Mary Matalin calls President Obama a “political narcissistic sociopath” who “leveraged fear and ignorance.” Matalin, the rancorous GOP strategist you’ve seen on TV a gazillion times, is the woman who’s married to Democratic strategist James Carville, whom you’ve seen on TV a gazillion times.
“What happened?,” Matalin posits. “A political narcissistic sociopath leveraged fear and ignorance with a campaign marked by mendacity and malice rather than a mandate for resurgence and reform. Instead of using his high office to articulate a vision for our future, Obama used it as a vehicle for character assassination, replete with unrelenting and destructive distortion, derision, and division.”
“Unfortunately and unfortuitously, forces of nature bookended the general election: Our convention was compromised by one weather disaster and our momentum stalled by another. Two human hurricanes also radically altered the political atmosphere: Bill Clinton’s unique windbaggery constituted a campaign updraft, while Chris Christie’s deplorable and gratuitous gas-baggery infused the campaign with a toxic political pollution.
“We live to fight again.”
