The moment of truth arrived in the latest Gallup poll. It told us that 67 pct. of Americans supported Obama's handling of the economy, but only 31 pct. favored the Republicans. Not even close. The marquee media, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and the other stumbling downfield blockers should now use their last timeout to talk things over. Robert Gibbs, the president's press secretary, pointed out a phenomenon that overtook the media long before Obama became a household name. He said there's the "conventional wisdom" of the Capital press corps, and there's the reality of America outside the beltway.
Fair warning to those who rush to judgment as their faces are being powdered for the cameras. Even the expensive cosmetics won't disguise your foolish ways.
