Obama's bad week

William Tate
That peculiar sound you hear is the sound of ten million of your tax dollars being flushed down Barack Obama's ego. Obama returned to Washington Friday from a Olympic lobbying junket that went over even flatter than his healthcare numbers.

The Lobbyist in Chief, who railed against lobbyists during the 2008 campaign, had a rough week.

After laying a trap to ensnare the mullahs of Tehran over their nuclear ambitions, Obama was rolled in Geneva by the Iranians, who had tricked him into accepting another round of delaying tactics.

He was publicly embarrassed by his top general in Afghanistan, Stanley McChrystal, who admitted to 60 Minutes that Obama had talked to him exactly once. (McChrystal was hastily called to Denmark to meet with Obama on Air Force One for 25 minutes.)

Obama's poll numbers continue to droop even lower than David Letterman's morals, and Gallup reports more and more of the public are aligning themselves with Republicans.

ObamaCare remains bottled up in Congress, even as an all-time high percentage of Americans (56%) oppose it, according to Rasmussen Reports.

Obamanomics continues to be a miserable failure. The government reported Friday that unemployment rose to a 26 year high, employers shed another 263,000 jobs in September, and factory orders fell in August. After the $787 billion stimulus package Obama rammed through. Obama wasn't actually in the country to hear those numbers. Maybe escaping the dismal Obamanmics news was one of the reasons he and many of his Chicago-machine cronies jetted to Copenhagen, after saying he wouldn't go there, on the taxpayers' dime.

Then, to add injury to insult, members of the International Olympic Committee apparently weren't as impressed with Obama's forensic skills as the Big Media wing of the Democrat Party is. Not only did Obama fail to bring home the Olympic bacon, the teleprompter king didn't even give the best speech to IOC delegates. The Times of London noted,

"(The) vote might have been split on the quality of delivery, but IOC members would have been in no doubt about who had the most compelling message... Sepp Blatter, the chief executive of Fifa, the world governing body for football, said (Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula) de Silva's speech 'went under his skin.' "

Maybe Obama's teleprompter was suffering from jet lag.

And you think you had a bad week?
