At a San Francisco fundraiser yesterday, the President had this to say:
Speak for yourself, Mr. President. Our ambition, imagination and will is completely intact -- it's just that we're saddled with a leader who neither understands nor respects the American character, and then projects his inadequacies onto us.
President Obama's attitude is reminiscent of the apocryphal story of a soldier's mother who, watching troops march in formation, commented, "Oh, look, everyone's out of step but my Johnny."
The American people aren't the ones who are "out of step" here.
Even in the midst of a cross-country move, I can't resist commenting on President Obama's newest mind-meld with Jimmy Carter, President Malaise.
