Another one bites the dust

Posted by SelkirkTMO on Sun May 6 20:23:14 2012

Anybody got a spare football for Obama to spike? :)

Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso, a senior Qaeda militant who has been on the F.B.I.’s Most Wanted list in connection with the U.S.S. Cole bombing, was killed, Yemeni officials said.

The GOP spin on this is that the Cole had it coming and the President got one of the good guys. Back to you, Walter.

You think? Personally I don’t think Kennedy would have survived the election campaign if news were the 24-hour cycle it is today. Someone would have found out the dirt about Marilyn and that would be that.

OTOH, Nixon wouldn’t have gotten past the primaries looking like he did either.

Allegedly, his flop sweat was what did him in the first time. Didn't want to put on his TV pancake. But he learned thanks to his TV advisor ROGER AILES, who now runs FOX News. Yep ... THAT Roger Ailes ...

1960: JFK arrives a day before the TV debate, has a few hours of horizontal therapy with an unnamed young woman in his hotel room, talks over the likely questions with his aides, takes a nice nap, arrives early at the studio where professional theatrical makeup is applied to his face.

Nixon, still suffering lingering effects of the flu, refuses to reschedule, arrives a few hours before the debate, bangs his already injured knee on the car door at the airport, doesn't rest but instead goes directly to the studio, where he refuses offers of makeup, opting instead to put something called "Lazy Shave" on his five o'clock shadow.

Nixon carried the harsh, painful lessons of that early televised debate with him for the rest of your life. He even told David frost, seventeen years later, "It doesn't matter who you are. It doesn't matter what you say. What matters is how you look on television".

No Presidential candidate since then has ignored this basic proinciple, with the possible exception of Walter Mondale in 1984.

Exactly. Good for him. But my contention is that the horizontal mambo wouldn’t survive today’s scrutiny. Not that it matters. I would care about competence before anything else!

The media knew all about JFK and his women--particularly Marilyn Monroe. It was an open secret, but in those days, there was a gentlemen's understanding between the White House and the Press Corps not to print things like this. You're right, though, JFK would never have survived such a thing in today's 24-hour, feeding-frenzy news environment. You can't begin to imagine how closely the President is watched by contemporary media until you've actually been in a WH press briefing. It's INSANE. Trust me on this.

Oh yes. And the fact that there are photographers and video cameras ready in case Marine 1 crashes. Which is why I, apart from constitutional ineligibility, would never make president. I would tell them to f*** off if the event were not something that was either official or political.

I guess my model here is the British Royal Family, where the press are invited to cover official events, but there is some modicum of privacy afforded to purely personal and family events.

I beg to differ. Obama actually had a shorter "honeymoon period" with the press after his inauguration than any President since FDR. Believe that.

But when did that happen? When did reporting turn into National Enquirer?

I have always said that if Clinton wanted to entertain Monica in the Oval Office, it was only his, hers, and Hillary’s business. Not ours. If Kennedy was screwing every girl in sight, I wouldn’t care.

But I’m not the average US voter.

Unfortunately.

Truth is, it WAS none of anyone's business what Clinton did. However, when asked about it, under oath, he lied. That was wrong on his part. Very wrong.
He should have just said, yes, with a lack of judgement, I did have relations with "that woman", and my wife and I are working it out. Case closed.

And we know how that worked out for him ... and for those who only listened to it on radio, it was obvious that Nixon kicked Kennedy's ass in the debate. But TV showed the flop sweat which did him in even more than his stubble ...

After years of Whitewater, dead Arkansas state troopers and a myriad of other tinfoil issues, republican henchman Ken Starr came up with nothing as to what the investigation was created for. But good old Newtie and his pals wanted Clinton badly and so this issue, which had nothing to do with what was being investigated made the political hay that they couldn't on all that tinfoil.

Ah well ... between that and "wag the dog" forcing Clinton to back down and fight this instead of Al Qaeda and more pressing issues, we lost a few buildings a few years later but at least they got Clinton. Yay. :(
