Barack Obama, bewildered bystander – The Washington Post

“The one scandal where you could credit the president with genuine anger and obliviousness involves the recent breaches of White House Secret Service protection. The Washington Post described the first lady and president as ‘angry and upset,’ and no doubt they were. But the first Secret Service scandal — the hookers of Cartagena — evinced this from the president: ‘If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I’ll be angry.’ An innovation in ostentatious distancing: future conditional indignation.” – Dr. Charles Krauthammer
