Obama is playing it safe, with no downside risk, with his decision to bar the Bay Area’s media from attending his appearance here. Sure, they’re going to whine now, but when 2012 rolls around, they’re going to fall into place and support him to their last drop of ink.
Meanwhile, he has limited his exposure somewhat, making sure that the suitably cowed Washington press, which depends on him entirely for its reporting livelihood (as opposed to local media, which has other things to cover), doesn’t expose him when he embarrasses himself, as he inevitably will. (I say “inevitably” because he tends to relax his guard in San Francisco, and make stupid statements about bitter Americans.)Email This Post To A Friend
