Newsweek has announced it is ceasing publication at year's end, and the New York Times' David Carr writes an obit.
Like the president it has --mostly-- fawned over, Newsweek no longer interests the majority of Americans. Even those who might pick it up in the doctor's office won't buy it. It has tried all sorts of stunts, and all sorts of absurd drama, but it cannot do its basic job against rising competition. It failed. It will go away.
Like the president. The post-debate euphoria of the left will fade today as it begins to notice, as it did after Joe Biden's debacle, that their cheers on Tuesday night did not much impress the middle of the country, and that the president has ben reduced to making binder jokes while the rest of the country talks about Libya, gas prices --and the lack of an agenda for an Obama second term. (Timothy Dalrymple explain the key debate dynamic that has greatly benefitted Mitt Romney.)
Incredibly, the president is now trying to run as an energy guy in certain counties of Ohio, and the Wall Street Journal leads the laughter.
And the focus on Libya --where the president is caught in "a bright shining lie" according to Victor Davis Hanson-- is wearing down even his staunchest supporters.
You can feel, and see, the energy draining from the Obama campaign even as it swells on the the Romney/Ryan siide. The Rasmussen Reports daily tracking which shows Romney maintining his two point lead and a Rassmussen Ohio poll showing the Buckeye State at a standstill post-debate, will further demoralize the Chicago gang.

No Great loss with the disappearance of newsweak.I won’t even miss it.
Great Headline, Hugh. LOL!
Under BaraqqiCare the doctors will be so desperate, they’ll be burning those old Newsweaks for office heat in the winter.
It might have helped their fortunes if a publication called “Newsweek” reported news rather than spew leftwing propaganda written at a junior high school level.
Another dinosaur sinks into the tarpit
Ahhhhhh the liberal media.....they ran their Titanic into an iceberg and now they bravely stand on the deck telling everybody they wanted a refreshing dip anyway.
I haven’t read that rag in more years than I can remember. I’ll be so glad when it and obàma are both history!
Best to treat every election like this one from now on. Are you lurking here Reince? Don't try to run another dumb@ss like McLame or you'll just be another RNC loser like Steele.
