Give me a break.
He has had a wonderful vacation and sight-seeing tour ... at taxpayer expense!
Oh, my. What an idiot.
Heroic????? I think he meant to say “moronic” but wasn’t “man” enough to say so.
The link doesn’t say what the text you posted does.
His man purse got on the way :)
So it is heroic to ignore the American people, spend trillions growing government and do absolutely nothing to grow jobs outside of Washington DC. Republicans like David Brooks are the problem. They are idiots and soft and value their standing among liberals than they do the truth.
Seriously, does Brooks have bisexual leanings?
That’s an interesting way of putting it.
Brooks has bought into Obamanism hook, line and sinker. It seems that he goes out of his way to sing the praises of his “messiah”.
Hotair quotes Brooks as saying, “He doesn’t have green underwater engineering,” but if you’ll listen to the clip, he actually said, “He doesn’t have a degree in underwater engineering.”
The “heroic” statement is asinine. Did Brooks perhaps mean to say “historic”? I could agree with that, in a bad way.
Good one, Dave!
I don’t agree about the heroic presidency.
But there’s another subtler point that he’s making, which is this:
For those on the Left who expect government do make everything work, this is extra surprising, and observe that it is the Left that is bellowing longest and loudest against Obama right now.
For those on the Right that know government is ultimately not the answer to all problems, this is less surprising and disheartening. We already knew that Obama was not a Messiah, so now we are just watching our correct interpretation of his character unfold, whereas for the Left this is another notch down for their estimation of their Annointed One. (Remember around the time he made a decision on Afghanistan there was widespread disappointment on the Left about that fact that he didn’t pull out troops.)
However much we on the Right hate this debacle, its both tragic and predictable.
The poor little pillow-biter has had his head banged against the headboard one too many times....
Heroic? Mr. “Vote Present”? Harry Truman once said, “The buck stops here.” Obama says, “The buck never got here.”
Pink shirts. Bow ties. New York Times.
You're too kind. I'd take you all home but they don't allow pets in my apartment. "Bump -tsschhh!"!
“Pink shirts. Bow ties. New York Times.”
All I can tell you is that, from the POV of a heterosexual woman, Brooks comes across as ‘bi-curious’ at best.
heroic = redistributes more
What a bloody clown. Obama is wrong on everything, is that heroic?
Now that he's been in office for a year and a half, many folks who voted for him don't have any illusions anymore. Hearing the media say the same stuff they said when he was running is going to sound pretty silly, and downright false, to those disillusioned voters.
Brooks = Quisling
He probably follows EPA guidelines for outdoor grilling air pollution. I.E, no smoke, no char. He would ask you if you remember the FDA temp/time graphs for salmonella safe meats.
Agreed; metrosexual At Best. But as you aptly pointed out, nurture plays a role. Brooks works for a paper that glorifies the gay lifestyle in pretty much every issue. Maybe over time Brooks became convinced he’s missing out on something intriguing. Who knows.
Brooks is a racist. A condescending guilty racist, but a racist nonetheless. He’ll never hold Obama to any standards.
I’m guessing he meant “heroic” in the sense that I “took a heroic” this morning.
Is Brooks gay? He writes like he’s on the verge of being outed, and wants to keep it under wraps.
I hear Ubama has improved his golf game, too.
Yes, he is. I believe he used to be known as "David Brock".
Now if this Obama Droid would have only applied his “the government can’t do everything” to the health care debate. Then he might have some credibility.
Dems have a low bar - they’re “heroic” if they can read off a teleprompter while chewing gum...
You forgot the barf alert.
Guys like David Brooks are tools the media use to create the illusion they want for themselves as well as for the World. To their way of thinking, they have a "good guy Republican" in David Brooks. If they or their consumers think David Brooks represents conservatism in any way, they are only fooling themselves. Reality will catch up sooner or later. I think the forces of conservatism has a pretty big advantage there, if they will get a grip and stand strong instead of rolling over in fear of the media.
Because it's going to happen no matter what the forces of conservatism do.
