Support for the young President among his media friends is beginning to peel away as Powerline points out in these two posts. Here … and here. Then there’s this link from Instapundit that details the growing disenchantment among the media elite. Jennifer Rubin gives the rundown.
They may need a support group before the month is out. They could gather in New York or Washington where many victims reside. The meetings would start: “I’m Maureen [or David]. I’m a duped Barack voter. And I’m mad.”
The ranks indeed are filling with the disaffected and the disappointed — Chris Buckley, Maureen Dowd, David Brooks, David Gergen, and even that gynecological sleuth and blogger Andrew Sullivan. And then there is the very angry Marty Peretz. Their complaints are varied but expressed with equal amounts of remorse and bitterness. They all have been done wrong by Barack.
And as if that’s not bad enough … Chris Matthews sounds like he’s had enough too … at least with the pork laden Omnibus Bill. A promise is a promise, Mr President.
Perhaps Chris should read Jim Geraghty over at National Review, and then he would understand everything Obama comes with an expiration date.
The expiration date of some very warm milk sitting in the hot sun!
Peeling away? I would thing more on the line of rats deserting a sinking ship.
Unbelievable. That is the only word that comes to mind. When i finally see the media challenging the realities, as i wished would have happened before the election, the response is let's move on??? Where is the hope in that? God help us all.
Just another case of closing the barn door long after the horses have run free.
Matthews should be on his knees begging the country for forgiveness, not pulling a Barney Frank "criticize the problem you created" tour.
