A Crisis Of Competence

"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." ~ Proverbs 16:18

Normally, I don't copy and paste articles into my blog form. I even put that in my blogger profile. I usually would rather offer my own thoughts, however disjointed and illogical they may be, and let the chips fall where they may.

That said, this article nailed Obama more accurately than anything I've ever read. Andrew Cline is dead on in his assessment of Barack Hussein Obama.

So, with the readers indulgence, here's a teaser for you offered in the hope it will entice you to read further:

"Patience, Obama repeatedly said. Patience. Fixing the enormous mistakes of the Bush years would take time. There would be no quick fix. Don't look for immediate results, keep gazing into the horizon. Here, I'll show you how, just tilt your head this way, slightly squint your eyes… there, now hold that position for the next three years.

Then, without warning, a pocket of methane gas exploded on an oil rig roughly 50 miles offshore. Suddenly we had a crisis that demanded a real-time solution, not a promise of rewards to be reaped after the next election."

I couldn't say it any better.

Yep. Andrew Cline homered in that at bat. If I may be so bold, allow me to reproduce here the comment I left there:
I'm reminded of Obama's response to a question he got in an interview after he appeared to have wrapped up the the Dem's nomination. It was about his lack of management experience: where was his track record? His response, classic Obama, was that his management of his thus-far successful campaign proved his executive competence.
Indeed, we have a President whose skill set is confined to the world of politics.

All of BHO's experience in community activism -- ahem -- counts for nothing when one sits in the Oval Office and faces real crises.

The linked article is a good find. Thanks.

Bucky Soretoro's crime here is not so much his inaction in solving the problem, but the actions he has taken to ensure that the worse possible result is achieved--for example keeping the skimmers out, not allowing temporary barrier dredging, etc. etc. etc.

Does he really hate this country that much? And why? Most immigrants that have achieved success under our system love it, don't try to destroy it...
