Believe It Or Not Obama "Has to Stay Cool"

Zandar at No More Mister Nice Blog explains why Obama can't get ragetastic*:

Many of us, myself included, would like to see Obama speak with the same fiery passion about the BP oil disaster, about immigration reform, about climate legislation, about a lot of things. But I understand exactly why he remains calm and logical about things. "Why isn't he more animated, more angry?" people ask.

The reason is that after 43 POTUS, the rules are a little different for number 44. Pretending otherwise is just a silly exercise. And when America finally gets a female President, the rules will be a little different for her as well.

So no, Obama's not going to pick up a Louisville Slugger and go to town on Tony Hayward's forehead with it. It's because there's a very, very good chance that the anger Obama displays will backfire terribly.

Aimai's still correct. Somebody in the administration needs to be the bad cop here if Obama can't. But it can't be Obama that does the anger.

He has to stay cool.
