What, pray tell, has he "handled?" He can jump through hoops, play on the merry-go-round, reap the praises heaped on his back and ego till the cows come home or 1/20-21/09, but what has he "handled?"

He has thoughtfully but quickly organized/chosen his Cabinet and staff, has made plans for the transition to be a smooth one, this is important ...this is not a small thing.

I haven't seen him jumping through hoops nor on a merry-go-round ('shroom hallucinations????) and the topic was the transition.

Again, I ask, what has he "handled?"

I will say it slowwwwwwwww so that even YOU can understand it -

T...H...E......T...R...A...N...S...I...T...I...O.. .N

Got that?
The subject of the post?

The TRANSITION?

The building of a new staff, the announcements of appointments - you know, the stuff President-elects are EXPECTED to do after they are elected and before they are actually sworn in.

It's really not all that hard to answer the question - unless you are being deliberately obtuse.

Same defense secretary, no immediate pull-out of Iraq, preemptive attacks on sovereign nations OK, no tax increase for filthy rich, WPT dead, tele com immunity, gay marriage doa, Rich Warren to pray at inaugeration,....Maybe 8 out of 10 Americans like their leaders to have memory issues. Clinton couldn't seem to remember doin' the intern until the dress showed-up to refresh his memory and Reagan couldn't remember much at all in his second term. Maybe Obama has already figured this out. Sorry liberals. Looks like it might be a long couple of years until the next Republican Revolution.

One of best transitions I've seen, being handled like a pro, or at least a man with some brains.

When he says stuff, he uses real sentences and everything and doesn't make up words as he goes along.

Nobody has misunderestimated him, not even once. If he can handle speaking the King's Tongue, being The Prez oughta be a snap. Even Bush could do it, sorta.

Obama is the Berries. The Cat's Pajamas. The Bee's Knees.

Got it?
