At this point, not even establishment moonbats can take the erstwhile Anointed One seriously as he flounders pathetically amid the ruin he has made of the Democrat Party. WaPo’s Dana Milbank shakes his head in grief over the dishonor Obama has brought to the presidency by subjecting himself to Jon Stewart’s ridicule:
On Comedy Central, the joke was on President Obama Wednesday night.
The president had come, on the eve of what will almost certainly be the loss of his governing majority, to plead his case before Jon Stewart, gatekeeper of the disillusioned left. But instead of displaying the sizzle that won him an army of youthful supporters two years ago, Obama had a Brownie moment.
The Daily Show host was giving Obama a tough time about hiring the conventional and Clintonian Larry Summers as his top economic advisor.
“In fairness,” the president replied defensively, “Larry Summers did a heckuva job.”
“You don’t want to use that phrase, dude,” Stewart recommended with a laugh.
Dude. The indignity of a comedy show host calling the commander in chief “dude” pretty well captured the moment for Obama.
Try to imagine Ronaldus Magnus crawling into a playpen to unsuccessfully beg a professional clown for approval.
A low point in American history came after Stewart asked,
“You wouldn’t say you’d run this time as a pragmatist? It wouldn’t be, ‘Yes we can, given certain conditions?'”
“I think what I would say is yes we can, but — ”
Stewart, and the audience, laughed at the “but.”
Obama didn’t laugh.
Stewart’s liberal audience wasn’t laughing with him, but at him — and at anyone who still takes this tragic farce of a presidency seriously.
