President Obama’s competence
problem is worse than it looks

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/28/2014 6:34:23 PM

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

It is amazing to me that people still believe what Obama has said and says. The only thing he and his fellow travelers care about is destroying this country and replacing it with a communist state. We´re well on our way.

For those wondering about this coming from, of all places, The Washington Post think of it as a "set up" for hillary. When seen through that prism this article serves their agenda.

Based on his work experience, Øvomit wasn´t qualified to be an assistant manager at a 7-11 when he was elected as president of the United States.

That says far worse thing about how stupid, incompetent and evil the voters of this country are than how stupid, incompetent and evil Øvomit is (and he truly is extremely stupid, incompetent and evil).

C´mon, Chris. Why can´t you say it? It´s not a "competence problem," as in "polls say." It´s a lack of competence, as in everything he touches is made worse.

Obama doesn´t see a competence problem because almost everything is going according to plan.

The IRS attacked the conservative groups in 2012 and then apparently destroyed the evidence leading back to the WH. That´s a win.

We have hundreds of thousands of welfare recipients streaming across the border. That´s a win.

We get to keep all the goodies in Obamacare that people like and we dumped the stuff that was in the law to keep it revenue neutral. That´s a win.

The VA problem was not a win, but veterans are mostly Republicans so he doesn´t care.

If by some miracle we actually do get a republican president in 2016, he/she should immediately release all of Barry´s hidden lies: college transcripts, passport records, etc.. His legacy must be absolutely and convincingly destroyed. Ah, I can stop daydreaming now....this is the republican party, don´t you know...the "we won so it´s time to cave in and reach across the aisle so the NYT and WP may finally like us" republican party.

It has nothing to do with competence, but all to do with his goals, which as others have stated, are to destroy the fabric of our Society as we have known it. His actions are not those of incompetence, but of pure malevolence towards the U>S>, in my opinion.

Obama is evil and brain-damaged but that´s as far as it goes. If he had the least bit of competence, America would be on her knees by now. After six years of holding the most powerful position in the world, even a little child could do the measure of damage that he has done to us. If he has an agenda, it was given to him by the witch who pulls his strings. He is not capable of fooling anybody except the pond scum who voted for him. When he does accomplish some measure of damage, it´s not much more than a child throwing his toy truck against the wall. It could possibly make a dent in the plaster or put a gash on somebody´s head but whatever it does is not planned or executed well. As for his support from democrats, they are as stupid as he is if they think he´s doing a good job or any job at all. For Barack Hussein, it´s just one long day after another playing in the sandbox, lying to his elders and throwing tantrums when he doesn´t get his way.

Our biggest danger is that real, aggressive men like Putin can spot a pansy like obama a mile away and will certainly take advantage of that weakness.

It´s funny how President Obama is always talking about "I" and "me" whenever it makes him look good, but suddenly it´s "they" and "we" when mistakes are made. For instance, for years Obama boasted about how he ended the Iraq war and how he withdrew American troops. "You know I say what I mean and I mean what I say," he boasted on the campaign trail in 2012. "I said I´d end the war in Iraq. I ended it." Then, over the summer, as one Iraqi city after another fell to Islamic State militants, and as critics insisted that Obama´s decision

As the Ebola epidemic has spread through West Africa over the last several months, President Obama has not used legal powers he possesses to help prevent the deadly virus from entering the United States. Federal law gives the president the power to issue a proclamation to seal the borders to any class of aliens who pose a threat to the United States. The law is broad enough that Obama could have issued a proclamation months ago denying entry to any foreign national from the countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea, Nigeria or Liberia. Under the law, such a proclamation could have

On Thursday morning, I received my first well-produced Facebook message mocking those deluded souls, presumably on the right, who are worried about the spread of Ebola. The only thing that surprised me about the message was that I had not seen one sooner. The same people who gave us homophobia and Islamophobia (not to mention racism, sexism, classism, xenophobia, nativism, and climate denial) are about to give us Ebolaphobia. As former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel notoriously said (while plagiarizing Winston Churchill), "You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” The Obama White House will exploit this crisis, if it

Year after year, East Carroll Parish ranks among the top 10 U.S. counties with the highest poverty rates. Time magazine once named the town of Lake Providence the “poorest place in America.” Founded in 1983, Panola Pepper began as a wintertime business to give farm workers income during the three-month gap between the planting and harvest seasons.

Through the fall of 2011, the main question facing the American military in Iraq was what our role would be now that combat operations were over. When President Obama announced the end of our combat mission in August 2010, he acknowledged that we would maintain troops for a while. Now that the deadline was upon us, however, it was clear to me—and many others—that withdrawing all our forces would endanger the fragile stability then barely holding Iraq together.

On September 16, President Obama visited the headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The agency is the lead organization in the federal government´s efforts to prevent the introduction and spread of the Ebola virus into the United States, and Obama used his remarks there to update Americans on those efforts. The chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States are "extremely low," Obama said. U.S. are working with officials in Africa "to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn´t get on a plane for the United States." And then this: In the

The Two Issues That Could

Today marks the one-year anniversary for Obamacare’s health exchanges—which have helped more than 7 million people across the country enroll in health coverage. And while Obamacare’s marketplace is settling in for its second year, serious issues are cropping up that could potentially derail the entire health care law leaving millions without affordable health coverage. The first potential problem deals with funding for the law’s crucial risk corridor program, which protects insurers from major losses. Insurers who agree to sell policies on the new exchanges are compensated for if they incur heavy losses during the first few years of Obamacare’s implementation.

I must say, there’s something about the way accused White House intruder Omar Gonzalez is constantly described in the media that bothers me. I keep hearing him called “Army veteran Omar Gonzalez.” It’s true he’s an Army veteran. So I’m not disputing the fact. But I have a little trouble with the relevance. I know there is a cottage industry out there trying to hype up the threat of returning vets as the real source of domestic terrorism (we all remember the DHS-report controversy). But it’s worth noting that Gonzalez’s alleged motivation was to tell the president the atmosphere is

At least since the early part of the 20th century, aside from oil, the Arab world has produced and exported two products. It has produced essentially no technology, medicine or anything else in the world of science. It has almost no contributions to world literature, art or to intellectual development. According to the most recent United Nations Arab Human Development Reports (2003-2005), written by Arab intellectuals, Greece, with a population of 11 million, annually translates five times more books from English than the entire Arab world, population 370 million.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.
