Don't hate the players, hate the game.

Even though what the First Couple is doing is unprecedented, their actions can only be successful and reap benefits if the society and culture allows it to be. I don't blame them for taking to Twitter and social media for political purposes, for they are truly being good politicians (not good as in moral, good as in being successful at being politicians). Republicans, take note.

There is an inherent danger in the blend of politics and pop culture. The Obama Administration saw pop culture as an open field into which his party could charge and attack the opposing force (GOP) from a side that they were not defending at all. The next faces of the GOP in 2014 and 2016 will need to take notes from Obama and master this realm as well.

But in order to separate politics from pop culture, the masses need to react and change it. The responsibility is on us. How do you push politicians out of pop culture? I haven't the slightest clue, but I know there are much smarter people out there than myself, including other readers of this blog.

I've been saying it for years. Barack is "Celebrity Idol" He's up on his pedestal now, but like most idols...they fall off the pedestal. THAT is what I'm waiting for. The lies WILL catch up with him.
