Um, yep Obama is out of touch

The picture introduces this interesting article in the New York Times that this left leaning Obama supporter (Frank Rich) headlining his piece Has a ‘Katrina Moment’ Arrived? I suppose that is what happens when the actions do not match the rhetoric. Most people can tell when the talk becomes cheap no matter what your political leanings … My hope would have been his actions against what he promised to be a bit more conservative, because TRUE conservatism is best for everyone, but alas no he is letting others really run the “show”. The interesting part of all this is he is starting to alienate his own supporters.
In addition to Rich’s article, you can see hints of this in a recent Camille Paglia Salon piece (page one mostly) Heads should roll. These are a few people on the left who are waking up, I doubt they will get through to our president.
Here is an awesome article from Andrew Breitbart:Dreaming of President Petraeus and an American surge It is an excellent summary of what is going on with Obama. I just found this quote below an interesting irony to which I wholeheartedly agree.
What is scaring us – even though many of us won’t admit it – is that we elected a president who wants more than anything to be liked.
I agree with the growing premise that Obama is worried about his image more than he is ready to get to work. the media made the mistake in the campaign to treat him softly so he does not know how to deal with the hard stuff, which is sad really because the media did a much better job of that with Palin… now that Obama is less and less coddled he is not sure what to do.
Why else would he be eager to get to Hollywood to give us some more campaign rhetoric? Why else would he call the NYT to explain he is not a Socialist (Article : Obama makes Oval Office call to reporters –h/t Michelle Malkin) These kind of actions remind me of Meghan McCain recently in her quest to get back into the limelight… to Meghan, move on. Obama, suck it up cupcake, get to work and realize you need to be true to your word. This leaves us with this current administration’s goals…(from the Breitbart article)
Let’s create more government dependency, reward the incompetent and print more money.
That’s doubling down on stupidity.
We “little” people are smarter than you give us credit for and this type of direction will never do. Obama it is time to really get in touch.
