You've got to wonder when White House political guru David Axelrod will look at the churning pools of poll data and, like Chief Brody in Jaws, say: "We're gonna need a bigger boat."And here are more dire diagnostics from Bill Wilson at NetRight Daily.

But in one sense, the analogy works just fine: This White House is rudderlessly lost at sea and inadequate to the challenges it faces.
