During MSNBC’s coverage of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, on Thursday, daytime anchor Alex Witt seemed frustrated that the election of Barack Obama 23 days earlier — and the accompanying “global outpouring of affection, respect, hope” — had not caused an end to terrorist violence.
To quote Ms. Witt: “There had been such a global outpouring of affection, respect, hope, with the new administration coming in, that precisely these kinds of attacks, it was thought — at least hoped — would be dampered down. But in this case it looks like Barack Obama is getting a preview of things to come.”
Well, no kidding! Pardon me while I scream. I guess the terrorists are not feeling the love yet. Maybe MSNBC, after working so hard to get Obama elected, forgot to tell them he was elected.
