"What are you going to believe, your president's word or your lying eyes."
Wow. The Wall Street Journal's Dorothy Rabinowitcz nailed it. She used the classic American movie, "A Guide for the Married Man," to show how the president is treating the country and the news media. In this movie, Walter Mathau gave instructions to a young husband on how to cheat on his wife, why it is good to cheat on your wife, and how to get away with it. President Obama is creating a textbook demonstration on how to lie to the American people and get away with it. Will the media wake up?
His questioning of Mr. Romney's trustworthiness in this last phase of the campaign shows incredible brazenness. It would be like the husband Mathau describes, caught in bed with another woman, turning to his wife and questioning her faithfulness, with the other woman still in his bedroom. If this were just a story or a few of your friends, it could be laughable and painful.
That it is the president of the United States treating the American people like a wife in denial and accusing his opponent of the untrustworthiness of which Mr. Obama is himself obviously guilty, is frightening.
When you see MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews steadfastly defending the president, do you think of the loving wife defending her cheating husband against his accusers? When you hear Chris, do you see the woman who will not see the truth?
Will the news media finally become angry, finally act as the offended spouse and actually seek the truth, or are they so intent on sustaining the illusion they themselves have built that they will not see the truth. There is none so blind as he or she who will not see.
