    Just looked, neither the Washington Post, N.Y. Times or the L.A. Times have said a word. In fact I haven't seen any news source that gave Obama a complete pass in 2008 and have been protecting Obama for the past six years even carrying the story.

    Well this isn't the "October Surprise," I think the incompetent handling by the Obama administration of the Ebola crisis is the "October Surprise."
    3 people have had Ebola in this country. One of whom has died.

    I guess we wouldn't want to waste a good crisis though...

    I'm not sure that it's getting worse. I think the digital age has made it more "in our face" and easy to find. Once upon a time in America, decent people respected the privacy of the family members of elected officials (and any other "public" figure for that matter). Sadly, that isn't the case anymore.

    Remember, this is a country that thinks the Kardashians are an interesting family. Nothing shocks me anymore.

    Are " people familiar with the matter" the new "sources"? I guess they don't want to write "some clerk we paid off to break privacy laws", "some hacker who sold us a batch or stolen data" or "someone we're blackmailing to get information". The head of the NSA should get a press-pass and everything they've done wrong would be magically forgotten.

    Oh, exactly. I've never seen their show, but I read about them at my favorite gossip site, DListed, and think of them, as Michael K says, as the "Kartrashians."

    Here's what I meant by getting worse. Although I've read claims to the contrary here at DP, I don't recall ugly remarks about Amy Carter when she was a child. But ugly people made fun of Chelsea Clinton for being homely, and that really ticked me off and still does. But the Bush twins were continually called sluts, and ugly people also talked about Laura Bush being a murderer. That's a step beyond.

    I think Michelle Obama has had it a lot easier than Laura Bush, so frequently depicted as a "Stepford wife," and I am really grateful that folks have left her daughters alone.

    And that's the thing--the focus should be on the candidate. In this case of this thread, what possible relevance has this disgrace of Biden's 43-44-year old son? None, that's what, and if your ideas are valuable, you don't need to stoop to smears.

    I remember jokes about Amy Carter when I was a kid. I even remember a Saturday Night Live (I think?) skit about "Little Four Eyes" where the Jimmy Carter character was discussing nukes with another actor playing a kid with gigantic coke bottle glasses and pigtails.

    I agree that they take it too far, but I actually saw the story on Biden's son on MSNBC's home page late last night after the AP picked it up, and it was even on the morning shows. While I so agree with your point that personal attacks on the families are lousy, I can't really say that this is a personal attack on Biden's son. It's reporting the news.

    The Secret Service has no place talking about anybody with their complete loss of respect as a unit. If anything I would wonder if Biden bought his cocaine from a Secret Service agent.

    It is usually losers who jump on the bandwagon of any trashing to try and elevate their own misgivings.

    That's an entirely different matter, unrelated to recreational drug use.

    Interesting logic.
    No, they should win because the leftist are trying to fundamentally change this country. Not that a load of RINO's are going to do much anyway.

    GW Bush when asked if he had done cocaine...

    "when I was young and irresponsible, I was young and irresponsible."

    now... why again should we give a rat's ass about a VP's son getting busted... Especially when we barely give a rat's ass about the VP himself?
    Seems the liberal mouthpieces got their knickers all in a twist recently because there was a drunken brawl at a family party that Palin attended. Nothing illegal like drug abuse. Palin isn't even vice president. Yet the little libbies seemed to want to give a rat's ass.

    I think this topic is an excellent one for the sake of pointing out the hypocrisy of liberals yet one more time.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
