The Dilution Factor

The Watchman believes we're beginning to see the slow unraveling of President Obama. He has sucessfully diluted the power of the president and our enemies can smell weakness. That can be dangerous for all of us. He has proclaimed from the roof tops that he as done so much, but the outcomes don't match the rhetoric. This week he staked the prestige of the most powerful office in the world on gaining a sports extravaganza for Chicago, but came up way sort, loosing the bid for the 2016 Olympics in the first round. He is stumbling badly with His health care initiative. He is fighting off inquiries of many of His czars who don't appear to have been very well vetted. The unemployment rate the He said wouldn't go above 8.0 is now 9.8%. He now faces off with Iran, who seems to thrive on thumbing their nose at democratic presidents (remember Jimma Carter?).

He seems to be a great idea guy, but looses interest and runs off to the next big idea. While this is good if one is venture-capitalist in business, but disastrous if you are the leader of the free world. Little by little He's going to dilute what little is left of His personal "charm" as the constant campaigning He launches into at the drop of a hat. Then is when we'll start to see the real Obama. And it won't be pretty.
