The media don’t even try anymore. They are leftists. Everyone knows it. Those who still get their news from major news outlets need to stop pretending it’s not true. The emperor is naked. But for those of you who still might be in denial or, for whatever reason, like to relish in the fact that we’ve been right about them all along, here’s yet another example. CBS political director John Dickerson, who apparently moonlights with Slate.com as chief political correspondent (that tells you all you need to know right there), says that Obama needs to “go for the throat” of the GOP.
From Fox News:
A column published on Slate.com over the weekend urged President Obama to “pulverize” and destroy his Republican opponents — even “go for the throat” — in order to “cement his legacy.”
The words of advice, though, didn’t come from a Democratic strategist or a former member of the president’s inner circle.
The nearly 2,000-word playbook came from CBS News’ political director John Dickerson.
Dickerson, who also works as chief political correspondent for Slate, had some unusually harsh words for the minority party as Obama takes the oath and launches into his second term.
To hear Dickerson tell it, Republicans have proved so intransigent that Obama’s only option is to obliterate them. The subhead on the article said, “Obama must declare war on the Republican Party” if he wants to transform American politics.
"There’s no indication that the president’s clashes with House Republicans will end soon," Dickerson wrote. "The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.”
Aren’t you glad to know we have unbiased people like that acting as the medium between what actually happens and what the public knows? As an aside, I think what he actually means by “GOP” is “The Constitution”. After all, that’s Obama’s real enemy. It’s just much easier to demonize Republicans than it is the Constitution.
