60 Minutes A Tad Uncomfortable With BHO?

I didn't see all of the show tonight. But I did catch a few minutes of it and noticed that Steve Kroft, a leftist, was looking with some disbelief at BHO during a few portions of the show.

Gateway Pundit has additional info in a post entitled "Ouch!... 60 Minutes Reporter Asks Giggly Obama: "Are You Punch-Drunk?"

Recently, I've noticed some change in tone in various articles and editorials in the Washington Post. If I read between the lines correctly, some hackles are up, perhaps a general feeling that BHO might not be the man for the job or perhaps a sense that BHO's mantra of "hope and change" has turned out to be a scam.

For example, in one lead editorial the Washington Post went so far as to mention disappointment in BHO, specifically, in reference to his signing the stop-gap bill in spite of all the earmarks. I posted on that editorial about ten days ago, over at THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS. Excerpt from that WaPo lead editorial of March 13, 2009:
LIKE A DIETER who allows himself just one more slice of cake before starting to count calories, President Obama signed the $410 billion omnibus spending bill, then pledged to get tough on congressional earmark spending -- next time. "This piece of legislation must mark an end to the old way of doing business," Mr. Obama announced. As with the dieter, skepticism is appropriate. The old way was supposed to have ended already.


...[E]armarks are symbols of broader indiscipline, and they also are conducive to corruption. So it was disappointing that Mr. Obama shied away from a tougher stance even as he congratulated himself for doing more.
So far, however, I don't see that BHO has a clue that being President doesn't make him all powerful or above criticism. Those with Narcissistic Personality Disorder never do; see this essay by Ali Sina. In fact, BHO is moving as quickly as possible via demagoguery and fiat (aka executive order).

Is there enough anger out there to rein him in? In my view, not yet. The question is this: Will there be enough anger in time to rein him in from doing permanent damage to America?

Proof positive that BHO is incompetent:

Obama sent a letter to Chirac, saying he looks forward to working with him the next four years.
