Marginalize, Marginalize, Marginalize

After the epic failure of the stimulus package, a year-long obsession with health-care, and a precipitous drop in the polls, the Obama Administration has gone back to its strong suit, namely the use of Alinsky tactics.

Responding to claims he is a socialist, Obama said the following during a recent interview with CBS’ Harry Smith,

“I think that when you listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, it’s pretty apparent, and it’s troublesome.”

In a non-response response to Sarah Palin during an interview with ABC News Obama said last Thursday,

“I really have no response to that. The last I checked, Sarah Palin is not much of an expert on nuclear issues,”

This White House just can’t help falling back on their Alinsky training. Their mastery of Alinsky tactics is what got an inexperienced, first-term Senator with a radical past into the White House, and when Obama’s advisers sense the first sign of trouble they simply cannot help but fall back on what they know has worked for them in the past.

With Obama polling in the low 40’s the question for the Obama Administration now goes beyond the conspicuously unpresidential nature of such personal attacks to a question of efficacy. If the majority disagrees with you, and you marginalize your enemy,  haven’t you in effect marginalized yourself?
