Businessweek Obama Cover: Cocky Or Inscrutable?


• Forget about the words. It’s taking a shot at Obama for being smug.

• I don’t know if it’s a race thing, a Democrat thing or just a shallow media thing where the focus remains so firmly focused on personality politics. If it made perfect sense four years ago when the young senator was a relative unknown, its disappointing to see that Obama, himself, as much as his ideology or policy, remains the issue.

• Sort of a funny way to announce the economy has turned the corner.
