As well as how the New York Times keeps harping on McCain's connection to G Gordon Liddy and ignores Obama's ties to Ayers and ACORN.

Only because the evil media isn't being fair by favoring the corporate parties! They should treat everyone equally! Stop making news instead of reporting it! If we all just hug each other and treat Ralph Nader and Cynthia McKinney like they might just win, rainbows and puppies will be everywhere and the world will be perfect.

Don't blame it on the sunshine,
Don't blame it on the moonlight,
Don't blame it on the good times,
Blame it on Obama.

Oh, for the love of Pete. Everybody BUT Barack Obama has faced a level of scrutiny that is just appalling.
Quote:
The media (lead by the DNC) has been in the tank for Obama since the Iowa caucus, and has attacked ANYONE who dared criticize Obama publicly.
Really? So the GOP tactic of calling Obama a Socialist (which is arguably not an attack to some but is clearly intended as one), making statements that suggest he hates America and/or is "pal'ing around with terrorists", constantly using his middle name without real cause, saying he's gonna raise everybodies taxes, saying that we cannot trust him.. Well I could go on, and thats just from people directly involved with the GOP (in some cases the two candidates) and high level conservative newspeople and pundits. Thats to say nothing of more fringe groups or people with access to blogs/websites/newspapers/etc.

There has been tons of criticism of Obama, some reasonable, much disguised bigotry and a lot of lies or at best misinformation.

To suggest otherwise is just silly and nearly made me think your post was satire, now I think you are just being ignorant (willfully or otherwise).. Realistically saying that any presidential candidate in history received no slanderous remarks or attacks is just stupid.

Someone on another board said the tank is so big now, it has taken on the properties of a black hole.
