“Fifty-seven percent of Americans approve of the way [Obama is] handling the responsibilities in commander in chief. Now the big question going forward is: Will those numbers survive the decision on sending troops to Afghanistan which could come in the next couple of weeks?” –ABC’s George Stephanopoulos

“Only 20 percent of the country now consider themselves Republican. That is the lowest level of support in 26 years.” –ABC’s Charles Gibson, who missed that 26 years ago was just before the Reagan landslide of 1984

Eat your heart out:

“Talk radio, especially conservative talk, is so powerful, some say it’s made our country viciously partisan. Ten of the top 11 radio talk shows are conservative. The king? Rush Limbaugh, with 15 million [sic — 20 million] listeners.” –CNN’s Carol Costello

Back alleys and coat hangers:

“Based on his 14-year record as a lawmaker — a record dominated by his focus on incendiary wedge issues — we worry that [Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob] McDonnell’s Virginia would be one where abortion rights would be curtailed; where homosexuals would be treated as second-class citizens; where information about birth control would be hidden; and where the line between church and state could get awfully porous. That is a prescription for yesterday’s Virginia, not tomorrow’s.” —The Washington Post (Yesterday’s Virginia would be the Virginia of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Patrick Henry.)

Getting it right:

“The White House trying to dictate who’s a news organization. Democrats out to gut a business group. Obama media allies damning Americans as racist, unpatriotic and treasonous. Is this the America Obama promised when he campaigned to end the cynical and divisive politics of the past?” –Chicago Sun-Times columnist Steve Huntley

Getting it right II:

“It’s escaped none of our notice that the White House has decided in the last few weeks to declare one of our sister organizations ‘not a news organization’ and to tell the rest of us not to treat them like a news organization. Can you explain why it’s appropriate for the White House to decide that a news organization is not one?” –ABC’s Jake Tapper to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs

This week’s “Leftmedia Buster” Award:

“So the president’s aides appear on other news channels to say that Fox, unlike those outlets, is really not a news organization but an arm of the Republican Party. One wonders how our colleagues at CNN and elsewhere like being patted on the head and given the seal of approval by the White House.” –Fox News political analyst Brit Hume
