While the MSM frets about Obama's agenda and the fact that his approval rating might have slipped a few points, they are, as usual, missing the bigger picture. The real story of Obama's first two months is the total destruction of the opposition. It's hard to remember an administration that, with the help of the newly emboldened progressive media, has so effectively defanged its major opponents in such a short period of time.
Let's consider, briefly, what has been achieved.
The head of the RNC is now a laughingstock, hated by his own party.
If a campaign finance scandal doesn't take him down, his next TV interview will. In the meantime, the RNC has to deal with a chairman that is not only an embarrassment, but who will in all likelihood severely limit their fundraising ability in coming cycles.
The actual head of the party is now a morbidly obese, race-baiting radio personality. After some clever media spin by Emmanuel and co, team Obama has ensured that very time he speaks out from now on, pundits will remark that he is the true leader of the Republicans.
The party's brightest prospect for 2012 has been transformed from an exciting, inspirational figure into a walking punchline.
Republican insiders who had clearly been eager to back him in 2012 will now have to go back to the drawing board, or settle for either Palin or Romney.
The next Fox News in the making has been disgraced, and their two biggest Obama-critics throughly discredited. Whether or not people continue to watch CNBC, it's highly doubtful that any criticisms coming from Santelli or Cramer will pack much of a punch at all.
