In a Vanity Fair article. SodaHead asks: Should Politicians Be Complaining About Their Jobs? Axelrod:
“There’s a relentlessness to this that’s unlike anything else, especially when you come into office in a time of crisis,” says Obama senior adviser David Axelrod. “We did not exactly ease into the tub. The world is so much smaller, and events reverberate much more quickly, and one person can create an event so quickly from one computer terminal.”Well, you oughta know, Astroturf.
Obama as Gulliver. We the people are the Lilliputians, ungrateful and of puny brain of course. But really, our President Barack Obama is a fiction of moderation, a giant hot air balloon of promises, a dictatorial but clumsy incompetent who has been sheltered in a radical, elitist bubble all his life. Fouad Ajami:
Mr. Obama could protest that his swift and sudden fall from grace is no fault of his. He had been a blank slate, and the devotees had projected onto him their hopes and dreams. His victory had not been the triumph of policies he had enunciated in great detail. He had never run anything in his entire life. He had a scant public record, but oddly this worked to his advantage. If he was going to begin the world anew, it was better that he knew little about the machinery of government.Yeah, he left that to Rahmbo and Nancy Pelosi.
