Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom isn’t just losing control of his own caucus on Capitol Hill — he’s losing control of his own staff. Mark Thiessen explains:

In today’s Wall Street Journal, senior officials leak how they desperately tried to talk Obama out of his “head-spinning reversal” on airstrikes and his decision to go to Congress. “He received swift — and negative — responses from his staff,” the Journal reports. National security adviser Susan Rice, we learn, warned that “he risked undermining his powers as commander in chief.” Senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel “also raised concerns.” But Obama ignored their advice and “took the gamble anyway.”

Such loyalty.

One of the Democrats’ historic strengths is that they don’t tell on their own. We still haven’t gotten the definitive insider account of the Clinton years, and likely never will. But you have to wonder if this will hold true for Wiggleroom, because stories like these indicate that a lot of people are wanting to put a lot of visible space in between themselves and their feckless, amateur boss.

I'm not sure that "Served on Obama's Second Term Staff" is going to be a net positive on a resume in 2017.

Clinton's saving grace was that he could charm a room. He liked retail politics. Obama disdains it, and it shows in dealing with Congress.

Clinton had Sandy Burglar steal incriminating evidence from the National Archives....only God knows what all else is still hidden.

In a nation unserious and deluded enough to elect this man TWICE, I'll reserve judgment as to whether he's headed for a "fall."

Well, when your feckless amateur staff is trying to separate from their boss because he's a humiliation to THEM...you know you have hit the "Scandal In The Wind" replay button too many times on your "I" tunes ego player.

Then Obama came along. No one fears the guy.
