Thers, over at Whiskey Fire, makes an astute observation:
There’s a kind of bias that comes from paying too close attention to the news cycle, with who “wins the week,” and so forth, and this often causes miscalculations — to keep it simple, Obama just is not threatened right now. No matter how many “gaffes” he makes, or is pretended to have made, so what? The GOP has nobody and nothing, and can’t take advantage of them.
The joke is that Obama probably is politically vulnerable right now, but from the left, which is where the genuinely substantive criticism is coming from. That the Liberal Media is unable to even imagine such a reality tells you everything you need to know about our ridiculous public discourse.
