They Need A Hero

NYT and Maureen Dowd channel Bonnie Tyler:
... in his lame way, Romney got at Obama’s problem: The Moviegoer prefers to float above, at a reserve, in grandiose mists. 

 As Maraniss recounts, Obama said he liked reading Hemingway because of Papa’s “integrity of grasping for those times, those visions, that are ones of true magnificence and profundity.” 

 Cook told Maraniss that she thought Obama’s desire to “play out a superhero life” was “a very strong archetype in his personality.” 
I don't know when I've laughed so hard - I just thought I'd share the joy.

Comments:
We don't need another hero.
 
Of course he's a hero!

At night when all the world's asleep. The questions run too deep for such a simple man.

Won't you please, please tell him that jobs turned? I know it sounds absurd but please tell him of a plan. Of a plan! Of a plan! Of a plan!
 
John - well, there are multiple perspectives here. I agree, I do not want a hero. I want a president.

The Kool Kidz at NYT seem to be all singing Love Hurts, and as for you, Mark, I think from the Obama campaign perspective they are working on Dream Weaver, but they need a little more than free $12 prescriptions for which we get charged $18 by the insurance co.

It seems as if politics in the "official" culture has veered into the absurd, and can't or won't find its way out.
 
Dream weaver? Oh my. Nice.
