I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

The President of Big Media

There's no doubt that the so-called "Mainstream Media (MSM)" - newspapers, television, and to a lesser extent radio - were instrumental in ensuring the election of Candidate Barrack Hussein Obama as president of the United States. Suddenly, however, the MSM wants to distance itself from President Obama, as his actions and words cause concern not only among conservatives, but also among many of Obama's supposed partners in the Democratic Party. The newspapers are beginning to understand why it's not wise to elect a relative neophyte to such a high office, and are afraid the coming failures of the Obama Administration will implicate them.

It's too late. The MSM cannot escape the reality of its extremely partisan behavior toward Barrack Obama, no matter how they conduct themselves over the next few years.

The same is true of the mainstream portions of the Democratic Party. They, too, endorsed a candidate they knew little about to a position that is the ultimate in the demand of personal trust - and at least a LITTLE experience in making difficult decisions. The election of Barrack Obama has led to the destruction of institutional trust between the President, Congress, and the People.

Both the media and the Democrats failed to "vet" their candidate, and today we have a person with NO executive experience in the most strenuous and demanding executive position in the free world. We have a president that doesn't really understand (or seem to care about) science, economics, general law, personal freedom, national defense, human psychology, or institutional or personal integrity.

It's going to be a LONG four years, not only for our nation and its people, but for the MSM and the Democratic Party. The failures of the Republican Party may spell its doom. For the Democratic Party, it might be success that destroys it. Either way, the MSM will be forced to shoulder a huge portion of the blame.
