“Pres. Obama: The Ms. O Factor or The Lack There-of???”

Wow…  There is some really exciting stuff going on – on the political landscape – so lets get right at it…
Pres. Obama was catapulted into the forefront by an early endorsement by Ms. O, which some believe gave him the edge to winning the Democratic Nomination and the Presidency…  

Culturally Speaking, black folk tend to stick together when it comes to “black over white” (leadership) positions…  This kind of loyalty and commitment is often short lived if their support seems to be taken for granted…  That said, from the looks of things, Ms O will not have the same influence on this Presidential election as last… 

Wow…

Ms O, is struggling to keep her OWN network afloat as a result she does not have the followship as she did four years ago…  Pres. Obama has also moved so far to the center he would be standing on Ms O’s slip this time around as opposed to standing on her shoulders…  So, is Ms O totally sidelined this election frenzy or can she catch a little wind to help propell her new network into the black???   This is a question whose answer is totally up in the air at this junction in the road…  Now Ms OWN, like all the other networks, survive on viewership and in order to have viewers they have to air what people are interested in watching…  During this political clash of titans, Pres. Obama is the favorite over all the other contenders which,  from a news and blogger perspective, makes him very boring to cover for the next six months – until the Convention…  I am sure Pres. Obama realize this therefore – “sucker punches” will be the order of the day – in order for him to stay in the news…   

 {Side bar – It is about time that Pres. Obama start swinging back…  He certainly took his share of “sucker punches”  for the first three years starting from “Justice Roberts” blundering his “Oath of Office” to last month threat of  “shutting down the Government…”}   

 Wow…  Major news outlets such as CNN and Fox are going to be following the Rep candidates around like vultures…   Ms O, will not be a factor unless she takes off the gloves and jump into this frey with her fist swinging in both directions…  Ms O, could barrow a line from “The Don’s” playbook on how to play both sides…  The Don made a million dollar bet on both fighter in 1997 Holyfield/Tyson fight…  I believe the odds were 13-1 in favor of Tyson…  As we all know, Holyfield won and the rest is history…  Did someone say, “who let them dogs out???”  🙂    That is what I call a win win situation…  Ms O will have to play bothsides the same way…  Wow…   The first thing Ms O will have to do is not endorse anyone and treat all the candidates the same…  As personal friends of the Obamas, this might be a little difficult but ( first big phat  from a business perspective but in the room) from a business perspective, this is the only way to be sucessful…  Now in the vain of keeping it exciting, it is my belief that only Rep Candidate that can give Pres. Obama a run for his money is “Jon Huntsman…”      An Obama/Huntsman debate on the Ms OWN network would be paramount for the simple reason is that Pres. Obama endorsed Jon Huntsman as an Ambassador to China…   It would be very tough for Pres. Obama to “sling mud” at someone he felt was a “great guy” to represent USa to the Chinese…   Ms O, can use her new found platform to recruit some unsung news talent to make this aspect of her network very profitable… 

Hummmmm…  Did anyone say, “Bryant Gumbel??? 

Wow…  Of course the election is not the only thing Ms OWN could or should be airing on her network because there is a lot of people that do not follow politics…  Before I go there, please allow me to make an observation to something Ms O was instrumental in proving… 

 I wrote a post, “Pres. Obama: The Science of Observation,” where I stated,

” So you see we sometimes see the mountain instead of the mole hill…  So what does this have to do with “global warming???”   Well global warming, even though it is very serious, it might not be as complicated as we are making it out to be…  Remember two plus two equal four not eight…   So lets just take a look at what is really going on…  Like I said, I am no scientist but if  something is getting warmer you have to find a way to turn off the heat…  Well from every lecture I hear the scientist give they all say the same thing, ” the ice cap is melting at an astronomical rate!!!”  And that this rate has really increase in the last four decades…  Then my question is what were we doing four decades ago that we are not doing today???   That to me seems to be the “air in the tires” solution we should be applying…  Well one thing for sure that I know we were doing four decades ago is; “we burned coal…”  Oh wow,  could it be that we have cleaned the air too much; that the natural layer of smoke that use too cover the earth is no longer there therefore causing the reverse effect of warming instead of balance of  warmth and cold…”   

Wow…  Ms O helped prove this theory by giving away coupons for free “KFC grilled chicken” around the United States in May of 2009…  http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=7527626&page=1   Kfc sold out of grilled chicken in several outlets around the country which meant they were grilling lots and lots of chicken…  http://www.drsusanrubin.com/oprahs-free-kfc-meal-can-be-hazardous-to-your-health/   As a result of all the grilling Kfc produce lots more pollutant which I believe resulted in a very cold winter in 2010…  This is the science of observation and now we can observe how much warmer the nation is this winter 2011/2012…  Ms O, knowingly or unknowingly contributed to a very much needed experiment…  I think Al Gore and the scientific community should look at this study to conduct similar experiments (on a smaller scale of course)… 

Wow…  This is some exciting stuff…  Now back to Ms O as a factor as a network…  Ms O, in my opinion, has a golden opportunity to expand her viewership by “taking the limits off…”  Ms O could take a page from “Tyler Perry’s” playbook – called “Encompassing every aspect of our Cultural Landscape…”  Tyler realize that there are lots of “invisible people” in our society who never see anyone that “looks like them” on TV…   Tyler’s genius is again an example of the “Science of Observation…”  I have seen lots of  Tyler’s plays from the very beginning – in the ninties…  It does not take a “rocket scientist” to see that most of the people his audiances are “just ordinary folks” from every walk of life…  Tyler did not forget this and began to showcase these folks  in all of his endeavors…    

Wow…  This is some exciting stuff…  So now what can Ms O factor in to her OWN network that will put her over the top as a new force to reckon with???  So if I apply my  on approach of the “Science of Observation,” to this question, I would say, Ms O should reflex our “cultural landscape” from the nth degree…  More specifically, I believe she should have shows that cover every group of people that are beckoning to be heard and seen…  Of course, these show would have to be aired in proper time slots but (oh wow another big phat “urban model” but in the room) a show that explores the plight  and rise of “urban models” could easily be aired almost anytime of the afternoon or evening…  Not only would this be a big draw of viewers,  it could also help to stimulate the economy…  What do I mean by this, “urban modelling”  has become the primary source of income for lots of minority women in these bad economical times…  A show that promotes this genre of modeling could really be the next new reality show which our society crave… 

Wow… This is some exciting stuff… 

Do you feel me??? 

I know you do…
Let me hear you say, “yes, yes, yes we can…”
