Self-pity is never an attractive quality, and in an elected head of state even less so. Obama whines that his opponents say it's all his fault. One can argue about whose fault it is, but not, as my colleagues at National Review pointed out, whose responsibility it is: It's his. He's the only president we have. And he made things worse. He increased the national debt by some 70 percent, and what do we have to show for it? No dams, no railroads, no moon shots. Just government, and bureaucracy, and regulation, unto national bankruptcy.But, hey, Sarah Jessica Parker and other celebrity one percenters adore him, so even though he's no give-'em-hell-Harry in the responsibility department, maybe some of their glam will translate into votes and, come November, he will have his Dewey Defeats Truman moment.
What a revolting development that would be.
