Poor Obama

, ,

Mark Halperin, in Time, describes just how bad the Chosen One’s situation has become.

Barack Obama is being politically crushed in a vise. From above, by elite opinion about his competence. From below, by mass anger and anxiety over unemployment. And it is too late for him to do anything about this predicament until after November’s elections.

With the exception of core Obama Administration loyalists, most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters. This view is held by Fox News pundits, executives and anchors at the major old-media outlets, reporters who cover the White House, Democratic and Republican congressional leaders and governors, many Democratic business people and lawyers who raised big money for Obama in 2008, and even some members of the Administration just beyond the inner circle.

I just want to point out out Mark Halperin of Time, author of the linked article above, is indeed an entirely different person from Mark Helprin, the great novelist, conservative thinker and Claremont Institute scholar.

Halperin is a midget to the intellect and ethics of Helprin.

They are often confused.


No Man

No man thanks the idiots that voted for this useless fabrication.

No Man

Poor America!


The main thrust of the article is actually pro-Obama.


Yes, but I enjoyed reading how badly things are going for him anyway.
