“Moral Authority” of Mothers Who’ve Lost a Son According to NY Times? Zero.


Well, it is now.  Back when George Bush was President there was another story about moral authority.

There’s an angry mother of a dead soldier camping outside his Crawford ranch, demanding to see a president who prefers his sympathy to be carefully choreographed.


But [George Bush’s] humanitarianism will remain inhumane as long as he fails to understand that the moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute.

That was August 10, 2005 and of course George Bush was President.  This is today and Barack Obama, the long awaited hope of the New York Times and the rest of the major media, is President.  The biggest controversy they’ve been able to come up with in the last six years is the brown suit Obama wore on the day he announced that he had no strategy to deal with ISIS.  No strategy?  No problem.  Brown suit?  Well it was either the height of fashion or it didn’t project power.  Of course, since the president doesn’t project much in the way of power it sounded like a good fit to us.

Anyway, back to the “moral authority” of parents.

The family of Steven Sotloff, the latest American journalist beheaded by ISIS, is reportedly “outraged” at the Obama administration for “deliberate leaks” they interpret as “an attempt to absolve the administration of inaction.” This reporting comes Wednesday from no less a source than the New York Times

You’re saying, “Curmudgeon, you’re blowing hot air.  The Times reported it.  Get over it.”  Except for this…

…which chose to bury the news under more than two dozen paragraphs…

In just eleven short years we’ve gone from parents who have absolute moral authority to parents who are just an inconvenient nudge.

Looks like the left, and especially the leftist media, are all out of morals when it comes to defending the President.  But then, when you have a President who has absolutely no moral center we guess that makes sense.
