On yesterday’s show, we shared a good laugh over former Labor Secretary Robert Reich’s unintentionally hilarious op-ed, in which he engaged in typical liberal handwringing over the fact that “trusted arbiters of truth” have been replaced by “yell radio,” bloggers and others allegedly with ZERO credibility. Not like serious “credible” sources like the Chicago Tribune, a legendary, long-established LSM rag. They have suddenly discovered that the Orwellian named “Affordable Care Act” is the train wreck that its author, Sen. Max Baucus told us it was. From the Chicago Tribune:
The president crusaded for this law and has embraced its nickname. But he did not write the law. Congress did. Major changes are necessary — he has stipulated by his actions that this law as constituted cannot work — and Congress should legislate them for his review.
Bottom line: Let’s delay and rewrite this ill-conceived law. Congress need not start from scratch. Lawmakers can build on what all of us have learned from three years of painful trial and error. Three years of attempting, but failing, to make this clumsy monstrosity work for the American people.
Gee, it would have been nice if they had sounded this alarm before the 2012 presidential election. They didn’t. They endorsed Barack Obama for re-election, citing his “decisiveness and intellectual rigor” in handling world affairs. I think we can all see those on display in Egypt today.
I wonder if the Trib got permission for this dissing of Obama from the Oprah. I also wonder if the editors of this rag have figured out why they are going down, losing thousands of readers every single day.
