Youa Culpa

We need another category, Maybe I was Wrong about Obama.
We could just call it "Althouse/Noonan" because they're the prime practitioners of the art.
The latest from Peggy Noonan (via the puppy blender, but I have a point!)

Ms. Drew reports that while the president was in Asia last week, "a critical mass of influential people who once held big hopes for his presidency began to wonder whether they had misjudged the man." They once held "an unromantically high opinion of Obama," and were key to his rise, but now they are concluding that the president isn't "the person of integrity and even classiness they had thought."

It goes on to talk about how the people who matter are starting to figure out what we unhelpful types knew two years ago, Obama is a thin-skinned, neophyte, marxist, far-left, Chicago-machine politician who has no idea what the hell he's doing.
As Instapundit once said, he thought Obama was just running to run for whatever reason, not to win, and suddenly he was winning. He had no idea what the hell to do.

Too bad nobody who counted thought that before. Oh well, they're better than we are, they've put in the time, so we should just do what they tell us and hopefully they'll do better the next time.

Or not.
