It's not just that Kevin Rudd is suffering disontent over rising food and fuel prices or even a breached promise over a major Queensland motorway project.
But the blonde haired TinTin that took the keys to Kirribilli House off John Howard less than 7 months ago is increasingly under fire for spin , lies, and poor political management.
It is also backtracking on promises like a PC for every secondary schoolkid or on whaling; throwing $70million at rich Japanese corporates, facing troubles over plans to monitor food and fuel prices and raising thetax on alcopops, which also hits the Bundy and Coke drinking blokes.
Rudd also upset New Zealand over proposing an Asian Economic Community without consulting New Zealand.
Now, there is a growing belief , even by some in Labor, that Kevni may just be a one-term Prime Minister.
Columnist Laurie Oakes even likens the blundering Rudd to British 'Mr Bean" PM Gordon Brown.
But it is not just the media nhappy with Rudd, so are the left, claiming hypocrisy from 'radioactive Rudd' and
also wondering whether the Rudd 'honeymoon is over.'
Indeed, with the once shattered opposition now scoring hits against KRudd, there is talk that former Treasurer Peter Costello may stay in politics, rather than leave for corporate life as planned, and may even become Liberal Leader once more. His economic skills are desperately needed and Rudd's failings could mean they will be needed to govern Australia in a few years after all!
