RESPONSE TO NUDNIK'S LATEST RANT

Reader comment on item: Reflections on Obama's Inauguration
in response to reader comment: You don't reacall hearing it? So what!

Submitted by DANIEL REDMOND (United States), Jul 22, 2009 at 19:46

So Obama made a statement on a Chicago radio station. Guess what, Abu, I don't live in Chicago, so I guess I wasn't tuned in to the same programming you were that day. Now since it appears that you have worked yourself up into a point of near apoplexy over the issue of Obama's media scrutiny, or lack thereof, let me explain a simple fact to you before you pop a blood vessel. No major party candidate for the office of President of the United States can avoid serious in-depth scrutiny by the media. And I mean NOBODY, get it? If there was any dirt to be found on Obama some blogger or journalist would have found fame and fortune in exposing it. They didn't because it wasn't there.

And, by the way, as wonderful as it may be that you can quote Leo Tolstoy from memory, resorting to the random quote of some famous intellectual is generally considered the last refuge of those who can think of nothing relevant to say on their own. And referencing this specific quote, could it be that you yourself are one of those who has failed to comprehend the true significance of the Obama election?
