Not being strong enough against the idiotic Republicans.

Taking that first breath of air.. it's been downhill ever since

yeah, I totally ignored the part about since being sworn into office. His failures started WAY before that day.

Not sending the Bush Administration to Guantanamo to be held until they can be formally convicted of War Crimes/Crimes Against Humanity and sent to Supermax for life.

Trying to or assuming to try to work with Republicans on ANY issue of substance.

Trusting the Rebel Blue Dog Dems to vote the Party line 1st.

Running for office. He should have let McCain win and then sat back and watch the Republicans try to clean up this mess.

The handling of the auto bailout. Arbitrarily forcing thousands of small businesses to close in the auto takeover; the dispossession of Chrysler secured lenders and GM bondholders; and the extraordinary preferences granted to the UAW at the expense of taxpayers and investors. Each of these is a vast abuse of power by itself.

Underestimating how much opposition he would be facing and not have the experience to know how to handle it. I think he ran too soon but unfortunatly that election was like the perfect storm and given the players in the game there was no way the Republicans were going to win it. I also think they didn't do enough work on the healthcare bill before pushing it through. That created a lot of bad blood that could have been avoided.

Telling too much truth. The economy still stinks, he has said that rather than being a cheerleader like W. He isn't an underwater engineer so he hasn't been swimming in the Gulf everyday wearing a diving suit.

He reminds me a lot of Bush 1: a guy who accomplished a lot of "important little things" (even when it wasn't politically wise) - things that historians rather than voters will appreciate.
