Where's that darn bus when I need it?

With a hat tip to Weasel Zippers, Administration spokesman John Hardwood may have stepped in it while taking softballs from the schmuck at MSNBC. They are discussing Obama ignoring the far left, and specifically the radical homosexuals in his party. I can’t seem to get the MSNBC video to embed at Redstate, I think it has something to do posting rules and this being a family friendly site 🙂 so if you want to subject yourself to the whole thing you’ll have to follow the link to Weasel Zippers…

As for the poopie he stepped in, well consider this…

HARWOOD: As a practical matter Lester I don’t think it’s a serious problem. We’ve seen and certainly Bill Clinton learned that a Democratic President can get punished by the mainstream of the electorate for being too aggressive on social issues…

OK now, let me see. Clinton wanted to allow homosexuals to serve “openly” in the military. That didn’t go over really well with “the mainstream of the electorate”. Sooooo, that would place the groupies that Obama pandered to over the weekend, by definition, as outside the mainstream of the electorate. OK, I got that.

HARWOOD: … governing a closely divided country is complicated and difficult.

Huh? Closely divided country? Whaaa? What happened to “I won!“?

I’m interested to see if a clarification will be forthcoming. Although, he did say it on MSNBC, so it’s not likely many people heard it.
