Has anyone else noticed? It seems that just a few short months ago almost all of the media was shamelessly pro-obama and unapologetically anti-conservative. It now appears that quite a few news sources, like HuffPost and The Des Moines Register, are reporting in an ever so slightly more "balanced" way. I'm not saying that they are fairly and completely balanced, by any means. Just that they seem to be changing slightly. They seem to be less "ejaculate all over oneself" pro-obama than they have been for the past 3 years.
Is some of his luster beginning to fade? Are they finally beginning to see the writing on the wall?
Am I imagining things?
I ask because The Register ran a story this week about the miserable failure of "green" energy and obama's failure to put the 1,000,000 electric cars that he promised on the road. (I've always wondered what they do with the batteries from an electric car when they are no longer viable? Why is the "carbon footprint" required to build an electric car greater than the one required to build an F-150? Where do the greenies think that the plastic used in the manufacture of electric cars comes from? Hint: petroleum) The article stated that 7% of the total energy use in Amerika today is from "green sources". That would be solar, wind, and bio-fuels. It further stated that we could acheive 10% green energy production by 2035, maybe, if the government is willing to subsidize it at the same and greater levels than they do today. The point was that it isn't cost effective on a large scale.
Then HuffPost runs a story today to clarify an earlier story regarding Mittens' NAACP speech. They let everyone know that, even though he was boo'd when he said he would overturn obamacare, he got their attention and received a standing ovation at the conclusion of his speech. The White House spokesman could only say words to the effect of "there are some professional blacks in the NAACP". What does that mean? (That is not an endorsement of Romney. I like him only slightly more than I like obama, which isn't much)
And obama is starting to lose the Latino vote. Read that somewhere today. Go figure. :)
Anyway, I didn't really have anything to say. Just rambling.
