Centrist analyst boos Obama press conference 

Scorcho! The Atlantic’s Clive Crook is an alumnus of The Economist and temparmentally inclined to political centrism. So it’s a bit of a surprise to see his considerably less than admiring assessment of Barack Obama’s press conference today. “Obama is the co-author of the current breakdown in Washington,” he concludes. “Obama is right that Congress needs to behave more responsibly and starting doing its job. But so does he.” This is pretty searing criticism from a writer who, as he notes, tends to support Obama’s policies.
