The bottom line is that Obama is overwhelmed by this job intellectually and physically. His best ideas have left us with 9.4% unemployment. In the middle of the mid-term campaign, he made a silly mistake and raised the visibility of the Ground Zero Mosque issue.
I think I know why Obama never released copies of his undergraduate transcripts from either Occidental College or Columbia University. His poor marks would be consistent with the utter failure of the stimulus package to live up to all the Democrat party hype.
My recommendation as a political scientist who has read a lot of history and taught courses on the office? Lay-off the vodka martinis, the cigarettes and the nicotine gum. Bring in new people who understand that the Midwest Academy, Bill Ayers, Alice Palmer and Rev. Wright all have the wrong recipe for turning around the U.S. economy.
