Obama White House Faces Ironic Criticism

Posted: Updated:

Apparently, criticism of the Obama White House has reached the ironic comedy stage:

With the exception of core Obama Administration loyalists, most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters. This view is held by Fox News pundits, executives and anchors at the major old-media outlets, reporters who cover the White House, Democratic and Republican congressional leaders and governors, many Democratic business people and lawyers who raised big money for Obama in 2008, and even some members of the Administration just beyond the inner circle.

Right. In a related story, with the exception of mockingbird loyalists, other birds are privately criticizing mockingbirds, having reached the conclusions that the mockingbirds have wings, beaks, and feathers.

Naturally, this news was brought to you by Mark Halperin, who further reports that those who are especially inclined to dislike Obama especially dislike him, and also he hears that a lot of people are unemployed and pretty unhappy about it or something?
