Another great moment in the very brief history of the "new civility"




.

Simultaneously raising the level of discourse, while turning its cover story over to Trig (Palin) Truther, Andrew Sullivan, in a byline which also appears in The Daily Beast... what could possibly go wrong?



Looking on the upside, it did not appear that Sullivan resorted to the race card in critiquing any of the entirely valid and sound reasons for taking exception to the mryiad of the President's policies, so that's a start.

As far as we could tell, this outsmarting the President's adversaries is a combination of bizarro world logic where porkulus and the bailouts are all deemed successes, some odd notion of a "long game" where the President will build upon these alleged successes and, of course, lowering the bar on expectations because it was all really Bush's fault that put him in this near-insurmountable hole.



“Given the enormity of what he inherited, and given what he explicitly promised, it remains simply a fact that Obama has delivered in a way that the unhinged right and purist left have yet to understand or absorb,” Sullivan wrote. “Their short-term outbursts have missed Obama’s long game — and why his reelection remains, in my view, as essential for this country’s future as his original election in 2008.”




We're running short on time this morning but we want to touch on something briefly that has largely been ignored, particularly by the President's supporters and that is this: Process was supposed to matter (this time).

We were under the impression that it was no longer going to be business as usual yet Washingto D.C., under the Obama brand is just as corrupt, cynical and detached as ever. K Street is stuffed more than ever with lobbyists and its a virtual revolving door between his top economic advisory positions and Wall Street. And the cherry on top was his #1 legislative achievement, ObamaCare where terms like Gator Aid, the Louisiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback will live in infamy for a ground-breaking entitlement program that was greased through Congress in a bigger and thicker cloud of back room smoke than we can ever recall.

All the while, folks like Sullivan want to whistle past that graveyard proving that HopenChange had a shelf life not extending much past January 20, 2009 and an extremely selective memory, at that.
