And back to the British ‘Conservative’ reality. In the country where 99.9 per cent of the Conservative party speaks about Romney/Ryan duo as ‘The Radical Right’ it shouldn’t be surprising that the ‘stellar’ Conservative magazine the Spectator’s coverage consist of these two gems (http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse):
‘Why wasn’t Barack Obama more focused in the debate?’ by Jonathan Jones is Director of Research at The Spectator. He writes:
OK, cards on the table: I’m a big Obama fan. I desperately hope he wins next month, and I’m reasonably confident he will. But even to my biased eye, he clearly put in the weaker performance of last night’s debate.
WHAT? The Spectator’s chief of research writing this. Can I humbly suggest he packs his bags and moves to BBC, the Guardian, the Times, New Statesman …. There’s loads of Obama fans there. But can’t we just have one decent conservative magazine in the UK? Apparently not. Just look at the headline of the second Spectator Coffee House piece:
Mitt Romney raises (low) expectations in first presidential debate
And that’s on the day when even the Guardian has:
Republican candidate lifts conservative morale with a strong and forceful performance in first US presidential debate.
OK. Enough. No Spectator for me. I am so glad I have never subscribed. And now never will. I am no socialist Cameroonian.
