    Over the past few weeks, we've been treated to a precise and detailed preview of what the rest of the Obama presidency will be like: a sky black with chickens coming home to roost and blaming George W. Bush.

    Not even midway into the Obama presidency, we've been hit with two major crises and a scandal. Constituting the first serious challenges to confront this administration, they arrive quite belated, occurring eighteen months into Obama's first term. Obama has had plenty of time to prepare (recall that Bush was thrust into his moment of truth less than nine months after taking office). So how has he done?

    The crises are, of course, the Deepwater Horizon blowout and the sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan. (The Israeli maritime strike against Hamas has not yet blown up to crisis level, though the administration is doing its best to accomplish that.) The scandal is the Sestak affair, now promoted to the Sestak-Romanoff affair.

    George W. Bush was condemned by everybody from the man in the street to Heaven's mighty seraphim due to the fact that federal aid did not arrive in New Orleans for three whole days after Hurricane Katrina struck. (This was -- and remains -- standard operating procedure for federal disaster assistance. It's hard to see how it could be otherwise -- but we'll skip that.) It has been six weeks since the Deepwater Horizon blowout. And what has the Obama administration accomplished in a time period fourteen times longer than that granted to Bush?

    Well, we've seen Obama frowning. Obama sticking his fingers into the sand. Obama saying he's frustrated. Obama telling us a heartwarming story about his daughter. He even, according to spokesman Robert Gibbs, said "damn" at one point. (Though this has not yet been independently verified by a third party.)

    That's it. That's the sum total of accomplishment by Barack Obama, his administration, his party, and his bureaucracy, in facing his first major domestic crisis.

    Any democrat with a chance is distancing themselves from BO. Only candidates who are desparate take BO's help. He's not had one win for anyone he campaigned for.

    It's over. Finished. This President is a collosal failure. The American people have made the biggest mistake in our history.

    Maybe electing a Marxist Ideologue wasn't the best idea the American people ever came up with

    I wouldn't say that three incidents and his responses make his total presidency a failure. But they are indicative of how he will respond to any challenge. And the evidence is scary. He vacillated on Afghanistan before embarking on a course that will surely fail. He vacillated on health care while the Democrats in Congress fashioned a bill and rammed it through. He has pissed off the British, the Czechs, the Poles, and the Israelis. He has lost the respect of the Iranians, who are playing him for a fool, the North Koreans, who will shortly, and the Turks, who will do godknowswhat with Israel.
    In all, he has displayed, as he did during the campaign, a serious lack of judgment and an appalling decision making process.

    Major reach on your part....but what the hell

    Its all you got. With any luck, the economy will fail and the gulf will turn into a tar pit.

    Thats what the conservatives have been hoping
