Right-Wing Media Pushes Ridiculous Anonymous Rumor Paint President As Inept Commander-In-Chief decided to propagate some poorly-written propaganda that they admit is questionable.
I don’t stand by what follows because I don’t know the author or the website. It also falls into the “too good to check” category.

But read and decide for yourself which has a greater ring of truth: the cool, analytical Obama of the developing White House hagiography (or to quote the notorious catchfart Howard Fineman, “President Barack Obama just proved himself — vividly, in almost Biblical terms — to be an effective commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States”)? or this story describing the indecisive, goofy wuss whom we’ve come to know over the previous painful 29 months?
The article refers to is a super-anonymous blog post from SocyBerty, where author Ulsterman engages in a Q&A with a "Washington D.C. Insider."

Media Matters summed it up best:
We are supposed to believe this "insider" is privy to the intricate details -- right down to a play-by-play of conversations between the Director of the CIA, the Secretary of State, and the Secretary of Defense  -- of some of the most important and closely guarded national security meetings in recent history, and chose to share this unvarnished information with an anonymous blogger who writes for a user-submitted content farm?
