No, it’s not a spoof. Newsweek Magazine’s cover this week is a picture of Barack Obama with the headline “Hit the Road, Barack.” Harvard professor Niall Fergusson writes inside that it’s time for Obama to go and the only path toward American prosperity is through the Republican plan. Left leaning bloggers are out in force today repudiating this article and claiming Fergusson has a man-crush on Ryan. (Krugman-HuffPo, Mitchell-The Nation)
Coming from the ultra left magazine, should this be taken as a sign that a shake-up in the Obama campaign is needed? Or is the left just tired of this administrations finger in the wind politics? Or…is Newsweek, a magazine that is struggling to regain it’s footing, just looking for sales???
In the following video Charles Payne of FBC looks at possible reasons why Newsweek chose this surprising cover.
