I’ve heard of “man crushes” before but Evan Thomas has decided that Obama is “sort of God”. Here’s the video.
I know I’m a little late on this – this actually came out on D-Day weekend. But aside from the ridiculous fawning from Thomas (which I can’t bring myself to comment on lest my head explode), let me just say that, for those of us who believe in American exceptionalism, I don’t ever want a president to be “above the country”. I want our president to protect America’s interests and place those interests above all others. I want a president who believes that America has been a force for good in the world. I want a president that won’t patronize his own citizenry by giving speeches abroad apologizing for our past.
Hopefully, someday, Obama will eventually be a president like that.
