Teased about his over relieance on the teleprompter, President Obama decided last night to use a jumbotron in only his second White House press conference.
This is like listening to the sight impaired read aloud; but we wouldn’t want to offend the sight impaired.
Eventually, in Amerian politics, even the slickest, most packaged guy will get unwrapped.
This is it.
Too bad the media assited in the packaging of the messiah before the election: now we have a president losing the confidence of the American people in a time of crisis.
What is worse is this: he seems to be losing his own confidence: his own sense of self and reality.
