Most of the commentary I see here I agree with, as do most of the readers and commentators seem to. Very few liberals answer with comments, and most who do are often violent and mostly incoherent. It all leads me to wonder if and we commentators who "join in the debate" are really debating anyone. I fear we are all only preaching to the choir. How can we reach the left. when they don't listen anyway?

Newsweek stopped its print edition at the end of 2012, but they still tried to scandalize the country by producing a fake cover honoring Obama's second inauguration as "The Second Coming." This absurd attempt at myth making is a natural progression. The "cover" story was written by Evan Thomas, who proclaimed on MSNBC a few years ago that Obama was "sort of like God" in being above the gritty political fray.

It was just as absurd when Newsweek writer David Frum, the formerly conservative Bush speechwriter, tweeted this piece of media-elite nonsense: "First term Obama: punchee, 2nd term Obama, puncher."
