Pat Caddell: "This Is Pat F'n' Caddell Talking At You, Numbnuts, And I'm Here To Tell You The MFM Is Sabotaging Obama"

That's right, you heard me, Jerk-Asses. What did I say? This is Pat Caddell brain-porking you with a truth-hog.

I’d like to share another point from my conversation with Caddell. Reflecting on the Carter years, Caddell says that when Carter stumbled, the press hounded him. Obama, he says, does not face similar media criticism.

“Obama has an uncontested narrative,” Caddell says. This, he believes, is a short-term advantage for Obama — it enables him to coast unchallenged — but a long-term weakness. “With many members of the press cheerleading for his success, he does not get the same kind of pushback that modern presidents — Reagan, Clinton, Carter — normally received.” Obama, he says, ends up “unaccustomed to adapting and changing along with the country . . . he manages to avoid dealing with political reality but struggles to find a narrative — any narrative — that actually connects.”

This sort of point has been made before. I think either Krystal or Goldberg (or both) pushes this idea, that the MFM loves Democrats to Death.

But this is Pat Freakin' Caddell here, Jack.

Thanks to Arthur.
