Noticeable Traits

Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard sums up "Obama's Quirks: What we've learned about our new president." It's interesting, if somewhat depressing, reading. Of the five traits Barnes noted, the most unattractive is "blame game."

To me, there is nothing more ungracious and less classy than the constant verbal bricks Obama tosses backwards towards President Bush. Such bad-mouthing and blaming smacks of a mean spirit, as well as an insecurity about his own abilities to rise to the task before him. The four years stretching before Obama must look very long indeed.

They certainly look that way to me.
