Dan Collins has got Obama pegged:
Karl Rove reflects on Obama and fleshes out the picture with commentary that seems similar to what I was saying yesterday about Think Progress. In his meta-commentary, Ed Morrissey calls him the Jon Stewart candidate:
Unfortunately for Obama and the Democrats who have carried him so close to the finish line, that â€œfierce urgency of nowâ€ is nothing more than a soundbite for a legislator who doesnâ€™t legislate, an agent of change who hasnâ€™t changes anything, and the beacon of hope who hasnâ€™t felt an urgency to take any action in the â€œnowâ€ for the past three years. Heâ€™s been eating his waffle and hanging out with people who donâ€™t like America or Americans much. That qualifies him to work the next Daily Show spin-off, not run the nation.
In my view, â€œthe fierce urgency of nowâ€ could possibly pertain to the Waffle Imperative or the Beer Relief Imperative. But most of all, considering his refusal to debate any more (heâ€™s already answered, like, eight questions), he has become the Bartleby candidate.
