Watching Obama Morph Into Nixon
Commentary Magazine ^ | 10.13.2011 | Peter Wehner

Posted on 10/19/2011 3:59:05 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A few months ago, I had dinner with a journalist who knows President Obama somewhat well and admires him in several respects. He told me something that didn’t particularly surprise me – but which was useful to have confirmed. This person’ said Obama is enormously thin-skinned, he remembers and keeps track of negative things said and written about him, and he is a person filled with many more grievances and resentments than one might imagine. He feels sorry for himself – and he is inclined to lash out, in his own emotionally contained way, at even slight criticisms.

I was reminded of that conversation in hearing this exchange between Ed Henry of Fox News and the president.

Henry asked Obama a question related to Iran and, in the course of it, quoted a critical comment about Obama made by Mitt Romney. To which the president responded, with a faux smile, “I didn’t know you were the spokesperson for Mitt Romney.”

For a reporter to ask a president a question that includes a quote from a person from the opposite party is about as common as the sun rising in the east. So what explains the president’s snarky response?

The answer, I think, goes back to what my dinner companions said: Obama is exceedingly thin-skinned. Beyond that, he expects to be coddled by, if not worshiped by, the press. And of course Obama carries a particular resentment for Fox News, which doesn’t treat him as the world-historical, Lincoln-like figure Obama sees himself as.

In their book The Battle for America 2008, Haynes Johnson and Dan Balz wrote this:

[Chief political aide David] Axelrod also warned that Obama’s confessions of youthful drug use, described in his memoir, Dreams From My Father, would be used against him. “This is more than an unpleasant inconvenience,” he wrote. “It goes to your willingness and ability to put up with something you have never experienced on a sustained basis: criticism. At the risk of triggering the very reaction that concerns me, I don’t know if you are Muhammad Ali or Floyd Patterson when it comes to taking a punch. You care far too much what is written and said about you. You don’t relish combat when it becomes personal and nasty. When the largely irrelevant Alan Keyes attacked you, you flinched,” he said of Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate opponent.

Obama has flinched ever since – and he’s flinching now more than ever.

I have commented several times before that as Obama’s presidency collapses, he will have a terrible time processing it. He is becoming increasingly petulant and exasperated, blaming others for his own failures, and even seeing conspiracies (Ed Henry is carrying water for Mitt Romney) where none exist.

It’s a sad thing to watch Barack Obama morph into Richard Nixon.

He’d have to gain a lot of competence to morph into Nixon... and that’s not compliment to Nixon.

Whats the difference between Nixon and Obama?

Nixon was not a crook and did not go to jail.
Obama is a crook and will go to jail.

At least Nixon started from the point having the right position on a lot of issues. Is there anything worse than a paranoid commie? I guess it would be one who has complete police powers.

Obama is a crook and will go to jail.

I think the most we can hope for is deportation if he cannot provide substantive proof of citizenship after Jan 2013.

His two career opportunities will be as a MSNBC personality (reporting from the Havana studio) or run for president of Kenya.

I think the Nixon analogy is weak. I think he is morphing into Captain Queeg right before out eyes. I can already imagine Barry walking around the White House saying..........”Ahh, but the strawberries that’s... that’s where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt and with... geometric logic... that a duplicate key to the wardroom icebox DID exist, and I’d have produced that key if they hadn’t of pulled the Caine out of action. I, I, I know now they were only trying to protect some fellow officers”

You're correct!

President Nixon wasn't always paranoid. He was gone after, tooth and nail, by lefties, from the time he went after stinking Commies, whilst in the House and with full,never ending throttle, once he ran against Helen Gahagan Douglas and beat her ( using pink....standing for PINKO, which she was )for the Senate. That kind of vilification wears a person down, after many decades of pillorying.

‘The Emperor Jones’ is a good look inside Obama’s character and administration IMO. (Or any one in way over their head, of course.) Public relations and the voodoo of the play are a very close analogy too.

I wonder if the play is banned now.

A Landslide Mandate For Change

A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming

Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:

Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.

In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.

We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.

We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.

In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.

Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.

Isn’t it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?

Can’t we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?

And isn’t the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system – a system steeped in racism – no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?

All these things are within reach now!

The most comparable political figure of the 20th Century would be Adolf Hitler who demanded that his country be totally destroyed since its losing the war (or in O's case the 2012 election)it did not deserve to survive.

It may be that the most dangerous 75 days in this countries history will be from next Nov. 6th until January 20, 2013.

Come on, this is not news. The high water mark of the McCain campaign was when they issued all the Youtube videos mocking Obama as a celebrity, comparing him to Paris Hilton, and laughing at his pompous comments about his nomination being the moment the oceans receded by showing clips of Charlton Heston as Moses parting the Red Sea. It worked because it got under Obama's skin and it was obvious. He lashed out at these silly videos in a disproportionate way and it made him look petty and weak. McCain rose, then he selected Palin who really started laying the wood and again, Obama was really irritated by it.

Then McCain stopped it all and endorsed Obama, told us we might as well vote for him since we have nothing to fear from him. But that's another story.

"Nixon knew enough to resign"

Only after being confronted by the Republican leadership, who informed him that they were not going down with the ship he captained.

And that is one of the more curious aspects about the current state of the Democrats (which is dire beyond belief, for a political party).

I made a prediction well over a year ago, that the old guard in the Dim party would, at some point, make it clear to Obama that he was taking the party over a cliff, and that they would not allow him to do that. I fully expected them to give him 'an offer he couldn't refuse', but it appears that the old guard is either too cowed by the Obama cabal, or too clueless, to do that.

I can't believe that they've let this situation fester this long into the 2012 campaign season without moving him out of the way for a new challenger. Perhaps they're resigned to their fate, and are ready to face their long wandering in the political wilderness.

The Democrats are now trapped by that which they used to their advantage in the past: Race.
