Kathleen Parker: President Obama's enemies are not all on other side of the aisle
But the fact that Obama's surrogates can't stick to the script may be the best barometer of his perilous incumbency. In the political jungle, where people tend to be more Darwinian than divine, he is wounded and the pack is beginning to turn. Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, who could be a hockey mom if he wore lipstick, recently told ABC's Charlie Rose in so many words that Hillary Clinton would have been a better president.
Yes, that is blood you smell.
Romney was nearly destroyed by his own team because he was perceived as weak, a likely loser. Beware, Mr. President. The dogs of war have been let loose, and they're not all on the other side.
