It was the end of a long day in a stuffy Simi Valley office building. Ann Romney had been under oath for more than four hours, testifying in a sometimes contentious deposition about a pricey horse she sold that may or may not have been afflicted with a condition that made him unrideable.
Oh, yeah – Ann Romney was ultimately dropped from the suit, so there is really no story, besides she got testy during her deposition. And anyone who has ever been deposed has certainly gotten testy during such a proceeding.
But the story then goes into all sorts of exquisite detail about the nature of Mrs. Romney’s hobby and its cost. Personally, I know competitive horse events are expensive – my high school age niece rides and has won a number of awards over the years. But is the story relevant – especially given the reluctance of the media to look into the biography and associations of Barack Obama who is, unlike Ann Romney, an office holder and a candidate.
So let’s get an investigation into Obama’s college years and transcripts. Let’s get media coverage of his terrorist associations – both domestic and foreign. Let’s get some stories about the connection between the election of Obama to the Senate and Michelle Obama’s subsequent pay raise.
After all – the American public has a right to know about both sides’ dirty laundry, doesn’t it?
