It was hard enough keeping track of Barack Obama’s shifting positions–now we have to monitor the “gestures” also?
Charles Krauthammer on the surge: “This is the biggest turnaround of American fortunes in war since 1864. This is not exactly as dramatic as the taking of Atlanta during Sherman’s march, but what you have is a turnaround from a war that was being lost two years ago, and nobody quite knowing how to win it, to a war that could be won by next year.”
A very interesting possibility. Not that I think he could “deliver” his home state, but his reputation in the Old Dominion is certainly better than the Governor’s. (Really, has anyone had much of anything good to say about Tim Kaine since he leaked himself into the limelight?)
In case there was any doubt, Obama’s not doing any townhall debates, it seems. If you remember the Philadelphia debate and you’ve watched any of his press conferences or the Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson or Terry Moran overseas interviews you know why.
While instructing us that only by voting for Obama can we demonstrate that we aren’t racially insensitive, Maureen Dowd asks: “Can Obama overcome his pride and Hyde Park hauteur and win America over?” Well, then maybe it’s his pride and Hyde Park hauteur, not his race, that are the problem. Nah. Must be those hick, gun-toting, racists that are to blame.
The Post has more excuses for the photo preference for Obama than my kids have for staying up past their bedtimes. And the Post’s excuses are a lot weaker. He’s cuter and younger? Good grief.
They are just stumped, it seems. How could Obama not be loved by everyone?
A wonderful column, but I’m thinking that there would be plenty of competition for “America’s Silliest Local Legislators.”
