The Times conjures up a chamber of horrors for progressives if the GOP wins the Senate. That probably would not bother the president as much as it bothers the New York Times. In the earlier years of the Obama presidency the White House laid on the prior administration the onus of any of problems for that presidency. With the 2010 GOP takeover of the House, it was the “obstructionist” GOP House. With a GOP House and Senate, it will be the GOP Congress.Substantively a GOP Congress will be cited as justification for bypassing Congress with executive actions fulfilling “I’ve got a pencil and I’ve got a phone.” Legacy-wise, it will be the woes of having had a Republican Congress in the last two years of the Obama presidency.The Times should not worry. The president will make what he sees as lemonade from what the Times sees as lemons.
In this article, the New York Times appears to have violated its own rule of fairness. Wen Jiabao was one of the first high officials implicated in this article, but the Times article failed to quote one of Wen Jiabao's recent statements challenging the Party Disciplinary Committee to investigate his family now, and promising to resign if any of the charges of inappropriateness or corruptions in his family is to be found true.
I ENJOYED reading the Week in Review so much last weekend for the first time in ages. The lead article, "A Man and His Cat," was so delightful, so "right on" so "humanitarian." It made me smile--many, many times. That is so rare these days of war and fighting and destruction. I was happy for the few minutes it took to read the article. His cat is just like mine.Congratulations to Tim Kreider and the New York Times for taking the time to share the article with us.
"Americans," we read, " are deeply confused about the risks of Ebola." Fortunately not so the New York Times editorial board, which does not know much about Ebola, but instinctively reacts negatively to any policy that involves constraint. And so they defend Dr. Craig Spencer, who despite having early symptoms of Ebola, and who surely should have known better, rode the subway and went bowling. How many deaths will it take to cure the Times of the disease of political correctness?
Interestingly, the New York Times, just today, published an article where he stated that he came out for the benefit of others. to make their lives easier.His announcement that he was "proud" to be gay was personal, yet there is no doubt whatsoever that he did this as a political statement, nor a personal one, as he himself said in the article. The act itself was courageous. He could have stayed openly gay, as it was acknowledged in Silicon Valley, without making a statement. And another executive, who was known to be gay 20 years ago, was passed over twice for the presidency, presumably BECAUSE he was known to be gay.The times, they are a-changin'...
What a pleasure and surprise it is to see such a favorable review of this important movie in the New York Times. That would be the same Times that held its own reporter's story about government spying until after George W. Bush was safely re-elected in 2004. It was also the same newspaper that Mr. Snowden refused to contact about his blockbuster story for fear of what that paper might do with it. Thank goodness for independent minds like Mr. Greenwald's and alternative sources of information like those found on the Internet.
Having read the New York Times accounts, having watched the tragic film several times along with countless others, there is no question in my mind that Mr. Garner was dealt with crudely and unjustly. We cannot have such needlessly tragic encounters repeated and redress is needed.I suggest opening the complete Grand Jury testimony, but no matter there needs to be justice for Mr. Garner.
I don't ever agree with the New York Times but finally a truthful and thoughtful article. The left leaning Times has come to terms with the truth of who Obama is and his policies that are very unpopular. The assumption was that America was ready to continue a leftward movement, this is not the case America is centrist not extreme right or left.
