How does Obama persuade people to be patient?

Hard times

How does Barack Obama persuade people to be patient about their outrage over the ongoing bailout of Wall Street — while also persuading them to get impatient about long-term fiscal reforms that may not affect them for years? This was the task of the president’s second press conference, and it wasn’t easy. Nothing is, as he reiterated. ‘By the time an issue reaches my desk, it’s a hard issue,’ he said, echoing a sentiment his predecessor often voiced. ‘This is hard,’ Obama said of reducing the deficit, a point he returned to later: ‘I’m not going to lie to you. It’s tough.’ The president’s other job at the press conference was to manage anger, so he continued his role as national therapist.

However talented the man might be, Barack Obama as silver-tongued savior, is in reality a creation of the mainstream media. When George W. Bush was inarticulate at times, he was the butt of jokes and worse; a buffoon who got through life on the coattails of his father. Yet, when Obama stutters through rehearsed speeches or maniacally laughs while discussing our ailing economy on 60 Minutes, these gaffes are either ignored or oddly offered as further proof of his oratory genius. But why? Because those who control most major newspapers and TV are immature dreamers still stuck on their vision of a socialist utopia; the stuff of teenaged vows to ‘change the world.’ And their hero epitomizes all they hold dear; a hip, youthful knight who champions activism — whatever that means — and looks good doing it.”
