Number of Days it took the President to Mess Up

It's only been 15 days (at the time of writing) since the glorious inauguration of the 44th President. Today, President Obama admitted that he made a mistake by nominating former Democratic Leader in the Senate and long-time mentor, Tom Daschle

"I think I screwed up," Obama said in a wide-ranging interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper. "And I take responsibility for it and we're going to make sure we fix it so it doesn't happen again." (Article of Interest: "Obama: 'I screwed up' on Daschle appointment")

Daschle withdrew his nomination after it was discovered that he had more than $150,000 in back taxes. This is however, NOT his first screw up. Click here to see a list of his questionable nominees..

A survey of America's mainstream media reveals that Obama and America are still on their honeymoon as many of them fail to mention his previous errors in judgement. Big ups to NPR (National Public Radio) for picking up on this story.

(Editor's Note: Why doesn't spell check pick up the word "Obama"?)
