Brooks has gone from being highly annoying to well nigh unendurable. See here. It makes it worse, not better that what he says is largely correct. What's disgusting is the preening reasonableness, the "see, though I am a Republican, I too can praise our young President with the best of them." Gag me with a spoon. Obama went beyond not being "gracious", as close to criticizing our young President as brave Sir David is willing to go. Obama created a farrago of obfuscation behind the smoke of which he could escape a mess of his own making by taking credit for policies created by men and women smarter and braver than he, people he did the most to hypocritically revile when it served his purposes to do so. He served up an example of duplicity impressive even to veteran DC watchers. Watching him pull it off was like watching some creature on the Nature channel, profoundly impressive and disgusting at the same time. Then to have Miss Brooks come by and tell us, well, our President took the right policies andthen congratulate him for it. It's enough to make one want to become a fish farmer on Anarctica.
