Andrew Sullivan observes:



I’m beginning to worry that the president has lost his political touch. He’s still under 50% on the re-elect question in most polls.


And the base is very restless. The domestic spending explosion and the immigrant temporary-worker program have hardly helped him cement his core supporters. However, if I were to come up with one single idea to enrage the base–after all the spending criticism–I’d come up with doubling spending on the one federal agency the right loathes the most. And sure enough, the president is now pouring more money into the NEA. Does he think National Public Radio listeners are going to rally to him over this? Has he lost his mind?
