    Charles Hurt;

    THE WASHINGTON TIMES

    ANALYSIS/OPINION:

    The past seven brutal days will go down as one of the worst weeks in history for a sitting president. It certainly has been, without any doubt, the worst week yet for President Obama.

    Somehow, Mr. Obama managed to embarrass himself abroad, humiliate himself here at home, see his credentials for being elected so severely undermined that it raises startling questions about whether he should have been elected in the first place — let alone be re-elected later this year.

    Consider:

    • Last Friday, Mr. Obama wandered into the killing of Trayvon Martin. Aided by his ignorance of the situation, knee-jerk prejudices and tendency toward racial profiling, Mr. Obama played a heavy hand in elevating a tragic situation in which a teenager was killed into a full-blown hot race fight.

    Americans, he admonished, need to do some “soul-searching.” And then, utterly inexplicably, he veered off into this bizarre tangent about how he and the poor dead kid look so much alike they could be father and son. It was election-year race-pandering gone horribly wrong.

    • By the start of this week, Mr. Obama had fled town and was racing to the other side of the planet just as the Supreme Court was taking up the potentially-embarrassing matter of Obamacare. While in South Korea he was caught on a hidden mic negotiating with the president of our longest-standing rival on how to sell America and her allies down the river once he gets past the next election.

    • Meanwhile, back at home, the Supreme Court took up the single most important achievement of Mr. Obama’s presidency and, boy, was it embarrassing. The great constitutional law professor, it turns out, may not quite be the wizard he told us he was.

    By most accounts, Mr. Obama and his stuttering lawyers were all but laughed out of the courthouse. They were even stumbling over softball questions lobbed by Mr. Obama’s own hand-picked justices.

    • Mr. Obama closed his week pulling off a nearly unimaginable feat: He managed to totally and completely unify the nastily-fighting Democrats and Republicans in Congress. Late Wednesday night, they unanimously voted — 414 to zip — to reject the budget Mr. Obama had presented, leaving him not even a thin lily’s blade to hide behind.



    So, in one week, Mr. Obama got caught whispering promises to our enemy, incited a race war, raised serious questions about his understanding of the Constitution, and then got smacked down over his proposed budget that was so wildly reckless that even Democrats in Congress could not support it.

    It was as if you lumped Hurricane Katrina and the Abu Ghraib abuses into one week for George W. Bush. And added on top of that the time he oddly groped German Chancellor Angela Merkel and got caught cursing on a hot mic.

    Even then, it wouldn’t be as bad as Mr. Obama’s week. You would probably also have to toss in the time Mr. Bush’s father threw up into the lap of Japan’s prime minister. Only then might we be approaching how bad a week it was for Mr. Obama.

    Not that you will see any trace of embarrassment in the face of Mr. Obama. He has mastered the high political art of shamelessness, wearing it smugly and cockily. Kind of like a hoodie.

    Bad week or not obummer's approval rating remains at 48%.

    According to at least one poll (see link above), obummer is particularly popular with registered female voters in a heads up race against Romney.

    How Obama saw his week:

    Riled up the base with my comments on Trayvon. Kept the race card in play. The mothers of america will all be behind me on this one. Kept the gun issue hot also. Not a bad day for me.

    Monday night dinner at $40,000 a plate. Raised a cool $800,000 in one night. Adding to my $80 million available ($172 million total raised). Looked at poor Romney, raised only $75 million and only has $7 million left after the primaries.

    The mean republicans in congress are obstructing my budget for change and goodness. Playing right into my hands.

    Arranged for two fund raisers in Detroit. Denise Ilitch is holding a pizza party for me and will raise $1 million. (she is the daughter of the founders of Little Caesers (also owns the Red Wing and Tigers)). The morning will be spent at the Henry Ford museum and will raise another cool million. A two million dollar day. Not bad for a community organizer.

    The supremes will do what they will do. All I can do is shout from afar.

    Talked to George Clooney today. He will host a $40,000 per person party for me in hollywood. Get to hobnob with the hollywood elite. Gonna raise a couple mil on that day.

    End of week, I raised more in one week that Romney has in his entire war chest. Gonna have a lot of money to spend and I already have ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC on my side for free. A good week.

    Plus polls show that 80 plus percent of women will vote for him

    And women in general arent like whinny old men- They actually do vote

    So much money given away and so many special groups courted and we concentrate on his birth certificat and spreading bs like this?

    He couldnt have had a better week- shy of being reelected.

    Get your heads out of your 4th point of contact and go start volunteering at the Romney HQ's to do whatever they need done. You can actually make phone calls from home now.

    But quit pinning your hopes on this garbage

    Regards from Iowa

    Gene

    Hope?

    Hope is not a plan nor a course of action- military history 101
