Would you help to me to make the proper choice of the meaning of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Barack Obama had tried to do everything right and everything at the same time. Now, he has to realize that he blew it with all sides in the process.
blow = to cause to fail or break down, as by operating at extreme or improper conditions
blow it with all sides = spoil the whole business
Thanks for your efforts.
'blow it' can mean 'blow your chance(s)' = waste/ spoil a good opportunity.
'with all sides' could mean 'with all the parties involved in the discussion'.
