"It's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we're talking with each other in a way that -- that heals, not in a way that wounds." -- President Obama, speech at Tuscon memorial service, January 12, 2011.
"The [Suskind] book amounts to a drive-by shooting of a president and his key economic advisers who deserve encomiums, not unfounded second guessing and inaccurate revisionist history." -- Former Obama car czar Steve Rattner, writing at the Politico, October 2, 2011 [emphasis added].
So less than nine months after President Obama pronounces pious words about talking "in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds," the Obama White House sends out a designated hitter to accuse a respected author of a "drive-by shooting" of the president and his advisers. Nice. [Via Mike Allen's Politico Playbook.]

You’re fired, Barky.
Hit the road.
Steve is a mouth piece that will not debate you if he knows that you are not from his “side.”
Where have all Baraq’s economic team gone?
Back to academia it appears.
Pity the poor students if any of these genius profs are actually teaching in the classroom....
Once I got to a dictionary, I can't stop laughing.
Where do you think these clowns got their degrees in the first place?
I think he just learned a new word and wanted to use it in a sentence.
Nobody really talks like that.
” the Obama White House sends out a designated hitter to accuse a respected author of a “drive-by shooting” of the president and his advisers.
I think the Obama white house needs a visit by a congressional committee, for attempting to plant the “seed of assassination” by suggestion.
Brilliant use of thesaurus award to the author! +2 points! LOL
I had to look up the word, too. This journalist definitely looks the other way when it comes to writing for a 6th grade education — show off! LOL
Could the author also have used “hagiography?”
