While I sincerely believe that Romney would have been a terrible president... Obama is less than thrilling as a president. His administration seems to be stumbling through its last term. (To say the least!)

Between scandal and embarrassment, half your senior staff and cabinet taking a walk in a few short months is not good.

While the "scandals" are primarily GOP inflations of what are in reality rather minor-scale issues that are now coming more to embarras and erode GOP credibility (too much crying scandal wolf) in the long run, Obama is suffering the usual second term duldrums a bit early and is being a bit too reactive and passive in the face of many real issues. Senior political staff often do walk after a term for various reasons: simple fatigue from a gruelling routine, pursue richer opportunities in other realms, and the desire to put in fresh bodies, ideas and enthusiasm to, ironically, ward off second term duldrums.

On the other hand, while Obama might only be stumbling ahead of late, the GOP has simply been stumbing, faltering and collapsing under the weight of intraparty scisms and utter lack of a truly coherent overarching stategy, ideology or philosophy of late, best evidenced by the dearth of any real positive policy initiatives beyond reflexive anti-whatever-Obama proposes.

The only reason the current administration even looks halfway decent is because the GOP is FAWKING UP at every turn and the liberal media is doing everything they can to divert focus away from the very real scandals.

Obama's rating is down near W's at this point and that is almost comical given where it was just a little while back.

In the grand scheme of things... Benghazi is nothing... A footnote.

Lots of other things have more merit both in the shrub's presidency and in Obama's...
