Yesterday, the Washington Post published a story about Mitt Romney supposedly bullying a presumably gay student when he was in high school, way back in 1965 (nearly 50 years ago). Today, that story is falling apart and causing a lot of questions the WaPo might find uncomfortable.
All you need to do to get on Obama’s enemies list is to donate to Romney… then he’ll publish your name publicly and call you names:
Richard Nixon’s “enemies list” appalled the country for the simple reason that presidents hold a unique trust. Unlike senators or congressmen, presidents alone represent all Americans. Their powers—to jail, to fine, to bankrupt—are also so vast as to require restraint. Any president who targets a private citizen for his politics is de facto engaged in government intimidation and threats. This is why presidents since Nixon have carefully avoided the practice.
Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules. This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled “Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney’s donors.” In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having “less-than-reputable records,” the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that “quite a few” have also been “on the wrong side of the law” and profiting at “the expense of so many Americans.”
Not that it’s any great surprise to anyone that hasn’t been living under a rock, but here it is:
When David Brock applied for tax-exempt status for Media Matters for America, he told the IRS exactly who his group would be fighting against: businesses, wealthy Americans and conservative Christians.
“Media Matters for America (MMA) believes that news reporting and analysis by the American media, with its eye on profit margin and preservation of the status quo, has become biased,” read the group’s application, obtained by The Daily Caller, “It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote corporate interests, the rights of the wealthy, and a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology.”
The defense of ObamaCare is getting ever more desperate. Now they’re even turning to obvious logical fallacies (and even borderline falsehoods), trying to argue that the Justices might have “misunderstood” the oral arguments.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A possible misunderstanding about President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul could cloud Supreme Court deliberations on its fate, leaving the impression that the law’s insurance requirement is more onerous than it actually is.
Note to self: from this point forward, trust Philadelphia papers about as much as you trust Pravda (emphasis added).
A group of local investors bought Philadelphia Media Network Inc., the parent company of The Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com, Monday for $55 million, with up to an additional $10 million in working capital for operations. The deal represents the fourth ownership change for the media properties in less than six years.
Led by businessman Lewis Katz, 70, and insurance executive and Democratic leader George E. Norcross III, 56, the group purchased PMN from a collection of hedge funds and other financial firms that have owned the daily newspapers and their related website since they emerged from bankruptcy in October 2010.
