The media in panic that Obama is the 'nowhere man sitting in his nowhere land'

Silvio Canto, Jr.
There are lots of media people humming The Beatles' "Nowhere Man" these days, especially the line "Nowhere man please listen you don't know what you are missing, Nowhere Man the world is at your command."

There is a lot of panic because the investment is in serious danger, or a devaluation is likely as they say in currency markets.  The latest RCP poll average is approval 44% and disapproval at 52%.  

We remind you that most of these polls were taken before Americans started getting insurance cancellations and President Obama's "you can keep your policy" line came under scrutiny.

The media is concerned that President Obama looks detached, aloof and any other word synonymous to disconnected.  They don't understand how the smartest man to ever take the oath knows so little of what is going on around him.   ("He's as blind as he can be, Just sees what he wants to see, Nowhere Man can you see me at all?")

According to news reports:

"A string of embarrassing episodes for the Obama administration that the president didn't seem to know about until the public did is raising questions about why he wasn't in the loop and who should have told him.  

Knowledge that the IRS was excessively targeting Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations during the 2012 election cycle arguably would not reach the president's desk before the news media learned this spring. 

But reports over the past week weeks that President Obama was not aware of the National Security Agency monitoring German Chancellor Angela Merkel's cell phone nor of the technical problems that plagued the ObamaCare website ahead of its Oct. 1 launch suggests he is taking too much of hands-off approach or perhaps not surrounding himself with people who can keep him informed, critics say.

Also this week, NBC reported first that the administration in 2010 that ObamaCare was written in such a way that the president's promise about Americans being able to keep their health insurance plans could not be kept."

Maybe John Lennon's "Nowhere Man" has finally been found. He is Barack Obama, or the man "making his nowhere plans for nobody".
