“The truth is that we’ve got a bunch of smart people, I think, who know ten times more than we do about the specifics of the topics. And so if what you’re trying to do is micromanage and solve everything then you end up being a dilletante …”

— Presidential Candidate Barack Obama’s “hot mike” comments to British Conservative Party Leader David Cameron during their July 2008 meeting at Westminster

There has been ample coverage of Obama’s criticism of the police officer who recently arrested the president’s friend for his disorderly conduct.

My question for anyone from the mainstream media who is covering this story:

Should we be surprised this president’s been doing a lot of talking about things which he knows very little?

Id est: Economics or healthcare, anyone?
