Right at the top of page one: We’ve written about the scam every day for the past week.
That said, the scam has been underway since mid-September. This morning, the Washington Post explains the scam right at the top of page one.
Anne Gearan has been part of the scam, as we showed you last Tuesday. These are the headlines from the hard-copy Post and Gearan’s opening paragraphs:
GEARAN (10/22/12): Suddenly, close race on foreign policy / Romney goes into final debate having narrowed Obama’s clear edgeThat is exactly what the scam has been about all along.
It sounded weeks ago like a mismatch.
The final presidential debate would focus on foreign policy—a sitting president who’d overseen the death of Osama bin Laden pitted against a one-term governor, so new to diplomatic thinking that he’d managed to offend a good chunk of Britain during a brief trip this summer.
Monday night’s debate doesn’t look like a mismatch anymore.
Instead, when President Obama meets Republican challenger Mitt Romney in Boca Raton, Fla., he will face an opponent who has already made up tremendous ground on the subject by criticizing Obama as weak, waffling and distracted by his reelection goals.
There are many agendas within the organs of our “mainstream press corps.” That said, everyone has agreed to this scam, including the children who serve us our comfort food each night on The One True Liberal Channel.
How will Romney play Benghazi tonight? We have no idea. Just be thankful he bungled the subject so badly in the town hall debate.
(Obama had completely avoided the question he got on this topic. You can tell his answer was bad; Gail Collins said it was great!)
That said, the mainstream press corps has worked very hard to create a friendly playing field for Romney on this particular topic. As they did, Lawrence tried to get into a fight with Tagg. And he and Krystal assured us that Romney just isn’t really that funny.
We’ll offer one final post today, this time concerning the moderator.
