Our Media is a Wonder
Our media is a wonder because it is focusing on “Romney Accuses Obama of doubling down” … when media should ask such tough questions as, “What did Obama know about the attack at Benghazi, and when did he know it?” When Romney becomes the news story about the Libyan debacle rather than the President of the United States or the Secretary of State, then we should wonder what amazing transition occurred since the days of “Junk Yard Dog” Sam Donaldson. Donaldson, whom I am convinced is a rabid communist, had no problems demanding answers of Ronald Reagan. I never liked Donaldson, but I respected his tenacity in wanting to get to the bottom of things. Apparently, those days are long gone.
Today, the media is a wonder because not long after the Libyan event, Romney asked common sense questions any engaged citizen might ask, if he or she had half a chance. The death of an American Ambassador didn’t get near the attention that Romney did. Who in the hell does Romney think he is? How dare he ask such questions?
The media is a wonder because during a campaign speech late last week, Mitt Romney said, “There were more questions that came out last night because the Vice President directly contradicted the testimony of State Department officials.” Members of the media never made that statement; it wasn’t media who demanded any answers.
The media is a wonder because immediately after the Vice Presidential debate, no one from the media swarmed Little Joey Biden demanding that he confirm or clarify his bombshell statements during the debate: The President didn’t know; the Vice President didn’t know; the Intelligence community gave erroneous information to the White House; it was a state department function.
Mr. Romney is correct to observe, “American citizens have a right to know just what’s going on.” The problem is, however, American citizens are not likely to learn much of anything from the media, beyond the fact that Mr. Romney is a butinsky who should just shut the hell up. Who in the hell does he think he is?
What a wonder the media is!
