The news this morning declares that Obama has issued his "angriest" words yet about the Gulf. And I think I speak for a number of you when I say: who cares? It strikes me as an odd trend in public life that we focus on emotions rather than actions, or competence. A judge must have "empathy." Wall Street executives must show "remorse." And now the President must be "angry."
And will it make the lousy jobs report any better if the President gets angry about that, too?
