Not everyone agrees hes the Con-Man-in-Chief
The Orange County Register blog Orange Punch ^ | 1-31-2012 | Mark Landsbaum

Posted on 01/31/2012 10:34:12 AM PST by landsbaum

One of our letter writers, and we love you all, complained that our Sunday column wasn’t civil enough for his liking.

“While columnist Mark Landsbaum cannot be accused of harassing the president…”

Whew. At least we aren’t a harasser. But the writer had his complaints:...

Is that a royal "we" or have you a gerbil in your pocket?

“While columnist Mark Landsbaum cannot be accused of harassing the president…”

I don't think writing a blog makes "we" a columnist.

Once again you stick your foot in your mouth.

(A) Mark Landsbaum has been a journalist since 1972. While at the Los Angeles Times from 1978 to 1995 he was an award-winning investigative reporter, feature writer, sports writer, crime and political reporter and held a variety of other news assignments. Prior to coming to the Register and after leaving The Times, Landsbaum owned and operated a writing and marketing business, authored a book on marketing and ghost wrote and edited business books for clients.

He also wrote news and commentary for secular and Christian publications during that period and white papers for his church on bio-ethical issues including stem cell research and euthanasia. His writing for the Register is informed by his Christian faith, and the paper’s tenets of the 10 Commandments, Golden Rule and Declaration of Independence.

And he’s a Los Angeles Dodgers fan.

(B) The column on his BLOG is attacking Obama. You heard of Obama, while you're busy being the obnoxious blog-police? Obama, HE'S THE SCHMUCK WE'RE TRYING to BEAT IN NOVEMBER, but YOU are too busy whining about some EXPERIENCED CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST having "blog" in his URL.

Here's a hint: GIVE IT A REST! You're annoying everyone and distracting them from supportive writers.

He referred to his blog as a column. It isn't.

He referred to himself as "we". He isn't.

He also posts only things he has himself written, USING Free Republic as a marketing tool.

You are certainly free to support this ego-inflating and disingenuous behavior.

Me, I'll point it out.

Speak for yourself.

If he is trying to get the good word out he wouldn't be trying to drive traffic from FR to a MySpace page.
