Will Obama Resign?

I'll be the first to admit that Obama had a bad day yesterday. The Iranians and the North Koreans were rattling their sabers, and Obama's conciliatory "unclench your fist" line has only been making things worse. The message of hope and change hasn't been quite as contagious as expected.

Moreover, Obama lost his Health Care Czar nominee, and his Performance Officer nomineeboth for the same reason: more tax embarrassing tax scandals. Apparently Joe Biden is Obama's only friend who takes his patriotic duties seriously.

To make matters worse, as the economy continues to circle the drain, the highly partisan stimulus plan is becoming increasingly unpopular with the public and is running out of steam in the Senate. To get bipartisan support, it will need a radical makeover.

The clock is ticking. Reporters are asking annoying questions. Obama apologists are working overtime to smooth things over, but things look awful right now. Irrational exuberance is giving way to the grim reality of running the world's most important country during tough times.

So on Tuesday, under the cumulative pressure of two weeks on the job, Obama left the White House on short notice to chill out with second-graders. It's apparently a great way for presidents to decompress, but if we learned only one thing from 9/11, it's that world leaders can't sit around reading storybooks with grade schoolers when there's important work to be done.

Obama is cracking under the pressure, and Ahmadinejad and the North Koreans are lovin' it. If Obama can't handle the heat, he needs to make way for someone who can do the job.


Obama escapes
"We were just tired of being in the White House," the president candidly told the gleeful second-graders at Capital City Public Charter School.

Withdrawal Syndrome
There's no question that the seemingly well-oiled machine of the transition has not hummed quite as smoothly in the first weeks of the Obama administration. The three appointees ought to have been thoroughly vetted and considered during the transition to avoid a conflagration at a time when President Obama has a government to run.

Why Daschle Withdrew His Nomination (according to George Stephanopoulos)
Already depressed by the recent discovery that his younger brother is stricken with brain cancer, Daschle wasn't prepared for another week of Senate hazing and damaging headlines. Stephanopoulos, your credibility is no good here.

North Korea Rattling Sabers
North Korea appears to be preparing to test-launch its longest range ballistic missile, media reports said on Tuesday, stoking tensions just days after the reclusive state warned that the Korean peninsula was on the brink of war. North Korea last week scrapped all agreements with South Korea, a move analysts said was in response to Seoul's tough policies toward Pyongyang as well as designed to grab the attention of U.S. President Barack Obama.

Iran launches satellite
Iran says it has launched its first domestically made satellite into orbit. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the launch had been successful and that with it Iran had "officially achieved a presence in space". A US state department official said the launch was of "great concern" and could lead to ballistic missile development.

Only 38 percent of Americans favor the existing stimulus proposal.

Obama resign? Oh, wouldn't that be SWEET!!!

The MSM will never be tough enough on Obama. He may get a few annoying questions, but they will let him slide, and then blame everything on Bush like they always do.

"Will Obama Resign?"

I doubt it, but we can dream, can't we?

love the poll, as for the President I expect a world tour soon so he can enjoy the swooning adulation he got used to.

This guy's ego is far too big for him to ever resign.

Poor Obambi is really feeling the pressure now, finally realizing what we all knew - that he is in way over his head. This clueless idiot hasn't even run something like a PTA meeting in his life and now he's President of the United States. The thrills of the campaign trail with all the adoring praise and adulation of his "fans", including the gushing MSM, is over and the heat is on. I think he finally is realizing what this job is all about. Unfortunately for this great country, we're all screwed!

BO is not going to resign.He spent too much of other people's money to become POTUS to quit now.The main problem is if he does that wuold leave Biden in charge.Scary thought to be sure.But if Biden also resigns then that would leave Pelosi in charge.It's a lose lose lose situation.

2cwMaine: After two weeks of travails, he's already hiding out in 2nd grade classrooms. How is he going to get through 4-8 years?

DD2: It would be a dream come true for sure...but then Biden would be president wouldn't he. Yikes! And if Biden resigned, we'd be stuck with Pelosi?? Even more scary.

RV: You're right, the adoration is what Obama lives for.

2cwNJ: My sentiments exactly

James: You beat me to the punch! Great minds...

DaBlade said...

I screwed up.

Could there be a worse time for this light weight to be in charge?

Zeph said...

"I screwed up"

We'll be hearing that a lot over the next four years...i just hope that it isn't under horrible circumstances.

First time the wife has come out to bless us with her presence. Makes me feel all tingly in my stomach. Kind of like having a real bad case of the flu. I am sorry but just can't stomach that woman.

RightKlik said...

Zeph: Obama probably won't take responsibilty for any of his major disasters.

M: I'm not sure who is more annoying, Obama or Michelle.

Conservative Black Woman said...

One can only hope that he will resign. Yes, that's it! That's what I'm "hoping" for -- PSBO's resignation. Oh, but then we'd have Biden--what a conumdrum...

CBW: Obama is smart. He knows we can't hope for him to go, because is VP is even worse.
