Barack: the God who bleeds; the novice who needs training

The left are calling for Barack to pull out stops in attempting to garner Congressional votes for Obamacare: to cajole, manipulate, and horse trade; to study what LBJ did, and to operate as LBJ did. Jonah Goldberg:

As Polman rightly notes, this is crazy talk for the simple reason that Obama has nothing like LBJ’s experience, skill set, or treasure trove of chits and political IOUs. Obama can no more decide to become LBJ than Carrot Top can decide to become Laurence Olivier.

Now, just as critics predicted, Obama needs on-the-job training to become a president, because he’s a god no more.
