The Chicago Frame to explain Obama (try a Blagojevich Frame instead)
Here's Andrew Malcolm in the LA Times: President Obama Day 386: What's happened to him? building on Steve Clemons and the guy who kicked the Frame together first, Edward Luce: America: A fearsome foursome. frame that a Chicago crew is sinking Obama's administration.
Heck, Obama and the guys not running DC like Daley and the Machine have run Chicago. They're running America like Blagojevich ran Illinois. A permanent campaign because that's all they know to do. They don't have a clue how to govern, nor to the like governing much anyways. Only campaign stunts like Rod and Rahm's drug deal for seniors, or Blagojevich's All Kids program. Phoney programs that helped few. Using the impaired as human shields at press conferences.
It's a style that crushed Illinois and will do a heck of a lot of damage to America under attack by radical Islamists, and a country mired in unemployment.
We've got three more hard years ahead of us with this team.
