ABC Runs Interference For Barack Obama

Personally, I think the NFL analogy works best as a definition here:

...the act of a teammate or of teammates running ahead of a ball-carrier and blocking prospective tacklers out of the way.

Gee, what's in the news today that would require "interference"? Oh, yeah, the cancelled Keystone pipeline project, in which Barack Obama sacrificed 20,000 jobs, our national security, and the likelihood of reduced oil prices - while simultaneously pushing Canada into a closer relationship with China - all in order to placate a small but wealthy group of Democratic donors.

The media can't let their teammate get sacked, Lord no, not with the end zone only ten months away, and a swarm of Republican tacklers swarming down the field to lay some pipe up the president's ass. So ABC sacrifices the body, and runs interference:

Newt Gingrich lacks the moral character to serve as President, his second ex-wife Marianne told ABC News, saying his campaign positions on the sanctity of marriage and the importance of family values do not square with what she saw during their 18 years of marriage.

In her most provocative comments, the ex-Mrs. Gingrich said Newt sought an "open marriage" arrangement so he could have a mistress and a wife.

She said when Gingrich admitted to a six-year affair with a Congressional aide, he asked her if she would share him with the other woman, Callista, who is now married to Gingrich.....

And that's the last we'll hear about the Keystone Pipeline.  But you can bet when the Republicans pin the blame on Barack Obama for the non-recovery of his first term, the media will be the first to run to his defense, claiming that he "inherited the problems", and that he "can't fully control the economy", while repeating the false-on-its-face claim that he saved us all from another Great Depression.

ABC:  A Wholly Owned Subsidiarity of the Democratic National Committee?  Oh, you betcha....

Man, I wish Jack Tapper would ditch this chickenshit "news" operation....
