Discord and Disarray Won't Help Obama Legacy

He is an entirely contrived figure. Essentially, he is the first black president. That is it and that is all that matters to most of the so-called press. Your description of him is exactly what I thought after seeing him a few times and listening (actually listening to his words) to him. He is pretty much a standard liberal with a late 60's, early 70's ideology that delivers a nice speech. The media cannot question him because that would mean exposing his shallowness and they cannot do that to a black liberal president. If you are equating intellect with wisdom, then Obama is not there. He is a politician, maybe a smart one, but that doesn't mean he is wise. I see a petchulent child who knows how to play the game, nothing more.

Jeff -

I disagree.

I disagree with your spelling of "petulant" - everything else is spot-on.

Barack Obama is said to believe that he can win the political fight over the sequester. That's certainly the conventional wisdom.

And there is some evidence to support it. When you ask voters who will be to blame if the sequester occurs, Obama or "congressional Republicans," they're much more likely to say they'll blame the latter.

Obama also comes out on top when you ask whether they will blame "Obama and congressional Democrats" or "congressional Republicans."

There's reason to wonder, however, whether reaction after something happens will be the same as what people predict before it does.

Voters are not always...
