And Bush Was The Idiot?

A year ago, Barack Obama had strong personal favorability ratings and very good poll numbers, a supermajority in the Senate, and an overwhelming majority in the House of Representatives.

In the course of little more than a year, he's destroyed his favorability ratings and illusion of competence, has abdicated his role as leader and ripped apart the Democratic Party and the House and Senate to the point no one trusts anyone. Now, the biggest story of the day on the eve of yet another push to pass his health care rationing bill is a claim by a Democrat that he was framed by House leaders in a gay sex scandal so that he would resign and not be a vote against the bill, a bill in which Obama has unwisely invested all of his political capital.

He's now reduced to stump speeches attacking American businesses in the feeble hope of salvaging his wounded pride.

How far he has fallen, and how little he has to show for his zealotry.

This is what zealots and ideologues do. They do not want to be confused by facts or even other opinions. America has not seen in recent history a zealot as committed to his own misguided beliefs as Obama. He is oblivious to his own self destruction and that of his party. He will be a sad, pathetic figure by the time he leaves the White House which cannot be too soon.

It is called Making Jimmy Carter Look Like a Model of Presidential Efficiency and Dignity.

I guess it is the expected result of a pathalogical narcissist and lier - who may well be, when it is all said and done, one of the top 5 WORST presidents in history.

Boy, for a second there I thought I was reading a liberal blog from 2007! See the similarities?
