Focus on the wishful thinking

by Jeremy Hooper

To highlight and promote an upcoming webcast, at which "pro-family" speakers will discuss issues like the so-called "battle to preserve marriage," the folks at Focus on the Family are today running this headline:

Because, of course, they didn't have the space for all the subtext that is really lying behind the heading:

As Obama Fatigue Sets in, Webcast Offers Pro-Family Perspective [CitizenLink]

**NOTE: Yes we are aware of the Pew poll that used the words "Obama fatigue" to refer to the 48% of Americans who said they are hearing too much about Obama. But we're even more aware of which sorts of sites are trying to get mileage out of the idea that a majority portion of the population's feelings that they are hearing too much about A CHARISMATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN AN OVERSATURATED MEDIA WORLD is somehow indicative of insurmountable ennui:

Your thoughts

LOL!! Exactly. What a bunch of idiots, that makes me laugh.

I'm getting extremely fatigued with screwed up moralistic hate-filled self-righteous assholes, who are also quite probably attracted to the same sex, and terrified and in denial enough, to hurt other people.

Well of course they are sick of hearing about him. As much as I try to avoid it, anytime I flip on Hannity and Colmes, Dick Morris is on there trashing Obama...and I mean every night. Kinda like how he used to be on every night trashing Hilary. Could they please just try to have an honest discussion about the candidates once in a while?

Just a thought, but isn't the country pretty split down the middle between Dems and Repubs? Could the 48% just be mostly the Repubs who feel that anything about him is too much?

Oh, absolutely Christopher! There are many and varied reasons why one would tell a pollster that Barack is overexposed.

And they have a lacky in Arizona named Peter Gentala? Come on - is that a real name? With a little thought we'd have the potential name of a new Sister.
