It has happened. I want to say finally, but I was not sure it ever would, yet here we are on a day when it has occurred. What is it you ask? The criticism of President Obama by the mainstream media! Yes, you have read that right, they are how taking him to task. The occasion is the breaking of a campaign promise to have the negotiations and dealings on the health care bill be a transparent process that would be televised on C-Span. But President Obama wants the final negotiations on health care reform - a reconciliation of the House and Senate versions of the bill - put on a fast track, even if that means breaking an explicit campaign promise. Breitbart TV has eight clips that show the President promising to have the debate and negotiations on C-Span. You can see for yourself at;

While it is not a surprise to me that the President would be behaving this way, what is a surprise is that the liberal media, (is that redundant?) are actually taking him to task. Particularly since they were so involved in getting him elected. While the President proceeds with his power move to take control of one sixth of the economy under the guise of health care concern, the media, I believe will be increasingly forced to stop drinking the kool aid. It is becoming clear on both sides of the aisle and in all parts of the nation what is happening under the cover of night, and it is not anything that is good for this country. Those media types who are in lock step with the President are having a hard time finding positives in this debacle of a Presidency. I guess even they are in the process of learning that elections really do have consequences. And the consequences of their candidate being elected and all they did to enable that are just beginning!
