Peggy Noonan: A Thousand Days Late and 5 Trillion Dollars Short

I'm sorry, but are you effin' kidding me Peggy?

Something's happening to President Obama's relationship with those who are inclined not to like his policies. They are now inclined not to like him. His supporters would say, "Nothing new there," but actually I think there is. I'm referring to the broad, stable, nonradical, non-birther right. Among them the level of dislike for the president has ratcheted up sharply the past few months.

It's not due to the election, and it's not because the Republican candidates are so compelling and making such brilliant cases against him. That, actually, isn't happening.

What is happening is that the president is coming across more and more as a trimmer, as an operator who's not operating in good faith. This is hardening positions and leading to increased political bitterness. And it's his fault, too. As an increase in polarization is a bad thing, it's a big fault.

Uhhhh ... ok. You can read the rest of her reasoning, but, honestly, why bother?

I guess it makes sense if you believed the crap Obama was selling in 2008.

Oh, wait. Peggy did!

The rest of us, though, get to say "we told her so". Over, and over and over. And, not to leave out Iowahawk ...

But now, Dame Noonan declares "Obama increasingly comes across as devious and dishonest."

NO! NO HE DOESN'T! He's been devious and dishonest since day one, you idiot! You were just too stupid or starstruck or whatever to see it.

I mean, honestly, is anyone surprised by the race-baiting or any of the other crap we're getting from a "community organizer" who sat in Reverend Wright's "church" for twenty years and was a member of the socialist New Party?

Oh, screw it. I'll have what Peggy's having.


Note: I have asked Jack M., our resident expert on Dame Noonan, to add his thoughts. He is currently suffering from a severe watercress sandwich reaction but I hope to have his input as the election season progresses.
