NY Times Tries To Change Debate From Obama’s Economy To Ryan’s Record

The New York Times misses the point that Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan to be his running mate further highlights Obama’s failures — on the economy, on the debt, on bipartisanship, and on the budget.

Instead, the Times, right out of the gate, has written that Ryan’s selection will allow Obama to make this election a referendum on Ryan’s plan, and Obama will now be on “more promising territory” and have “a chance to press the offensive against his challengers rather than just defend his record.”

What the Times is doing is setting the conventional wisdom — that this election will now be a referendum on Ryan and not on Obama’s miserable record — in an effort to change the political conversation and debate so the mainstream media pack of dogs focuses even less than they currently do on all of Obama’s failures.
