Quote of the Week

Not really a short quote, but Erick Erickson, editor of Red State, hits it out of the park with his discussion of why the American public increasingly does not trust the press, nor its literally intimate relationship with the left wing establishment Washington-New York axis.  Here he is inveighing against the obvious ills of the last few years of the Obama administration.

This is an administration whose Internal Revenue Service “accidentally” leaked confidential tax information about a number of conservative groups and the press buys the accident. This is an administration whose HHS Secretary was found guilty of a Hatch Act violation and the press said it was no big deal. This is an administration that put political cronies in Inspectors General positions, if it bothered to fill them at all, then saw the Inspectors General report away Fast & Furious, the New Black Panthers litigation, etc. and the press yawned.  
This is an administration that said Osama Bin Laden was dead and Al Qaeda was on the run when we now see Al Qaeda alive and our assassinated ambassador dragged through the streets of Benghazi. Still, most of the political press yawns.  
After all, there’s a non-scandal about Mitt Romney and abortion to focus on and his remarks on the 47% and . . .
