No More Mr. Nice Guy

Some say, regarding FOX News, “Obama is going the way of Nixon…paranoia.”

Probably not any more than most White House temporary occupants. Lanny Davis, in discussing FOX on the “enemy list,” said (on FOX) that the Clinton White House had a “siege mentality, like all White Houses.”

I suspect that is true. President Obama has led a privileged life. He seldom (if ever) suffered defeat, and his boyish looks and manners have carried him far. He is not accustomed to criticism, and with Axelrod and Rahm (not exactly the two of the most engaging people on the planet) support, he is striking out.

His problem, at least in this area is that striking out runs counter to his well-cultivated “nice guy” image.

A siege mentality is not a pleasant thing to witness…
