43. Newsweek hasn't been worth the paper it's printed on for a long time.

Having said that, what's the outrage about? Is it because it's about Obama? There's no civility left in politics anyway. I don't recall anyone here complaining about the sexist Palin cover, or using a photo of Michelle Bachmann that made her look deranged (although she doesn't need much help in that department) or their previous issue calling Romney a wimp. Newsweek has never been "fair and balanced". I'm surprised that they went after Obama, that's akin to a right wing publication going after Paul Ryan (not that it'll ever happen).

That's why people are sick of politics, it's not about helping the nation, it's all about acquiring and staying in power.

A pox on all their heads!!!
