Reacting to the choices of Sperling and Daley, this comment is one of the all-time greatest here at Balloon Juice:
For 2011, I have resolved to believe my lying eyes. It makes trying to figure out the Obama presidency so much easier. Then there is that saying about first impressions: again when it comes to Obama’s picks go with the first impression.
These two picks tell me that if Obama loses in 2012, he has set himself up nicely to waltz right over to a Wall Street job when his gig in the West Wing is up.
Because a former Senator and President probably didn’t have enough of a resume to get in with Wall Street. But now that he has picked Daley and Sperling, he’s a fucking lock. Not to mention the well known transition from President to stock broker that everyone in politics covets.
This is why hippies are occasionally punched on some blogs. Because it is so easy. And you deserve it.
