Anyone who doubts that President Obama has a solid lead, should simply watch This Week this morning.

The media desperately wants a close election, don't you think?

Well, if you had any doubts about either of the above, find a clip of this show.

I need to scream - figure I'll do it here...

Here's the "powerhouse" round table on OBL:

George Will leads off by saying that if you took me, myself and I out of the English language, Barack Obama would say nothing.

Bay Buchanon then leaps aboard and says Obama doesn't give credit to any of the brave heroes who carried out the raid.

Tavis Smiley then attacks from a different angle, calling MLK the greatest man this country has ever produced, preaching non-violence, then calling Obama "unpresidential" for talking about OBL.

Austin Goolsby gives us a brief respite, quoting Gates and defending the President (think about that, DEFENDING the President for giving the order to kill Osama bin Laden).

Then comes Greta Van Susterpalin to claim that President Obama couldn't have been less magnanimous.

I wanted to scream. Someone please link me any clips of President Obama taking credit for killing Bin Laden and/or not giving credit to the US military and SEAL Team 6. This was the creation of an alternate universe of facts on a major network, aided and abetted by Jake Tapper, of course.

They want a close election. They want tension.

I have never seen a more pitiful display than those 10 minutes on This Week. It was utterly reprehensible, devoid of reality and a simple pile on to attack this President strength and turn it into a weakness. Karl Rove couldn't have scripted that segment better.

Just yuck.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
