Standoffish Standoff

Maureen Dowd is not happy that President Obama isn’t a glad-hander.

President Standoffish doesn’t want to be seen as a stiff.

“Most people who know me know I’m a pretty friendly guy,” he protested at his White House press conference on Monday. “And I like a good party.”

Maybe. But the president always seems to be dancing alone. And that was the vibe of his swan-song press conference for Act One of his presidency.

Yeah, a man who was welcomed to Washington by a bunch of stuck-up Very Serious People who looked at him with the same love as they would for a wet dog at a wedding and a large group of ravening not-so-subtle racists who questioned everything from his citizenship to the size of his wife’s arms; how can he be so disinclined to suck up to them?

  1. I realize Obama doesn’t have a whole hell of a lot of choice in the matter, but if it were me, I’d ignore the whole friggin lot of them, at press conferences, speeches, Christmas, just ignore them till they went away.
