The smallness has flowed right into Term 2. In a petty press conference just last week, the president claimed Republicans are holding the economy “ransom,” that they plan on “crashing the American economy.” He called them “absolutists” and charged they are “consumed with partisan brinkmanship.” With the vicious gun debate raging, he said Republicans are holding “a gun at the head of the American people.”
And it won’t get better. This is what is in store for the next four years. Mr. Obama has been unmasked as a petty, partisan, small-minded political hack. Sadly, he has besmallified the presidency, and that, in a word, is simply not cromulent.
