Exactly. Not that we needed it, but this shutdown is a perfect measuring stick for media bias and double standards.

The GOP are being portrayed as absolutists yet they are the ones proposing, modifying and, as a minimum, explaining what they are seeking.

Obama, on the other hand, starts with pointing fingers and never stops. He’s rejecting offers before they are even made while accusing the other side of bad faith (his sense of irony has always been quite weak).

It would help all sides and observers if they would state the obvious: this is strictly about ego. The stories about Obama resenting the Obamacare nickname are risible: he is completely wrapped up in it as a tribute to his munificent greatness. It also explains, quite easily, why he will never accede willingly to shelving it.

There is no double standard.

Good for the Revolution, harmful to America = good, Bad for the Revolution and helpful to America = bad.

The media has one, clear, consistent standard and they never vary. No double standard at all.
