BBCs Obama obsession

Discussion in 'US' started by Cabana, Nov 15, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What is with the BBC's Obama obsession? Every time I look on the website, the headline news is Obama said this or Obama said that. Their arrse licking is as shameful as Blair's and Browns.
  2. 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 ...
  3. 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.
  4. .

    Black? Why Black??

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

    Just wondering.

  5. 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?

  6. 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??

  7. Are you fcuking blind

  8. No, muppetist of all the muppets - 20:20, if you want to know.

    And I see white (pink), as pink as my dear 'ole Ma. Does zat makee mez bliick?? Or are you just a common-or-garden racist, and see black in everything?

  9. Could it be because he is President of the United States?
  10. 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"
  11. 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?
  12. Nope, you're just terminally stupid.
  13. 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.

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

    Genuflect, genuflect, genuflect.

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