Cabinet Comedy

The Obamedy continues! At least this time it wasn’t because of tax fraud.

We’re now looking for Obama’s third secretary of Commerce.

It is really quite astonishing. “I screwed up” may become a bi-weekly confession.

At some point, things like this can begin to cement a (negative) image in the public imagination. Discrete issues converge and form a single, harmful impression. Obama & Company were looking increasingly amateurish before today; this is now bordering on incompetence…

Less than a month ago, Barack Obama was seemingly sitting atop the world. We all knew reality would set in soon enough; what we didn’t know was how quickly the magic would fade, and give way to what we are now witnessing. It’s still early, of course, and presidents can recover from their initial missteps. But Obama and his team have dug themselves a fairly deep early hole.

The narrative ain’t what it once was.

No, it sure isn’t. Just ask the CEO of Caterpillar.
