Right, Wing-Nut!: Barack Obama: Deficit Hawk? Or Pathetic Poseur?

Exellent post by the "Jersey Nut".

Right, Wing-Nut!: Barack Obama: Deficit Hawk? Or Pathetic Poseur?
Usually, poseurs were easily pinned out, and roundly mocked, for their insincerity and cluelessness. Expect Obama to experience the same, by, oh...Thursday morning, latest.

But we may not have to wait until Thursday. I think the President's "group or subculture" is already starting to pin him out. By none other than Paul Krugman.

The President Is Missing
What have they done with President Obama? What happened to the inspirational figure his supporters thought they elected? Who is this bland, timid guy who doesn’t seem to stand for anything in particular?
It's an accusation he goes on to make in a rather apologetic tone, but then......
What’s going on here? Despite the ferocious opposition he has faced since the day he took office, Mr. Obama is clearly still clinging to his vision of himself as a figure who can transcend America’s partisan differences. And his political strategists seem to believe that he can win re-election by positioning himself as being conciliatory and reasonable, by always being willing to compromise.

But if you ask me, I’d say that the nation wants — and more important, the nation needs — a president who believes in something, and is willing to take a stand. And that’s not what we’re seeing.
