Skip to comments.Charlie Cook: Obama Team Looking Incompetent
Posted on 02/06/2009 8:59:47 PM PST by MAD-AS-HELL
Writing in the National Journal Magazine, political analyst Charlie Cook opines that President Barack Obama had better start playing his own game, or his administration is going to get labeled incompetent.
Cook, who edits the respected "Cook Political Report," writes that, with such stains on the record as Sen. Tom Daschles withdrawal as Health and Human Services secretary nominee, embarrassing disclosures about Treasury nominee Timothy Geithners taxes, and a stimulus package that has run up against a wall of criticism, President Obama may be setting himself up for the shortest honeymoon in presidential history.

Barack Obama will be the guy to make Jimmy Carter look like a political genius!
Yeah, most of FR participants saw this coming.
Love the headline — LOOKING Incompetent. Think it is safe to say they ARE Incompetent. Less then a month in office and I am sick and tired of the wimps!
Well, that's appropriate. They are. We knew that.
Everybody keeps forgetting old Bill “Pay-Fo-Play” Richardson.
As my cousin by marriage says (he always knows everything)---"I knew that!"
What the hell did you expect?????
Look at EVERY Liberal Democrat/Socialist run city or state - and MOST especially if the leadership is black - and tell me what you see...
Incompetence, Corruption, Degradation, Loss of Industry and Jobs, Deterioration of Infrastructure, Increase in Crime, Drugs, Prostitution and dependency on welfare.;..
Oh - and while we're at it - LOOK at the ENTIRETY of the Democrat Black Congressional Caucus and tell me if you see an honest, competent, accomplished, ethical, executive leader amongst the entire collection of slugs.
Look at the 20 years Obama spent as “Community Organizer” in Chicago - and tell me how much good he did for the down and outers.... A few black “insiders” like Michelle got do nothing high paying jobs and the rest were left worse off. Obama is worse than Incompetent -- he's a liar and an unaccomplished executive at any endeavor except playing the race card and mouthing bullshit to get elected.
Oh, and one more thing -- the Dalai Bama STILL hasn't proved that he was born in the United States, and until he does he's a lying Kenyan as far as I'm concerned...
Obama and his team are incompetent. His resume as a legislator is as thin as onion skin and it is clear that he doesn’t have a clue. Engaging Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity shows that he has no comprehension of how that diminishes public perception his power.
I saw one of his apologists on Fox tonight. She was pressed about Obama’s so called stimulus package and its tons of pork. Her response was typical of a brainwashed leftist.
First she refused to respond to questions and babled on about Bush. Van Susteren doggedly repeated her specific question to the woman. I have done this to lefties enough to recognize that they can not respond to specific questions about their brainwashed blather.
The eyes reflect growing panic, shifting and blinking. They disintegrate before your eyes if you simply continue to ask for a response to a specific question.
It is both amusing and frightening to observe. It’s funny because they don’t have any answers, just dogmatic talking points. Scary because there are enough of them to have put this incompetent Marxist in the most powerful office in the world.
Very clear insight of the our empty leader.
If I’m not mistaken, President George W. Bush had the shortest Honeymoon in Presidential history.
The Honeymoon was over two months BEFORE he took the oath.
re: The Honeymoon was over two months BEFORE he took the oath
It was over at noon EST on election day.
At least Jimmy Carter ran a state!!!! I can’t believe I just said that.
For all the Billions that New Orleans got over the 30 years to build a respectable dyke's system most of it was pocketed by corrupt democrat politicians and crooked contracted using (of course) democrat union goons.
Howbeit after the hurricane hit that state the MSM went into full gear and the next thing you hear (wait for it) is "IT's BUSH FAULT!!"
Wasn’t Charlie Cook one of the pollsters singing Hussein’s praises pre-election???
Obama has world-class teleprompter skills. Is anything else required?
No, he just said that O was going to win. He did, quite handily. He also said that he would get a job bagging groceries if O did not win. I can assure you that he never had any intention of bagging groceries. He just knew that the election was over. People drank the kool aid on this one and now we will all pay the price.
thanks for the clarification! :)
