O: Et tu, Maureen Dowd?

June 3, 2012

Our president: Et tu, Maureen Dowd, NY Times top opinion woman?!? | Then fall, re-election!?!

Maureen Dowd, New York Times opinion prima donna.

Maureen Dowd finally gets something right. And outstandingly right, at that:

Cook [(actual non-composite white friend of female persuasion)] told Maraniss that she thought Obama’s desire to “play out a superhero life” was “a very strong archetype in his personality.”

But superheroes and mythic figures must boldly lead. Obama’s caution — ingrained from a life of being deserted by his father and sometimes his mother, and of being, as he wrote to another girlfriend, “caught without a class, a structure, or tradition to support me” — has restrained him at times.

In some ways, he’s still finding himself, too absorbed to see what’s not working. But the White House is a very hard place to go on a vision quest, especially with a storm brewing.  http://to.ly/dKyq
