What a difference a candidate makes, right? At the moment one candidate has sparked an explosion of experts on a single topic—the Texas economy.
Texas has solid job numbers, as a painstakingly crafted article at the blog Political Math explains.
The U.S. overall has pathetic job numbers despite hundreds of billions of current and future taxpayer dollars spent in an effort to create jobs.
You’d think media would praise the Texas numbers, wouldn’t you? All we’ve heard from media since the first time President Barack Obama took to a national stage ahead of the 20008 General Election is jobs.
Instead progressive allied media, the greatest fans of socialism on the fact of the earth, have gone into attack mode against the governor whose state produced jobs (no mention of ‘saved’ jobs, the face-saving term applied to Obama and the Democrats).
What a contrast media have drawn in vetting Texas governor Rick Perry and Obama.
In 2008 we had a charismatic junior senator making women faint and weep when he spoke with the fervor of an evangelical. I’ve often said Obama would have made one helluva preacher.
Democrats, having gained absolute control of Congress after the November, 2006, midterms, were rubbing their hands together getting ready to celebrate having the whole government, including the White House in the hands of two longtime appropriators—Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) Everyone knew Republicans would lose the presidential race in 2008, even the Republican candidate in my opinion.
As November drew near, media actually became a cheerleader for Democrats, especially the Democrat aiming for the White House. Anyone who questioned the abilities of President Barack Obama or his (in some cases) bizarre earmarks was deemed a racist, or alternatively, a terrorist. It didn’t matter that one Obama earmark went to a defrocked priest whose work might put him in contact with children.
Writers at progressive aligned media were so eager to help Democrats that one blogger now writing for The Washington Post came up with the idea of coordinating coverage during the 2008 campaigns. He founded a secret network, Journolist, and he and his counterparts at other publications had a ball advancing the cause of the Democrats. When the young blogger’s creation was discovered, he was given a pass. He now makes the rounds on Sunday talk shows, dispensing socialist talking points on behalf of the administration he worked hard to elect.
The shills involved in Journolist were so busy helping Democrats they completely ignored a major candidate’s dalliance that included a child born out of wedlock and funny money doings in his campaign.
Only a tabloid, The National Enquirer, would talk about former senator and lifelong Democrat John Edwards’ deception, committed as he preached family values to the rest of the country and his loyal wife fought cancer.
An editor at The Atlantic in a recent column followed the meme many progressive media are pushing: “There are a lot of reasons for Texan growth, and very few of them can be laid at the feet of the governor.”
In July, 2008, that same Atlantic editor wrote: “As we all know, I will not be voting for John McCain (though this does not mean that I will be voting for Obama).” Sounds sort of like doubletalk from a used car salesman, doesn’t it? To believe that editor would not vote for Obama would be like believing the IRS will not come after your middle class carcass if you don’t pay your taxes.

Toss your Atlantic in the recycle bin because when it comes to reality, progressive media wouldn’t know the truth if it slipped up behind them and chomped down on their heels.
Here’s a dose of reality. If you want to thank someone for the chaos in this country—for the failed leadership, for the blindsiding of truth, for promoting big government, for socialization of US healthcare and for locking up American resources tighter than Ft. Knox—don't just thank Democrats.
Thank a member of big media who played a direct part in electing those who have looted our Treasury and consigned our children to debt years into the future if something isn’t changed.
By the way, I predict that Atlantic editor will vote for Obama. Again.
