If you believe that the world got better when America elected a black president, you might have some doubts after some of the questionable actions of President Obama. The latest revelations that Seymour Hersh told us about how the executive plays fast and loose with the truth certainly gave me pause. And that’s not all.
But the world works on an entirely different level. It works on the basis that the first thing you do when you get direct access to a Head of State is to suggest he is a monkey, who should be hanged.
I know that the NYTimes always has an “adult-in-the-room” attitude. But in this case, the reporting is just too damned soft. I’m disgusted and disappointed.
