    Good MoDo, good

    Good MoDo, good

    When MoDo is good, she’s really good.  When she’s bad, she’s really bad.

    This is really good MoDo:

    Reagan didn’t socialize with the press. He spent his evenings with Nancy, watching TV with dinner trays. But he knew that to transcend, you can’t condescend.

    The portrait of the first couple in Jodi Kantor’s new book, “The Obamas,” bristles with aggrievement and the rational president’s disdain for the irrational nature of politics, the press and Republicans. Despite what his rivals say, the president and the first lady do believe in American exceptionalism — their own, and they feel overassaulted and underappreciated.

    We disappointed them.

    I wonder what the Editors of the NY Times would say if this were written by someone at a conservative publication, or stated by Newt Gingrich.  Well, we know the answer to that.

    The press is finally realizing Obama is not their friend. He doesn’t like them. He uses them. He gives them press releases, and nothing real. Staged photos. Closed meetings. Churlish behavior, incompetent press secretaries.

      I’m inclined to go further than saying Obama doesn’t like the press, IMO Obama “likes” very few people other than a carefully selected circle who either are as vapid and empty as he is or willing to fake it.

      If you’re always worried that people would find out you were a fake O guess you might not be very casually friendly – hard to always keep lies straight.
