While I might not be quite as hard on Barack Obama as this writer was, I substantially agree (sad to say.)
Even sadder to say, my biggest quibble with the article is that the writer compares Obama to Conan O’Brien.
Conan, for his part, didn’t ruin anything, and is entitled to at least a year, and perhaps several. As Jay Leno was allowed several years to find his range and pull in the big numbers. TV and the presidency aren’t the same. O’Brien was a victim of executive impatience and market whims. Obama is, however, shaping up to be a huge failure (aside from breaking the color barrier in the Oval Office) if he doesn’t do something. The presidency is a place for boldness and conviction. Not patience and waffling. Four years go by real fast.
Obama. Do something. Something very right. Something very, very soon.
