From the day Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress have been obsessed and possessed.

Everything took a back seat to passing Obamacare.

And other transformative legislation and regulations intended to turn us into the failing West European economic model.

Because “he recognizes his place in history long before he has created history.”

Nitty gritty governance?

Not of interest, not historic, not transformative, not done.

The most historic administration “since the Great Depression” watched and waited and twiddled its thumbs and dawdled and ditherered and yawned and blamed others and did little when it counted most in the ongoing Gulf oil spill.

The psychological infirmity which gave rise to the obsession with transformation has left this nation weaker abroad, a laughingstock to every tinpot dictator with a Twitter account, a debt-engine heading for a cliff, in a jobless quagmire, and

with its first victims.

Update: Cowboy talk and street taunts are not going to do the job:

“We will keep our boot on their neck until the job gets done,” U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told reporters after touring affected areas of the Gulf coast with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and a group of U.S. senators.
