Newsweek’s cover for next week?

As you all know by now, Newsweek this week featured a Mitt Romney cover with “The Wimp Factor” as the headline. It’s a replay of an old hit job on President George H. W. Bush in 1992. This is an example of the media making up a meme and pushing it out there for their liberal fellow travelers to jump on and push into the consciousness of the low-attention voter.

Below is my version of a Newsweek cover story that is just as valid, and even more justified given what we’ve learned about the women in Obama’s life. But you’ll never see this one on your newsstands.

UPDATE: Welcome, Instapundit readers, and thanks, Glenn!

    Excellent cover. Although I did love this one by John E at Ace of Spades HQ.

    When did Romney authorise a dangerous raid to take out the most wanted criminal we have? That took courage. If Bush had done it in the 7.5 years he had then you would have lauded it.

    Yeah, that was a real gutsy call. It only took four tries to get him to authorize it.

    Was the call made at all? Yes. Was there risk each time? Yes. Was he captured or killed during the 7.5 years of Bush Jr? No.
    If it had failed you would have complained then too.

    Bush is not a junior. And you give Obama way too much credit for the hard work done by the Bush administration in gathering intelligence. Think what you like, but Obama could do nothing else. He’s have looked like even more of an idiot than he is if he’d blown off the change to off Bin Laden, like Clinton did. How is that gutsy?
