Letter: Blame the media
There’s plenty of blame to go around for the government shutdown, but it’s the liberal media that’s most responsible because it doesn’t hold President Obama and the Democratic Senate accountable for their actions and inactions.
For example, a senior administration official said the following last week: “We are winning. . . . It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts “because what matters is the end result.”
So Obama and his Democratic cabal in the Senate are going to hold America hostage because they know the liberal media will let them get away with just about anything.
Last week dozens of bills came out of the Republican House to keep government running. What did Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and the Democratic Senate do to keep the government running? Absolutely nothing. I admit that Obama worked real hard last week making sure that World War II veterans couldn’t see their memorial by ordering it barricaded along with other open-space national monuments and cemeteries. If Obama put as much effort as he has done to ensure that America experience as much pain as possible during this shutdown into trying to avoid it, we would be in great shape now.
Someday America will demand a responsible media where a president and his administration aren’t allowed to act like dictators. This new and responsible media will make sure that everybody is held accountable and administrations will not be allowed to get away with investigating themselves. Then all Americans will be better off.
