The Blame Game [rdbrewer]

Remember when we started talking about Obama's inevitable temper tantrum over a year ago? I was just reminded of that this week with the White House's lashing out at, well, pretty much everybody: Wall Street, apathetic Democrats, Boehner, the Chamber of Commerce, the "professional left," Rove, congressional Republicans, congressional Democrats, bankers, the "rich" (for not spending money), Israel, Arizona, Fox News (his go-to, evergreen Emmanuel Goldstein) , the TEA Party, Limbaugh, Beck, Bush, police, insurance companies, the media (for "distorting" the news), doctors, and, of course, America. I'm sure there are others, like the recent, preemptive, "Don't make me look bad" (or I'll have to lash out at you too). Mostly it has been serial lashing out, but lately there has been a bit of an overlap--a logjam of blame. All of this hearkens back to something Ace mentioned last January--something that Victor Davis Hanson touched on yesterday--that there is always a "they" to spirit away the sins of Reverse Jesus.

Boy, what a tantrum. It's a symphony of rage with many interesting grace notes along the way, like the generic slurpee sipper bogeyman--probably the same guy who talks about Obama like a dog. And, geez, will he be sore after the election. I don't see him turning the corner, like Clinton, because that might indicate The One was wrong about something. After all, a "Custer decision" cannot be reversed.

Narcissists. You meet one, you've met 'em all.
