So it seems everything that conservatives were saying about bo is true. He is mediocre at best. he is unable to manage. he is a pie in the sky liberal. Unfortunately for bo, even liberals are having the scales fall from their eyes.
I believe it was Jean Giraudoux who first said, "Only the mediocre are always at their best."
Barack Obama was supposed to be the best, the very best, and yet he is always, reliably, consistently mediocre.
His speech on oil was no better or worse than his speech on race. Yet the Obammyboppers who once squealed with delight are weary of last year's boy band.
At the end of the big Oval Office address, Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews and the rest of the MSNBC gang jeered the president.
For a bewildered Obama, it must have felt like his Ceausescu balcony moment. Had they caught up with him in the White House parking lot, they'd have put him up against the wall and clubbed him to a pulp with Matthews' no-longer-tingling leg.
For the first time I felt a wee bit sorry for the poor fellow. What had he done to so enrage his full supporting chorus?
In the Washington Post, the reaction of longtime Obammysoxer Eugene Robinson was headlined "Obama Disappoints From the Beginning of His Speech."
So what? He always "disappoints."
