TIME: “…the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless…”


TIME’s article on Obama’s political incompetency is worth a read….and the article invokes the biggest “DUH!?!?!” quote of the day.

With the exception of core Obama Administration loyalists, most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters.

Spot on, TIME.  Now you understand what many of us have understood for almost two years.
 
Only argument I have with the article is that they begin with the premise that Obama looks at things from a normal, American perspective and that the circumstances are squeezing his political efforts.
 
I would argue a premise that says Obama has a worldview that is 180 degrees out from most Americans….therefore, the policies, comments, and views he espouses do little to help him politically.  
 
Obama is the anti-American in a country that, in majority numbers, continues to be center-right and much more likely to defend America and its ideals….scars and all.
(UPDATE:  After reading other bloggers on this issue, I am reminded by the bloggers at Conservatives4Palin that Halperin (TIME) is basically confirming what Palin said months ago…..Obama is in over his head!)
