For some inexplicable reason, after this article was published, the Politico break room had to be re-stocked with Kleenex and Jergens:

No one will ever mistake Obama for warm and fuzzy. But when he tries even a bit, he can’t help being winning. His smile remains dazzling, even if he flashes it less often.

I liked this one too:

He has a healthy ego, but his longstanding ability to coolly assess his circumstances and then adapt to them means that he is still better positioned than most of his peers to work his way out of problems.

And if that doesn’t work, he gets Putin to bail him out.

    My only question is what bad news is about to be dropped that Politico found in necessary to stroke Dear Leader's…umm….ego?

    O/T…This is a real big whooper form the President:

    "Now, this debt ceiling — I just want to remind people in case you haven't been keeping up — raising the debt ceiling, which has been done over a hundred times, does not increase our debt; it does not somehow promote profligacy. All it does is it says you got to pay the bills that you've already racked up, Congress. It's a basic function of making sure that the full faith and credit of the United States is preserved."

    Now if only someone would point out to Dear Leader that raising the debt ceiling is more akin to asking your credit card company for an increase in your credit limit so you can pay your bills. Somehow I think more Americans would understand just what is at stake.

    I bet Senator John McCain bought the very first pair of those knee pads…

    To quote Colonel Ernesto Bella: “This community is indeed fortunate to have a shepherd like him”.

    He is using the get-out-of-jail-free card that all Presidents obtain when they are elected to the highest office in the land.
