Media can no longer ignore Obama’s or Hillary’s problems

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore.

Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job.

A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks about NBA ratings and where he will live when he leaves. And having stopped being president, he has also stopped being presidential — Politico reported last week of a rally, “So punchy was he that he was leaning arms hanging off the front of his podium, telling a few hecklers to ‘sit down’ and instructing the Secret Service not to bother removing them, Obama said he was feeling liberated. … ‘I don’t have to run for office anymore, so I can just let it rip,’ he said.”
