New York Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal wants it known that the paper hasn’t yet endorsed any candidate in the 2016 presidential race … not even Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto doesn’t seem convinced.

Let him be clear: Rosenthal didn’t know anything about the Times’ piece on Benghazi — the one that maintains the terrorist attack there was “fueled in large part” by a video — until he read it in the paper this weekend. That sounds oddly familiar.

But seriously, the Times has no one in mind for 2016.

    NY Time editor said while sitting in the turret of an M1 Abrams. . . . . It’s called being in the Tank for Hillary!

    • bluewaternavy

      Hmm, Methinks it would have been a septic tank. No one from the NYT would go near anything like a REAL tank 😉

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        same time.. I see great minds work alike.. well yours and my humble contribution..

        • bluewaternavy

          We have but one mind each to give for our country! (libs have no mind, but three votes apiece!)

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      maybe a septic tank….

      NYT’s liberals get a rash around military alpha males..

  • ScarlettNY

    The last time the NYSlimes endorsed someone who wasn’t a Democrat was in 1956. They actually endorsed Dukakis!!! Lol

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      The only way they’d endorse anyone else… is if another unknown ultra left pod person steps up.. and isn’t a white male..

      so when grumpy says they haven’t picked Hillary, he means not until they’re sure somebody worse hasn’t come along..

  • AmericanMom

    So this allegedly intelligent editor printed a story backing the ridiculous Benghazi “video” defense. The newspaper thus believing a complete fabrication to be truth. If they weren’t boosting Mrs. Clinton’s chances of the presidency, then why publish a story that makes them appear to be assploding idiots?

    • keyboard jockey

      And why do it now in December of 2013 when not one of their voters will have the attention span to remember it in November 2016?

          agreed.. they’ll run this on a loop till all the networks fall in line and stop contradicting them… and it becomes “conventional wisdom”… another way to say accepted leftist dogma set in stone.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      Well, they see what lying did for BHO, so they’re just giving her a leg up.

      • Jim Denney

        “Leg up” … isn’t that a modified limited hangout of the Tingles defense? H/T Richard “Tricky Dick” Nixon.

      • AmericanMom

        Like dogs put a leg up when they urinate on everything around them, except now media is doing it to us.

    • V the K

      Tomorrow, the Times will run a story about how the word ‘Gullible’ is not in the dictionary.

      • AmericanMom

        the Times can’t erase the deaths caused by Fast & Furious and Benghazi nor the corruption of the IRS and overreach of the NSA – the only available shovels Obama-related are for media leftist bias and democrat party BS slinging.

          Thanks, right back at you.

    How can you tell when someone is reinforcing a lie? They begin their statement with “Let me be clear.”

    • nc ✓s & balances

      They also answer a direct question with the word “Look,” at the beginning of the sentence.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Military version?… how do you know the story to follow is completely made up?… if the story starts.. “This is no sh*T”…..

      dated maybe, but accurate.. if you have to beg people to believe you before saying anything else, You know he knows it’s all a lie..

  • Cliff Williams

    In all fairness the Times hasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, we know it is only a matter of time and is definitely coming.

  • Calcat36

    Chosen? No. White washed the past to justify your future choosing? Yes.

    In other words NYT, what difference does it make now?

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “Let me be clear: We have not chosen Mrs. Clinton.”

    No– she’s chosen YOU, to be her No.1 Gunga Dins. Just admit it. You’ll feel a lot better when you do.

  • Jim Denney

    … exceeded only by your affection for the non sequitur.

    • Calcat36

      Let it go Jim. Do not encourage it.

        Thanks, good advice … I sometimes forget OFA pays them by the post.

          It is here for one reason, to agitate. And is allowed to do so without repercussions. Best to let the weed die by choking it of attention.

          • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

            I’ve already replied once or twice… but your advice makes perfect sense..

            I’m in..

    This is like the Bill Cosby comedy routine about the 15 month old child who doesn’t know that sound travels. The adult hears it and the kid isn’t smart enough to get that the adult hears it.

    The NYT ! The 15 month old child spewing “news” to other 15 month olds who want to believe it. The adults hear…..

    P.S. I’m racist because I either linked Bill Cosby (the racist….somehow ??), I’m a white guy older than 40 who linked to Bill Cosby, and you might be a moron !

    Side note: I LOVE liberals and RINOS because they’re so TRUTHFUL…..(SEE THE VID…)

  • TocksNedlog

    “Let me be clear” (one of Obama’s favorite setup lines) has become the new “Let me say this about that.”

  • The Jackal

    What was it the Nazis used to say: The Bigger The Lie, The More People Will Believe It! The idiots in this country will believe anything the Lame Steam Media shovel their way. Fucking Sheeple,like Germany in the 1930’s.

      “For even if [an audacious lie] is immediately debunked, it lingers like a bad odor– [people who cannot conceive of a lie on such a colossal scale will think], ‘No smoke without fire’ or ‘There must be SOME kernel of truth, else why would they say it”?

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        That is the Reid basis of operation… Lie to the entire nation from the floor of the Senate so you can’t be sued for slander in calling the GOP nominee a felon and ten year tax cheat…

        The dems and media knew it was a lie.. admitted as much..

        But they never stopped running that accusation till every low IQ voter had it nailed to his sloping forehead.. some of them STILL run that lie as if it had any basis in reality.. or whine Romney had off shore assets..

        ignoring Obama does as well… or that Obama pays the same tax rate he whined about Romney paying as if it were cheating..

        Their entire operation is a house of cards built on the repetitive lie repeated endlessly.. eventually the crash when it comes.. oh maybe this year as O-care scalds millions more.. will be a disaster so great, their party may well change their name..

        rebranding their turd with a much prettier name..

        but it’ll be the same old party of corrupt thugs.

    No, but NYT is clearing the path. Just watch their articles.

    They’re actually just helping her choose her White House china pattern.

  • tjp77

    I believe him when he says they haven’t chosen Hillary. They’re hedging their bets in case Obama decides to change the term limit law through executive action and run for a third term. Why wouldn’t he?

    The cowards locked the comments..

    The GOP has petty axes to grind?….. and the ultra liberal deny reality NYT’s DOESN’T?

    These carnival barkers have excused and justified every Obama debacle, without exception.. They ran editorials which even ignored or contradicted reports in the back pages of their own rag…

    They said “You like your plan you can keep your plan”.. wasn’t a bald faced lie,… even after most major democrats admitted it was..

    and this idiot thinks he can completely ignore all the information in these last 15 months that has confirmed the video story was utter horseschit?

    how flaming stupid do they think Americans are?

    Pravda at least morphed into somewhat respectable after the cold war.. The NYT’s simply tripled down on leftist rag to take up the slack.. They don’t even PRETEND to be objective anymore, they outright cheer lead the liberal propaganda screed..

    and as he does here, openly smear republicans..

    because that’s what New York idiot liberals do…. fish swim.. water is wet, and the NYT’s is a worthless propaganda rag..

  • ceemack

    “Progressives” have their own language. “Let me be clear” actually means “I’m about to tell a lie, but you’re expected to pretend it’s the truth.”
