Obama: 52 mistakes in 52 days.

Let me count them up, in no particular order. Some are big. Some are small.

We all make mistakes. Here’s his:
1. A do-over on the oath of office.

2. Tim Geithner.
3. Bill Richardson.
4. Tom Daschle.
5. Eric “Nation of Cowards” Holder.
6. Leon Panetta.
7. Arne “Cappuccino” Duncan.
8. Hilda Solis (OK, her husband has the tax liens).
9. Nancy Killefer.
10. Charles Freeman Jr.
11. Ron Kirk.
12. Adolfo Carrion.
13. Banning offshore oil again.
14. Letting Nancy Pelosi write the $787 billion “stimulus’ plan.
15. Relying on Tim Geithner to explain it.
16. It is a $13-a-week stimulus, or as his wife said of Bush’s plan: “You’re getting $600. What can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything. But maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn’t pay down every bill every month.”
17. Going to a press conference without a TelePrompTer. I… Uhh… Umm… Could you repeat the question?
18. Using a TelePrompTer at a press conference. Big boys don’t need training wheels.

The rest are here.

The Obama Agenda.

Many people assume, and liberals and the Obama administration hope, that because Democrats dominate both houses of Congress they can easily enact Obama's comprehensive agenda. It's not apparent that Obama understands he'll need to use a different set of skills to ensure his proposals become law than those he used to win the election. Even with a Democratic Congress they won't wiz through like the stimulus package.
