...could this be the start of the media responding to Odungo’s stupidity, the petulant behavior of a ten year old with a history of tantrums?
I doubt it. Woodward, for all his faults, is aware of both his place in history and obama's grotesque ineptitude*. Woodward wants a legacy that says, "I told you so." The rest of the media has no such grasp of history or precedent and can't see past tomorrow morning's breakfast. Like the spoiled children they are, they care about getting their way, "right now," and have little interest in anything beyond that.
*by Obama's "ineptitude," I mean with regards to filling the Constitutionally mandated role of POTUS. As a destroyer of the Constitution and traditional American culture, he's perhaps as competent as one can be.
