Views From An Alter-nate Universe

I have always thought that Jonathan Alter was an idiot. He has outdone himself now though.

Obama Miracle is White House Free of Scandal: Jonathan Alter

I have nothing to add, the article speaks for itself.

(As a bonus, look at the comments)

great title, Chuck.

the article's typical; Obama Love at its best.

No scandal; expensive trips around the world for the Mrs....expensive trips to NYC for dinner when Americans are starving........flying in private instructors from Chicago.....insulting cops in the Harvard incident (that prof who had cops come to his door, I can't remember his name) before getting the facts........lying about knowing Bill Ayers....expecting us to believe he never heard Jeremiah Wright say anything remotely unAmerican.......expecting us to believe he's STILL looking for that church he said he and Mrs. O would be attending as soon as they settled in D.C. and found one..Mr. Obama's non support for poor relatives living here on the dole...

gad, we could all go on and on; but Mr. Alter's blinders get in the way. THAT is a scandal.

Z, kind of tingling leg moment.

He better stop using what ever it is that he is using.

Look at Alter's background: 1) Chicago native (he was born into the Obama/Dem camp) Harvard grad (not an institution of conservatism or traditional American ideals). Was an editor at Newsweak (the rapidly failing liberal news mag) He was a firece critic of Geoge W. Bush. Not that Bush didn't need it sometimes, it just proves Alter is not fair and balanced in his judgements. For example, I found this quote on that news link you provided, "If the media put one quarter the effort into investigating Obama's nefarious actions as they did with GWB, the guy would have been impeached by now." The MSM of which Alter is a part, is simply the house organ of the Democratic Party.

Ticker, you can bet it is not his brain

Alligator, he has always been an idiot. Although that is redundant for the MSM

Ticker said...

Naw, Chuck I was referring to what ever drug he was using. What ever it is has already destroyed what few live brain cells he might have had.

Alligator said...

Ticker - are you saying that Jonathon has been Alter(ed) by some extracurricular drug activity? Sorry for the lame humor but I couldn't resist.

To be fair and balanced, I will say one good thing about Alter. Right after 9/11 he wrote a piece saying maybe we needed to re-examine the possibility of using torture to prevent heinous acts like this again. I haven't checked, but I wouldn't be surprised if he recanted on that point of view.

Chuck said...

Ticker, I got it. I meant he is not using his brain

Alligator, I think he wrote a piece recently very critical of Bush on this. Typical of the left, anything goes - until Bush does it.
