Stop whining

I'm much closer to Ross Douthat's view of the White House than, well, the White House's view of the White House.

What ever would we do without psychoanalysis from beltway blowhard hacks like Douthat?

It's pretty funny he's what passes for an "intellectual" on the right these days.

This White House (and Bush) are the first to deal with a true 24 hr news cycle combined with the explosion of easily accessible bloggers, etc. Neither has figured out how to communicate in this world yet.

Take the recent NY magazine article. I read the transcript and Obama was clear and articulate. A great read for anyone who takes the time. Over 6000 words in the transcript and the media picks up on three words. not shovel ready. and totally take it out of context. How should you react? Argue that they are taking out of context and keep the fire going? Or say nothing and let the storm build?

The same happened to healthcare, financial reform, etc. How do you respond to all the ridiculousness when still maintaining the dignity of the Presidency.
