Shep Smith: What the Hell Is Obama Doing?
Piers Morgan: What the Hell Is Obama Doing?

Shep Smith, who is a liberal, is nonetheless perplexed by the State Department's refusal to even mention the Malaysian crash (likely, the shoot-down).

He's not the only Obama Fan who's baffled.

Politico's Blake Hounshell seems, if not baffled, then willing to acknowledge failure:

I hope Obama at least stages a photo-op to tell us that he's not interested in photo-ops.

So we have a choice to believe this is either due to Obama's determination to manipulate the public into not noticing that alarming things are afoot, or his need to personally avoid difficult matters because he Just. Can't. Cope. Any. Longer.

I pray to God that it's the first one.

Look, We're All on a Learning Adventure Together Here, Guys: I quoted Stu Stevens as if he was a liberal critic of Obama, just because he writes at the Daily Beast.

Nope, JeffB tells me: Mitt Romney's former campaign manager.

I've replaced his tweet with one from Blake Hounshell from Politico, which actually was the first one I had in the post, before I swapped it out for Stu Stevens.

I hope Blake Hounshell doesn't turn out to be Newt Gingrich's military affairs advisor.

That last via Dave.

Etymology of "To Cope:" This word has been bothering me lately because I couldn't figure out where it could have come from.

If you care, the answer is -- and I'll let you guess first -- here.
