Fuzzy Wuzzee?

Conservatives and Republicans have been saying for a year that Obama is an empty shirt. So he can give a nice speech, big deal. What has he actually said? What does he actually stand for? What specific legislation will he pursue?

No one knows, perhaps not even Obama.


Obama’s fuzziness may certainly be at least partly strategic—an attempt to be, if not all things to all people, then at least as many things to as many people as possible. This trait is hardly unusual in politicians. But Obama takes it to an extreme degree, and over time it is starting to hurt him. It is such a consistent characterisitc of his, across so many areas, that one can conclude (as I have) that it is part of his personality on a very deep level, and not just a political ploy.

Slightly different topic, but this is great. The surveyors showed a group of 440 people this pro-Obama video by the "Obama Girl." Watch how the negatives get bigger as the video goes on. The sharpest drops are among women when the Obama Girl shows the most skin: when she's on the bed and on the couch.
