As an interested observer of things politic, I've noticed that some presidents start very slowly and continue their ineptness to the bitter end (Carter). Other slow-starters learn to game the system, using their opponents ideas then take all the credit (Clinton).
Others start fast, but lose effective focus at the end but are looked upon with admiration shortly after serving (both Bushes, Harry Truman). Two in the last century started fast with good ideas in the beginning and ended with a flare (Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower).
Either they learn from experience or come in with good instincts.
President Barack Hussein Obama has had the worst presidential start of anyone I can think of in American history. As brilliant and timely as his campaign was, effective governing seems to be something he considers beneath him.
Given the choice of hashing out a HC plan of his own, he delegated that to Pelosi and Reid. He chose to fly off in the false safety of AF1 to all parts of the world for nefarious and unproductive activities.
Every time he gave a speech peddling HC the polls dropped. He couldn't explain it because he didn't know what was in it. The American people caught on.
"America's chickens--have come home to roost!"Reverend Jeremiah Wright
I think Wright was predicting the election of his 20 year religious minion, Barack Obama, to the presidency. Most of America is no longer saying "G-d bless Obama." They're screaming, "G-d damn Obama and his little Dems too!"
Below are some examples.
Stinky People Instincts:
Joe Biden - If only his gaffs could be used to lower the deficit.
Van Jones - A green Communist who would turn over our government before you could utter Anita Tse Dunn.
John Holdren - If sterilant in water won't do the trick, then we could force abortions upon women.
Rahm Emanuel - Proudly referring to fellow Dems as f@%(*ing retards.
Cass Susstein - Watch out for the poodle you shouted at. Susstein will find him a lawyer.
Mark Lloyd - Believes we should base our government on the fine leadership Venezuela. Viva Hugo!
Eric Holder - On a scale of 1 to 10 he's a minus 1,000 as an AG. Is this guy working for us or our enemies?
Valerie Jarrett-She helped Obama line up the above miscreants.
Stinky Legislative Instincts:
Obamacare and Crap and Tax - dead. Only Republicans can pull these economy destroyers out of the ashes.
Global Warming - Yeah I know. This record cold winter is really Global Warming. We're all just idiots!
Stimulus - Lost jobs while creating a half trillion dollar slush fund via unspent stimulus payoffs for future legislative buy-offs like the Louisiana Purchase and the Cornhusker earmark.
Budget - Totally destroys the US economy in a sea of debt.
Giving business a $5,000 job credit when demand is the problem and tax cutting would solve it.
Stinky National Security Instincts:
Closing Gitmo - Ain't happening.
Biden - Now taking personal credit for Iraq's success. Who knew?
Mirandizing caught terrorists-Gold engraved invitations to go out on Tuesday to al-Qaeda.
The apology tour - He might as well have taped a "Kick the USA!" sign to his back.
Propping up dictators while discouraging real revolutions.
Then add in the outright lies and deceptions on a scale Bubba never imagined.
Is it any wonder the Washington Post claims that two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied or angry at the government?
If Obama wanted input from Republicans he would have involved them from the get-go
If I were a Republican Congressman asked by the President to bail him out on Obamacare, I'd demand he pile the 3,800 pages of bills and burn them on the WH lawn as a prerequisite. Then I'd set out a lot of other ground rules so the President and the Dems could never screw the American people again.
Right now the only ones in the octagon cage are the President, the Dems and Progressives. They have no choice but to brutalize each other to survive November's duels.
Republicans should kick back with a box of popcorn (salted and buttered) and their favorite adult beverage while cheering on the lefties as they demolish each other.
You'll know we won if you see the Progressives crawl back into their holes for another century.
I'm so confident Obama couldn't pull a Clinton by dealing with his real enemies, conservatives, I'd take my 5'6", 61 year-old bones and challenge him to a game of one-on-one.
How tough could he be?
Everyone knows he's incapable of going to his right.
