Understatement of the Year

Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y. said Friday that Republicans outmaneuvered Obama by getting the estate-tax provisions and an extension of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.

Republicans turned out to be "better poker players" than the president," Weiner told CBS' Early Show. He said that when the latest agreement expires in 2012, Obama and lawmakers will face enormous election-year pressure to extend the tax cuts again or make them permanent.

Weiner said that Obama's future negotiations with Republicans should be more cautious.

"Bipartisanship has to be a means, not an end," he said. "I'm not sure the president gets that yet, but I am going to work hard to make him a success."

This, from a senior Democratic Party operative lamenting The Messiah's abject defeat at the hands of republican majority leader John Boehner. And even Hollywood is turning its back on the erstwhile genius.

Maybe, they and their mates in the media shoulda woke up about half way through 2008 to the fact their guy had no experience, no ability, no political nous and no common sense. Goddammit, he cain't even play poker to save hisself.

It's aaaaaall too late folks.

Roll on 2012. Meantime stock up on cigars, beer and popcorn. The entertainment will be non stop as Obama goes on to out perform Jimmy Carter.

Why, I'll betcher Dubbya could whip the BA off the JA in eighteen holes of match play, even.
