A Preview of Campaign Stories to Come

This is the headline of an article written by a Washington Post staff writer:

2012 Republican presidential candidates all have flaws

Any problem with that?

He went on to list potential GOP candidates and his opinion of the potential flaws primary voters may find with each. Nice, huh? He quoted a political adviser that is a co-founder of the no labels campaign and has worked for both Republicans and Democrats. So, no agenda there, right?

This is a preview of what is to come during the 2012 presidential campaign. The campaign has already started - I would argue it never ended from 2008 - and Obama will have plenty of support in what is suppose to be the professional reporters out there. Instead we will have a barrage of this nonsense. We'll have many more articles spouting a reporter's personal opinion as fact and a big old wet kiss to Barack Obama - those Republicans, they would never be smart enough to pick someone who would actually unite the party and win an election against Barack Obama.

Maybe he will be proven to be right. If so, it's even more disturbing.
