From a comment on a piece in the Sydney Morning Herald. One of those instances where I say, "I wish I had said that". This is soooo how it looks from the outside (my bold).. "One of Bambi Obama's great mistakes was his failure to take control of the national narrative upon winning the election, thereby allowing the lunatics of the Right to narrate instead. Bambi just doesnt seem to be able to get real politik, that the big issue and long term efforts are needful but you need to also do for those on the ground. If he hadnt been so busy being self enamoured and pouring his vision into two autobiographies (by age 45) he may have been able to actually see his own country. This simply wasnt his time, he should have let the Clintons deal with the Right in the way they know how. But Bambi's ego got the better of him. Obama is nothing but a peacock and because of him, of his vanity and grandiosity, America is being hijacked by the far Right."
