Why coverage of Obama is so boring.

Republicans are evil, Obama is weak--what a dull narrative that is, and how unsatisfying except as an object of mockery.
If only those who sympathize with Obama were willing to acknowledge his flaws--his intellectual superficiality, moral hubris, susceptibility to flattery and political immaturity among them--they might be able to develop a narrative of his presidency that would be interesting and enlightening. Obama might make a compelling tragic hero if today's journalists had any storytelling ability. Best of the Web Today: Losing the Plot - WSJ.com

Your Say

The reason is Obama is boring. He reminds me of the "Peony Lady" speech in a Carol Burnett episode where Tim Conway kept going to sleep and falling face first onto his plate.

Imagine how incompetent they would appear without journalism degrees.
