American Thinker Blog has a short article on how the dying Mainstream Media has finally begun to acknowledge the obvious: that the narcissitic, inexperienced, neo-socialist President Obama is failing miserably:
Seth Leibsohn writing in the National Review summarized it this way:
“This is reminiscent of the Jimmy Carter years – the last time the U.S. was seen as weak – unable to move and coax other countries, unable to reassure dependent allies, unable to have the respect of the world and, of course, unable to move the mullocracy of Iran.”
Even the liberal media are beginning to question the effectiveness of the President.
The NYT reports: “China held firm against most American demands. With China’s micro-management of Mr. Obama’s appearances in the country, the trip did more to showcase China’s ability to push back against outside pressure than it did to advance the main issues on Mr. Obama’s agenda, analysts said.”
The Washington Post: “If there was any significant change during this trip, in fact, it was in the United States’ newly conciliatory and sometimes laudatory tone. . . . Obama’s trip stood in stark contrast to visits by his predecessors.”
The Times stated that Obama was given “less respect than was given presidents Bush or Clinton.”
All of the above quotes can be found in this highly recommended post by Seth Leibsohn. He concluded his piece:
“Not a very good first year for America, or the world, under a new leadership that promised a new respect, a new start, and a new way of doing business. It’s new alright – it just isn’t any good.”
And when rats start to desert the sinking ship, it gets ugly.
