Obama and the Boogie Man

Remember that earlier post about how Obama is smarter than Rick Warren? Well, he is smarter than Rush Limbaugh too. The Obama administration has seized upon the ability of the bully pulpit to pick and choose their enemies. It seems they make a conscious effort to seek out the most extreme example of Conservatism, then focus on it. For instance, Rush Limbaugh proclaiming “I want Obama to fail.”. This makes Obama look calm, rational and focused on problems and sows discord among the GOP as they disavow or agree with what was being said. The conservative who is being focused upon loves the attention and the 24 hours news media gets something to discuss for a week. “Too Far or Not Far Enough?”. So props to them.
