Matt Drudge’s headline today says it all: ’90 Million Out of Labor Force.’ From there, if you followed the link we attached, the rest is simply aggregate journalism. Sort of what we do, only successful.
Now that particular headline wasn’t posted Wednesday when White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer — who, ironically, has never held a real job — singled out the Drudge Report as Obama’s latest target for delegitimization.
Okay, not to be a troublemaker or anything, but aren’t enemies lists the scourge of Western democracy? Nixsonian (which is the scourgiest of all scourgery)? Did we not see the nail prints in Daniel Schorr‘s hands?
The White House goes after Fox News by name, and the White House goes after me by name, because what the White House wants is to eliminate any opposition — political, media, wherever it is. That is the modus operandi of the president, rather than debate people and win in a contest of hearts and minds. They don’t want to do that, no, no, just eliminate the opposition.

Well, to be fair, Obama’s enemies list is different than Nixon’s enemies list. Because NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, New York Times, Al Jazeera and a whole lotta other guys aren’t on the President’s list. It’s just the ones who don’t like same sex marriage, gun control, Michelle Obama’s brownshirt school lunches blitzkrieg, open borders … well, things the President wants, who get on the list.
No, wait. That was Nixon’s list.
Matt, watch your tax return this year.
