Reboot -- Obama 2.0

Obama's first year is drawing to a close, and it looks like his gaggle of advisors have not served him well. I'm reading that Vallery Jarrett will be blamed for the Olympics fiasco, and Rahm Emanuel is the bag-holder for health care reform.

With the 2010 Congressional elections looming, and the economy flagging, Obama will be under intense pressure to "do something". Will he lurch to the right with a whole new cast of characters in the White House? Will he personally accept any blame for these blunders? Will Michelle be relegated to planting carrots in the garden?

rotfl. Lurch to the right?? Be serious. What would it get him? Certainly won't win any righty votes, and it would lose him 90% of his lefty votes.

The Olympics thing now being touted as an epoch-shattering 'fiasco' by right-wing pundits will probably be forgotten in a week. As for health care reform, it failed because they started too close to center and too willing to cave, which resulted in an evaporation of support from the base.
