President Obama is so cut-off from the rest of the world that even the people who SHOULD be his closest allies… have no idea what he is thinking or planning! On Tuesday’s episode of Morning Joe on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough and guest Chuck Todd were discussing Todd’s new book, The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House – when they began discussing just how isolated President Obama is from the rest of the world.
Joe Scarborough: “One of the things that we’ve all heard from so many people–and it wasn’t like six years in–it was like two months in from the most senior Democrats–senators, on the Hill–‘He never calls; he never talks to us…’
I actually had a senator–and it happens quite a few times where senators will call us saying, what are you hearing over at the White House? What are they thinking on this bill? I’ll go, are you kidding me?”
Chuck Todd: “I’ve had those conversations.”
In case you were wondering, this is the definition of “dysfunction.” This is the biggest reason that nothing was “being accomplished” in Washington over the last six years – Republicans had very little to do with the roadblocks in D.C.
The real issue has been that Obama is just one odd duck.
