Is The Media Love Affair With Obama on the Rocks?

While most of us would agree that Barack Obama’s decision to forgo public financing is unlikely to swing any actual votes, one constituency it may make a difference with is among the media, which is obsessed with the issue. David Broder has a critical Obama column today noting both his financing flip flop and his refusal to accept the McCain proposal on town hall meetings. This comes on top of that absurd Obama seal that was unveiled last week, which even the New York Times has a snarky post about. Marc Ambinder notes the hubris. I remember several times during the campaign already in which the pre-mature coronation of Obama went to his head and caused problems, most notably in the days leading up to the New Hampshire primary. Now Obama has gone from being an insurgent in the primary to running as if he is the incumbent president in the general election. And from being the candidate who would usher in the “new kind of politics” to a candidate who has become the most craven sort of politician. I wouldn’t be surprised if over the next few weeks we start to see more critical coverage of Obama.
