You may remember the scene from “Take the Money and Run” (if you’re as old as I am). Over and over, as he was growing up, bullies would pull Woody’s glasses from his face, throw them on the ground and smash them. Now, as an adult, he is cornered by the police after a failed heist. In a panic, he pulls his glasses off, throws them on the ground and smashes them. “See,” he says, “I did it myself.”
Fast forward to Obama post-Massachusetts, offering to shrink the beast all on his own.
Time to switch role models.
