Raaacist NJ newspaper questions #Obama’s leadership, honesty – compares to Nixon

President Nixon and President Obama
Apt comparison? Oh yes.

The Star-Ledger, the largest newspaper in New Jersey, endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election last October. A little more than a year later, the paper’s editorial board has drawn parallels with Obama and Richard Nixon.

Specifically, the newspaper cited his widely disputed statements on Obamacare, the National Security Agency’s spying on foreign allies, and on dealing with Syria’s chemical weapons, and asked, “What’s the public to believe?”

In the editorial, which carried the headline, “Obama’s Growing Credibility Gap,” the board wrote: “It’s more than not just an old wives’ tale that a politician is only as good as his word. It’s mostly true.”

“(A politician) can lose an election — even more than one, as Richard Nixon proved — and still win the voters favor,” the editorial said of the president who left office in disgrace after the the Watergate scandal. “But he’s in real trouble if the paying public stops believing what he says, as Nixon also discovered. That’s why President Obama’s real problem is not so much the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act, but the growing sense he doesn’t tell the whole truth, or doesn’t know it. Either can be fatal for leader.”

I’d say we’ve moved well beyond the “growing sense” that the President is not telling the truth.  He just ISN’T. Period. End of Story.  But when we say that, we’re “racists.” Will the NJ Star Ledger be accused of the same? (Rhetorical question, of course)

As I’ve noted previously, the even the reliably left wing Obama/Obamacare supporters at the Charlotte Observer have all but called the President a flat out liar on Obamacare.  With his ratings continuing to tank and more mediots falling off the Obama bandwagon every day, pretty soon the President’s only editorial saviors will be the left wing shills at the New York Times and the affiliates who reprint their sycophantic drivel.
