Media Clown Sideshow Distracts From Lack of Leadership in the Center Ring

Erickson pegs it in his article. The media broke out the tricycles and squeeze horns and tried to make the Chris Stevens murder about Mitt Romney's tone. Or something.

Yesterday, as the American consulate in Libya was smoking and the rioters were returning in Egypt, the President of the United States flew off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser while his spokesman was telling the American press corps that yesterday wasn’t really a normal political day. Had it been George W. Bush, the media would, right now, be marching on the White House with pitch forks and torches. Remember, on 9/11, as events were unfolding in Washington, the American media was crying for President Bush to return to Washington. They wanted Daddy at home in the White House where he could tuck them in bed, damn the security issues of getting him there.

I get that Chuck Todd is a former Democrat hill staffer. I get that the Politico is riddled with Democrats, some former activists and a former staffer for Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I get that Michael Scherer from Time magazine is a left wing reporter for Mother Jones and turned respectable, “objective” journalist. I get that Ben Smith, leading up Buzz Feed, is a leftwing journalist paraded about as if he is some sort of objective reporter at a trendy site full of cat photos. What I really get is that the American media runs with a herd mentality, leans left, and yesterday collectively fell over their group think as they leaned so far left to focus on Mitt Romney and not President Obama. Yesterday, the American media beclowned itself in ways I didn’t really even think was possible, even knowing how in the tank for Barack Obama they are.

Yesterday, we learned that there were no Marines protecting our Ambassador to Libya despite State Department warnings about violence and kidnappings in the Benghazi. We already knew Al Qaeda was coming on strong there. But we relied on locals for support and now we know the locals betrayed us as they have in the past in Afghanistan and Iraq too.

Read Erickson's whole article. He gets this right. If there is a "story within a story" at all it's not what Romney said or didn't say, it's what the mainstream media apparently colluded to say instead of directing attention toward the weak, apologetic responses to the attack on America on the part of the White House.

Now we finally have proof that leading from behind actually gets the people out in front killed.

Boston, MA - Mitt Romney today released his weekly podcast on President Obama's failed economic record and broken promises. The podcast is available each week on

Hello, this is Mitt Romney.

And this week, Democrats met in Charlotte to re-nominate Barack Obama for President. They tried to recapture the spirit of 2008, when then-candidate Obama stood in front of Greek columns and made a lot of promises about how he'd make life better for Americans.

He was elected, but things did not get better. Under President Obama, we've endured the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.

This week, after another Democrat convention filled with nice words and a lot of promises, Friday's jobs report once again brought this administration back down to earth. The unemployment rate has now been above 8 percent for 43 straight months.

Nearly 47 million Americans are on food stamps - an all-time record high, and 15 million more Americans than when President Obama took office.

Nearly 60 percent of the jobs that have been created after the recession was officially over are low-wage jobs, and they pay less than $14 an hour.

And our national debt recently reached a staggering $16 trillion, an increase of almost $6 trillion under President Obama.

Americans are hurting, they're paying a heavy toll for these years of drift and disappointment, trying hard to hang on for a brighter day. But when we looked to Charlotte this week for signs of hope from the party in power, what did we see?

We saw a party completely out of ideas. We didn't hear one new idea for throwing a lifeline to the struggling middle class. Instead, we heard a stubborn defense of policies that haven't worked.

We saw a president who once promised to unite us, double-down on the politics of fear and division. Four years ago, he said, "If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from." That was Candidate Obama describing the strategy that is now at the heart of President Obama's campaign.

A couple days ago, the President was asked to grade his economic performance.

Words like "disappointing" and "dismal" come to mind. But instead, he chose "incomplete" - because that's the best he can do as he asks the American people for a second term.

President Obama is hoping you'll let him advance with an "incomplete." But on November 6th, Americans should hold him accountable. I'm asking you to vote for the ticket that's offering real solutions for the middle class, with a plan to create 12 million jobs over the next four years.

A weak economy and unprecedented debt may be the best President Obama can do - but it is not the best America can do. I commit to you that I will be the president this moment demands. Join our cause, and help us deliver a better future for all Americans this November.

I'm Mitt Romney, and thanks for listening.
