That's the gist of a new column by Larry Elder on the free pass Obama has been getting and will continue to receive from the liberal media.
You already see it in Pennsylvania, where the fawning media won't blame Gov. Ed Rendell for the variety of ills that plague the state even though Rendell has run the show for the past six years.
From Elder's column at Investor's Business Daily:
"How long do you think it will take for the press to turn on Obama?" a friend asked. "Eight years, if he's in that long," I told him. "Doesn't matter what happens.You don't think for one second that after expanding so much energy to get their candidate elected, the liberals who control the American media are going to do anything to make people have second thoughts about Obama, do you?
"Either they'll blame Bush or 'circumstances beyond Obama's control' while writing articles about how heroically Obama handles them." It's already started.
Read the full column, "For Media, It Will Always Be Bush's Fault," at the newspaper's Web site.
