The preezy of the United Steezy is making me queasy.I’m not troubled by President Obama’s slow jam with Jimmy Fallon, who dubbed the commander in chief “preezy” during Obama’s appearance on late-night TV. No, preezy is making me queasy because his nonstop campaigning is looking, well, sleazy — and his ad suggesting that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have killed Osama bin Laden is just the beginning of it.
Milbank still manages to blame the Republicans for much of Obama’s non-stop campaign, which never really stopped even after he won in 2008. The O logo never went away. The trappings of campaign, from the organizer army to the campaign rhetoric and fundraising, never went away. The lightworking prince of hopenchange has already gone negative scorched earth, attacking Mitt Romney for his wealth half a year before a legal vote is cast. But at least Dana Milbank, who is usually in the tank, already finds the preezy’s antics sleazy. There’s a glimmer of hope in this piece that some in the media are tiring of the charades.
