-Obama is choosing to be weak-
By Clive Crook
There is a hilarious cartoon here. It depicts Obooma tearing off his Superman suit to reveal a pussycat on his chest.

The news that fits its times
Los Angeles Times
by Editorial
Here are some things we learned this week: Barack Obama still smokes the occasional cigarette when his children aren't looking.
---
Some say that ‘occasional cigarette’ is a media lie, Obama has been a chain smoker for years, and not one journalist asked to see his lung x-rays! What sort of judgment does Zero have if he still smokes? He wants to exclude some people from healthcare? The exclusion should start with him, he must be deadhead stupid to continue his tobacco addiction, or he is just a weakling.

The MSM dithers about selected distraction stories while a meaty story is ignored. Our fearless leader being a former ACORN employee probably has nothing to do with the dodge?

Who killed ACORN probe?
Washington Times, by Matthew Vadum

Who told House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Michigan Democrat, to lay off the radical activist group ACORN? The 23-term congressman, who has been enamored of the aggressively partisan group for years, gave a truly odd explanation last week (Snip) We may have been naive to believe that Mr. Conyers, whose famously obstreperous wife Monica, a Detroit City Council member, pleaded guilty Friday to felony bribery charges, really wanted to examine ACORN's underbelly.

Get-m young and bring-m up right. Things will never change until dishonest journalism ends. There are no moral or ethical standards for students to emulate.

ADDICTION is the key word here 4:13. FYI, nicotine is harder to kick than alcohol. Not being able to quit doesn't make you a "weakling." It makes you and addict. What puzzles me is why you care. With all the negative anti-Obama rhetoric that is flung around on this site, it seems you'd be urging him to smoke more.

6:33 AM-How about Obama’s crack habit? Is that more difficult to kick than nicotine or alcohol? Either way it sounds like Obama should be in rehab. Millions of people have quit smoking. Obama is a weakling and addicted, and the media should have questioned his drug habits before the election. The whitewash the Halfrican received was dishonest journalism, and everyone knows that now. How does an addicted person criticize anyone for anything? Hypocrisy on display again; the MSM keeps their blinders in place as they ride into the sunset. Rest easy folks, Joe Camel is on the job, he is just outside the door blowing smoke rings.

Re: “What puzzles me is why you care.”
What puzzles me is why you are so puzzled about someone’s puzzlement at the lack of conversation about an addicted president? Obama looks unhealthy with blue/purple lips. Is that from nicotine addiction? You would think just one journalist would want to see a full health report. That is a puzzlement! Puzzle on that for awhile.

More Chicago Violence: 9-Year-Old Shot Dead While Washing Her Dog...

Another child killed in Chicago, where is the outrage? Obama parties on, Rev. Wright plays golf with his white neighbors, only at election time is the plight of the former slaves trotted out before the cameras. The Democrats have run Chicago for decades, yet the black on black crime rises, the schools rot, and the blacks fall farther behind, instead of the progress they are promised.

What happened to the Obama promise that these crimes would no longer be tolerated. More welfare funds for the blacks is a perennial promise for their vote, whether the voter is alive to collect the new welfare money is another story. It is difficult to feel sorry for people who thought the color of Obama’s skin meant a new life for them. What would make them think a fraud being half-white and half-black, held any special meaning? Just like everyone else, they can thank the media for the great cruel hoax of the century. Nothing will change for them if history keeps repeating itself, and the press fails to point out nothing ever changes for the Democrat’s welfare slaves. Keep voting for Democrats folks, it’s doing you a world of good. That is, if killing little girls is okay with everybody?

Wikipedia needs a new slogan ... Perhaps, "You report, we decide."

Wikipedia posts on Rohde's kidnapping were deleted
New York Times

A dozen times, user-editors posted word of David Rohde's kidnapping on Wikipedia's page on the New York Times reporter, only to have it erased. "The sanitizing was a team effort, led by Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia, along with Wikipedia administrators and people at The Times," reports Richard Perez-Pena.

Biz Reporters Get the Boot
@ Fitz & Jen: It's a remarkable time for business-related reporting and coverage. That's why it is very disheartening to learn that [more than 250 business journalists lost their jobs] in the first 6 months of this year, according to the Carolina Business News Initiative at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Given how the business journalists missed forecasting the current economic downturn, what purpose do they serve? After the fact excuses?
