The president steers the ship of state and right now it seems as if Barack Obama is a worse navigator than an Italian cruise ship captain.
The White House is hitting the rocks and maybe even an iceberg or two in troubled waters freezing in the midst of a refrigerated spring colder than a witch’s, uh, zit.
Obama is not being a standup guy about all this. Instead, he sends out press secretary Jay Carney to swallow the hot lead at a gun gallery masquerading today as a packed briefing room.
Obama has been AWOL in combating several scandals that have his administration taking on more water than Michael Phelps over the years.
That’s because Obama takes no culpability … blaming Benghazi on Republicans fanning embers to flames, the IRS targeting Tea Partiers on dastardly bureaucrats, and snooping on AP journalists’ phone records on the goose-stepping Justice Department.
The god of 2008 that so many worshipped isn’t even a golden calf these days.
