Quote of the Day, Danged If Maureen Dowd Didn’t Provide Me With Information edition.

I can’t say that the rest of the article is all that interesting – Maureen Dowd seems to be under the impression both that her side won the recent shutdown (debatable), and that it’s surprising that Barack Obama isn’t going to do anything about it (laughable) – but this is new data for me:

When [Barack Obama] first saw the White House movie theater, he was surprised there were so many seats beyond what the first family would need.

That is the man, to a T. It’s also one major reason why it’s debatable to say that Obama’s side ‘won’ the recent shutdown. Contra Dowd and Valerie Jarrett, President Obama is not particularly impressive as either a thinker or an advocate; and while being easily bored is indeed a sign of genius, it is also a sign of dullness. I’ve been hearing for years about how brilliant this guy is; you’d think that I’d have seen evidence of it by now.

  1. He won in the sense that now the R moderate brigade feels they have a valid reason to openly oppose conservatives. So now our side is split and his side isn’t. McCain and co. are clearly in recriminations mode.

  2. The problem isn’t that we don’t have enough minority voters, contra McCain and company. The problem is my wife no longer votes because she no longer sees a difference between the two parties. And I can’t convince her otherwise. Republicans have lost 4 million voters since 2004. They have to pull out of the McCain death spiral.
    As for O’Bama I agree with the observation of the guy from Brazil at Ace’s place, that being a leftist is the default position in modern society you don’t have to think you just have to feel. As such O’bama is intellectually lazy, he doesn’t think things thru and it it shows.
