CNN: Former WH Official Acknowledges Obama's 'Maybe' Not Good at Governing
The Weekly Standard ^ | 1/6/2014 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 01/06/2014 6:40:41 AM PST by Beave Meister

CNN report Peter Hamby reports on a recent conversation he had with a former White House official: "I talked to a former Obama White House person, just before Christmas, when Obama was sort of adrift, figuring out what to do, his poll numbers were pretty low. And he said, 'Look, the president needs to find an issue to campaign on. This is what he's good at. He's really good at campaigning. Maybe not governing,' according to this Democrat," Hamby said this morning on CNN.

Yes, but he’s so incredibly capable at everything else he’s ever tried.

Ah yes but he’s starting up his campaign now. Sure he can’t run again but he has to do the only thing he does well. Perhaps the lo-infos and the perpetually unemployed will fall for it again.

This is why “Organizing For Action” was formed. I don’t think any other president has ever kept his campaign organization intact after winning a second term, let alone expand it. The only thing this guy can do effectively is campaign.

Yup, it’s time to do something about income inequality, that’s for sure.

Obama has no interest in being President, he just wants to be a celebrity.

Did the former WH official bother to point out ANYTHING the ignorant POS dumba$$ is good at, other than inane blathering and spending other people’s money?

“Obama has no interest in being President, he just wants to be a celebrity.”

I partially agree, but IMHO his grandiosity goes well beyond being a celebrity. I think he truly believes that he is the one who will reshape America into a socialist nation, and right all wrongs. When he said ‘we will look back at this as the moment when the oceans stopped rising’ (or whatever the quote was) he appears to really have believed that. That's a boatload of grandiosity.

Someone’s aluminum foil hat flew off? All he (and his boyfriend, Reggie Love) and his large wife are good for is milking the taxpayers of tons and tons of tax dollars.

Understatement of all cosmic time. Which begs the question.. Other than nefarious, nihilistic undertakings, what exactly is he good at?

If this clown had to campaign being actually honest, he would fail miserably.

Obama saying that because he had been elected that the “oceans will stop rising” is probably the dumbest thing I have ever heard anyone say. Then when his supporters believed it and cheered him.......... I knew our country was spiraling down the drain.

Obama just does what President Jarrett tells him to do.

“Obama has no interest in being President, he just wants to be a celebrity.”

Obama is a pure ideologue with no conception of governing.

When a man already in power “campaigns”, he has become a demagogue.

No cigar.

Simple answer - Campaign is over (probably the only thing he’s good at, with 100% media running interference of course). Now get to work.

(Or not, as everything he touches turns to ash)

It would have been helpful for the American voters to have this information before either of the last two elections.
