The honeymoon, it is over.
Four months after the American electorate voted in a self-absorbed political amateur, Obama faces a rather mammoth task of rebuilding a fast dwindling economy. This is certainly no feat for a socialist, but, regardless of his nanny-state leanings, the Chosen One has promised to make everything right. When asked by the ever-smooching CNN why he didn't express "outrage" at the start of the AIG crisis (keep in mind- they were one of his biggest supporters during the election), Mr. President "icily glared" at the offending reporter.
He glared. Icily. At a reporter of little faith.
Why is anyone surprised? This was predicted months ago. A political amateur whose chief abilities include propping up his supposed greatness (but not bowling) and ignoring his allies can't expect that even CNN will always be on his side. Not wanting to look like idiots for having backed a disaster and not being able to cover up everything that goes wrong during the next four years, CNN is going to expect their misplaced faith rewarded. Let me know how that works out.
No, it is not "uncharacteristic" for the Chosen One to make gaffes. Remember the "lipstick on a pig" and "don't worry- we'll pull through this economic crisis"?
If it helps, a Special Olympics bowler has promised to outbowl Obama.
Now that's something to look forward to.
