A week after “cash for clunkers” cratered, and months into the un-stimulus, Americans are beginning to question the competence of the Obama administration.
Now the “czar” if cybersecurity is heading off into an early retirement, and Treasury Secretary Geithner is exploding in anger and expletives. Only the hard left loves the Canada-style makeover proposed for healthcare, and the president’s outreach to Iran and other fascist regimes is stalled out.

August is the typically toughest month of the year for presidents, but it is also an opportunity for course corrections.
