For this week’s NewsBusters Time Machine, we look back at one of the most over-the-top examples of journalistic fawning over Barack Obama. Remember when Terry Moran compared the Democrat to George Washington and said that the presidency is a “step down” for Obama? It happened ten years ago this week.

Appearing on a Mediabistro podcast on February 20, 2009, the Nightline co-anchor rhapsodized, “I like to say that, in some ways, Barack Obama is the first President since George Washington to be taking a step down into the Oval Office.” (For those who have forgotten, George Washington, prior to becoming president, defeated the strongest military power in the world. Obama was a state and U.S. senator.)

Moran continued, “I mean, from visionary leader of a giant movement, now he’s got an executive position that he has to perform in, in a way.”

On Twitter later, On his Twitter page later, Moran tried to revise his adulation: “I said like only Washington, Obama came to office as more than a politician, a visionary leader for many. Now’s he’s got a job.”
