Huffpost did a story this morning about the President thinking he might go "Bulworth" on us. David Axelrod - the Dick Morris of this administration commented - “It’s probably cathartic just to say it. But the reality is that while you want to be truthful, you want to be straightforward, you also want to be practical about whatever you’re saying." Hmm, Practical as opposed to Truthful. That is what I love about the Washington establishment, PT Barnum now spends full time in politics. Only an allegedly brilliant strategist like Axelrod would not see the irony in his remarks.
As a reminder - here is the IMDB synopsis of Bulworth the movie -
A suicidally disillusioned liberal politician puts a contract out on himself and takes the opportunity to be bluntly honest with his voters by affecting the rhythms and speech of hip-hop music and culture.
This President, in his first campaign, worked very hard to obscure his political views, in part because he knew that if the American people understood the depth of his passion about liberal policies - they would not have elected him. This all sounds like Bull but it is not worth much.
