Skip to comments.NV newspaper: Obama a “narcissistic amateur,” “embarrassment,” “incompetent”
Posted on 11/02/2012 10:34:15 AM PDT by Justaham
And those are the kinder thoughts that the editors of the Las Vegas Review-Journal had for Barack Obama in their lead editorial yesterday. Those conclusions refer to Obamas overall performance on the economy and foreign policy. When they get down to specifics on Benghazi, the anger pulses through every sentence (via Twitchy):
The official explanation for the inadequate security? This administration didnt want to offend the sensibilities of the new radical Islamic regime which American and British arms had so recently helped install in Libya.
The official explanation for why Obama administration officials watched the attack unfold for seven hours, refusing repeated requests to send the air support and relief forces that sat less than two hours away in Italy? Silence.
An open discussion of these issues, of course, would lead to difficult questions about the wisdom of underwriting and celebrating the so-called Arab Spring revolts in the first place. While the removal of tyrants can be laudable, the results show a disturbing pattern of merely installing new tyrannies theocracies of medieval mullahs who immediately start savaging the rights of women (including the basic right to education) and who are openly hostile to American interests.
When Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney promptly criticized the security failures in Benghazi, the White House and its lapdog media jumped all over him for another gaffe, for speaking out too promptly and too strongly. Prompt and strong action from the White House on Sept. 11 might have saved American lives, as well as Americas reputation as a nation not to be messed with. Weakness and dithering and flying to Las Vegas the next day for celebrity fund-raising parties are somehow better?

More and more newspapers are endorsing Romney...amny of them that endorsed Obama in 2008. Obama’s record is clear...and dismal. His actions rergaridng Benghazi are criminally negligent at best...and treacherous and treasonous if some of the allegations bear out (ie. using Al Quida to run guns).
Here’s a list of links that explain how critical this election is and the conditions surrounding it:

Now THAT’S journalism. Bravo Mr. Morrissey.
OK, is the LVRJ a major publication?
Normally conservative or liberal?
The editorials tend to be fairly conservative or libertarian.
It may be my faulty memory but I don’t recall so many papers and groups supporting Republicans in the past.
The LVRJ i think is owned by the Stephens Media Group. I’ve lived here a while and they seem to lean right in editorials. The other paper here the LasVegaSun is in my opinion a very lefty paper. The LVSun is owned by the (jewish) Greenspun family. The Greenspuns are friends with the Clintons.
The LVSun is now just an insert to the main paper due to some joint operating agreement that has been existence for quite some time.
