Via Sooper Mexican, you can tell the left’s feeling good today by the fact that there are liberal publications trumpeting this too. I kind of like it just because it’s true to the real spirit of the moment. For all the forced chumminess between the two sides, that eyeroll is a perfect summation of the Lightbringer’s approach to the GOP since, oh, at least last January. While he was up there today intoning about the glory of America and how the only way to stay true to the Founders’ vision is to subvert it while paying lip service to it, Mona Charen was keeping her eye on the ball:
We interrupt this orgy of Obama worship to recall that his campaign huddled early in 2012 and reflected that they could not run on his first-term record. Accordingly, the strategy was “Kill Romney.” Congratulations. That what we’re celebrating today.
They killed him and now the new task is to kill the GOP by implying that they want to starve children or, at least, let them be murdered occasionally in the name of protecting gun rights. Why clink glasses under those circumstances? If I found myself seated next to Harry Reid or Pelosi and forced to make small talk, I’d turn into Jim Carrey at the hotel bar in “Dumb and Dumber” within five minutes. FLOTUS’s reaction is the first and probably last honest moment you’ll see from either side all day. It beats listening to a phony lecture about “name-calling” from President Above The Fray, no?
