Worst Failure Ever

Republican geeks are giggling today as the Google search "worst failure ever" brings up President Obama's White House page.

See, because they think he's a failure! It's comedic gold.

The web design technique for pushing a website to the top of a specific Google search is called "Google bombing." There's a ton of information on the Google bomb Wikipedia page (first link), but basically, in the Obama case, right-wing web site owners linked to a specific White House web page and tagged it with "worst failure ever." Multiply the page linking 3,000 times, and the Google search algorithm is fooled into thinking that the term has a lot to do with the page's content.

Obviously, "worst failure ever" isn't the first Google bomb, nor will it be the last.

You might remember "miserable failure," which pushed George W.

Bush's biography to the first spot, or "French military victories," which returned a page that suggested there were only French military defeats.

"Worst failure ever" is funny, but is Obama already a failing president? Many conservative bloggers have crowed over a recent Obama job approval poll (from Rasmussen Reports, FOX News' favorite polling bureau) that shows his support waning, but â€" my favorite poll aggregator â€" shows a 56.7 approval rate and a 37.8 disapproval rate today.

Those aren't exactly bottom of the barrel numbers, guys.

One of my coworkers tells me that Rasmussen has another poll up today (not related to "worst failure ever," third link) that shows Obama and ex-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney tied at 45 percent each for the 2012 presidential election.

The same poll shows Obama beating Sarah Palin by six percentage points â€" 48 to 42 percent.

That's not a very wide margin â€" considering that Obama was elected with 56 percent of the popular vote just a few months ago.

Is it early enough to tell if Obama is the worst failure ever? Would you vote for him in 2012? Would you vote for Palin or Romney?
