Where's Joe?

We haven't heard too much from Biden lately, but judging from this photo, I guess we can understand why. I've never seen such naked disdain from one human being to another.

Is it 2012 yet?

Ed Driscoll at Pajamas Media reminds us what Karl Rove said about Barack Obama before he ever became president: “Even if you never met him, you know this guy,” Rove said, per Christianne Klein. “He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.” Wow, did Rove ever nail "this guy."

Driscoll: What’s he thinking now? Oh, my God, I’m only one-quarter through this thing. And they’re going to expect me to campaign again too? Bleh! Driscoll says he sees fatigue in Obama's face--The man is tired and it’s a way to get above it all. And that’s the other thing I see in that face: He’s tired and he’s floating above it all.

Barack Obama may be tired, as Paul A. Rahe agrees in his article, "Barack Obama and the Exhausted Presidency," but if so he needs to shake it off and do the job he was elected to do. The Left elected this guy because he was so cool, so smooth, so cerebral. Well, cerebral doesn't lead well, and what we need in the White House is a leader. It's honestly frightening to think how far off the mark this guy is, how badly he fits the characteristics needed to be POTUS. To many of us, that was obvious from 'way before day one. WE TRIED TO TELL YOU, Leftists, that this guy didn't fit, but you were so over the moon about electing a Black man as president, so determined to elect this guy, no matter what. It was as if the country lost its collective mind for awhile. Well, even those on the Left are starting to gain their wits again. The 2010 elections should tell us a lot about what to expect in 2012.

HillBuzz asks the question that Obama's first-year performance in the office makes obvious: What happens socially and politically if "the first black president" remains an enormous failure?
