Obama’s Cronkite moment
Did the president lose Jon Stewart -- and his millennial base -- last night?
BY ALEX SEITZ-WALD

Obama can’t seek reelection anymore, of course. But he lost the Right long ago, and one wonders if at least some segments of his base may be losing patience as well, as the latest scandals on transparency and freedom of the press strike nerves close to the progressive heart. If George W. Bush targeted AP reporters, or systematically went after liberal groups, the left would be justifiably outraged (and was).

Meanwhile on CNN, Piers Morgan, who is also usually quite friendly to the president and willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, said Obama’s failures on transparency is America “at its worst.”
Especially when he promised a change in transparency. I think it all goes to show, that we can't rely on anyone seeking govt power, particularly the highest level to really reform themselves. Yet, people still have too much faith that govt is good enough to do this.

Good article. Though I think the Establishment is behind taking Obama down. Thus the media are really turning on him: 1) Obamacare is running into obstacles in being implemented 2) Syria is dragging out and it's coming out more that we're funding the AQ-aligned rebels. The Republicans will use all of it, including Benghazi, call for investigations but not a deep enough one because that will expose their own corruption.

There is a lot of rot in our govt today.
