    The medias' job is to shine a black light on the PRESIDENT by any means necessary. That's what they do! They garner positive or negative views of oppnionaoutcome throught their trained and experienced practices of perception and deception. One has to be gifted by GOD with discernment, experienced-taught wisdom, and be intelligent enough to read between the lines, The Motives. That whole situation of President OBAMAs' seat ending up in front of the Kenyan flag was an intentional and well thought out ploy.
