Poor old Obama,
"Vernon Jordan, a close adviser to President Bill Clinton through his darkest days, told us:“It’s never all right if you’re the president. There is no smooth sailing. So now he has the turbulence, and this is the ultimate test of his leadership.” Jordan says Obama needs to do something dramatic on the IRS, and quick:“He needs to fire somebody. He needs action, not conversation.”
Obama’s aloof mien and holier-than-thou rhetoric have left him with little reservoir of good will, even among Democrats. And the press, after years of being accused of being soft on Obama while being berated by West Wing aides on matters big and small, now has every incentive to be as ruthless as can be.
This White House’s instinctive petulance, arrogance and defensiveness have all worked to isolate Obama at a time when he most needs a support system.“It feel like they don’t know what they’re here to do,” a former senior Obama administration official said.“When there’s no narrative, stuff like this consumes you.”
Comeuppance is sweet to the palate.
He cried A tear, a single little tear. All the dims can lap that one up. Boo hoo.
