Presidentís ineptness quite clear after a year
The Kansas City StaR ^ | 01/30/10 | E. THOMAS McCLANAHAN

Posted on 02/01/2010 9:20:58 AM PST by crosshairs

What happened to the bright dreams, the hope and change? A year ago, fate handed President Obama one of the most tantalizing political opportunities in history.

His party enjoyed a blowout election. The Republicans were leaderless and devoid of ideas. The Democrats had hefty majorities in both houses of Congress. Obama had stratospheric approval ratings and the support of a nation profoundly fearful of the future.

And then he threw it all away. He outsourced chunks of his job to a left-wing congressional leadership that has learned nothing and forgotten nothing for the past 35 years.

What came next was one appalling legislative blob after another: the stimulus package that hasn’t stimulated, the cap-and-trade monster, the health care power-grab.

When Obama assumed office, he was still something of an enigma. Many asked: Who is this guy?

Well, now we know a lot more. The bottom line: He isn’t a good politician. Politics is an art, and Obama’s basic competence is highly suspect. He lacks the personal radar an effective politician must have — the instinct to know when you’re on solid ground and when you’re tilting at windmills. Obama has spent a year tilting at windmills.

The “art of the possible” isn’t static. With steady accomplishments, an effective leader can expand the zone of the possible. A winner draws new adherents, builds coalitions, acquires new strength for the next challenge.

For a weak leader, the opposite applies: His credibility shrinks, and so do the ranks of his followers. His ability to accomplish anything becomes doubtful.

On it’s face, it appears Barama was just too greedy, trying to push too far, too fast. The reality is that he was merely acting on orders from his coalition of influencers and backers like Soros, Axelrod, China, and who knows who else.

The President is NOT INEPT..
He just lies verbally and pursues another hidden agenda..
An agenda that he is very EPT AT..

The only ones that thinks he is inept are the ones that believe his lies..
He is very efficient at what he is DOING.. not trying to do.. BUT doing..

Its "the pundits" that are INEPT... i.e. PollyAnnas..
