A reader writes:
You overlooked a notable attendee of Obama’s January 2009 conservative dinner:
“Obama Tuesday night trekked to the Chevy Chase, Md., home of conservative columnist George F. Will to talk politics and get to know some of his fiercest intellectual adversaries: Charles Krauthammer, William Kristol, Larry Kudlow, David Brooks, Rich Lowry, Peggy Noonan, Michael Barone, and Paul Gigot.”
This is the same Peggy Noonan who wrote today:
Obama misread his Republican opponents from day one. If he had been large-spirited and conciliatory he would have effectively undercut them, and kept them from uniting.
A woman who personally experienced Obama’s early outreach to the right now insists he did nothing of the kind. Romnesia? Or just another massive fucking lie?
