Monday Morning Water Cooler – Where's "Joe Cool" Obama?


You know who I’m talkin’ about. Barack Obama. Fist Bump. Shades. Shirtless. The epitome of “cool.”

Europeans thought he was cool. Liberal bloggers thought he was cool. The mainstream media thought he was cool. Hollywood thought he was super cool.

Yet since taking office, a new Obama seems to have emerged: irritable, arrogant, condescending, prickly. That was the Obama we saw at last week’s Health Care Summit — “I don’t count my time because I’m the President;” “We’re not campaigning any more. The election’s over,” etc.


Alas, how the mighty have fallen. So what happened? Did Barack Obama really “lose his cool”? Or was his “cool” simply one of the best examples of projection by an obsessed fan base that this blogger has ever witnessed?
