Folks, this here is what we call a "tipping point."
Yes, that is the actual cover of Newsweek - NEWSWEEK! - that hits stands tomorrow. You can read it online here.
This marks the first time I can think of that a major establishment news source has printed anything remotely like this - even though millions of readers and viewers agree. The mainstream press has been completely in the tank for Obama - and suffering nightmarish declines in ratings and readership as more and more regular people recognize the partisan cheerleading for what it is and tune out.
It starts with Newsweek. This will be a big selling issue. And now that the dam has started to crack, other news media sources will start to publish their own hit pieces on Obama, in order to keep up and remain relevant. Thanks to Newsweek, now other sources can run critical pieces without sticking their necks out to be first. And this comes on the eve of the Republican National Convention, which will provide plenty of fodder.
Momentum has shifted - big time. Write this day down in your history books. This is the moment that Obama's fate became sealed. He will lose. Now the question is no longer "will Obama get re-elected?", because he won't. Instead, the question becomes "how big a victory will the Republicans have?"
