"Most of you covered me," he told the media elite at the 2009 White House Correspondents' Association dinner. "All of you voted for me."But for how long? Until the Dems lose badly in the elections this year, I'd guess. Journalists don't want the GOP in power, so they'll try to sharpen him up, and if that fails they'll hammer him until the Congressional Dems see him as enough of a liability to cut him loose.
That's the attitude coming out of the Oval Office every day. Why does Obama do it? Because he can.
