Shining a Light On the Whole Lot of Them

As Obama continues to train his focus on the pettiness in Congress and right-wing obstructionism, it’s just too bad the traditional media — because it thrives on the conflict — is so hesitant to train its eye on the GOP hostility and presumptuousness Obama is exposing.

Because the newswire photos from Obama’s rare and historic one-vs.-one-hundred-and-seventy-eight at the GOP House Issues Conference yesterday were thoroughly tepid, mostly ignoring the slings-and-arrows coming from the Congresspeople on the floor (who — two days after that masterfully clever State of the Union — still don’t get how Obama is forcing their attitude out into the open), I thought I’d offer you a few more screen grabs.
