Obama faces growing credibility crisis
“If you ask me where the silver lining is for President Obama, I have to say I cannot see one,” says Bill Galston, a former Clinton official, who has been predicting for months the Democrats could lose the House. “Just as BP’s failure to cap the well has been so damaging, Obama’s failure to cap unemployment will be his undoing. There is nothing he can do to affect the jobless rate before November.”

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” says Rob Shapiro, another former Clinton official and a supporter of Mr Obama. “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

Say what? Also, how appropriate is it that Rahm Emanuel is resigning as Obama's Chief of Staff today. His former quote:
"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste."

Good luck, Chicago. You will need it. And for the rest of America: hold on to your hat.


  1. Many American's like myself still believe in Obama, however it is not a belief as you would in God. He is a man, who has to deal with a bunch of people who act like first graders (since they didn't win the election, they want to take their ball and go home; via filibuster). Many of us aren't falling for the rhetoric and we know that the Republicans only care about money and the rich. Please Obama only has to put himself next to any Republican to show credibility (like he did against McCain). When talking about credibility I think you should look at a party full of people who can never answer a question about their plans, details, and just plain straight-talk that doesn't insult those of us who will investigate to find honest and true answers.

  2. J-bake, again, you are mistaken if you believe I am endorsing the GOP or McCain (not that I think McCain is a bad man, or do I think Obama is). It's the political system that is structurally broken, as it is captured by the banking cartel. They cause inflation, and raise tax rates for everybody (despite rhetoric otherwise)--why else are Americans driven into poverty in record numbers? I have no allegiance to either party, and can see what our government leaders from both sides of the aisle are doing. This story will not have a happy ending.
