Web already lists Obama as 'failure'

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- The Obama administration has been hit with so-called Google bombs that have the president listed No. 1 in searches for "failure," the Los Angeles Times says.

The Times said Friday the Web site Search Engine Land discovered the pranks were still lingering even after the Bush administration team vacated the White House.

A Yahoo search for "miserable failure" still lists President Bush's bio page at No. 1, but the new president is right there in second place.

The Times said such classic Google bombs may be old hat for Web-savvy wise guys, but the tech-savvy Obama team has yet to defuse them.
