Liberals Begin Noticing Something Conservatives Noticed Two Years Ago: Obama Doesn't Really Want To Be President

It's officially the easy lay-up autopilot content for left-wing on-line writers today.

The herd of independent minds, huh?

My favorite of these very similar pieces (and all very similar to observations I and others on the right have been making forever) is from some dullwit at the Atlantic, who claims that Obama now hates his job because his big warm heart can't take all the death and war that comes with the job.

I said it after the convention speech and I'll say it again: If there's something that seems shut down in our once ebulliently optimistic president, it most likely has to do with the wars. Obama is a naturally empathic individual, whose diverse, mobile, international background made him unusually able when it came to assessing new social situations and reading more than people say...

A person of his temperament cannot maintain the same open demeanor when he's dealing with war and death all the time. As, we must recall, Obama has been for years now. If Obama seems shut down, perhaps it is because he has to be to be who he is and do the job he needs to do day in and day out. If his heart didn't seem in it last night, I wonder if it's not in part because the last thing he needs to consider in his work on a day-to-day basis is his heart. It's a long way from being a community organizer, civil-rights lawyer and anti-war state senator to running a drone war that kills innocent civilians, ordering the death of militants, overseeing a policy that's led to an increase in American casualties in Afghanistan, and delivering funereal remarks at a ceremony honoring the returning remains of a slain American diplomat.

Yes, when Obama came bounding out to the podium to brag he'd ordered the killing of Osama bin Ladin, I could see from his visibly bulging erection that he was a deeply empathetic man who cannot abide taking human life.

I could also see, from his palpable glee when cracking jokes at the Press Correspondent's Dinner just minutes after having ordered the strike, that his giddy zingers and How You Like Me Now? demeanor was all just a brave face to mask something deeper, something akin to... regret? Fellow-feeling for all human life?

A jones for murder?

Something.

But I'm sure it's the "compassion" thing, Garance.
