The American electorate has been split just about 50-50 for over a decade. Polling for this year’s race shows basically a dead-heat between McCain and Obama; either party still can win this thing.
Now where the adults play – big business – money is often given to both parties in order to ensure some level of favorable treatment by whoever wins.
But where adolescents play, where tinsel-town celebrities make news yammering about taking their ball and “moving to France” if they don’t get their way, and where the media are run by those of similar immaturity, the idea of ensuring balanced campaign reporting to ensure fairness in governing seems unfathomable.
Should McCain/Palin win, they will owe nothing to the Left: Not leftist interest groups, leftist NGOs, the mainstream media – or any causes the media represents. If there is a better way to ensure that McCain/Palin govern – and move the country – further to the Right, I sure don’t know what that would be.
A victorious McCain/Palin ticket will be far freer – and far more inclined – to govern farther to the Right than they would absent this extremist clamoring from the Left. Why would they care – at all – about what the left (or the media) has to say?
How immature the media must be to continuously bloviate negatively about someone who has an even chance of winning? It isn’t as though anyone trusts the media anymore.
The current feeling in the country is to do the opposite of what the media says: Are they lying? Are their lips moving?
Yet there they go again with every cycle doing more and more damage to themselves and their stated causes.
NBC – once the bastion of fair network reporting – even had to take down two of its more popular anchors because they were so deep in the tank for Obama that they were drowning the entire network. Yet still people who ought to know better continue to pile-on, driving more and more of the Independents to McCain/Palin, raising the odds of their victory.
Even Kirsten Powers, an Obama supporter and democratic operative, now has published two columns (here and here) attacking the dems and mainstream media for their ridiculously immature attacks on Palin. And of course, Oprah has so obviously chosen race over merit and accomplishment that she is losing tens of thousands of viewers.
One almost wonders on whose side are the media… really?
And the media spending time reporting on who the rest of the world wants as President? Like – who cares?
Do you know how immature and insecure one must be to care about how total outsiders view him or her?
Does the media really think that middle America and Independents are going to choose Obama for president simply because lots of people who keep telling us they hate our country want him?
Arguably the largest enemy to the freedoms of the West, Iran, wants Obama to win. That ought to sway Peoria, right?
