At Hit & Run, Matt Welch points out a classic piece of so-bad-it’s-actually-quite-weird journalism, from that mustachioed hippopotamus of globo-lib twaddle, Thomas L Friedman:
How is it that a president who has taken on so many big issues, with very specific policies — and has even been awarded a Nobel Prize for all the hopes he has kindled — still has so many people asking what he really believes?
I don’t think that President Obama has a communications problem, per se. He has given many speeches and interviews broadly explaining his policies and justifying their necessity. Rather, he has a “narrative” problem. [...]
What is that narrative? Quite simply it is nation-building at home. It is nation-building in America. [...]
Wow. “Nation-building at home”? When do we send in the troops?
