It’s not us, it’s you

Frank Rich does everything but tell Obama to resign in his column today:

The cliché criticisms of Obama are (from the left) that he is a naïve centrist, not the audacious liberal that Democrats thought they were getting, and (from the right) that he is a socialist out to impose government on every corner of American life. But the real problem is that he’s so indistinct no one across the entire political spectrum knows who he is. A chief executive who repeatedly presents himself as a conciliator, forever searching for the “good side” of all adversaries and convening summits, in the end comes across as weightless, if not AWOL. A Rorschach test may make for a fine presidential candidate — when everyone projects their hopes on the guy. But it doesn’t work in the Oval Office: These days everyone is projecting their fears on Obama instead.

  1. At this point, the best thing Obama can do for the Democratic Party is do an LBJ… but do so in time for the DNC to find a real candidate…

    One that can deliver, not one that promises to deliver.
