Today I heard Chuck Todd on Huge Ego Hewitt's radio show discuss/promote his new book and the title alone clues you in to Todd's Villager Blindness: "The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House." The use of the word "Stranger" fits perfectly with the wingnut and Villager complaints about the President: that he's not an American citizen, that he comes from and likes an exotic background, he's a secret Muslim, he hates American values, he's a secret Communist, etc. ad nauseum.

I then decided to look a little more closely at a supposedly devastating critique of the President and his National Security Council and found that David Rothkopf, the author, is just as blind as Todd.  This was a telling comment:
Steve Hadley was quite successful, actually, as Bush's national security advisor, helping with the benefit of a largely new team elsewhere in the administration to enable Bush to change course in his last couple of years and finish much stronger than he had started.
Not as fucked up does NOT equal stronger and it never will.
