Assigned Reading: Obama, The Mortal
I love Charles Krauthammer. Here’s how he starts his commentary:
What happened to President Obama? His wax wings having melted, he is the man who fell to earth. What happened to bring his popularity down further than that of any new president in polling history save Gerald Ford (post-Nixon pardon)?
The conventional wisdom is that Obama made a tactical mistake by farming out his agenda to Congress and allowing himself to be pulled left by the doctrinaire liberals of the Democratic congressional leadership. But the idea of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi pulling Obama left is quite ridiculous. Where do you think he came from, this friend of Chavista ex-terrorist William Ayers, of PLO apologist Rashid Khalidi, of racialist inciter Jeremiah Wright?
For the rest, you’ll just have to read on. Just a brilliant assessment of the president’s current situation, and how he got there. Krauthammer always inspires me to write better, to learn more.
