Racist, Bitter Clinging Teabagging Bigot Criticizes Obama's Leadership Skills

WOW. Since when did Ezra Klein become a teabagger?

But the White House has stayed quiet -- and confusing. Publicly, Kathleen Sebelius said the White House would do whatever Harry Reid wanted. Privately, there's been no support for this public option push, and the idea didn't even make a token appearance in their white paper. They wish this wasn't happening, but they're not willing to put a stop to it. Instead, they hoping someone else -- maybe Jay Rockefeller -- stands up and calls the play.

This is, however, the worst of all worlds. In refusing to disappoint the left early, they're assuring the sense of betrayal will be much more acute because the feeling of momentum will have far longer to build. And in refusing to embrace this strategy cleanly, they're making it harder to lay the groundwork for an effective communications strategy around a bill that's tougher on insurers. The problem isn't just that the White House is following, but that they're making it harder to eventually lead.

Look, I have no doubt that Klein is expressing his frustration over Obamacare's future still in a kabuki dance-like state, with confusion over its future increasing by hour. And I have no doubt the Democrats will try something to push it through (hell, Klein himself has been urging the "Any Means Necessary" theme). But watching one of the bright, young, smug Journolist members who was supposed to be the vanguard for Hope and Change lose faith in the Messiah, even if only a bit, is humorous.

Hey Ezra, now you are learning what those of us who did not vote for Obama knew a long time ago: that he is a shitty leader and incapable of taking charge. But I am glad to drink your bitter tears of disappointment and frustration. Keep trying pal, that chicken is always ready.
