Is the Obama Presidency Worth Saving?

After reading a long and overly analytical article on Obama's failed policies thus far it became apparent the author was trying to keep the energy of "Hope and Change" alive.

The headline of the article reads, Can This Presidency Be Saved?. To which the response ought to be, Why Would Anybody Want To Save A Failure? Of course the obvious answer, at least to those who aren't hooked on hopium is, nobody would.

Some excerpts from the article.
President Obama still has a shot at convincing voters that the GOP would make things worse, but his administration has not just lost control over the direction of the economy. It has lost control of the discussion about the economy.

Why did the stimulus fail? What did the President learn from this failure and what will the President try next? The White House has been so busy bobbing and weaving it has not communicated a simple, clear story about what went wrong and what happens next.

Nobody at this point really knows what the President stands for – at home or abroad. He is not George W. Bush and he is not Bill Clinton, but who is he and where is he taking us? He seems bogged down in the minutiae of policies – most of which don’t seem to be working very well. He has given his opposition valuable gifts, setting goals for himself which he then fails to meet: that the stimulus would keep unemployment below 8 percent, public demands for Israeli concessions he failed to achieve, the promise that his health care proposals wouldn’t effect anyone who liked their current insurance, and the infamous “days not weeks” prediction about the Libya campaign. {Continue Reading}

Smitty over at The Other McCain has the following observation.
No, he’s jumped the intellectual shark. Unfortunately, he’s still got to land, and will lay economic waste to the country while doing so. I hope he lives decades to come, and grows to realize the depth of the contempt people hold for his ideas. {Read Smitty's full commentary.}

Rational Nation USA is in full agreement.
