Maybe Obama's Just Not That Good At Politics, Part II

But this time from Andrew Malcolm at the LAT.

"Donald Trump says he's President Obama's worst nightmare," Jay Leno said last night. "No. Having to make a decision is President Obama's worst nightmare."

Huh. I didn't know that. I only watch like six shows on TV (Justified, The Rob Mariano Vote-Out Show, Top Shot, Top Chef, Doctor Who and the comedies on a certain network I don't want to name because the network is a leftwing propagandist outfit), so I usually only hear of this stuff later.

So Fallon thinks he's screwing up and doesn't know what he's doing, and Jay Leno thinks he's incapable of making a decision?

Evidence. You know what comedians are really good at? Being funny, sure. But humor is right on the edge of acceptability and offense, reassurance and shock: Comedians know how to read the room and find that edge.

I was going to quote Malcom's piece more extensively but since it's a litany of Obama's bad optics and bad choices, I think you should just read it.

BTW: Sorry for stopping posting. As you can probably tell, that last post really interested me, and I was learning stuff left and write as I wrote it (or, as I wrote what people were telling me about).
