Limiting Government

For John, BLUFYes, the Press would cover for a President Hillary Clinton, rather than doing their job.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

"Why the president needs to be white, male and Republican: Glenn Reynolds"

The sub-headline:
Media watchdogs snoozed while Obama expanded executive power. They'll wake up and bite when it's Trump.
Here is the lede:
The press has done a lousy job of protecting American freedoms in recent years.  But I have a modest proposal for improving press performance:  Elect a white male Republican.
Like Benghazi, where the press totally ignored how the Administration stepped all over the Freedom of the Press.  It was a little item, a 14 minute movie trailer, but those little precedents can be used against the big boys later on.  Short sighted on the part of the Press.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

  Note for Jack:  "modest proposal" is a Republican "dog whistle" for political satire.
  Lawyers have no shame.
  No, I do not think the Administration's actions lead to the death of the four Americans in Benghazi.  Do I think they should have been more forward leaning?  Yes, in the event the terrorists had other targets in mind.
