IF that was the only way to get President Obama to sit down, shut up, and actually listen to criticism. Which hopefully he got yesterday.
Which, by the way, is why I am much more accepting of conservative pundits meeting with him off the record than I am of liberal pundits doing so. I expect the conservative ones to have their respect for the office inform their advice… and I expect the liberal ones to have their worship (and, in some cases, fear) of the man to inform their advice. And as you might expect, I think that the former is more likely to be beneficial to the country than the latter.
Anyway, that’s my thinking on this.
