"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Demagoguery and Its Enablers

It's hard to understand why the mainstream media doesn't hammer Obama about his position on the debt ceiling given this unfortunate historical fact found in the Congressional Record from Obama's time in the Senate:

OK, so it's actually not so hard to understand.   The mainstream media suppresses this fact because they don't want the obvious conclusion -- that Obama is a hypocritical demagogue -- to reach the American public.   It's all Pravda, all the time, in the newsrooms of what used to be called American "journalism."
