What are we to make of this, from Fox even: Greta van Susteren blasts Obama’s press conference: ‘You just want to slit your throat almost, it was so depressing’. This is how the story starts:
Fox News host Greta van Susteren expressed dismay Sunday over President Barack Obama’s performance at a Friday press conference, calling it ‘pathetic.’
‘You just want to slit your throat almost, because it was so depressing,’ she declared.
Susteren visited ABC’s ‘This Week’ to comment on the White House’s latest Obamacare rule change released earlier this week. But what started as a conversation on the healthcare law’s prospects soon turned into an attack on Obama’s messaging.
President Screwup is finding that people don’t like what he’s done. I am astonished that the disgust with him and his party has gotten through to him but if it has then that’s something. But if you are looking for pathetic, try this on for size:
‘The president’s most powerful weapon as president is his ability to inspire — that’s his greatest strength,’ Susteren began. ‘And then he comes out last Friday in the press conference. He was depressing, he was pathetic, he sucked the oxygen out of the room. The media beat up on him, the media had bad questions, they kept punching him. I mean, he ends the year where you just want to slit your throat almost, because it was so depressing. He’s completely lost his ability to inspire.’
The president’s most powerful weapon as president is his ability to get various measures enacted into law and to take other actions as needs be. Obama’s problems is that as an executive and leader he is as bad as anyone has ever been, totally unfit for the job he has. Susteren’s comments are so stupid that this woman should be shown the door and sent to work for our ABC.
UPDATE: You might wish to supplement the above with the views of Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit who wrote about Obama’s Average Year. The averaging comes from an old Soviet joke which he quotes:
Ivan: So how was your day?
Ivan: What do you mean, average?
Boris: Worse than yesterday, better than tomorrow. So, average.
