Dear white house,
Did you see the press conference yesterday? You did? Good. Now you know what you didn’t do enough over the past two years and what you must do over the next two: *this*:
This president is easily the smartest guy in the room – especially when the room is filled with the shallowness that is the WH press corps – and he’s just about the only serious honest adult in town. So send him out there, for crying out loud. Schedule a press conference every two weeks and let him swing. The networks will continue to ignore his appearances somewhere in North Carolina, but they will ALL broadcast a press conference.
Let him talk to the majority of Americans who actually wants to be treated as adults. Let him show what so many of us know :This man is there to serve the people, to help them, to make their lives a little better every day, regardless the personal political cost. Let them see his big heart and amazing grasp of every issue.
Enough with the inside game, enough with letting the crazy from both sides – and a corrupted media – to set the narrative. How the hell someone who is already one of the most succesful presidents ever, can be framed as a “failure”? Who the hell are these people to call the first black president – who is facing hate like no one before him – ‘weak’? What did they ever do in their lives beside writing blogs, editorials and yelling “special comments” on TV for 7 figures salary?
Seriously, dear White House, did you see the last 10 minutes of the press conference? *This* is Barack Obama that no one can beat. Sharp, smart as a whip, angry-yet-in-control, even a little raw. Speaking unscripted straight to the people, and always makes much more sense than anyone else. Let Obama be Obama, so the sane and silent majority could finally see what we already know: He is the North Star out there.
