Lets Get Real:
In the last hours of the Obama Administration the political hacks of the Administration are throwing out their last arrows at the new President and his team. The process of nomination and confirmation takes time in the US Congress, the Bill Clinton Administration had to go through a few Attorney General nominees before they had a confirmation. In the Bush 41 Administration they had a problems getting a nominee through before they picked Dick Cheney as Defence Secretary. It is a political game in D.C the opposition Party tries to knock off a nominee, just to show they have power and political payback. Both Parties have political hacks, it's the nature of the political game.
Lets Get Real:
It was fun watching BBC News has it covered the arrival of the President - Elect in Washington D.C, it was so biased it was nuts, one interview was about the psychology of the President, and then a writer said he was afraid of the results of a Trump Presidency. BBC News really has to grow up, is the level of coverage we are going to get, if so this blog suggests that News Junkies turn on to Fox News, at least they are objective in their coverage, a Conservative edge but objective. The liberal mainstream press has to get over itself, this coverage recalls the early Reagan years, in around 1980 the left wing Guardian had a cartoon of Reagan in cowboy costume and the ruins of the Capital Hill, yes dear voter, they were nuts at the time. Let us hope we get better coverage tomorrow.
