Obama Is Playing a New Game

DECLARATIONS, by Peggy Noonan

Obama Is Playing a New Game

…”How’s the president’s game going?  What’s new is that almost everyone does seem to understand he’s playing games.  He used to get more credit.  His threats of coming mayhem and his lack of interest in easing it have dimmed his luster. 

Certainly in the past few weeks he’s become more aggressive and gameful.  A crisis is coming–a series of crises actually, with more ceilings and the threat of a government shutdown–and he is not engaging or taking ownership.”…

Gameful is a new use of the noun “game.”  By adding “ful” to “game” the word becomes an adjective and describes a characteristic of President Obama.
