WaPo vs Rubio vs Obama

Surely this has been pointed out already, but the WaPo seems to have put a lot more effort into their investigation of Marco Rubio's family narrative than they have on Obama's family narrative. Along with the major story they've had a series of followup critiques from their ombudsman, keeping the issue alive.

Meanwhile Jack Cashill and a few others could stand naked on the Capitol steps asking the WaPo to do a little digging into Obama's family history and get nothing but back page coverage in the police blotter. Guess it's more important to expose the truth about an up-and-coming conservative Latino whose name has been mentioned as a possible 2012 VP nominee than of the Commander-in-Chief, who will also be running in 2012.

Not to say they shouldn't be doing their job to root out embellishments, half-truths and lies from those who run for office, only that it should be consistent. Surely they wouldn't want anyone to think they are less than objective.

I'm been following this a little. It is interesting how one-sided they are. They don't even pretend to be fair to both sides any more (or did they ever?)

Right Truth

I don't know if Rubio embellished, lied, sensationalized or not but his parents definitely left Cuba during the time Castro came to power and got a better life. Rubio will find his way around these hacks, I bet.

Meanwhile they still won't investigate Obama's early childhood opposed to how he's portrayed it in Dreams and on the stump.
