Well, well, well, check out the New York Times actually doing their job

Over the past few days, the NYT published some excellent stories and editorials – finally exposing the Republicans true face. On Friday there was this great article titled The War On Women. Today, Frank Rich’s column about the true meaning of the “budget fight” is mind-blowing, but the cherry is the lead editorial, telling the facts about the crazy cuts those crazy people wants to make. Below the column, there’s this little note:

In coming days, at the bottom of this page, we will further explore individual penny-and-pound-foolish cuts the House Republicans want to impose, their lack of impact on the deficit and their real-world impact, often on the most vulnerable Americans.

Now, How about that?

The Ambulance-Chasing media really wanted a new Iran Hostage Crisis. President Obama didn’t cooperate. How rude!

Hi guys,

So, as Rachel Maddow said the other day, President Obama waited until the very last American was out of Libya, before he “dropped the hammer” of severe sanctions. Yesterday, the president went one step further, and said that It’s time for Gadhafi to go.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has called on Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi to leave power immediately, saying he has lost the legitimacy to rule with his violent crackdown on his own people.

With that shift Saturday, Obama dropped the careful condemnation, threats of consequences and the reminders to Gadhafi’s regime about its responsibility to avoid violence.

The president called on Gadhafi to step down for the first time, saying the Libyan government must be held accountable for its brutal crackdown on dissenters. The administration also announced new sanctions against Libya, but that was overshadowed by the sharp demand for Gadhafi’s immediate ouster.

“The president stated that when a leader’s only means of staying in power is to use mass violence against his own people, he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do what is right for his country by leaving now,” the White House said.

 

Obviously, they don’t mention the real reason the president kept relatively silent during the previous week – probably because it doesn’t fit the narrative that this shallow, clueless, ambulance-chasing media wanted to build – but the public saw hundreds of Americans getting safely out of that hell, and nothing is more important. Maybe that’s why the president is back to 50%  in yesterday’s Gallup, and the media will  have to keep looking for their next “Black Jimmy Carter” moment. Good luck with that.

Have a great Sunday, good people.
