And our appetites remain lost.

It looks like Politico has finally given up on maintaining any semblance of objectivity. This morning, writers Todd Purdum and John Harris pooled their powers of swoonage to celebrate “what’s right with President Obama”:

Here’s a choice excerpt:

No one will ever mistake Obama for warm and fuzzy. But when he tries even a bit, he can’t help being winning. His smile remains dazzling, even if he flashes it less often.

Nauseous yet? Brace yourselves:

His adversaries are implacable, but a critical mass of Americans still like to feel better about themselves because they feel good about Obama, just as they did when they elected him twice. The public understands that the president’s biggest structural political problems are not of his making, and none of the setbacks of the second term have altered the fact that people basically like the guy.

Serious, you guys! Obama’s handsome and likable and handsome and good for our self-esteem. And handsome. Oh, and he totally isn’t responsible for any of that stuff that he did.

Excellent question. It’s definitely a far cry from legitimate reporting.

This tweeter’s not sniffing the Obama glue, and he could teach Politico a thing or two:

Amen. Politico’s shameless swill may pass for “real journalism” with Senate hacks, but it sure as hell doesn’t with us:

    Hey Politico, how about you keep your verbal fellatio of Obama to yourselves. How about you try, I don’t know, reporting on actual news or try to find justice for the four dead Americans President Smiley McDreamy let twist in the wind at Benghazi.

      And on their nose….

    The bed wetting, liberal “Skweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!” is strong with this one!

    Biased? You can’t be biased unless you’re saying something nice about a Republican.

  • Joe W.

    And the sheeple that voted for the POS are just lapping this pablum up. Come, Jesus….come soon!!!!!

    Dammit, I had already eaten lunch when I read this. Made me throw up in my mouth.

      Works better than a diet pill doesn’t it.

    Did the article come with a free poster of a smiling Obama for the dems to hang above their bed?

  • ObamaFail

    And to think liberals actually claim that the liberal media is unbiased and trustworthy.

  • Bui van vat

    You ask how much we love you must we explain
    We need you Obama like liberals need a brain
    You ask how long we’ll love you I’ll tell you true
    Until Jan 20 2017, we’ll still be loving you

      I missed that first time through. Just reread and agree with you on both points.

    Who cares if he gets his butt kicked by Putin and has to keep postponing Obamacare for political reasons? President Dreamboat is dreamy! Squeeeeeee!!!

  • trixiewoobeans

    It ought to be dazzling…we paid for it…along with everything else he has.

    But his song doesn’t have a beat and you can’t dance to it.

    To borrow from Pauline Kael, I can’t believe Obama is likeable. I don’t know anyone who likes him.

  • The Penguin (Happy Hanukkah)

    sickening.

    Who knew “Politico” was Latin for “Pitiful, slavish apple-polishers”?

    Wait, Chris Matthews got a job at Politico?

  • Magnifico

    I wouldn’t do him.

    I wouldn’t do him.

    How pitiful is that smile? What it is is a narcissistic phony smile. Time to barf is right. This man sickens me to the core.

    Until Obi is on the cover of Creem magazine, I won ‘t tack his pin-up on my bedroom wall! His smile isn’t even close to Steven Tyler… and he should do more tongue like Gene Simmons or Mylie Cyrus.

    how about all you dipshits stop going to politico’s website and giving them click revenue?

    • Zach Smith

      All it does is cost them bandwidth. I’m certainly not clicking on any ads.

    This made me think of the famous “We Love You Conrad” song from the 1963 movie Bye Bye Birdie. Then it was Girls v Boys, today it’s Libs v Cons.

    (Libs) We love you Barry, oh, yes we do
    We love you Barry and we’ll be true.
    When you’re not near to us, we’re blue.
    Oh, Barry, we love you!

    (Cons) We hate you Barry, oh, yes we do
    We don’t hate anyone as much as you
    Your singing makes us say pee yoo
    (or Your speeches make us say pee yoo)
    Oh Barry we hate you!

    Politico loves to kiss Obama’s ass at every opportunity.

    They managed to out-do even Oreilly in the butt-kissing department- really nauseating! They take themselves seriously?!

    Let’s face it Pres. O is more qualified to be on Tiger Beat than he is to be occupying the Oval Office! He does have a calling once he moves on to the next phase of his life.

    In this YouTube video we have delusional marxist, Hussein Obama, claiming that he will magically stop the oceans from rising: http://youtu.be/oQNkVmdicvA?t=17s
