Ms Marcus Meet Mr. Hanson

Ruth Marcus, Washington Post [1], is puzzled:

It was a jarring moment from an ordinarily smooth pol. Haley Barbour, governor of Mississippi, chairman of the Republican Governors Association and 2012 presidential prospect — which helped explain the big turnout a breakfast Wednesday sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor — was asked why so many people seem to believe that President Obama is Muslim.

“I don’t know why people think what they think,” Barbour said. Fair enough. But then out came this odd statement: “This is a president that we know less about than any other president in history.”

Really?

Ms Marcus meet Victor Davis Hanson who excoriates Obama, from Pajamas Media [2]:

For some reason, Obama believed that those who expected after his campaign promises a real upturn in the economy, or fiscal responsibility, or inspired foreign policy would be satisfied, as they had in the past, merely with soaring rhetoric and superficial reassurance. When they were not, and voiced such displeasure, as ingrates they had supposedly reduced Obama to canine-like status.

Given all that, it is understandable both why America is very worried about what it has wrought — and why Barack Obama is miffed and lashes out.

You would too if both accountability and criticism were novel experiences at 49.

Ms Marcus is naive.  VDH is brutal It is hard to settle on an excerpt.  For some reason Dumbo, a/k/a Dim Won, b/k/a Barack Obama believed he could bluff his way through the presidency by playing golf and giving stump speeches.  Welcome to the real world Mr. President.
