A BUMP IN THE ROAD: “If you’re more offended by Romney saying ’47%’ than Obama saying our murdered ambassador is a ‘bump in the road,” #YouMightBeALiberal,” Jim Treacher writes at the Daily Caller:
Yeah, those guys “bumped up” against Chris Stevens and the three other Americans who were trying to protect him, didn’t they? It was, as PBS’s Gwen Ifill phrased it, a “dust-up.” I wonder what will need to happen before this whole thing is upgraded to “kerfuffle”?
Take heart, though, America. Obama admits that he’s responsible for his actions as president… “to some degree.” Just don’t think that you get to decide the degree. He does. The buck stops here, “here” being a relative concept.
And if you have a problem with that, as Obama told Steve Kroft, he’s just going to “block out any noise that’s out there.”
Remember when journalists actually wrote with a straight face copy such as this?
There have been many controversial aspects to this presidential election, but one thing is uncontroversial: that Obama’s skill as an orator has been one of the most important factors — perhaps the most important factor — in his victory.
Good times, good times.
