    WASHINGTON — Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, had a little political advice last week for President Obama and the Democrats: Don’t pass the president’s health care legislation because you would risk losing in the midterm elections.

    picture and rest.

    Is it any wonder the Times is floundering and becoming a mere parody of a newspaper - the very thing liberals attempt to portray more balanced (yes - balanced :eusa_angel: ) news organizations as?

    That image is quite disturbing in its attempted implications...

    In addition, do they not realize that they do Obama more harm than good with such a portrayal?? Such nonsense even makes many of his supporters roll their eyes.

    I don't think they are aware of the symbolism they created. They seem remarkably deaf.
