R.W. (“Johnny”) Apple, Jr., Associate Editor of the New York Times, is arrogant, dull-witted and hard-left even by the lofty standards of the Times. Consider this Q and A exchange between Apple and a Times reader:
Q. Why hasn’t any Democrat reiterated F.D.R.’s “nothing to fear but fear” quote to neutralize the Republicans’ apparently successful strategy of fear-mongering? The president has said over and over that his first priority is the safety of the American people. Why hasn’t any Democrat reminded him that his first priority is to uphold and defend the Constitution? There is a not-so-subtle difference.
