No Patronizing the President

Juan Williams urges that Obama not be treated with kid gloves because he is our first black president.

Money Q:

"During the Democrats' primaries and caucuses, candidate Obama often got affectionate if not fawning treatment from the American media. Editors, news anchors, columnists and commentators, both white and black but especially those on the political left, too often acted as if they were in a hurry to claim their role in history as supporters of the first black president.

For example, Mr. Obama was forced to give a speech on race as a result of revelations that he'd long attended a church led by a demagogue. It was an ordinary speech. At best it was successful at minimizing a political problem. Yet some in the media equated it to the Gettysburg Address."

Good stuff. But Juan needn't worry too much. The press, what's left of it, is a fickle boy. It'll turn.

Well, we don't have to worry about Limbaugh giving him a pass. He's already said that he wants Obama to fail.

'Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.' Somebody's gotta say it."
