NY Newsday made Pete King a cover boy at last!
.When the papers get outside, I’ll try to get a shot of those Post page ones voted best of the decade. I wonder if naked Giuliani in a barrel “Brother can you spare a dime” is there.
Here’s the link to those covers – none of my memorable ones but the picks confirm my ideas about the NY Post readers
I was in shock, I tell ya! Maybe Politico was right
Of course, NY Post is just being NY Post
here’s a news stand today in NYC, complete with new year hats
What a difference a year makes, huh?..
After all the propaganda that paying no attention to terrorism was “strategy”, “the system worked”, two bestest speeches on terrorism – “we are OK”, “we are a disaster” and especially “we will not rest”, (h/t The Confluence)
No fair! After running on “I am not Bush” platform, people seem to expect more from Obama than they did from Jr?
Politico is sharing with us the Obama frustration that Jr had a better time politically during similar incompetence
But it was six days before President George W. Bush, then on vacation, made any public remarks about the so-called “shoe bomber,” Richard Reid, and there were virtually no complaints from the press or any opposition Democrats that his response was sluggish or inadequate.
Oh, those wacky Democrats!
And isn’t it interesting how Politico (Obama administration) chooses the shoe bomber incident rather than 9.11 to demonstrate free rides…
Let’s face it, 9.11 not only didn’t cost W any political standing – except in the first few days until the propaganda machine was revved up – but led to historical approval rates and gushing promises of allegiance from all democrats including electoral robbed Al Gore (“he’s my Commander in Chief”).
Not even revelations of crass negligence by the 9.11 commission did anything to diminish our fearless leader’s status.
After all – he started two wars for us!
As for Jr.jr – he had a relatively free ride after Fort Hood – gushing for a bestest speech and all. Just see how tabloids rework the 9.11 cover into FEDS KNEW (instead of OBAMA KNEW)
And they were doing pretty good explaining W’s indolence as strategy to make Obama look OK for doing the same
The President is walking a fine line. Responding immediately could perhaps increase the value of such attacks – even those that are unsuccessful – and encourage other would-be terrorists. President George W. Bush also waited to respond publicly after Richard Reid, the “shoe bomber,” attempted to attack a plane by hiding explosives in his shoes in December of 2001.
Just as he did for torture – legitimizing as an acceptable political choice, Obama is now making W’s legendary incompetence look like wisdom.
So, the fact that his political opposition is a bit noisier that W’s was? Not such a big price for it
The usual suspects can’t stop giggling over Captain Underwear
The Daily News completely forgets its cheerleader role and ignores Obama’s bestest speech
and NY Post is just being itself
Only an obscure upstate paper minds bestest speech on terror
AM-NY takes notice of the consummer unfriendly Time Warner/Murdoch wars
The cable outfit that covers most of NYC threatens to drop Fox – due to – I think – the increased competition from Murdoch’s Direct TV. Fox-NY has been asking customers to protest this
