More than a bad day: Worries grow that Barack Obama & Co. have a competence problem
Daily News ^ | 3-15-09 | Micahel Goodwin

Not long ago, after a string of especially bad days for the Obama administration, a veteran Democratic pol approached me with a pained look on his face and asked, "Do you think they know what they're doing?"

The question caught me off guard because the man is a well-known Obama supporter. As we talked, I quickly realized his asking suggested his own considerable doubts.

These people believed their own bullsh*t even as they shoveled it. They knew the man had zero relevant experience but they wanted badly to believe their own fantasies. There were plenty of people who pointed these things out but they were marginalized. I find it hard to believe that these people are, deep down, surprised.

They know what they’re doing. It’s just too bad you idiots who voted and supported him didn’t know or maybe didn’t care about.what he intended to do to this country.

He should have told his friend not to worry. How could a 47 year old whose experience and qualifications consist of teaching Saul Alinsky to leftist street protesters,voting present in the Illinois state legislator and getting divorce records unsealed possibly not be qualified for the Job of President of the United States.

["Do you think they know what they're doing?"]

Nothing quite so sad as the face of a "true believer" who has awakened to their naivete.

he [Obama] told business leaders, "I don't like the idea of spending more government money, nor am I interested in expanding government's role."

Jeez... Obama is even not a sane "one".

This is going to be the biggest mess yet in the endless series of Democrat screwups requiring Republican repair.

“They know what they’re doing.”

Absolutely. All very clear from O’s record, even though they’ve tried to obfuscate it, or worse. If you read his limited writings, listen to the recorded speeches, review the history if his associations, the only surprise is how many so called intelligent voters have swallowed the BS hook line and sinker. What we’re witnessing is a very clever, cunning, and deceitful propaganda campaign.

I just checked the Constitution. No mention of competence. I suppose that back in the day it was assumed.

"But already feelings of doubt are rising again. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid were never held in high regard, so doubts about their motives and abilities are not surprising."
We really need to nationalize the house election of 2010 against Pelosi. Every member should have to defend or reject her control of the house and the nation's purse.
