In effect, Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” is saying he can’t figure Obama out. He’s pleading ignorance.
This fellow has been covering Obama for six years and still claims to not understand him? A quick review of the Kindle version of his new book shows that he’s bought into the “Obama is a liberal” line. However, Todd acknowledges Obama is “perhaps the most liberal president to take office since Franklin Roosevelt…” That’s saying something, but it’s not enough.
The claim about Obama being a “stranger” is just another excuse for the media not doing their jobs when he first ran for the presidency in 2008. It is Todd’s way of saying to the American people, “We didn’t anticipate what a disaster he would be for the country; we really didn’t understand him or his agenda.”
