    And people here wonder why, even with bat shit crazy Repubicans, Obama is not going to have a cake walk to reelection.  

    Of course that reelection assumes there won't be a brokered convention and the Republicans settle on a Jeb Bush.  

    What would be for other politicians an admission of rank incompetence, instead becomes an occasion for a pity party to rally the troops around their embattled general--who, they argue, is at least is honest about his failure.

    The new selling point.  

    We've gone from "the smartest guy in the room" to the "eleventy dimensional chessmaster" to "at least he admits his failures".  

    This is a nightmare.  We have crazy on the GOP side and incompetent/ignorant on the other.
