Let’s just say that it takes a special kind of… outlook on life… to write an article like this. To summarize: Obama had a horrible week; he’s flailing about and reacting to events, and that badly; he can’t connect with the American people, the country*, and even himself; AND NONE OF IT IS HIS FAULT SO YOU JUST SHUT UP ABOUT OBAMA YOU HATERS YOU JUST SHUT UP ESPECIALLY YOU YOU STUPID MITT STUPID ROMNEY YOU JUST SHUT UP NOW AND LEAVE OBAMA ALONE.
That last bit may be me just interpreting the subtext coming from Maureen Dowd. It takes skill to complain about a President’s screw-ups without once actually truly blaming the President making them, but MoDo’s up to the challenge.
*I may be anthropomorphizing there by making the distinction. I’m aware that it looks weird; it actually looks a little weird to me. But it still somehow rings a little true.
