NY Times: Romney Ain't All Bad

The New York Times's vetting of Mitt Romney is so thorough that their research sometimes compels them to publish mildly flattering portrayals. The article's headline, In Real Estate Deal, Romney Made His Loss a Couple’s Gain, seemed lurid enough to suggest some sort of untoward kickback scheme, but as it turned out was more about Romney being just a good ole' Mormon softie. It's a quick read, and a good opportunity for the Times to promote its objectivity. But what stands out to me is the intensive scrutiny the paper is applying to this candidate for president - which is of course entirely appropriate - in stark contrast to the - well, not mere indifference to any examination of Obama's background, but outright hostility to any efforts to examine it at all.

Good catch. This kind of article makes it obvious that (1) they've gone all out to dig up dirt on Romney and (2) they really don't have anything. This is not an endorsement of the Mittster; he's on probation AFAIC. But, it's clear that no old scandal material is going to blow up. They're either going to have to fabricate something or go nuclear on the Mormon thing. Or both.

Or perhaps they're softening him up now with this puff-piece so they can hit all that much harder after the convention.
