The Presidency Loses Its Final Traces of Dignity

“Waging a desperate campaign to maintain the presidency, President Obama has completed his project of diminishing it to nothing.

The presidency, an ailing patient for much of Obama’s term, was finally disconnected from life support with the release by the Obama campaign last week of a video comparing a vote for the president with premarital sex by a virgin.

It was the latest and most stupefying of a series of disgraceful moments we’ve witnessed in recent days.

The president called his opponent a “bullshitter” during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine; He stood at the podium of a campaign rally, beside himself in a juvenile state of amusement as he mocked Gov. Mitt Romney for having “Romnesia” that he said could be cured under Obamacare; and he has avoided his own press corps while appearing on The Tonight Show, MTV, and The View, frivolous venues that a short while ago would have been considered beneath the president, or at least rare exceptions to the rule that a president does serious things.”
