Politico, considered in many circles as a haven for the Obama administration, raised eyebrows Tuesday with a piece titled “D.C. turns on Obama.”
“Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out,” the story says. “And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.”
The piece continues, saying that the president’s “holier-than-thou rhetoric” has left him little political capital with Democrats.
“And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be,” Politico reports.
