A message for Kreepy Kevin and the PUMA-obsessed blogstalkers below the fold:
Donna Brazile’s BFF may be a despicable human being, but he’s one of the people who tells the media what to think and say. In today’s WSJ Karl Rove gives us a preview of what is likely to be the media narrative for the next few weeks:
Team Obama demonstrated remarkable discipline during the presidential campaign. From raising an unprecedented amount of money to milking every advantage from the Internet to grabbing lots of delegates from inexpensive caucus states, they left nothing to chance.
And now the administration has scored a major legislative victory in an extraordinarily short period of time. Less than 700 hours after taking the oath of office, President Barack Obama signed the largest spending bill in American history.
Nevertheless, this fast start can’t overcome a growing sense the administration is winging it on issues large and small.
Team Obama has been living off its campaign reputation for planning and execution. That reputation is now frayed, and all the bumbling and unforced errors will have an impact. Such things don’t go unnoticed on Capitol Hill or in foreign capitals.
The president, a bright and skilled politician, has plenty of time to recover. The danger is that what we have seen is not an aberration, but the early indications of his governing style. Barack Obama won the job he craved, now he must demonstrate that he and his team are up to its requirements. The signs are worrisome. The world is a dangerous place. The days of winging it need to end.
Karl Rove gave Obama advice on how to defeat Hillary during the primary campaign. If you don’t think Obama listened to the GOP strategist then check out this specific advice from December 2007 on how to win in Iowa:
A definite Oscar contender.
