Ignatius Hits GOP: No One Wants President Who ‘Whines About Media Coverage’

‘People are looking for someone who can be commander in chief and that’s not the person who whines about media coverage’

IGNATIUS: "I thought it was a — it was a great line and I thought there some was truth to it. The Republican debate may have been a disaster for the — for the media asking the questions, but I didn’t think the Republican candidates came out of it very well. And — and all of the squabbling, unfair — the media is so mean, they’re asking nasty questions. I think that makes the Republican candidates — it diminishes them. And if they stay on that, it may work with some Republican primary base voters, but I can’t imagine that it’s going to be effective with — with the electorate as a whole. People are looking for someone who can be commander in chief and that’s not the person who whines about media coverage."
