Bill Plante of CBS News – yes, one of the Big Three – upon hearing White House Press Secretary Jay Carney yet again try to spin away the fact that President Obama said something extremely stupid Monday about judicial review:
“What he said on Monday was an obvious misspoken moment, because he talked about the Court not being in the position to overturn acts of Congress. You‘re standing up there twisting yourself in knots because he made a mistake and you can’t admit it.”
More here, including the video (H/T: AoSHQ). Some of you are shocked: personally, I am not. I have long taken the position that the Media’s favorite story is The God Who Turned Out To Be A Man After All; when push comes to shove they hunger for that story, and quiver with eagerness to tell it. As the President will be discovering, this go-round.
PS: Yes, the press loves Obama. Just like I love a grilled ribeye, cooked medium, with a side of mashed potatoes and steamed green beans, and don’t stint on the butter.
