Well, President Obama finally got serious about the downed civilian airplane. But this president cannot be taken too seriously, unfortunately.
Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt Thursday passionately described a key reason why Obama is unable to make authoritative statements anymore, noting that a president who is always trying to throw PR bling at the country gets lots of attention but entirely dilutes himself.
Obama of course starts out rather diluted to begin with. And his constant appearances are often goofy or demeaningly political. And then there’s the matter of his failed policies, indecision and empty threats.
But I digress.
According to Stirewalt:
His endless talking, his endless fundraising, his endless effort to control every fifteen minutes of every news cycle saps him of the ability to speak with authority and resolution when he needs to.
This president is not only spent – he’s sick of the job – but he’s also broke. That is, he has spent down all his political capital – nobody wants to work with him – and he is in the process of completing what seems to one of his main projects: Totally depleting the stature of his office.
