The White House is now at war with the Edmunds.com car site, disputing its critique of Cash for Clunkers. Business Insider writes:
Seriously, what’s the point of this? Clunkers is over. It just makes The White House look thin-skinned, though it’s great publicity for Edmunds.
I’ve got news for Business Insider: it doesn’t just make the White House look thin-skinned. The White House is thin-skinned.
This White House is arrogant. But arrogance is not the same as quiet confidence. Those who are arrogant and narcissistic may appear confident, but an over-sensitivity to criticism is often evidence of deep insecurity.
And unfortunately, this administration has a lot to be insecure about.
