Obama had but to hum a few bars and Bob Tyrrell, who happened to be sitting at the piano, picked up the tune:
WASHINGTON — Egads, it is going to be a long four years! It is only two weeks since the Prophet Obama’s inauguration, and already he has revived memories of Boy Clinton’s first 100 days. Political observers with a sense of history might well ask whether the Obama Administration will approximate the adolescent incompetence of Clinton Administration or the Pecksniffian pratfalls of the Carter Administration. Presidential historian that I am, allow me to caution my fellow citizens that here in the vestibule of the Obama Administration it is probably too early to say. Yet with the economy in crisis and American national security in the hands of a starry-eyed novice, one can argue that we are in for a reprise of the Carter years complete with the self-righteous pout.
I myself find it amusing that Obama, who I wrote here repeatedly would be a catastrophe, is now actually warning of, what else, a catastrophe. Nothing like a firm, confident hand on the rudder.
