Sunday's Quote: As hope and pomposity fade. . .

c/o WaPo Writers Group
No matter who gets the Republican nomination to face Obama next year – and irrespective of whatever momentum the Right may (or may not) have – the ineptitude on both sides of the congressional aisle becomes only more evident with each passing day, which will undoubtedly set the tone for an election season that will be as parochial as it is repelling already. Yet regardless of whatever criticisms one may harbor for each of the GOP candidates, the following assessment cannot be said for anyone but the man who currently occupies The White House:


"Barack Obama is no Harry Truman. It's not that complicated. Obama is over his head. He is a great orator. He came out of nowhere. He dazzled America. He [has] never run anything. He never actually enacted anything even in the legislature. He hadn't run a state. He hadn't run a city. He hadn't run a business. He is running the biggest enterprise in the world and he has not succeeded. And that is why all of these independents, all of those who believed in a soaring rhetoric, including probably a couple who swooned in the aisles as he spoke in 2008, are now waking up and realizing he is a mortal who is in over his head."
– Syndicated columnist Charles "Martel" Krauthammer, debating fellow columnist (and noted Obama apologist) Colbert King during the September 9, 2011 episode of Inside Washington
