As the days tick down toward inauguration, Obama remains Mr. Cool. His advisers say he makes decisions more confidently than anyone they've ever watched in politics. He's fashioning a new style of governing, as if by instinct. He's rebuilding a center that many analysts thought was impossible. He's heading into the loneliest, most difficult terrain on earth, and he's still making it look easy. But it won't be.It should be noted that this is not the first time Ignatius has referred to Obama as Mr. Cool. From back in May:
What's compelling about Obama is that fusion of grace and ambition. He's playing for the highest stakes, but he makes it look easy. That cool, graceful quality evokes John F. Kennedy and the Rat Pack -- all these sleek, handsome men in silk suits and skinny ties who never break character, never miss a beat.Damn dude, just blow the guy while you're down there.
With a hard-hitting, attack-dog press corps like this, why would the President even bother having competence or transparency in office. Even ball-busting media programs like PBS: Frontline are giving Obama a pass. What a joke. On the plus side, it makes this blog look like it's run by huge assholes, haha.
