First, I am here in class, participating. Gold star.
Okay, I don't like this article.
It tastes bad.
Bleh. There was an extended characterization of Obama; it was well-done... nice imagery, color, all that. Since it was so well done, it probably made me like the article less.
I guess the part that's getting to me is what Obama said to the business owner. I'm not saying it wasn't a good point, I'm not saying it wasn't a perfectly framed media moment. He just sounds like a snot, and that makes me bristle.
Normally, when I'm reading political material, I try to keep an open mind and give the benefit of the doubt. Since the author certainly wasn't aiming for objectivity, I'm not going to bother to stifle my irritation.
