Dear President Obama: Here's the executive summary of your screw ups you've been asking for.

Of late, racism as a subject has reared it's head for our discussion.

Most recently brought up by our cluelessly idiotic Attorney General (who also happens to be black), one Eric "you're all cowards" Holder; appointed by another clueless idiot (Who happens to be half black), it seems like many of those you've unfortunately put into positions of authority are incapable of engaging in your "Hope" scam.

Our Vice President, who uttered the increasingly obvious truism that you are not ready to be president, indicated that you would be challenged within six months. And, to a lessor extent, you have been.

And right now, all we have to show for it is a monumental string of failures.

I mention the issue of racism primarilly because there is nothing about your genetic make up that frightens me. It's your shallowness, your arrogance, your ignorance, and the fact that not only are you easily manipulated by people who actually do know what they're doing (Your moronic idea to bury us under an entire mountain range of debt as a start) but your lack of skils in portraying this country as anything but weak-willed and rudderless is going to come back and haunt us.

There are people out there who agree with my perspecdtive... people much smarter than I. And here's one of them:

Charles Krauthammer: It didn't take long for the world to test Obama

Charles Krauthammer writes: The Biden prophecy has come to pass. Our wacky veep, momentarily inspired, had predicted last October that "it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama." It actually came a lot sooner.

WASHINGTON — The Biden prophecy has come to pass. Our wacky veep, momentarily inspired, had predicted last October that "it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama."

Biden probably had in mind an eve-of-the-apocalypse drama like the Cuban Missile Crisis. Instead, Obama's challenges have come in smaller bites. Some are deliberate threats to U.S. interests, others mere probes to ascertain whether the new president has any spine.

Preliminary X-rays are not very encouraging.

Consider the long list of brazen Russian provocations:

• Pressuring Kyrgyzstan to shut down the U.S. air base in Manas, an absolutely crucial NATO conduit into Afghanistan.

• Announcing the formation of a "rapid-reaction force" with six former Soviet republics, a regional Russian-led strike force meant to reassert Russian hegemony in the Muslim belt north of Afghanistan.

• Planning to establish a Black Sea naval base in Georgia's breakaway province of Abkhazia, conquered by Moscow last summer.

• Declaring Russia's intention to deploy offensive Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad if Poland and the Czech Republic go ahead with plans to station an American (anti-Iranian) missile defense system.

President Bush's response to the Kaliningrad deployment — the threat was issued the day after Obama's election — was firm. He refused to back down because giving in to Russian threats would leave Poles and Czechs exposed and show the world that, contrary to post-Cold War assumptions, the U.S. could not be trusted to protect Eastern Europe from Russian bullying.

The Obama response? "Biden Signals U.S. Is Open to Russia Missile Deal," as The New York Times headlined Biden's Feb. 7 Munich speech to a major international gathering.
