Maureen Dowd has been a bit off her rocker over the years, particularly in favor of the left.
So to see words like these from her column last week came as a certain surprise:
President Obama’s favorite word is “unprecedented,” as Carol Lee of Politico pointed out. Yet he often seems mired in the past as well, letting his hallmark legislation get loaded up with old-school bribes and pork; surrounding himself with Clintonites; continuing the Bushies’ penchant for secrecy and expansive executive privilege; doubling down in Afghanistan while acting as though he’s getting out; and failing to capitalize on snazzy new technology while agencies thumb through printouts and continue their old turf battles.
Methinks Maureen isn’t buying into the Hope & Change anymore.
When Dems prefer to demonize polls that show the President’s plummeting popularity, perhaps they should instead consider the reality of the situation.
