Rats beginning to abandon Obama’s Sinking Ship?
It hasn’t been a good week so far for the President, and it’s only Tuesday. First, word leaks out that his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanual is quitting, due to conflicts with Obama’s “idealistic inner circle.” Yeah, get in line. Next, we find out that Barry’s budget director Peter Orszag will be exiting the Cabinet in July while leaving, as Ed Morrissey says, “a substantial legacy — as in a trillion-dollar-plus deficit and a $2.2 trillion math error.” Next, Obama and his Administration are blasted by Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan for their strategy there, in a Rolling Stone article of all places.
While all of this is going on, the Pelosi-led House of Representatives won’t pass a 2010 budget–the first time since 1974. Why not? Because the Democrats in charge don’t have enough votes to pass a budget that increases both spending and taxes during an election year. Want more? Obama plans to sue the state of Arizona over its immigration law, while simultaneously refusing to secure the U.S.-Mexico border. Finally, the President’s ill-conceived, job-killing Gulf oil moratorium has been blocked by a Federal judge.
Amazingly, in light of everything going on, it’s admirable that he can still find time to golf.
