When MSNBC is hammering the president things have got to be pretty darn bad. I think a lot of journalists who long thought that they were on the “good list” now recognize that even they, even the guilded messengers who delivered Obama the White House, can be tossed aside in the name of consolidating presidential power.
Mr. Biden I wish I could trust you, but I just don’t. That you would call on the help of the “legitimate” media—read, #oldmedia—explicitly, to push your agenda just stinks. It’s not like you have to ask anyway. But given that the White House appears to be losing the debate fairly solidly, I suppose it’s time to boost the troops.
The Obama administration evidently decided that voter reaction counted for more than the reaction of labor union supporters. Children will still be allowed to work on family farms as they have since before the beginning of the country.
