Dorsey is a really horrible “political reporter”. If he knew anything about politics or the presidency, he’d realize that the president’s change in demeanor was calculated to reflect the seriousness of his office. Seeing a president constantly speaking like a candidate would be inappropriate and laughable, and he knew this, so he changed it up. Dorsey also takes this to mean that it’s been a rough “five years”? Of course the presidency would wear anyone out. He still got the law past, and the thing about website troubles is that they’re fixable. Hacks like Dorsey just love this story because it makes what they have to say seem almost relevant. God forbid Buzzfeed ever do any actual policy research. It’s the only “publication” low enough to accommodate Ben Smith and Andrew Kaczynski, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
