Chicago Tribune Stands by Their Endorsement

ObamaIn a lengthy article, the Chicago Tribune focused on a discussion that three dozen journalists had with Barack Obama last Friday. This article completely refutes the petty argument that some Democrats have thrown at Obama: He has not been vetted.

The Chicago Tribune goes into great detail about their 12 year history with Obama. This was not a 10-minute ‘hi-and bye’ but a 92-minute discussion. All questions were answered.

Let me repeat: According to the Chicago Tribune, all questions were answered.

This is an extraordinary undertaking for any politician and, in my opinion, Obama is to be commended for his efforts in being forthright.

I do understand that no matter what Obama does or what he says, it will never be good enough for some people. That is just the way life goes sometimes.

TPM Muckraker has some additional points on this subject.


From the Chicago Tribune:

When we endorsed Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination Jan. 27, we said we had formed our opinions of him during 12 years of scrutiny. We concluded that the professional judgment and personal decency with which he has managed himself and his ambition distinguish him.

Nothing Obama said in our editorial board room Friday diminishes that verdict. (more…)

Cowboys fumble their way past the Vikings

I have a little work to do right now like the Cowboys. The Cowboys offense came out on fire. Their defense was flat footed and slow. The Cowboys some how got a win (because Minnesota can’t throw the football).

Here’s what I said before the gameI look for Dallas to come out focused and ready to play. I thought that the Bills game was going to be a walk in the park. It wasn’t. Therefore, Dallas will need to eliminate turnovers and stop stupid penalties. Dallas will try to start fast in order to encourage the Vikings to pack it in early and go home.

Sweet. I was 100% correct. The Cowboys did try and start fast. They used a hurry up thru their first drive. They marched down the field and scored a touchdown. Cool. Pressure was on the Vikings offense and Adrian Peterson (12 carries for 63 yds and 1 td). The Vikings came out like they were a playoff team. They ran the ball down the Cowboys’ throats. They threw little dump off passes in the middle of the field and receivers got the first down. From 20 yards out, Peterson goes off of left tackle, he breaks 2 tackles on the way to the endzone. The first quarter is over.

In the 2nd quarter the Cowboys dominated ever stat including the turnover column. This gave Minnesota the impression that they could win. The Vikings defense was bending but not breaking. Dallas had 4 possessions in the quarter. They ended with 2 fumbles, a punt and a missed 50 yard field goal. One of the fumbles were returned for a touchdown. The half ends with the Cowboys trailing 14 – 7 in spite of Tony Romo lighting up the Vikings’ secondary for 231 yards, one TD (28 of 32). Now, that’s crazy. (more…)

Their are injured soldiers Mr. President

6 weeks after the Walter Reed scandal broke our President went over to Walter Reed to check things out for himself.  I’m sure that he will be getting around to the US Attorney problem sometime in the month or so.


From WaPo:

“I was disturbed by their accounts of what went wrong,” he said in a speech to hospital staff members after the tour. “It is not right to have someone volunteer to wear our uniform and not get the best possible care. I apologize for what they went through, and we’re going to fix the problem.”  (more…)
