Bobby Jindal Drops Out of GOP Race

The only guy who wasn't getting traction who should have stayed in.


Meanwhile, Ms. Obama admits she's arrogant.

Here's President Obama on the hardest lesson he has learned in office: "You canít separate good policy from the need to bring the American people along and make sure that they know why youíre doing what youíre doing. And thatís particularly true now in this new communications era."

That admission came during a sit-down Obama did with HBO's Bill Simmons for a spread in GQ magazine, which named the two its men of the year. Obama acknowledged to Simmons that in the first few years of his presidency, "a certain arrogance crept in, in the sense of thinking as long as we get the policy ready, we didnít have to sell it."

In addition, Caitlyn Obama is getting some more criticism from her fellow Democrats.

"I don't want him shooting from the hip and making empty threats, but I think he could have done a better job in articulating the anger that many people feel toward what happened in not only Paris but Beirut as well," said Democratic strategist Jim Manley, a former adviser to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

"What happened in Paris and in Beirut is going to require an aggressive response."

Those comments echoed Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinsonís assessment that Obamaís tone "was all wrong" in addressing the Paris attacks.

Typically an Obama ally, Robinson in a column published on Tuesday wrote that "at times he was patronizing, at other times he seemed annoyed and almost dismissive."

"That's not the tone you want to strike to the public, that's not the tone you want to send to our allies and enemies," said Democratic strategist Brad Bannon.
