Skip to comments.Meacham: Obama 'In The Wrong Business, Doesn't Particularly Like People'
Posted on 11/22/2011 5:28:10 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
When it comes to the MSM, it's hard to get more mainstream than Jon Meacham. Former Newsweek editor. Current Random House editor. Picked for a Pulitzer Prize.
So when someone of Meacham's genteelly liberal ilk unloads on Barack Obama in such stark terms, it's newsworthy. On today's Morning Joe, Meacham flatly stated his belief that President Obama "doesn't particularly like people and politicians who don't like people are kind of in the wrong business."

Seems like maybe he hit a nerve somewhere in Mr. Ford.
Rats. Ship. Obama. Ping to Today show list.
Is he the one who was suspended recently for saying BO was “acting like a d***?”
I’ve been reading “Intellectuals” by Paul Johnson.
“Intellectuals” throughout history tend to be leftists, because their tendency to think that they should run everything runs hand in glove with leftist/communist thought.
Some commenalities of these “intellectuals” of history include
“love of humanity” as a concept, but despite/antipathy for individual humans,
sexual immorality and illegitimacy,
personal financial irresponsibility leading to borrowing without repayment,
and antipathy towards money lenders due to the previous.
That was Mark Halperin back in June.
That was Mark Halperin, but another good example of the phenomenon.
They are turning Obama into the underdog while prepping the battlefield for the drafting of the Hildebeast.
If he doesn’t run for reelection, Hillary will be elevated in the emotional psyche of the left. If he does run, the media will have the “overcome adversity” card to play.
How come ordinary Americans can see this and the Ivy League grads have no clue?
Its not that he doesn’t “like” people. He just feels so superior to them.
I think Mark Halperin and Jon Meacham are the same person. They used to go by the name Michael Kinsley. /s
Not sure I buy this: I think I could stand a politician who didn't like people but did like responsible government. Not that Obama does, of course.
I think he is better suited breaking big rocks into small ones on a chain gang.
BTW this person doesn't like him AT ALL!
FUBO GTFO! 425 Days until Noon Jan 20, 2013
If the Country can survive that long!
Politicians who don’t like people. I can think of a few: Robespierre, Lenin, Stalin, Mao tse Tung, Pol Pot ...... Obama seems to stand in a distinct tradition.
He is, essentially, saying the same thing that Chris Matthews said a few days ago in his rant.
Yes, of course...thank you for the correction. For some reason I always get those two mixed up.
it’s ok... because people don’t particularly like 0failure either
Your description also contains traits commonly found among those possessed of a narcissistic personality disorder. No surprise.
Mostly he loathes America.....
Good book, Not his best but his point is valid.
Try “The birth of the Modern”
