I love reading articles like this (and for this one, all you need is the title):
Not that my love of articles like this reflects anything except a stain on my character, given that I enjoy them as the political equivalent of drunken hobo fight videos*. I may not have learned much in the last six years, but once thing that I have taken away from my observations is that people who are losing political battles tend to fight as hard as they know how. Which is not the same as ‘as hard as one would like,’ or ‘as hard as they can.’ So, when somebody has a problem with energy and/or skill levels of a particular candidate, at some point the possibility should be addressed that the actual problem lies in the actual candidate, and not in his or her methods or strategy. Which is what I think the case is here.
Put another way: the President can’t take off the kid gloves. They’re already off.
*Admittedly, I’ve never actually watched a drunken hobo fight video, but I can extrapolate from the commercials.
