I don't know if we sufficiently understand how weird and strange, how historically unparalleled, this presidency has become. We've got a sitting president who was just judged in a major poll to be the worst since World War II. The worst president in 70 years! Quinnipiac University's respondents also said, by 54% to 44%, that the Obama administration is not competent to run the government. A Zogby Analytics survey asked if respondents are proud or ashamed of the president. Those under 50 were proud, while those over 50, who have of course the longest experienced sense of American history, were ashamed. We all know the reasons behind the numbers. The scandals that suggest poor stewardship and, in the case of the IRS, destructive political mischief. The president's signature legislation, which popularly bears his name and contains within it the heart of his political meaning, continues to wreak havoc in marketplaces and to be unpopular with the public. He is incapable of working with Congress, the worst at this crucial aspect of the job since Jimmy Carter, though Mr. Carter at least could work with the Mideast and produced the Camp David Accords. Mr. Obama has no regard for Republicans and doesn't like to be with Democrats. Internationally, small states that have traditionally been the locus of trouble (the Mideast) are producing more of it, while large states that have been more stable in their actions (Russia, China) are newly, starkly aggressive. That's a long way of saying nothing's working. Which I'm sure you've noticed.

@Peggy Noonan: "He was once a serious man"! I can only hope that you do not believe that! Many of us smelled his bs. 10 miles away when he was appearing on the scene.
This federal reserve stooge was 'selected' not elected; massive voter fraud kept him in the white house.
A good leader is known by the way he carries himself - sticking his chin into the air; lying about anything and everything, 'punish' his perceived enemies and breaking those laws required to be upheld - does not a good leader make.
As Michael Barone stated during Obama's first term - he runs a gangster government.
Mrs. Noonan - his 'scandals' are considered criminal activity at a minimum and treason at its maximum - such as secretly recruiting, training, arming and paying ISIS/ISIL or overthrowing governments on a whim such as Egypt and Libya.
He was 'selected' to transform this country; he couldn't deliver and is now demoted to partying, traveling etc.. - while his shadow government attempts to finish the "job".
Ok, find the article here:
Most of us can’t read this article because of the WSJ paywall. Could you please “quote” a little more of it for us?
You should be able to find the whole article here. I was not allowed to post the whole article.
He needs to get out more often, skip golf, go to a play. /S
More seriously, I don't think he's that passive... he's got what he wants, and he's letting Valerie Jarrett get what she wants.
Mischief? Lois Lerner didn't plead the 5th because of mischief. It's destructuve criminal felony.
Peggy Noonan pimped for the Kenyan, once. Openly, proudly, aggressively.
I have never forgiven her for that. Consequently I don’t read her drivel anymore.
Copyright restrictions apply down thread as well. Thank you.
” I dont read her drivel anymore.’
Why would anyone above the level of idiot want to read what she has to say.
You, me and everyone else above the level of idiot knew the jug eared clown wasn’t fit to be president in 2007, but not Peggy.
It’s taken Peggy 7 years to figure out what we knew 7 years ago, and we are supposed to pay attention to what she says?
I don’t think so.
