The mainstream media found it warm, delightful, and humanizing when the president quoted his daughter, Malia, asking "Did you plug the hole yet, daddy?"
And while it's certainly possible that Obama hoped this cynical ploy would gain him some sympathy, we think it goes farther than that...and was actually Obama's attempt to cast everyone who questions his mishandling of the crisis as a naive and dewey-eyed child, who means well but can't understand grown-up complexities.
In other words, we should all shut up and let Big Daddy do all the thinking.
Meanwhile, we think Malia may have hit on something...and that citizens and the press should now start each day by asking the president what holes he has successfully plugged?
