The Fierce Urgency of Whenever

“In his 60 Minutes interview, in answer to a question about whether he over-promised during the campaign, the president replied:

I didn’t overpromise. And I didn’t underestimate how tough this was gonna be. I always believed that this was a long-term project… That reversing a culture here in Washington, dominated by special interests… it was gonna take more than a year. It was gonna take more than two years. It was gonna take more than one term. Probably takes more than one president.

More than one president? During the campaign, Obama was fond of quoting Martin Luther King Jr.’s ‘the fierce urgency of now.’ But now we’re supposed to wait for the fierce urgency of two or three more presidents?” – Arianna Huffington writing on the disparity between Obama’s often lofty rhetoric and the reality of his actual record.
