Obama, the political science project

Whether Barack Obama's occupation of the White House ends in 2012 or 2016 remains to be seen, but one thing's certain...he'll be studied in political science classes for generations to come. How a man viewed by supporters and detractors alike as an extraordinarily adept political figure could turn out to be so inept defies logical explanation.

Unless one's been obsessively keeping a daily diary since his inauguration in January, it's become impossible to catalog all the major and minor blunders of the charlatan Obama. When he's not giving the Queen of England an iPod (a fucking iPod!) as a state gift, holding beer summits on the White House lawn, or bantering aimlessly for two or three minutes before getting around to addressing the murder of 13 Americans by an Islamist extremist US soldier, he's bungling one foreign policy issue after another...Russia (scrapping Eastern Europe missile defense with nothing in return), Iran (nuclear program and fraudulent elections), Honduras (backing Marxist thug legally removed from office), Afghanistan (can't formulate policy, never mind strategy)...the list is already endless after just 10 months in office.

Most recently, he's decided that Berlin, Germany is a fine city in which to deliver a presidential campaign speech, but can't be bothered to visit to observe the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. He resorts to making lurid sexual references to the millions of Americans who oppose the current health care reform proposals.

And the son of a bitch hovers around 50% approval rating. How did America get so fucking stupid? Maybe political science majors fifty years from now will figure it out.

Lest you not forget he can read a teleprompter like nobody's business, AND he's not George Bush!
