On October 1, Katharine Weymouth was replaced as publisher of The Washington Post by Fred Ryan. This is one of the bigger changes by the new owner, Jeff Bezos. The Washington Post recently broke the story that Governor McAuliffe’s top aid offered then Senator Phil Puckett a job to stay in the Senate. This embarrasses… More Has the Post Changed?
I kid you not. In today’s Washington Post, their lead editorial is about the millions of people who are now receiving notices from their insurance companies that their health insurance plans are being cancelled and how that is somehow a good thing. Under the headline of “Coverage under health-care law may change — for the… More WashPo Says People Losing Their Health Insurance Plans Is A Good Thing
That may as well have been the headline of today’s Washington Post endorsement of Terry McAuliffe for Virginia Governor. They basically took their template from four years ago when they endorsed Creigh Deeds and replaced Bob McDonnell’s name with Ken Cuccinelli’s while leaving in things about how mean and divisive and partisan the Republican is… More WashPo: Vote McAuliffe Because We Hate Cuccinelli (And All Republicans)
In any election year, you get dirty pool and negative attacks. It’s not right, and it turns people off from politics in general, but this is what we have to deal with. EW Jackson’s amazing win at the RPV Convention on Saturday was inspired, and he has strived for two years to unite and expand… More Dem/WaPo attacks on Jackson dishonest, unbecoming, and wrong
On the page before today’s WashPo editorial claiming that Mitt Romney’s campaign is an insult to voters (seriously), their ombudsman addressed readers’ complaints about their endorsements being more left than right of center. The Post began regularly endorsing candidates for president in 1976, with Jimmy Carter. The Post editorial board hasn’t endorsed a Republican for the Oval Office since,… More WashPo Ombudsman — Post Has Never Endorsed GOPer for Prez, VA Gov.
Get a load of this malarkey (to quote our ever quotable soon-to-be former Vice President.) Here are the numbers from the latest ABC / WashPo poll that gives Obama a +3 advantage over Romney nationally, 49%-46%. Just for good measure, we include both their likely and registered voters figures as well as what the numbers… More New WashPo Poll Made Me Laugh Like Biden
The WashPo’s poll last week showing that Obama is outpacing Romney in swing states 52-41 apparently has some problems. “Out of 929 registered voters in the new poll, 161 live in one of these eight states, with a margin of sampling error of eight points.” In other words, on average, they only polled 20 people… More Hey, WashPo – What’s The Margin Of Error For A Poll That Only Samples 20 Registered Voters Statewide?
Hey, if President Obama is doing so well that the media is declaring the election to be over except for the actual voting, then why is the Washington Post’s The Root blog running an article entitled: Will Romney Reach out to Racists in Debates? This is a new low, even for the juvenile delinquents at… More WashPo Blog The Root: Will Romney Go For The Racist Vote?
It isn’t news by now that the WashPo typically ignores itself when something they’ve previously published doesn’t jive with the narrative that they’re pushing on people at the moment. At least in the past it has been the news side and editorial side or national desk vs. the local desk being in conflict. This may… More WashPo Ignoring Itself Again
Silly WashPo. As much as you wish that President Obama has put Virginia away, it just isn’t so and even the president’s campaign knows that. He was in state today as well as last Friday and Joe Biden was here within the past week, too. You don’t spend time and money in a state you’ve… More Obama Falters In VA
Another day, another Virginia presidential poll undersampling Republicans by double-digits. This time, it is the NY Times / CBS / Quinnipiac poll that, like yesterday’s WashPo poll, predicts a meager 24% GOP turnout in Virginia in November. I’ll keep posting this until these morons get it through their thick skulls. Here is the partisan turnout… More There They Go Again – NYT / CBS / QPac Poll Undersamples GOP By Double Digits
The WashPo must use this same polling firm to get their responses:
How can members of the WashPo even look themselves in the eye in the mirror when they use such skewed data? Q: Generally speaking, do you usually think of yourself as a… Democrat 32% Republican 24% Independent 35% (VOL.) No Pref./Other 5% Don’t know 4% You know what is coming next with a sample like… More Latest WashPo VA Prez Poll Failure – Double Digit Undersampling Of GOP
Anyone else catch the ridiculous front-page story in the Sunday Washington Post, “Transgender at Five“? She first insisted she was a boy at the age of 2. “I am a boy” became a constant theme in struggles over clothing, bathing, swimming, eating, playing. Eventually, a psychologist diagnosed gender identity disorder. Now Tyler ‘s parents allow… More WashPo Sunday Front-page: Bad Parenting Is Good Parenting
They say that the real value of an investigative article is whether it exposes something as an isolated incident or a regular pattern of behavior that points to something larger. The Washington Post’s article about Mitt Romney’s high school days does just that — it exposes a pattern of behavior. But, the pattern isn’t Romney’s… More A Pattern Emerges…
Let’s be honest. Anyone who thinks that only 27% of registered voters in Virginia consider themselves to be Republicans is either a.) stupid; b.) high; c.) incredibly biased or d.) all of the above. Well that is exactly what the number the Washington Post used in their latest poll. To put that in context, the… More Even With Only 27% GOP In Its Sample, WashPo Poll Has Allen & Kaine Tied At 46%
A headline in this morning’s Washington Times brought an epiphany to me. Barack Obama is the Creigh Deeds of 2012. The Washington Post is, well, still The Washington Post. And the DNC’s Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the DPVA’s Brian Moran of 2012. So, what was the headline that turned on the light? When hit by Obama, Romney replies: ‘Jobs’… More Barack Obama — The Creigh Deeds Of 2012…
WashPo columnist Eugene Robinson, in an hysterical effort to attack Rick Santorum, is criticizing the way in which Santorum and his family chose to deal with the death of one of their children who only survived for two hours after his birth, calling them “weird” for wanting to hold their dead child and giving their… More Eugene Robinson Has No Soul
In an obvious sign of desperation by both the Washington Post and the Tim Kaine for Senate campaign, they’re already bringing up “macaca”. Just take a look at the clever way they are invoking it — Timmy!’s campaign guru Mohammed Elleithee (that’s his given name, not “Mo” which makes him sound like an Irish woman using… More WashPo, Timmy! Bringing Up “Macaca” Already
Here’s a chuckle from the folks at the WashPo: “As a tie breaker, [Bolling] may have to take some hard votes,’’ said House Minority Leader Ward L. Armstrong, a Democrat from Southside who is considering a run for governor in 2013. Left unsaid by the Post — Armstrong was defeated for reelection last Tuesday. One… More Left Unsaid
The WashPo is out with their state senate endorsements today and unsurprisingly they endorse Democrats in all but one race (they grudgingly back Jill Holtzman Vogel — just how bad must the Democrat candidate in that race be?) The endorsements are unintentionally humorous to say the least, most boiling down to the Republican candidate has “scant… More WashPo Editorial Endorsement Process Unmasked: FIRE! Ready! Aim!
President Obama has had no bigger supporter than Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank. So imagine my surprise when he writes that his President has become powerless and has virtually no idea how how to lead. >>>“Why?” inquired Politico’s Glenn Thrush. “He’s the leader of the free world. Why isn’t he leading this process?” That is… More Obama, the Powerless President
