Where Have All the Good Times Gone?

Is it just me, or is the Obama administration in a flat-out free-fall?

His approval rating is in the tank, he's getting slaughtered on health care since most people actually like their insurance, Cash for Clunkers is a disaster. Meanwhile, Obama needs a do-over with Israel, his Gitmo solution lies in absolute shambles, and he drinks Bud Light. The only currently non-controversial moves seem to be his many affirmations of Bush policy.

He has become a cartoon character faster than he sheds campaign promises.

The Generic Congressional Ballot has Republicans up by five points, a lead almost equal their deficit in 2008. Then there's this:

Voters not affiliated with either party prefer Republicans two-to-one - 43% to 22%.

Deservedly to Bush or not, Obama took office with nowhere to go but up. That opportunity has slipped into disaster pretty steadily. Republicans up by five just seven months into 2009? That's an epic fail.

Something to keep in mind for the future: When the time comes the American people favor the Democratic party to lead, perhaps the time has come to let it.
