Bad News Friday or what will Obama dump on us today?
It must be getting to other people too. On Wednesday, Nov. 18th, two related opinion pieces from Monica Crowley, A 'What now?' presidency, The endless series of unfathomable decisions and Karl Rove, The Permanent Campaign Continues, The KSM trial announcement was too important for a Friday news dump, summed up what I and other Americans are feeling. Both are worth reading in their entirety.
What is interesting to me is that they follow a similar format: They each list Obama's bad decisions in chronological order. The only real difference is that Rove supplies dates--all on Fridays.
A friend and I were just talking about this very thing: The Obama Presidency is wearing us out! Monica Crowley must have been listening in on that conversation. She wrote:
"Over the past 10 months, President Obama has subjected the country to a grueling and dizzying whirligig ride. Every day brings a new outrage, failure, resignation, scandalous revelation, incompetence, untruth, laughable spin and, most important, horrifyingly bad policy.
You cannot open a newspaper, go to a news Web site, or turn on cable news without seeing a new story that is more appalling than the last. Just when you think you've heard it all from Team Obama, the next day brings another jaw-dropper.The man is exhausting."
As for Karl Rove's piece, today is Friday... what's the bad news for today? I don't know yet.
As for permanent campaign mode, last night, Drudge posted this revealing quote from President Obama addressing our troops in South Korea*: "You guys make a pretty good photo op." Unbelievable.
*The photo op article is about Obama's failure to make a decision on Afghanistan before Thanksgiving. I can't imagine why he is waiting. Could it be he's waiting for his health care bill to pass first so as to not alienate some Democrats?
