Yes Lou, “It Is Too Bad How We Make Decisions,” Isn’t It?

by lewwaters

Lou Brancaccio The irony of Lou Brancaccio’s column in the Saturday October 3 Columbian is just too much to pass up.

Lou joins in with those Obama admirers who are seemingly stunned that the IOC could possible reject a personal plea from the One and his better half, MO. That the whole world isn’t enamored with such an inexperienced junior senator who has no idea what to do, other than engage in self glorification in every speech as are those Americans who fell for the canard of Obama completely escapes those like Lou Brancaccio.

For those reading this not in the Clark County Washington area, Lou Brancaccio is the managing editor of our paper of record, The Columbian, struggling through chapter 11 currently over decreasing revenues.

Lou pens a weekly column, Press Talk, editorializing his opinion, predominantly Democrat, as are many other failing newspapers across America.

The irony dripping from the title alone of his latest screed, Too bad how we make decisions is unbelievable, given that many in the community have called Brancaccio on his own decisions of making mountains out of molehills in favor of Democrats while often completely ignoring legitimate news stories that may paint Republicans in either favorable light or expose their own bias.

Many instances have been noted not only on this blog site, but several others within the community and even in the comments section of many articles written by Lou or his vitriolic cohorts, John Laird and Kathie Durbin, just to mention two.

Lou, who I believe once said he hailed from the Chicago area himself, laments on how the world doesn’t see the true Chicago today and instead of seeing the good of the city, focuses on such as Al Capone or the violent 1968 Democratic Convention held in the city.

Nowhere does he note that his choice of president has spent the entire 8 months of his presidency to date traveling the globe and apologizing for America being such a lousy country.

Even Bill Bennett noted on CNN that for once, Obama would be forced to praise America.

But to me, the irony isn’t so much that the IOC saw through the self aggrandizing speeches of both of the Obama’s but that Lou can’t even see his own poor choices in decision making that results in casting half of the community his paper claims to serve aside in favor of the political rhetoric of the left.

The editors ignore the voices of the community in matters of importance as tolling a new bridge across the Columbia River, taxing citizens for Universal Healthcare that is rapidly failing across America and even same-sex marriage, which has been soundly defeated everywhere it goes before a citizen vote.

Instead we see editorial after editorial trying to convince us how wrong we are, how we are not up to par with our values and at times, how dumb and bigoted we may be for not agreeing with leftists.

What you don’t see in editorials are mentions of outrageous comments made by Democrat Alan Grayson, mentions of False Democrat claims that offend conservatives or even mention of how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is threatening a Nevada newspaper, even though I personally sent Lou that article.

They don’t even have the courtesy to return a comment of “screw off, Republican.”

To be fair, I must comment that the editor of the Letters to the Editor section does pretty good job of approving letters from both points of view. But a paper cannot live by LTE’s only.

Lou tells us, “The International Olympic Committee turned a deaf ear to Chicago.”

From where I sit, the Columbian and Lou Brancaccio turns a deaf ear to half of Clark County, the conservative half.

He goes on to say, “In many ways we are all part of Chicago. And the Olympics will be worse off without it.”

Is he not part of Clark County and does not ignoring so many within our county leave his papers revenues “worse off?”

Even more ironic today, after lamenting on LeGarrette Blount, University of Oregon football player who punched out an opposing player, Lou says, “Consequences are not just set up for the offending party. They are also set up to show society what happens when you do wrong. Apparently, slaps on wrists for major wrongdoing is standard operating procedure in sports.”

Could not the same thing be said in regards to the ACORN scandal Lou is barely covering?

Could it not also be said of misdeeds of Democrat party members who still sit in chairmanships of committees and who the so called press doesn’t bother to write much about?

Could it also be said of a failing newspaper who chooses to ignore half of the community they claim to serve?

Yes Lou, it is too bad how we make decisions.

From where I sit, yours don’t seem much better than what you claim for the IOC.
