Um....while you may see it as an excuse, it's hard to argue against the deleterious effect of the MSM on anyone that doesn't worship at the altar of the politically correct left. Example - the tea party movement, that began long before Obama was ever a contender, a true grassroots movement against the non-constitutional political mainstream government overreach happening in the Bush era, being dismissed as racist reaction to Obama astro-turf by the left and entrenched in the public 'mind' by the MSM mouthpieces.
The beginning of a new year is often a time to look forward and look back. The way the future looks, I prefer to look back -- and depend on my advanced age to spare me from having to deal with too much of the future.

If there are any awards to be given to anyone for what they did in 2012, one of those rewards should be for prophecy, if only because prophecies that turn out to be right are so rare.

With that in mind, my choice for the prediction of the year award goes to Bret Stephens of the Wall...
