JAMES TARANTO: Not a Dictator: Obama’s declaration of ineffectuality.
By saying “I’m not a dictator,” then, Obama is admitting that he is ineffectual: that he lacks the political skill either to strike a compromise or to bend his opponents to his will. He concluded his press conference in an even more passive vein, hoping that “Congress comes to its senses a week from now, a month from now, three months from now.”
The country’s in the very best of hands.
