Obama newspaper endorsement triggers apology, Billings Montana Gazette apologizes to readers, Obamacare, Scandals, NSA spying, Failure to approve Keystone XL pipeline
“The function of the press is very high. It is almost Holy.
It ought to serve as a forum for the people, through which
the people may know freely what is going on. To misstate or
suppress the news is a breach of trust.”…. Louis D. Brandeis
“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.
Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

“That bad, huh? Newspaper so disappointed in Obama it apologizes for 2008 endorsement”
“President Obama has so far been a major disappointment to even his most ardent supporters, his approval numbers steadily falling to fresh lows.
And the president is apparently such a disappointment, that the Billings Gazette in Montana felt compelled last week to apologize to its readers for endorsing him in 2008 over Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
At least we were “winning battles in Iraq” when George W. Bush was president, reads the editorial, titled “Gazette opinion: Obama earned the low ratings.””
“The editorial contained a list of what the paper’s editors consider the president’s mistakes:
— The scandal over NSA spying on Americans
— Obama’s “war on carbon” and his failure to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.
— The failure of diplomacy in Iraq that put the country on the brink of civil war.
— The Bowe Bergdahl swap, which made the administration seem incompetent.
— Mismanagement of the Department of Veterans Affairs that led to to veterans dying before they could receive medical care.”
