“Of course, if there had been a Republican President in office, this would be front page news across the nation...But, since Obama is King and bad things cant be blamed on him, this will be swept up and forgotten about in a day or so.”
Good post. This reminds me of the homeless problem back in the 80’s. When Bush the Elder was president homelessness was front page news across the nation. But the very moment Bill Clinton was elected, it suddenly ceased to be a problem and the media went silent. As you said, the whole topic was swept under the rug and never heard from again.
‘The very moment BilL Clinton was elected, homelessness ceased to be a problem.’ It would be very interesting to make a side-by-side list of problems that were huge under Republicans only to cease to exist the moment a Democrat was elected. For that matter, to make a list of all things that used to be a problem and then were dropped (ie ‘fear-fads’).
