What the press IS concerned about? That they were not given access to their Messiah during rounds of golf with Tiger Woods. Now THAT was irritating. THAT was an affront to their station in life. Yeeesh.....

And once they were able to ask Obama a question, the first one was, "Did you beat Tiger?"

Now you have to admit, Frank, that was pretty hard driving.

Obama didn't want the public to see him with a 1% er.

This letter will not get attention by this same fawning media which has only carried water buckets for the Messiah...

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
