After last night's State of the Union Speech, the ending of which was a truly amazing story of a veteran with 10 deployments who was horribly wounded by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Army Ranger Cory Remsburg was in the Capital for the speech and gave the applauding members of congress a salute.
But this morning NBC political writer Mark Murray tweeted this:
"Obama's ending on Remsburg wasn't just a story about America -- it also was a story about Obama. Nothing has ever come easy."
No way he said something like this, comparing what Remsburg has gone through with Obama. But yes he did say it. And it didn't stop there.
Obama's former speechwriter, Jon Favreau responded to Murray with this: "my thought exactly the first time I read it."
Oy. Then Murray fleshed out the same thoughts. But finally the Twitter universe came alive and responded to a political jounalist seeing Obama in everything.
"You couldn't even honor a soldier, a war hero, without making it about Obama. your cult mentality knows no bounds."
There's more at the link, but this is a good example of what drives me batty about our press corps. Sheesh.
