Maureen Dowd: Obama is a slow learner, not an adult

In her New York Times column this weekend, liberal Maureen Dowd praises Obama's ability "to emotionally connect with Americans in searing moments," such as after the Boston Bombing.  She then provides some frank statements on Obama's lack of political skills:
Unfortunately, he still has not learned how to govern

How is it that the president won the argument on gun safety with the public and lost the vote in the Senate? It’s because he doesn’t know how to work the system. And it’s clear now that he doesn’t want to learn, or to even hire some clever people who can tell him how to do it or do it for him.  ....

President Obama thinks he can use emotion to bring pressure on Congress. But that’s not how adults with power respond to things. [Emph. added]
It would be nice if Democrats had discovered this back when there was still time to prevent America from having to suffer through two terms of an incompetent president.
