UK headline - "Barack Obama: The Weakest President in History?"

Here's a passage from the story in the Daily Express:

"Every day for almost the last two months our television screens, radio broadcasts and the pages of our newspapers have been filled with the pictures, sounds and words of the most tumultuous events any of us can remember in the Arab world. The outcome of these events, once the dust has settled, could literally change the world. Yet Obama seems content to sit this one out. He has barely engaged in the debate. Such ostrich-like behaviour is not untypical of the 49-year-old is starting to look as if Obama and the Democratic Party have but one aim for the rest of this presidential term: to get elected to a second."

The comments to the story are almost as good.
