All the Republican candidates should understand that the media will come after them with a ferocity that could be unprecedented. We’re seeing it already. If a Republican candidate criticizes the President, he or she is often branded as Racist.

Next year the Republican nominee will not only be competing against President Obama and the Democratic party but also against the mainstream media which is going to be even more committed to reelecting Mr. Obama than it was to electing him in the first place. That’s because a loss for Mr. Obama would reflect very poorly on the media. If Americans repudiate the liberal value system that many in the media embrace, that would be a personal affront to them.
