Hertzberg constructs Obama’s speech

Having received my own info about Obama’s press conference (or “presser”, as media types like to say) solely from sites such as reason.com, where it was roundly trashed, as well as from -what I thought- an incisive commentary from Peggy Noonan, I was surprised (well, not really) by Hendrik Hertzberg at The New Yorker. As if to underscore my recent posting about constructivism, he appears to construct reality in an entirely different way when he concludes the American people (or that portion actually watching the “presser”, which I suspect is not too many) will “like” the President’s proposal. Polls indicate otherwise, but then they’re probably dismissed by the Obama cheering section at The New Yorker.
