So, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive?
Obama talks like a rooster and acts like a chicken.
The Obama administration says Fox News isn't a real News organization. Every time they say that they prove Obama isn't a real Leader. A real Leader faces criticism head on and doesn't try to marginalize and run away from his critics. A real leader proves his critics wrong. A lot of people didn't like where Bush led America, and a lot did like him, but Bush , whether you liked him or not, did LEAD. He never dithered on his policies and never tried to cut CNN or MSNBC out. Those outfits did a lot more negative stories on Bush than Fox has done on Obama but Bush was never whimpy and petty about it. When CBS and Dan Rather ran a story using phony documents about Bush (that Rather had to admit later were fake), did Bush go after CBS like Obama goes after Fox? No, because Bush unlike Obama didn't fear his opponents, he wasn't ruled by fear.
What happened to the Obama that was above petty politics? He sold himself as the transcendent one that would bring everybody together. This guy is a pure product of Chicago Politics.
