White House staffers have adopted a new and unflattering nickname for their boss: “Obam-me,” Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan says she heard in chats with a few senators.
And how did the staffers come up with that name?
“Because it’s all about him and his big thoughts,” Noonan writes in a column. “I guess the second-term team is not quite as adoring as the first.”
Noonan, a former speechwriter for Ronald Reagan, joins a wide swath of Republicans who have complained about the president’s apparent self-absorption.
