Well, somebody appears peeved

In electing Barack Obama the Left ignored his totally lack of experience or achievement and instead acted as if that "President of the United States" was just another affirmative action, OJT entry level position.  Why the Left believed that someone who had never done anything would suddenly do something credible is beyond me.  Instead of Hope and Change they got Bumbling and Ineptitude and now we are being treated to a chorus of whoa is me.

How to Squander the Presidency in One Year:

Barack Obama has now, in just a year's time, become the single most inept president perhaps in all of American history, and certainly in my lifetime. Never has so much political advantage been pissed away so rapidly, and what's more in the context of so much national urgency and crisis. It's astonishing, really, to contemplate how much has been lost in a single year.

It was hilarious, of course, when Michelle Bachmann invoked the Charge of the Light Brigade at a rally against "Obama's" (has he ever really owned it?) health care "initiative" (isn't that too strong a word to use?), quite oblivious to the fact that the actual historical event was one of history's greatest debacles. Obama, on the other hand, seems to be actually reliving the famous cock-up in the flesh. Except, of course, that he doesn't really "charge" at anything. He just talks about things, thinks about things a real long time, defers to others on things, and waits around for things to maybe happen.

This week, though, something actually did happen. Alas, not precisely what the president had in mind, however.

But the election in Massachusetts was only slightly less inevitable than the sun rising in the east each morning. It was the product of an amazing collection of abysmal choices and practices over the last year that has produced a meltdown of equally amazing proportions for this president and his party. It is fitting that it comes on the anniversary of the president's inauguration, a moment filled with so much hope for so many just a year ago.
At first glance one would think that little critique of the President had been written by an anti-Obama conservative but it wasn't.  The author is progressive professor David Michael Green of Hofstra University.  It appears that Obama has lost the Left, never had the Right, and the middle are flocking away from his policies in droves.  In other words, something good is coming out the election of Obama after all.
