Here’s a riddle: How could Barack Obama have been the “adult in the room,” as Norah O’Donnell says, when by his own strategy he avoided being in the room at all?

CHARLIE ROSE: “It’s an interesting conversation the President has. He seems to be wanting to identify with the frustration in the country – to point out there’s been economic loss – but did say, we can’t let this happen again, and we need to work together.”
NORAH O’DONNELL: “And I think, also, to be – sort of, the grown-up in the room, and to look forward and say, here are the three ways we can now work together. And I think he’s gone back to the message that has been a signature message for – for President Obama – we’re not Democrats; we’re Republicans – we’re Americans – that disagreement should not mean dysfunction. But I think we’ll see what happens in the coming months.”
CHARLIE ROSE: “Republicans will probably be saying, these are words – how do we define action?”

This is two liberals talking among themselves about how great another liberal is.

During the shutdown, Barack Obama refused to negotiate at all, while his executive branch agencies did the “adult” thing and shut down memorials, parks, restaurants, part of the ocean, and parking lots to make the partial shutdown hurt worse than it had to. They locked old people in a hotel and shuttered a self-sufficient colonial farm. That’s being the “adult in the room?” Seems to me it’s being the biggest jerk in the world.

We hate to break your heart, Norah, but according to the employees and, uh, 'patrons' of Man's Country on Halstead Street in Chicago, you're not Dear Leader's type as he prefers "older white men" as stated in Jerome Corsi's article at WND. But, with the revolving door policy afforded to members of the msm, you've got a 50/50 shot of a position in Dear Leader's administration. But, evidently if you are gay, black (partly black will do), he/she, pedophile, molestor or have a much better chance. Don't worry about security clearances; hell, most of the current members didn't meet the qualifications either, but who cares, right?

Remember BENGHAZI!

Obama would not be the only adult in the room even if he were in a phone booth.

Well, nothng will change between now and January, when we get to start this whole kabuki dance again.
Oh, wait, the Obamacare website will be thrashing around, signing up dozens of people a day.
I'll bet the adult Obama is banging on the meeting door, begging to enact some "delay" in Obamacare, until all the bugs are worked out.
Then he can hold a press conference and say that the Repubs don't care about poor, sick people.

These people's willingness to express these views on recorded media is astounding. How do they think these comments will serve them when the tide turns?
