The One is Not Up to The Job.
March 28, 2009
For both of my readers out there, I apologize for the dearth of blogging the last few months – especially given all the red meat supplied by The One. As many of the “smart set” are starting to realize, President Obama is not quite what he said he was. Who could have predicted?
Jennifer Rubin gets it exactly right:
[T]here is an element of managerial incompetence [in Obama’s performance so far], but the real issue is that the Right was correct about Obama: he’s an ultra-liberal at least on domestic policy, not a pragmatic centrist either on policy or in style. His mode of governance — denigrate the opposition, engage in ad hominem attacks, refuse to compromise on substantive policy, disguise radical policy intentions with a haze of meaningless rhetoric — bespeaks someone supremely confident in his ideological views and undaunted by fears (which are slowly creeping up on his Red state colleagues) of having overshot his mandate.
