Papering Over Obama’s Record

As I have said before, I feel sorry for the people who run Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Their assignment is to come up with an irrelevant diversion to distract attention from Obama’s indefensible record, not just once or twice, but every day from now until November. Sure, their task is made easier by a compliant news media, but still: trying to draw attention to everything under the sun, except what voters actually care about, must be wearying. Michael Ramirez illustrates the point, brilliantly:

Many people are frustrated by the fact that the Obama distraction campaign is “working,’ in that the Democratic media are cooperating. But I don’t think that means much. In my opinion, a president who can’t talk about his record because it is so terrible, can’t be re-elected.
