Obama's Playbook For Handling Unexpected Problems

Obama does seem remarkably consistent in how he handles these situations. Unfortunately, the steps really are not the optimal policy.


"Politico's Carol E. Lee has an interesting story today on President Obama's "by-now familiar pattern...for dealing with unexpected problems." As best we can figure, the Obama damage control strategy consists of these 5 easy steps:

Step 1: Deny seriousness of issue.
Step 2: Deny any admin responibility/failure.
Step 3: Have spokespeople convey O’s feelings to public.
Step 4: Blame Bush admin.
Step 5: Concede the issue days later.

... Maybe it's when the president goes bowling that you're supposed to find immediate shelter and duck tape the windows.
