome back mate. I didn't know you were out, err I mean back.

Too damned right it'll be state controlled.

The forces of darkness will be vanquished from its corridors. Purged of perverts, people with regional accents and anybody who's a bit different the BBC will return to its received pronunciation roots with everybody wearing dinner jackets and bow ties and the National Anthem played nightly.


No more will it be part of Labour's spin machine. It'll be part of the Tory spin machine if it knows what's good for it. With the Chingford Strangler himself, Norman Tebbit sitting in the Director General's office, his familiar, David Davis perched on the end of the desk ready to do his bidding and Maggie on speed dial things, as they say, can only get better.
