Giddy CNN Correspondent: ‘I Feel Like I Should Pinch Myself Right Now’(Obamaton Media Drooling)
Newsbusters ^ | 01/21/13 | Matt Hadro

CNN correspondent Jim Acosta was positively giddy while covering President Obama's inauguration parade on Monday afternoon, and didn't hold back his feelings on-air.

"You know, I feel like I should pinch myself right now, Wolf. I can't believe I have this vantage point of history in the making," Acosta gushed. Video below the break.

Acosta later added that "It's good to be the President. It's almost like being a rock star on every street corner of Washington on this day."

Unfortunately, Acosta has not been alone at CNN in exhibiting extreme enthusiasm for President Obama. During the inauguration parade, Wolf Blitzer raved about "history over here" and shouted out and waved at Obama as he passed by.

As NewsBusters reported earlier, CNN reporter Tom Foreman made it a personal task to write a letter to the president every day of Obama's first term. In one of his over 1,400 missives, he called Obama "such a kidder" for ignoring him and wondered why the Secret Service had not tried to put a stop to his strange activity.

CNN has been far from the only network to feature left-leaning correspondents feeling giddy over the second Obama term, however. NBC's Al Roker shouted and cheered as the president walked past him and later begged Vice President Joe Biden to shake his hand. His NBC colleagues cheered his supposed triumph afterward.

Over at ABC, reporter Bill Weir, oohed over the festivities and pronounced that people attending the inauguration were "counting on history to keep them warm." Four years ago, Weir was even more effusive, proclaiming that local seagull birds were "awed" at Obama being sworn in.

Meanwhile, less convenient news is being ignored. The media are devoting very little coverage to the fact that more than $50 million has been spent on inauguration activities during wartime (a big no-no to the liberal press during the Bush years) and that rapper Lupe Fiasco was kicked off the stage at a DC concert after criticizing Obama.

A transcript of the Acosta segment, which aired on January 21 on CNN Presidential Inauguration 2013 coverage at 3:47 p.m. EST, follows:

JIM ACOSTA: And obviously, this is the moment that everybody is waiting for on Inauguration Day when the President and the First Lady step out of their limo and walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. You know, I feel like I should pinch myself right now, Wolf. I can't believe I have this vantage point of history in the making.

WOLF BLITZER: You're literally what, about 15, 20 feet away from the President?

ACOSTA: I'm probably a good – I would say 50 feet away from the President right now, Wolf. Very, very close.

(...)

ACOSTA: But one thing you can say, Wolf. It's good to be the President. It's almost like being a rock star on every street corner of Washington on this day because every time he hits a new intersection, the cheers go up on both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue, and for the President it's just a whole new group of Americans to greet as he makes his way towards the White House. And I have to tell you, it's been pretty exciting to watch all of this unfold from the back of this flatbed truck.

Dear CNN--wipe your chin. But then, I guess they have every reason to be excited--they helped re-elected the Failure. The celebration of lies over truth, of weakness and failure over leadership and the reveling of the woefully ignorant continues unabated!

I wonder how Ms. Acosta would feel if he got the Alinsky treatment.

Wolf, I have to tell you, it’s been pretty exciting to watch all of this unfold from the back of this railroad boxcar. Where are we going anyhow? Wolf? Anyone?

Don’t these morons see how they’re literally embarrassing themselves? On international TV, no less?

My God, why don’t they just line up to give the little mulatto queerbait a hummer on air and get it over with.

Wolf. I can’t believe I have this vantage point of history in the making,” Acosta gushed.

Mr Acosta, are you an American?
Is watching the history of America’s destruction unfold make you happy?

What's the matter - can't you imagine the same excitement being bestowed upon Mitt Romney had he been the one walking past the media?

I believe that like hysterical two year olds they are so excited that they are manipulating their genitals in a forelorn attempt to calm themselves.

Especially considering his opponent was so lame to being with, that does speak volumes.

Al should be careful about getting too excited, jumping up and down, etc.; he might mess his pants again.

These useful idiots are going to suffer and die like the majority of people in this country. They’re just too slow witted to figure it out.

"hysterical"

Libs have always been suckers for megalomaniacal types like Obama. They can't help themselves. The urge to kneel down and cower is inherent in the lib psyche.

Yes, Libs loved Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Castro. You may be on to something!

Weather Channel was purchased by NBCUniversal in 2008.
Since then it's become a blatant tool for promoting “climate change” and similar progressive doctrines.

This year they began adding hurricane-type names to trivial winter storms. It's working, I saw an internet post by a young mind full of mush talking about how climate change has produced the need for watching these “ever more deadly storms”.
