Ruth Marcus, writing at the Washington Post, both bona-fide members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, writes about Obama’s ‘Where’s Waldo?’ presidency
For a man who won office talking about change we can believe in, Barack Obama can be a strangely passive president. There are a startling number of occasions in which the president has been missing in action – unwilling, reluctant or late to weigh in on the issue of the moment. He is, too often, more reactive than inspirational, more cautious than forceful.
This is not news to conservative columnists and bloggers such as myself, who were writing about how Obama was “unwilling, reluctant or late to weigh in on the issue of the moment” back in 2008 before the election.
Where’s Obama? No matter how hard you look, sometimes he’s impossible to find.
Hardly surprising, for a man whose Congressional record was that of voting “present.”
