It has been a Junius Horribilis for President Obama.
Job growth has stalled, the Democrats have been humiliated in Wisconsin, the attorney general is facing a contempt-of-Congress citation, talks with Pakistan have broken down, Bill Clinton is contradicting Obama, Mitt Romney is outraising him, Democrats and Republicans alike are complaining about a cascade of national-security leaks from his administration, and he is now on record as saying that the private sector is doing fine.
Could it get any worse?
Early Monday morning, Obama learned that it could. His aides delivered the news to him that his commerce secretary had been cited for a felony hit-and-run after allegedly crashing his car three times over the weekend. In one incident, the previously obscure Cabinet officer apparently rear-ended a Buick, spoke to the cars occupants, then hit the vehicle again as he left.
Thus did Jay Carney, the oft-besieged White House press secretary, have another briefing carjacked by bad news. And Carney, who either didnt know the details of the bizarre episode or wasnt at liberty to divulge them, had to execute a full range of defensive maneuvers.
I can simply tell you that he was engaged, as has been reported, in a couple of traffic incidents, Carney began, as if the secretary, John Bryson, had been photographed by a speed camera or two. Bryson suffered a seizure, was hospitalized. But beyond that Ill refer you to Commerce for the details.
Is the secretary healthy and fit to serve? inquired Ben Feller of the Associated Press.

We’ve all heard of a “class clown”....but the entire class of ‘08-’12 are clowns.
Dump these pathetic, pansy bastards.
Sounds like the Democans and Repubicrats are tag teaming Barry either out of hatred, embarrassment, or a turn at the reigns of power. Barry is being tossed under the bus faster than he tossed his dead grandmother. Sweet.
And now the Washington Post is piling on. It’s like a school of piranha’s having a feeding frenzy.
I gotta admit, I’m addicted to watching Obama’s downfall ...
this is so beautiful, after 4 years of putting up with media slobbering over this unqualified clown, I’m loving the schadenfreude, baby!! And it’s hilarious, watching the media do everything they can to avoid reporting what everybody else has already figured out .... DOWNFALL ... bring it on!!
Still A LOT of cheating to overcome to win an election!!!
When did Obama make Lindsey Lohan the Commerce Secretary? I totally missed that.....
THE WASHINGTON POST?......
its gotta be a lie!
Just remember he isn’t gone yet and voter perceptions can turn on a dime. A full court press is needed from now until election day!
HOW SWEET IT IS!
or a coup d’ atat
Obama's statement that the "private sector's doing fine" means they've all capitulated, and that's welcome news since everything they want to do harms the private sector.
This may be the best economic news out of Washington in three years.
Agreed by a million. I am laughing my ass off lately at Obama and his slavish drones.
Full court press you bet.
I hope the bad news just keeps on coming at baraq.
I really think he has been kept in a bubble by his handlers.
Keeps his cool demeaner up.
If he keeps on getting hit with real pressure, he may become his true self and enough Americans see baraq for who he really is.
