SocraticGadfly: The seven new story lines of Obama

The seven new story lines of Obama

Yes, that title is a deliberate bit of “seven last words” wordplay on Obama as Messiah. But, the seven story lines Obama probably doesn’t want to gain traction are all straight from Politico. And, they all have at least a grain of truth, if not more — some more than others.

And, the deal is, many of them have gained traction from ineptitude of either White House Staff, The One himself, or both.

That’s all the more surprising because, as New York Magazine notes, even within the realm of the modern presidency, no president has been more dedicated to image management than Obama.
