For years, I have been tracking how the Obamas use non-news shows and his boosters in the entertainment complex to advance his perpetual campaign. And in the reelection year, the Obama saturation of every entertainment platform is underway: filming NBC's "The Biggest Loser" in the East Room, appearing during the NCAA final at half-time, showcasing the glitterati at the "Easter Egg Roll," and the list goes on. My friends at Media Research Center
share an exchange on MSNBC about how this means Romney just can't compete with Obama's appeal. Substitute host Luke Russert noted: "You watch the Final Four the other night, Barack Obama at half time, long interview, Michelle Obama is going to be on the Biggest Loser. You see pictures of Obama with the kids. There's this culture of personality that Mitt Romney just can't compete with." And that's what's most important, right? To heck with what's happening to our competitiveness, our influence around the world, our trade deficit, our debt! As long Obama moves effortlessly in the entertainment milieu, as long as he sings on key with Al Green, as long as Michelle dances with Ellen, does any of that other stuff really matter?
