It is arguable that, because of his inexperience, Obama is not ready for the presidency. It is arguable that McCain, because of his boiling moralism and bottomless reservoir of certitudes, is not suited to the presidency. Unreadiness can be corrected, although perhaps at great cost, by experience. Can a dismaying temperament be fixed?
George Will should be explaining why he favored Obama over McCain in 2008. These pseudo-intellectuals (Will, Noonan, et al.) strained to find reasons to ignore the obvious, that Obama would be a train-wreck for America as we knew it, so they could flaunt their enlightenment at their Beltway parties. It will take generations, if ever, to undo the damage that Obama has done, and we can thank George Will for his part in bringing that about.
Oh, I remember that well. He’s got to be eating those words. And I don’t think I’ve read anything by him since then...until just now.
His article today was smokin’.
