Why I am Starting to Like Obama

Why am I starting to like Obama?  Because he has finally managed to show people who he really is. It happened just a day or two ago.  Pat Sajak put it well when he said that the President’s off-hand, anti-entrepreneurial comment was a revelatory cornucopia:

It’s as if President Obama climbed into a tank, put on his helmet, talked about how his foray into Cambodia was seared in his memory, looked at his watch, misspelled “potato” and pardoned Richard Nixon all in the same day.

Yes, that’s about right.  And Sajak is also right that “Defining moments in politics are strange beasts. Sometimes they’re only recognized in hindsight, while sometimes they throw the train off the tracks before a sentence has been completed. Sometimes their effect can be contained and minimized, while sometimes their effect on the political narrative mestastasizes. This one is very bad for the White House.”

As the Heavy Dragoon chorus in Patience put it: “Yes, Yes,, Yes, Yes, Yes!”
