A couple of weeks back, I was in a second hand bookstore near the Old South Meeting House and bought a 2010 book by Richard Wolffe titled Revival: The Struggle for Survival Inside the Obama White House and have just finished reading it. Much of the book dealt with the passage of Obamacare. I feel the need to remind myself of the level of Obama worship in the liberal media and to put things into historical perspective. Consider this passage:
Obama had now served as president for fourteen months, which was still only two-thirds of the time he spent campaigning for the job. He was already a war president utterly unlike George W. Bush and a health care president utterly unlike Bill Clinton. He aspired to have the impact of a Reagan and avoid the fate of a Carter. He wound down a war like a Nixon but hoped to inspire like a Kennedy. There would be many cruel months ahead, but he had stumbled his way through the wasteland. This was the season of his revival.
