'The Obama Infatuation'

Bob Samuelson nails it again in an op-ed in today's Washington Post under the above title. He cites a Pew Research Center Study on the topic -- which of course, received scant coverage. Here's the opening paragraph:

"The Obama infatuation is a great unreported story of our time. Has any recent president basked in so much favorable media coverage? Well, maybe John Kennedy for a moment, but no president since. On the whole, this is not healthy for America.

In his column two weeks ago about Obama's astronomical deficits, Samuelson hinted at this same theme:

Imagine hypothetically that a President McCain had submitted a budget plan identical to Obama's. There would almost certainly have been a loud outcry: "McCain's Mortgaging Our Future." Obama should be held to no less exacting a standard.

At the end of the day, the lack of skeptical coverage by the press-- as Samuelson says -- is "not healthy for America."
