More Sycophant Delusions
Ever wonder what a typical cocktail party conversation among liberal elites on the upper East Side sounds like?
Probably a lot like the conversation Charlie Rose had, on Thursday, with Moneyball author and former New Republic editor Michael Lewis when he offered excuses for Barack Obama’s unpopularity.
When Rose asked the current Bloomberg View columnist why Obama had become “such a liability” to the Democratic Party in this 2014 election cycle, Lewis responded that it was “unfair” and then predicted: “I think history is going to be very kind to him...the year after he’s out people are going to miss him.” Lewis also blamed Obama’s current unpopularity on Americans just looking for a scapegoat for their unhappiness:
“People, when they’re unhappy, they blame the President. The American people are not sitting where he’s sitting, seeing what he’s seeing. They don’t see the complexity of the decisions he’s gotta make. And I think that a lot of what’s wrong in the world is not, it’s not actually his fault. I feel like I’m happy the country is in his hands. I think his heart’s in the right place. I think he’s really smart.”
