QOTD: "As you probably know by now, the New York Times decided they had indeed overplayed their hand, and decided to refund most of Obama's credibility by stealth-editing their harsh judgment into "The administration has now lost all credibility on this issue"...

...The best thing Obama has going for him is perfectly illustrated by the Times stealth edit: the media will never assemble a Narrative tying all of these scandals and outrages together. They'll always break even the worst stories down into little isolated islands of controversy. They'll always say they question his credibility on one specific issue, rather than treating him like a Republican and writing meta-pieces about how he's constantly being caught lying, and it's absurd for the most powerful man on Earth to pretend he's helpless, or for a man who claimed to be smarter than all of his advisers to claim he only knows what he reads in the papers, and how everyone around him seems to "spontaneously" decide to abuse their authority in ways that further his political ambitions." --John Hayward
