Obama Adrift

It’s probably too soon to call the Obama presidency a failure, but if he doesn’t stand up to Congress and show some leadership soon, you’ll be seeing more articles like this.

It also doesn’t help that he can’t find anyone to work for him who doesn’t have a background of tax evasion, conflicts of interest, or general sleaze.

Or for that matter, two Two! days after disavowing the use of signing statements over policy disagreements, he’s using a signing statement as to bend the law over a policy disagreement..

 I know that Obama's earmark protests are just something to keep us rubes in the dark, and so do Reid and Pelosi, so look for the “Next time, I Mean It!” hope of deferred change rhetoric to continue.
