Ferrara cites Democrat's increasing abandonment of Obama as the path to utter uselessness that will drive Obama to resign. It's true that Obama has been losing many of his most vocal supporters in past weeks; James Carville comes to mind. I wasn't shocked by Peggy Noonan's reversal on Obama; it had been building for a while and this is a woman that once wrote for Reagan, so I felt there might be a "smatch of honor" in there somewhere.
Besides Carville's change of heart, Ferrera also cites Kirsten Powers and her new found lack of faith in Fearless Leader:
If he promised us anything, Obama promised us competence. Instead, we've gotten the Keystone Cops.
It's true that the world is rapidly piling things on Obama's plate. I don't think the Sestak affair is going to disappear, and in fact, Ferrara makes the case that there could be an impeachable offense in this if the issue is probed deeply enough.
Meanwhile, the BP disaster gets worse - Ferrara addresses this as well, pointing out that the well is in federal waters and therefore under the jurisdiction of the federal government, not Louisiana. It was therefore incumbent upon Team Obama to enact the plans that were in place for just such an event. He did not.
Additionally, tensions mount in Arizona, Korea, Iran, the war continues in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gitmo is still open, questions arise with Pakistan and Yemen, and what about Israel? What about the blockade? Heath care? That's certainly not going to win Obama any supporters as people begin to realize what's coming their way and as the confirmation hearings of the Medicare Czar, Dr. Donald Berwick, begin, the public will be reminded how we will soon be a single payer nation with rationing and long waits. The economy? That's not going to help Obama, either, and Ferrara lays out the case quite succinctly on that front.
Being President is a tough job. One that requires experience and the backup of a good, strong, diversified team behind you. Obama has none of that. He brought no significant experience to the job and his "team" is myopic.
Ferrara may be right in suggesting that Obama will resign, but I don't think so. He is too narcissistic to do such a thing. He would never admit, much less conceive of, the fact that he has failed. He will ride this pony as far as he can because his election is "historic!" Anyone who believes he can lower the level of the oceans and cause the world to love us just by his mere election to office would never willingly abandon said office.
In addition, such a resignation would by necessity be motivated by concern for the good of the country and Obama doesn't have that. He looks at America and sees what needs to be changed and reshaped. The deep love for the country and the Founders, for the foundation upon which this country was built, is not in him.
No, he will stay until the bitter end, unless some impeachable offense arises. The question will be if Obama will be on the 2012 ballot or not.
Besides, if he resigned, we'd have Biden.
