Skip to comments.Presidentís ineptness quite clear after a year
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 hasnt 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 isnt a good politician. Politics is an art, and Obamas basic competence is highly suspect. He lacks the personal radar an effective politician must have the instinct to know when youre on solid ground and when youre tilting at windmills. Obama has spent a year tilting at windmills.
The art of the possible isnt 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.

The idiot is bowing to dogcatchers now.
I did a search on Obama, inept and Kansas City Star. I didn’t see the entry 6 items down. Sheesh.
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.
