Competence was never Barry’s strong point

May 30, 2010 – 22:10 | by admin

Some people are starting to notice that our Dear Leader isn’t really living up to their expectations of a mildly competent President.

Let’s get serious people! It has been plain from the beginning that his actual “leadership” experience was limited to a brief stint as a Cub Scout.

The American voters who bothered to go to the polls back in November 2008 elected a man who has never held a private sector job in his life!

He was very good at making promises during the campaign, but not so good at actually keeping them once elected.  Foreign leaders are also not taking Barry very seriously eitherCompetence was not what our Dear Leader ran on. It was pure charisma and hatred against his opponents, including fellow democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton.   What we have gotten has been back room, corrupt Chicago style politics, not leadership, and if you have been paying attention, that shouldn’t have come as a surprise.

Update: Roger Kimball makes the following observation:

But incompetence is only one aspect of Obama’s make up. There are two other attributes along with an under-appreciated, or at least under-commented on, character flaw that we must ponder in order to take the full measure of this post-modern American politician.

The other two attributes are 1) arrogance and 2) ideological animus.

    Barack Obama is essentially the living embodiment of virtually everything that is wrong with the Democratic Party.

    It’s no wonder they love him.
