I caught this rotten fish in my "Rush Limbaugh" roundup of news stories. Frank Rich, New York Times (surprised?), twists info to make it fit his premise (surprised?). Along with his ridiculous gyrating opinions disguised as fact, he again repeats the "Rush said he wanted Obama to fail" line.
These guys get their talking points and marching orders and off they go.
This op-ed looks really, really impressive though. He has a lot of links so it looks like he actually did some real research on the piece... I called his bluff and actually clicked on some of his links. Gee, surprise, surprise, they go to other articles written by fellow journalists. Politico, Washington Post, AP stories and such. I guess if I clicked all the links I might have found something other than another journalist or press release. Doubtful.
