Mark Halperin,editor-at-large and senior political analyst for TIME, has delivered, in my opinion, a considerable blow to Prez-O’s tenure so far; “..most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is 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.”
WOW. This is incredible. *tricksy titters* Is Halperin ringing in Obama’s political death knell? Sounds like it. Reading the article, I almost feel sorry for the guy. (I said almost ;) Halperin lays out a credible argument enumerating Obama’s incompetence and inability to ‘play nice’ with all the political principles that go along with ‘governing’ the world nation. My words. Well, that’s what it looks like to me. He should be concentrating on the home front, but he’s taken it upon himself to be the world’s savior and that, my friend, is not in him. He’d been thrown onto the world stage by the same elite clowns who now seek to toss him out into the lion’s den. All’s that’s missing is the loincloth and chariot.
And I do take issue with Halperin’s take on the Republicans as seeming to have no specific answers to problems or Halperin’s charge of obstructing job creation. The Democrats merely haven’t let the Republicans bring their solutions to the floor and take part in ‘brain storming’. Big difference. I’m a C-SPAN junkie and know how one-sided everything has been with the Democrats, politically-speaking. Actually, they deserve what they get. Frankly, I think this is the worst presidency of all time. And I’m not the only one to think so, apparently. *snort* So former president Jimmy Carter must be smiling somewhere in the world Today. Hey! Hey!
Needless to say, Mark Halperin deserves a Medal of Honor for speaking the truth to power in times such as these. Thank you, Mr. Halperin for telling it like it IS. You did a great service to your country. Truth.
