Obama, the Oligarch of Outrage

The shear number of sources for outrage isn this administration almost precludes the success of any of the individual outrages because the opposition is portrayed “obstructing virtually everything” -- clearly this is a planned strategy. In short, if everything is outrageous, then nothing is outrageous.
Obama’s far more interested in discrediting the Republican Party than he is in surrounding himself with competence, and by keeping the level of controversy at a fever pitch he’s effectively casting the Republicans as a party of perpetual naysayers. As a bonus, it keeps the spotlight on the controversy du jour and off of the growing list of administration failures.
Alas, fully aided and abetted by the Entertainment Information Complex, it’s working extraordinarily well.  If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired, then President Obama has you just where he wants you.
