Presidential Magic

Tonight on a FOX News show, Maura Liasson of NPR, made an interesting comment discussion President Obama’s foreign policy. In reference to Iran’s somewhat belligerent tone of late, Ms. Liasson spoke of the “Obama Magic” and how it might not work on Iran.

Ms. Liasson deserves praise for being a member of the news media who actually recognizes “Obama Magic” and more importantly, that “Obama Magic”  is not all powerful.  This public recognition of the possible fallibility of President Obama places Ms. Liasson in a elite group within the news media. Mostly, because the “Obama Magic” has had the most influence on the news media. At some point, it will become widely recognized among members of the news media that magic is make believe.
