    In 2008, given the fact that all these pubs saw the writing on the wall, hated Palin as a running mate and were astounded at the horrible campaign McCain was conducting were but some of the reasons they gave for endorsing Obama.  None of them wanted to look they didn't know what was going to happen, so they endorsed Obama to 'save face'.  Go back and read their respective endorsements.  Half-hearted as they all were, none impressed me.

    But now were talking about 2010, not 2008.  My comment, from the heart though it may be, stands.

    •  My point is they're not ultra conservative (0+ / 0-)

      And I don't think they should be demonized as such. Though they have some conservative leaning economic beliefs, they're pro gay marriage, pro government involvement in healthcare, and strongly non proliferation among other stances.

      As disappointing as their editing blunder may be, they are NOT rabid hard right nuts.

      GOP stands for Grand Old Problem.

        Are you saying The Washington Times is not ultra conservative?  Maybe you could make a case for the WSJ and possibly The Economist, but you'll never convince me the Times is anything but a shill for the ultra conservatives in this country.
