A Growing Credibility Crisis

So says the Financial times, about Obama's presidency:

“The bottom line here is that Americans don’t believe in President Obama’s leadership,” says Rob Shapiro, another former Clinton official and a supporter of Mr Obama. “He has to find some way between now and November of demonstrating that he is a leader who can command confidence and, short of a 9/11 event or an Oklahoma City bombing, I can’t think of how he could do that.”

Actually, the entire U.S. ruling elite - and their assorted Yes Men, courtiers, poolboys and Hacks - face a growing a credibility crisis. For what does the Republican leadership offer in response but a collection a retreads, nutcases and hucksters; i.e. Gingrich, Palin and Romney.

The slaughters in Iraq and Afghanistan, Katrina, the Oil Spill, the Financial goes on and on.
