I’m far from the only one who thinks the White House media machine is full of rusty gears. Here’s Toby Young in this morning’s Telegraph:
Unless [White House Press Secretary Jay] Carney is capable of raising his game, he needs to be thrown under a bus. President Obama is coming dangerously close to snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Somehow, he and his Press Secretary have created the impression that Operation Geronimo was carried out by the Keystone Kops rather than an elite unit of Navy SEALs. In fact, the only amateurs in this unfolding story are in the White House.
Of course, it’s been the case that the military is the only well-run operation in Washington for nearly twenty years now. But the depths of this Administration’s clumsiness still astounds sometimes.
