December 16, 2016 Eight years after he was the man try­ing to grant Barack Obama’s plea to keep his Black­Berry, Richard “Dick­ie” George is watch­ing with more than cas­u­al in­terest while an­oth­er pres­id­ent-elect fights to keep his smart­phone as a life­line out of the bubble that is the mod­ern pres­id­ency.

The Rocky Obama-Sanders Relationship

June 9, 2016 Don’t ex­pect a lot of warmth when Pres­id­ent Obama sits down Thursday at the White House with Sen. Bernie Sanders. This is not a re­union of polit­ic­al al­lies or per­son­al friends or fel­low sen­at­ors who bon­ded when they served to­geth­er. In­stead, the agenda will be all busi­ness as the pres­id­ent...

How Obama Will Give His Final State of the Union

January 9, 2016 As Pres­id­ent Obama pre­pares to de­liv­er his fi­nal State of the Uni­on ad­dress Tues­day, he can only hope for bet­ter treat­ment than the last two-term pres­id­ent re­ceived.

The White House Thinks Obama Had a Very Good Year. The Public Isn’t so Sure.

December 21, 2015 By al­most all tra­di­tion­al met­rics, the White House should be cel­eb­rat­ing his 2015 in­stead of of­fer­ing the sub­dued and meas­ured de­fense seen from Pres­id­ent Obama at his end-of-the-year press con­fer­ence. After all, the usu­al num­bers are good—un­em­ploy­ment rate down, job cre­ation up, in­fla­tion low, GDP up, gas prices de­clin­ing. Only...

The President Again Tries to Right the Ship

November 25, 2015 With the coun­try shaken by the blood­shed in Par­is, nervous about at­tacks at home, and con­cerned about an in­flux of refugees from the Middle East, many pres­id­ents would take to the air­waves for a prime-time ad­dress to re­as­sure an anxious na­tion. But that is not Pres­id­ent Obama’s pre­ferred way to...

Yes, President Obama Is Going to Watch the Debate

October 13, 2015 The White House wants you to know that Pres­id­ent Obama is not watch­ing every step taken by those who want his job. “He feels like he’s got bet­ter things to do,” ex­plained press sec­ret­ary Josh Earn­est when asked why the pres­id­ent didn’t watch the early GOP can­did­ate de­bates. While Earn­est...

Obama Vows Another Try on Gun Regulation

October 2, 2015 Amer­ic­ans saw an angry and frus­trated pres­id­ent Thursday even­ing, a pres­id­ent who has reached his break­ing point as yet more in­no­cent vic­tims of gun vi­ol­ence are coun­ted and yet more fu­ner­als are planned. For the 15th time in his ten­ure, Pres­id­ent Obama had to face the cam­er­as to some­how lead...

The Real Audience for Obama’s U.N. Speech Was Republicans

September 29, 2015 Pres­id­ent Obama rarely takes the op­por­tun­ity to talk back to the Re­pub­lic­an pres­id­en­tial can­did­ates, es­pe­cially with top White House aides go­ing out of their way to claim he doesn’t watch their de­bates or heed their at­tacks. But on Monday, the pres­id­ent left little doubt that he has been pay­ing at­ten­tion...
