This is what happens when you put a marketing guy in charge

Not that there's anything wrong with marketing, but "all sizzle and no steak" is a completely inadequate approach to governing, as opposed to running an election campaign. Obama seems to think his job is to issue a steady stream of press releases on this year's policy models, be it health care, job creation or terrorism, leaving the design, engineering and finance details to somebody - or, just as frequently, to everybody - else. What you get is the proverbial horse designed by committee (i.e., a camel).

But I guess even marketing can be an exhausting job. Surf's up, Mr. President!

"Yes, Mr. President. Enjoy an environment in which 'hang ten' means something quite different than it does here in Tehran!"

All this publicity about Gobama being half way to Australia, in Hawaii, may be too much for our ear wax gobbling prime minister.

Don't be surprised if the milky bar kid just happens upon the POTUS, on the beach.

Maybe he'll invite him to spend the night in his car.

Interesting colors on the towel.
