It seems the Presidential sector is in a similar condition.
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.And I'm going to plagiarize myself again because it fits so well.
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.
Obama did not turn out to be an orthodox liberal. He turned out to be a Communist. Community organizer? Black liberation theology? Share the wealth?I really like Instapundit on self plagiarism.
Any one who didn't see this guy coming wanted to be rolled.
I prefer to think of it as "They came at us in the same old way, and, you know, we beat them in the same old way."Well. As they say in the song See You In November.
Instapundit has a great take on the media change:
IS THE MEDIA GIVING UP ON OBAMA? Hey, they’ll go down for you, but they won’t go down with you. . . .Heh.
