DAVID BROOKS: This is not the Barack Obama I thought I knew.

Actually, it’s the same Obama it always was. Brooks, and others, were just so excited at the idea of a black President — or, more specifically, at the idea of themselves, voting for a black President — that they suspended all critical faculties. Now it’s buyer’s remorse. We’ll be seeing more of that.

UPDATE: More buyer’s remorse from former Obama supporter Jim Cramer. “And naturally, in response, Obama’s press secretary attacks Cramer by name. Man, the Nixon Obama White House’s enemies list is growing a lot faster than the economy itself.” Well, to be fair, given the state of the economy these days that’s not very hard . . . .

ANOTHER UPDATE: Allah to David Brooks: “You let him off the hook.”

MORE: David Gergen?

STILL MORE: Video of Cramer, and Gibbs.

MORE STILL: Reader Barry Dauphin writes:

Is losing Gergen anything like losing Cronkite?

And what’s the deal with the press secretary?

Beats me. And reader Scott Northwood writes: “While your linking to Jim Crammer comments on the economy why don’t you link to his YouTube video touting Bearn Stearns before the fall. It’s pretty funny and a good lesson to anyone listening to these loudmouths talking heads.” Yeah, his Bear Stearns call was as bad as his Obama call.
