I, for one, want to see President Obama rise in the polls. Havent you noticed the fall-off in the internecine USMB battles since the precipitous drop in the Presidents fortunes? What happened to all of the posts about the death of the Republican party, the self assured posts about the shoe-in election of 2012, all the fabulous Obama-pic avatars, I want more strife, more tussles, more blood-pressure raising confrontations! I dont come here to make nice! Yes he is! No, hes not! Yes he will! No, he wont! Ah, the good old days So, he had one bad week OK, a really bad one. 1. Southers withdraws his name. 2. Supreme Court throws a monkey-wrench into the monetary advantage of labor unions/Democrats 3. Air America goes bankrupt 4. Senator Brown is elected, which may mean the end of healthcare reform 5. The President unveils his new banking plan, and the markets have a hissy-fit 6. Bernanke sees some resistance to confirmation 7. Unemployment number wont bend to his will Maybe a bit worse than I thought. Wait, there must be some way to prop up this empty suit, this chalk outline of a President. Im calling on all the warriors out there, both sides of the aisle, make some suggestions. Ill start with these: 1. Bomb Iran: his approval will skyrocket! 2. Quick, immediate tax cuts for all: watch unemployment drop like a stone. 3. Claim he was only kidding about healthcare reform. 4. Fire Eric Holder. 5. Sign onto a weekly show on Fox. Good luck, Mr. President!
