Again, with the Beckster, I wonder if all those white folks who loved and raised Obama from the time he was a wee bebe knew he hated their immortal souls? I mean, does he hate the white half of himself? Does he, in fact, call himself white racial slurs out of malice? When he does bad things or makes mistakes does he blame “the whitey within?” Um … PUH-LEAZE!

So Scholar Henry Louis Gates and police Sergeant James Crowley finally met, face to face, over beer and other snack items at the White House with President Obama and, of course, Vice President “Mad Dog” Joe Biden.

Think you see too much of the president? Too bad! He’s breaking all kinds of records of how much Obama you can cram in one media hole. Apparently, you can cram a lot.

From Forbes:

President Barack Obama appears to be breaking every record kept on U.S. presidential press coverage. Over the first six months of this year, he was cited in a staggering 1.1 million stories across mainstream, Internet and social media–an average of 6,100 references a day. That’s more than triple what Obama’s last two predecessors, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, got in the mainstream press during their first six months.

The president is tagged on 216,000 YouTube videos and mentioned in an average 15,000 blog posts a week, according to Icerocket.com.

Mark Knoller, a CBS News White House correspondent who has covered every president since Gerald Ford, says Obama’s ubiquity is unprecedented. In the first half of the year, says Knoller, the president delivered 281 speeches, gave 88 interviews to journalists, hosted 30 news conferences and emceed 14 town hall meetings. He gave an entire day’s worth of access to ABC’s Nightline and has held conference calls with bloggers.
