DAVID BRODER: End of Obama’s Honeymoon: “Among those who follow government closely, there has been an unmistakable change in tone in the past few weeks. These are not little Rush Limbaughs hoping that Obama fails. They are politicians and journalists measuring him with the same skeptical eye they apply to everyone else. . . . Meantime, on the main challenge — the economy — the criticism has begun to infect the mainstream media as well as the conservative wing.”

I think one reason for the demonization of Rush Limbaugh — and, even more significantly, the coordinated attack on pro-Obama critics — has been an effort to forestall this development. I also think it’s backfired.
