Obama's had his first half term.
The second half often features a lot of scandals. The Fast and Furious is developing slowly drop by drop. If Obma were smart, a big if, he'd put the word out that he wants all the details dumped right now and anybody involved should resign. But they never learn the Watergate lesson: it's not the initial act, it's the cover up that gets you.
The problem he has with the Solyndra Scandal is that he's in it up to his neck. The Lightsquare one has just started, but it looks seriously like another case of crony capitalism, exactly one of the things his base on the left hates. Crony green capitalism is just as evil as the regular kind, more so because it's hypocritical in the extreme.
