Instapundit points to this AP wire service story that finally admits what Republicans said during the campaign--and were generally called racist or fools for saying:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President-elect Barack Obama, relatively young and inexperienced, is facing a rapidly growing list of monumental challenges as he prepares to take the reins of a nation in turmoil. [emphasis added]The problems confronting America are severe: the bailouts, driven at least in part by subprime mortgage lending forced on lenders by the left; the War on Terror; a severe economic slump. And the news media decided that it was best to have someone "inexperienced" in charge.
If Republicans had run a pro-gay marriage and pro-abortion candidate for President, do you suppose that the media would have been quite so insistent on sending someone to the White House that was this inexperienced?
