The Sound of Distant Drums

Mirabile dictu, the Yahoo main page displays a headline of "What If Bush Had Done That?" with a link to the story on Politico.

The story's lead:

"A four-hour stop in New Orleans, on his way to a $3 million fundraiser.
Snubbing the
Dalai Lama.
Signing off on a secret deal with drug makers.
Freezing out a
TV network.
Doing more fundraisers than the last president. More
golf, too.
President Barack Obama has done all of those things — and more.

What’s remarkable is what hasn’t happened. These episodes haven’t become metaphors for Obama’s personal and political character — or consuming controversies that sidetracked the rest of his agenda."

Yahoo has been an ardent anti-Bush, anti-Republican, pro-Obama website for a long time. The MSM may finally be coming to grips with the idea that they bought a pig in a poke when they backed (and covered for) Obama for president. We can only hope.
