Now they get around to asking the questions

One of the Washington Post's most reliably liberal columnists, Richard Cohen, finally gets around to asking the questions he and his biased colleagues in the mainstream media should have been asking as far back as 2007, when Dear Leader first announced his exploratory committee for President after "serving" in the Senate for a minuscule 143 legislative days.

"This, of course, is the Obama enigma: Who is this guy? What are his core beliefs?

Gee thanks, Richard.  How timely of you and your fellow learned scribes to finally getting around to discussing the philosophical positions of the empty suit you so passionately championed as the savior of America.

Mark Steyn has an answer for the clueless columnist:

"To return to Cohen's question: "Who is this guy? What are his core beliefs?" Well, he's a guy who was wafted ever upward – from the Harvard Law Review to state legislator to United States senator – without ever lingering long enough to accomplish anything. "Who is this guy?" Well, when a guy becomes a credible presidential candidate by his mid-40s with no accomplishments other than a couple of memoirs, he evidently has an extraordinary talent for self-promotion, if nothing else. "What are his core beliefs?" It would seem likely that his core belief is in himself. It's the "nothing else" that the likes of Cohen are belatedly noticing."

Spot on, Mark.  It's absolutely incredible that wretches like Cohen are only now coming to terms with the incompetence and narcissism they deliberately helped set loose on our country.
