Obama's failures are due to one consistent issue. The man is completely devoid of any executive leadership ability. We elected a backbencher senator to do the job of a president. This guy had never been in charge of anything.

The healthcare summit is a perfect example. It accomplished nothing because Obama put nothing on the table to work with. One facet of leadership is being able to convince people to do things they don't want to do, and making them believe they want to do it.

Obama doesn't know how to do that and doesn't know that ability is important to being successful in his job.

He’s also just a horrible, horrible politician. By that I mean, he has absolutely zero political skills or instincts. He just has no grip on how politics gets done, either on the Hill or on Main Street. He is tone-deaf to a profound, stunning degree. He is, as the mayor of Las Vegas said, a “slow learner.” He has no sense of political strategy, of the zigs and zags that must go into a political act. He is blind to the meaning and function of the moves of his political opponents, including in his own party. He has no internal political context for understanding and processing the political chatter that is the political zeitgeist.

Shall I go on?
