Normally I'm a bit more charitable towards President Obama and others around here. Leadership of a slowly unwinding republic is surely no easy task. However, President Obama gave us ample evidence today why his voice will no last longer than a few generations. Here, President Obama replies to Major Garrett's question with a less than presidential tone. See the video of the presser here: http://thebea.st/1LaepDl Personally, the plight of four prisoners in Iran is a legitimate issue to bring and, after the initial petulance, President Obama makes a reasonable point about placing hostages on the table amid negotiations. The challenge is that you just can't get past his initial retort. It is unpresidential and it is unworthy of a leader who should be able to rise above such a tone. Maybe my point is this: this is a salient example of how President Obama just can't get beyond common rhetoric in his time in office. If he had ever wished to have a last generational voice, his tone has disqualified him from that group of leaders. What say ye?
