Article on White House reporters reveals president as elitist
Excuse me while I barf, but the report of the ABC journalist who visited the Wesleyan School ("Reporter offers glimpse of Obama's world, 1A, Jan. 30) mirrors the sickening adulation of our current president by the mainstream media.
Thanks to your paper, we were indeed able to get a firsthand glimpse of the spectacle in an interview of Devin Dwyer, a former Wesleyan faculty member now working as ABC's Digital White House reporter.
From the story: "While on the campaign trail, I awoke one morning for a quick workout. After several minutes, a well-dressed butler walked in the gym carrying a water bottle and a towel. Trailing close behind him were two Secret Service men and the president."
What? A butler has to carry the president's water and towel -- please tell me this is an error. But no, this ABC reporter states, "At this point, I'm freaking out, you don't want to be that guy who's just staring at the POTUS, yet there he is and it's pretty cool."
What is this? Our president is a mere man elected by the people, not a god as some reporters seem to think.
Dwyer goes on to state: "I traveled with the president all over the country, but being up close and personal is a surreal opportunity. It's a rare, candid glimpse into the world of politics, where everything is calculated and nothing is an accident."
Now that I can believe, along with the fact that it cost the federal government $180,000 per hour to operate Air Force One.
No doubt this article will never make it to ABC News. However, it did help to further enlighten your readers of the fact our president is a true elitist.
