Comments

Two of the biggies at Politico have a lead article today, Obama, the puppet master (emphasis mine):

President Barack Obama is a master at limiting, shaping and manipulating  media coverage of himself and his White House.

Not for the reason that conservatives suspect: namely, that a liberal press  willingly and eagerly allows itself to...

Charities squeal at math of Obama tax increases on the wealthy

As this goes to post, Wolf Blitzer is preparing carefully and cautiously for the Republican foreign policy / national security debate he will be moderating tonight on CNN.

The questions were written long ago, but they are being checked and rechecked again.  No chances can be taken tonight.
