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.

At least Carter was in office for 24 months before turning into a complete f**kup.

Didn’t you get the memo from the MSM? President Teleprompter isn’t to be criticized!

After a year it should become apparent to even the dimmest liberal that The Great Spreader is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on America and by extension the world. This guy literally knows nothing about how America works. His whole life has been spent compiling grievances and studying Marxist “solutions” to problems that need a person somewhat cognizant of free-market economics.

THANK YOU so much for the ping! This is a great start on the list.

The comments at the site are almost better than the author's list!!!

Note that 2 posters mentioned "Obama skipped the Inaugural Ball honoring Medal of Honor recipients."

A gross underestimate.

(And latest, he signed a budget bill that countermanded his own executive order on Stem Cell research. He’s probably kicking himself right now for missing the chance to further engorge the Culture of Death.)

Thanks for the ping, Justa!

So sad and so true. The turkeys a bumbler and is way in over his head, our country will suffer greatly because of his supposed leadership.

I like Anna’s reply to the libtard in the comments, she nailed it and I see you picked up on our boy president snubbing the Medal of Honor Ball, that was despicable.

Camile Paglia from Salon.com has this to say about Obama’s first weeks in office: (Perhaps the Dems will listen to one of their own?)

- Heads should be rolling at the White House for the embarrassing series of flubs that have overshadowed President Obama’s first seven weeks in office ...

- First it was that chaotic pig rut of a stimulus package, which let House Democrats throw a thousand crazy kitchen sinks into what should have been a focused blueprint for economic recovery.

- Then it was the stunt of unnerving Wall Street by sending out a shrill duo of slick geeks (Timothy Geithner and Peter Orszag) as the administration’s weirdly adolescent spokesmen on economics. Who could ever have confidence in that sorry pair?

- And then there was the fiasco of the ham-handed White House reception for British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, which was evidently lacking the most basic elements of ceremony and protocol. Don’t they read the “Iliad” anymore in the Ivy League? Check that out for the all-important ritual of gift giving, which has cemented alliances around the world for 5,000 years.

- The orchestrated attack on radio host Rush Limbaugh, which has made the White House look like an oafish bunch of drunken frat boys. ... Has the administration gone mad? This entire fracas was set off by the president himself, who lowered his office by targeting a private citizen by name.

Anna was the main reason I encouraged everyone to read the comments! She did some awesome work there!!!

The Medal of Honor Ball was the first thing I thought of when I saw the title. I guess a Brit wouldn't think of that one. Was happy to see more than one brought it up.

We have no president, only a usurper until proven otherwise!
Or, if I must, he may be addressed as:
pres__ent barry, that's president without the ID!
