WASHINGTON POST FACT CHECK: OBAMA LIED ABOUT TAXES. “Obama’s claim of having passed the ‘biggest middle-class tax cut in history’ is ridiculous.”

The press has become noticeably less deferential of late. I wonder why?

Does it seem to you that the MSM press became less deferential at roughly the same time? My sense is that someone (was it WaPo?) stuck their toe in the water, wasn’t hit by a comic-strip ZOT lightning bolt, and criticism momentum has been building since. And that it started before The Vacation, but they’ve been piling on since, to the extent they could be said to be piling on, that is weakly.

Perhaps it’s concomitant with the comparisons to Nixon, which died down quickly but may have stung. Could be Fast and Furious/Gunwalker. The MSM may be realizing these guys are dumb enough to get into real trouble.

Yeah, it does seem to have hit all at once. Meanwhile, Don Surber reflects on Obama’s loss of support.
