For all of the talk about "hope" and "change" and both were powerful slogans for Obama in 2008 the core of Obama's appeal to many independents and even some Republicans was the idea that he would restore competence back to the White House after President George W. Bush's eight years, years defined by mistaken intelligence about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and a mishandling of the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast. Obama openly embraced the idea that he was the anti-Bush on nothing much more than his commitment to putting the best people in the right places within his administration. (Remember the whole "Team of Rivals" thing?)
As conservative columnist Jeff Jacoby writes in the Boston Globe: "Running to succeed the deeply polarizing George W. Bush, Obama held himself out not just as a leader who would never 'pit red America against blue America,' but as a natural-born manager whose hallmark was smarts and competence."
Which is what makes the series of problems within his administration of late all the more politically problematic for Democrats trying to hold onto their Senate majority and narrow their House minority this November. The current scandal engulfing the VA is the latest example of competence questions surrounding this White House, but they include everything from the rollout of HealthCare.gov to the targeting of tea party groups by a Cincinnati IRS office. While none of these problems are easily tied directly to a decision Obama made (or didn't make), they have all eroded the public's faith that he knows what he's doing.

Americans doubted from the start.
Democrats were the fools who believed.
he is not our boss
They “doubt” him being a good boss but they all still love the guy more than their “smart” phone and would vote for him a third time if they could.
“Americans are starting to doubt President Obama is a good boss”
Who did the post interview? The man that was born yesterday?
BINGO...an OBVIOUS ENEMY OF STATE FROM DAY ONE.......
I started to doubt he was “a good boss” in 2007, when he thought he might run. At some point, I “started to doubt” he has America’s best interest at heart. That’s long since passed. Today I am “starting to doubt” that he is even human.
Maybe the reality TV shows are just now going into repeats.
I have come to believe that he is evil. The video of blowing a kiss at Carney shows a personality of someone I would not like to meet, let alone know or put my faith in.
There is something profoundly not right with him.
Well, gee, now that I think about it a bit, he does rather $uck, doesn’t he?
I say this un-sarcastically, “Really”?
Incompetence is Obama’s stock alibi.
If the Current Regime has lost the unquestioning support of the Washington (Com)Post, then they are on very shaky ground indeed.
LBJ could see the beginning of the end when he lost Walter Cronkite, after the reverses in Viet Nam.
There is no faster avalanche in the world than the collapse of a political favorite in the eyes of the former supporters.
Incompetence knows no color.
A good boss??? I doubt that Obama is the Antichrist, but only because the druggie is neither as intelligent nor as energetic as Satan himself will be. I am, however, starting to appreciate just how destructive pure evil can be, and I am far more afraid of the coming tribulation than I ever was before I saw how easily Obama could fool so many people.
The question is boss for who?
He’s sure gone out of his way to make sure Islamic conquest continues unabated.
I do not accept the premise of George W. Bush’s “mistakes.” I don’t agree with him, or anybody else, on everything, but he was a fine president. The media was the only entity who “polarized” people’s views of W. At least he had the best in mind for the country, unlike the America-hater we have now.

It took you FIVE EFFIN YRS to figure that out?
Good gawd people are stupid
