Is Obama “in over his head?”
When a reporter writes such a phrase, I want to know more about them.
I looked it up. He’s not a journalist; he’s a libertarian. These days, you have to watch what you believe at CNN. One report demonstrated with evidence how they fabricate the news by coaching people, telling them what to say while coaching others to fire guns in the background, off camera to create the illusion of warfare.
Here, Matt Walsh, would create the illusion that President Obama is “in over his head.” The President has steadily demonstrated his capacity to serve as commander-in-chief and has applied his considerable intellect to manage a recalcitrant and hostile Congress throughout his presidency.
Libertarians like Ron Paul are often aligned with racists and seek to undermine government they don’t believe in.
“If Santorum finishes second, watch out

(CNN) -- Question: What do Mitt Romney, John McCain, Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan (twice!) have in common? Answer: Before winning the Republican Party's nomination to run for president, each of these men first finished in second place during a GOP primary season.
Though it is by no means a lock that the Republican silver medalist will emerge as the party's front-runner in 2016 (just ask Pat Buchanan and Nelson Rockefeller), a significant second-place finish, the likes of which we will certainly see this year (unlike, say, John Buchanan's showing in 2004), carries the weight of a planted flag: Here, even in defeat, lies the embodiment of an important if temporarily unsuccessful political strain, one that is ready to break back out around that candidate at the next available opportunity.
Rick Santorum had a good day Tuesday, but he needs great days from here on out, in less-geographically friendly states, to have any prayer at the GOP nomination. As CNN reported, "Because Alabama's 47 delegates and Mississippi's 37 delegates will be awarded proportionally, Romney appeared to maintain his delegate lead and may add to it after more moderate Hawaii's 17 delegates are distributed. A CNN delegate estimate early Wednesday showed Romney with a 489-234 lead over Santorum, giving him a 255-delegate margin."
Romney is a tall, attractive Massachusetts striver running almost solely on electability -- as opposed to policy vision or connection with voters -- at a time when the sitting president seems over his head and beatable. If that formulation feels familiar, it is. John Kerry rode it to a surprisingly easy Democratic nomination in 2004, before getting his hat handed to him by President George W. Bush.”
Matt Welch has an axe to grind and his “party” is unlikely to produce a viable candidate and it is unlikely his party will coalesce on anything.
