JENNIFER RUBIN: Media Sycophants Didn’t Help Obama. “They have never given President Obama the sort of scrutiny he got last night. They have mouthed the president’s false talking points (‘a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich’), egging the president on. When Mitt Romney debunked these easily, Obama had nowhere to go. He looked lost without the protective blanket of compliant media and over-eager left-wing bloggers.”
Well, those media are already preparing their “comeback kid” storyline for next time. But he’ll have to do better than last night for them to roll that one out.
