NOT A HAPPY REPORTER...Obama micro-manages Iraq trip and snubs the media. Memo: To Obama: Don't bite the hand that feeds you
It does make one wonder what exactly Obama is worried about. Perhaps some slip-ups from the greenhorn Senator, we have plenty to write about already in that area, but its good politics to try to prevent further gaffes. Walking a tightrope of policy can be difficult. Can't promote change when the same is where the policy goes...a lot of ifs ands or buts hovering an already inflated image to a change agent. What will happen if "change" becomes too risky? So stage your tour with photo-ops for marketing purposes and choose your words carefully. Its all about perception at this point. I perceive a fraudulent candidate.
