President Obama’s all-purpose explanation for the unpopularity of various of his policies never varies. He isn’t talking enough to make you understand and you aren’t smart enough to understand without his talking. Right?
Well, we can all agree we’re stupid. That’s how he can account for his election and reelection to the presidency.
Obama drew on his all-purpose explanation most recently in his year-end interview with Democrat State Radio with an extra added fillip to cable television and its viewers (video below). “What is the public missing about your strategy?” NPR host Steve Inskeep asked. “And I say that simply because, according to polls, you don’t have very much approval for it.”
Man, is this getting old.
