“Man of the Year” Tries to Disappear

Time’s newly anointed “Man of the Year” spends a news-conference hour asking adversaries to take him out of equations, telling Tea Party members to overlook Obama animosity to make a fiscal cliff deal and NRA members “who are mothers and fathers” to join in avoiding future Newtown massacres.

Time says “We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America.” Yet effacing himself seems to be the President’s primary strategy.

Can it work? As Tea Party Republicans face abandoning Boehner’s Plan B and Joe Biden strives for common ground on curbing assault weapons, clearing the air of anti-Obama rhetoric won’t be easy.

The Speaker will have to climb down from his own petard, and the president of the gun death lobby will have to make members forget that only this summer he refused even to talk to the White House. “Why should I or the NRA” he huffed, “go sit down with a group of people that have spent a lifetime trying to destroy the Second Amendment in the United States?”

    Your link shows Rush actually uttered one truth (as he sometimes does in spite of himself) – “People only believe what they’re told, and if they’re told a bunch of crap repeatedly day in and day out, that’s what they’re going to end up believing, particularly low-information people.”

    We are at an interesting point in our society. Do the Tea Party and the NRA have enough members to be able and willing to block any efforts at meaningful change, or are they the tail that’s been wagging the dog thus far. This seems to be a make or break situation for their continued influence. Anyone who has seen Wayne LaPierre’s speech about the Obama administration coming for our guns will be absolutely stunned if he suddenly becomes rational on gun control.
