America – what have you done? 101

 Melanie Phillips describes the ‘torrid First Fortnight’ of Obama’s presidency, and then asks:

And how did the 44th President react to the growing public dismay over the mess he was making? He threw his toys out of the pram – or perhaps that should read, he got into the pram. For he fled the scene of the disaster and sought the company of seven year-olds instead. As the Telegraph reported:

‘We were just tired of being in the White House,’ he told a group of excited seven-year-olds before discussing Batman and reading them a book.

Tired of being President – after two weeks!

Tax cheats, pork-barrel politics, ancillary child abuse, incompetence, chaos, treachery and infantilism. America – what have you done?!
