The LA Times is having fun now, at Barack's expense:
Over at The Politico we get this:
Of all the pitfalls Barack Obama might face in the presidency, here is one not many people predicted: He is struggling as a public communicator.
The sluggish and unsteady response to the uproar over AIG bonuses highlights a larger problem of his White House: Obama’s surprisingly uneven campaign to educate people about the economic crisis and convince Washington and the broader public that he is in command of circumstances.
Well, yes - he has been on every side of the AIG flap.
This wouldn't be happening if the teleprompter were in charge.
BUT SERIOUSLY: I have the strange yet unsupportable sensation that the White House decision to target Rush was a turning point. Right wing noisemakers (like me!), including Rush, who may have been content to belabor Pelosi, Ried, Dodd, or whomever have shifted their focus to the Not So Great Communicator, and how is that working out?
