But some on the Right are already sensing Obama's failure and defeat.
Case in point: Oklahoma City blogger and gadfly Mike McCarville, who has posted survey numbers showing "strong disapproval" of Obama's performance as president-elect.
Whoa Nelly! That was fast—too fast, we submit, to mean much of anything. Are we really supposed to believe that Obama, elected Tuesday, has already ticked off a significant portion of the public? Aren't these the same hard-core people who despised Obama in the first place?
Another question: What exactly was the disaffected public basing its negative opinion on?
Perhaps it was Obama's first news conference, the one in which he spoke coherent English (and in full sentences!) unlike the Current Occupant.
Sorry, Mike, one survey does not a trend make.
Beyond the fact that Obama won't be inaugurated until January 20 and that he will have to spend months—no, years!—cleaning up the Bush mess, it might be fair-minded and even prudent to give the guy a chance to actually organize is administration before you pronounce his presidency a failure.
