PITY THE WALL STREET JOURNAL!

As Official Apologist for Buccaneers, The Wall Street Journal is suffering a bad case of the heebie-jeebies.  Owned by the wire-tapping Rupert Murdoch, the doyen of rumor and FOX News, the Journal of late has to endure nothing but the good news that contradicts what Buccaneers wish were true.

After all, how can the super-rich endure yet ever more humiliation, scraping by on mere millions.

Consider how Peggy Noonan and Karl Rove writhe in their columns. Rove, a Republican attack dog, on election night was so amazed that FOX had declared Obama had won the presidency, that he stormed into the news center’s datacenter.  He spins fantasies about how the GOP needs to persuade voters to cast ballots for candidates that have less than the best interests of their constituency in mind. Noonan, who writes brilliantly, seems unable to get her mind around the idea that the Reagan Revolution is over: the coalition of the Religious Right and the Rich has fallen apart because the rest of America favors Reproductive Rights, Gay Marriage, and all the other issues that would keep Big Government in America’s bedrooms while simultaneously demanding smaller government.

The Journal’s layout editors keep burying good news on interior pages. What else can they do? Admit that Murdoch’s agenda sucked, still sucks, and will suck in the future?

Let’s see, after 4 years in office, Obama was elected by a majority of Americans, not just a fluke of the Electoral College.  Nothing is more dear to the heart of Buccaneers than money, but at the Journal no one seems ready to admit that:

  • The Dow Jones is flirting with its all-time high,
  • America continues to create jobs, albeit slowly,
  • The Housing sector is coming to life,
  • The alleged rise in taxes is, in fact, the restoration of rates from long ago that were  lowered for an economic emergency by Bush—it’s time to restore normalcy,
  • Did we mention that the Bailout money Obama allocated at the beginning of his term has not only come back with a profit, but likely saved the jobs of hundreds of thousands of Americans?
  • ObamaCare is about to go into effect and will not bankrupt America,
  • We are out of one war and exiting another.
  • Oh…there has been no significant terrorist activity for years and Obama gave the order that killed Bin Laden.

Guess what, Rupert?  America is happy about such things.

DOYEN OF INDUSTRY

The Buccaneers are headed into the headwinds of Peace and Prosperity.  To get anywhere, they may have to turn around.
