Skip to comments.Analysis: Cool Obama takes the heat (Can't connect the dots but "he's so cool")
Posted on 01/08/2010 7:38:23 AM PST by tobyhill
For the sixth time in 11 days, President Barack Obama was back before the cameras Thursday, talking about airline safety and anti-terrorism. He then left quickly for a second White House room to meet with Senate chairmen and press them to have a health care bill on his desk no later than next month.
Two very different issues with one common thread: Obama engaging, shedding his famous detachment after watching the intensity of his support drop dramatically since last spring.
To get health care, he must be both a broker and a buffer, absorbing the heat for difficult decisions at a time when Democratic leaders in the House and Senate have largely exhausted their own political capital and much of their caucuses. In the case of terrorism, Obama recognizes too that he must be more out front, responding to the publics gut fears and anger after the attempted attack on a U.S. airliner Christmas Day. Ultimately, the buck stops with me, he said.
As a candidate, Obamas cool was never fatal because so many voters simply imposed their own dreams on him. But wrapped in the bubble of the Oval Office and surrounded by Ivy-educated budget and economic advisers, this detachment is magnified and hurts him with lawmakers and voters alike, looking for more of a connection amid tough times.

All "wee wee'd up"
Same as Carter, can’t delegate tasks and burned all his support bridges for help.
This fool is going to be a mess in another year.
I think he’s more angry with al Qaeda for screwing up his domestic agenda and his vacation than with trying to kill 300+ Americans on Christmas Day
When in his position and not knowing what you are doing, it’s best to act cool. Don’t under estimate him though. He knows what he is doing when it comes to ruining this country. I believe this is the plan and he is doing pretty good. It needs to stop and stop now.
How about a man who hasn't a clue how to lead and is so far out of his depth its painful.
Yeah the Narccisist got anry only when he HAD to utter the words “the Buck stops with me”
Now THAt really piss him off.
Its always about HIM.
And there are many golf courses out there to keep him busy while the czars and Dem leaders, i.e., Rage and Stretch, dismantle the Republic to third world standards and conditions.
With any luck, he’ll be a quacking lame duck by this time next year, and he won’t be able to destroy our country any more.
“Independent observers on the right see Obamas detachment as a sign of drift. Those to the left see a smart man prone to step back always and take a longer look.”
People who are dealing with reality see Obama’s detachment as cluelessness, incompetence, and indifference. The only way Zero can be considered “cool”, is by correctly recognizing and acknowledging that he could care less about anything that doesn’t promote or interest him.
Obama is a ridiculous fool.
He’s cool, all right.
As in absolute Ozero.
Were he to become a cretin, he’d increase his intellect by a very large percentage.
“This fool is going to be a mess in another year.”
You are being too kind and I admire you for it but the fool is already in a mess and he is trying to make sure we are in the mess with him.
We can and will stop him
Oh brother, after blaming everyone else for it now the "buck stops here"? What a pathetic, narcissistic, lying little schmuck.
Just googling "Obama blames" brings up these recent "blames" he laid on everyone else:
Dec. 29 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama blamed a mix of human and systemic failures for the security breach
Obama blames 'series of human errors' on missed plane bomber
President Obama blames attempted airline bombing on an "isolated extremist"
Obama Blames Intelligence Failures for Flight 253 - TIME
Obama Blames Al Qaeda For Christmas Attack
I'm not sure my sanity can take 3 more years of this Marxist.
“Its always about HIM”
Unless he is talking about “OUR” failure or how “WE” need to change or “WE” did not do. Then it’s “WE”.
But when glory and adoration is the topic, it’s all “ME” and “I”.
“To get health care, he must be both a broker and a buffer, absorbing the heat for difficult decision...”
Obama and his thugs have no concept of the magnitude of the heat that’s gonna come if they pass this unconstitutional monstrosity.
Just my humble prediction.
If Chavez sends his Venezuelan Army to invade Florida, we have just got to stop them before they get to Disney World so we can read them their rights and get them each an attorney.
Fonzie humped the shark.
Noted a lot of blinkink when he gave his speech wonder why?.
blinkink / blinking glasses where are they.
