    The past seven brutal days will go down as one of the worst weeks in history for a sitting president. It certainly has been, without any doubt, the worst week yet for President Obama.

    Somehow, Mr. Obama managed to embarrass himself abroad, humiliate himself here at home, see his credentials for being elected so severely undermined that it raises startling questions about whether he should have been elected in the first place — let alone be re-elected later this year.

    Consider:

    Last Friday, Mr. Obama wandered into the killing of Trayvon Martin. Aided by his ignorance of the situation, knee-jerk prejudices and tendency toward racial profiling, Mr. Obama played a heavy hand in elevating a tragic situation in which a teenager was killed into a full-blown hot race fight.

    Americans, he admonished, need to do some “soul-searching.” And then, utterly inexplicably, he veered off into this bizarre tangent about how he and the poor dead kid look so much alike they could be father and son. It was election-year race-pandering gone horribly wrong.

    • By the start of this week, Mr. Obama had fled town and was racing to the other side of the planet just as the Supreme Court was taking up the potentially-embarrassing matter of Obamacare. While in South Korea he was caught on a hidden mic negotiating with the president of our longest-standing rival on how to sell America and her allies down the river once he gets past the next election.

    • Meanwhile, back at home, the Supreme Court took up the single most important achievement of Mr. Obama’s presidency and, boy, was it embarrassing. The great constitutional law professor, it turns out, may not quite be the wizard he told us he was.

    By most accounts, Mr. Obama and his stuttering lawyers were all but laughed out of the courthouse. They were even stumbling over softball questions lobbed by Mr. Obama’s own hand-picked justices.

    • Mr. Obama closed his week pulling off a nearly unimaginable feat: He managed to totally and completely unify the nastily-fighting Democrats and Republicans in Congress. Late Wednesday night, they unanimously voted — 414 to zip — to reject the budget Mr. Obama had presented, leaving him not even a thin lily’s blade to hide behind.

    Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. The Walls around the Media's Jericho beginning to crumble? Perhaps.
    Be careful of this happening:

    » Signs of desperation - Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

    When New Jersey Democratic Senatorial Candidate Torricelli was sentenced for mob racketeering related activities, the New Jersey Dems switched him out for Jon Corzine, even though it was way past the deadline for that type of maneuver, and you all know how reliable and trustworthy Mr Corzine was, Joe Biden's "Go To Guy For Advice On The Banking Crisis", Joe Biden's "Smartest Guy In The Room Financially", last seen merrily, and illegally, dipping into off limits customer cash accounts in his brokerage firm trying to Kite enough checks to keep his firm afloat.
    Keep in mind the Hillary Classic, from San Francisco, hobnobbing with the "Ya Ya Sisterhood, Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi, Sanchez, during the summer of 2004 replying to a question of what her fiscal program would be like were she running for President: "We're going to take what you have away from you and put it where it will do some good!" Spoken like a true Leftist. Does Hillary tour with a group that continually hums bars from the "Marseilles" in the background?

    And now that the House has passed Ryan's budget? Dingy harry Reid has vowed not to take it up...it too will lanhguish collecting dust like so many other solutions on his desk fronted by the House.

    Next up? Obama's demand for debt ceiling raise...where will that go?

    Huge mess. Create problems so you can ride in on a Gubmint issued white stallion in presumption to fix it...and create more havoc until you ultimately get your control over the masses.

    Constitution be damned.
