President Obama’s competence
problem is worse than it looks

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

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.

President Bush was up early EVERY day, starting with security briefings.

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.

White House intruder was tackled

The man who jumped over the White House fence and sprinted through the main floor of the mansion could have gotten even farther had it not been for an off-duty Secret Service agent who was coincidentally in the house and leaving for the night. The agent who finally tackled Omar Gonzalez had been serving on the security detail for President Obama’s daughters and had just seen the family depart via helicopter minutes earlier. He happened to be walking through the house when chaos broke out and the intruder dashed through the main foyer, according to two people familiar with the incident. Gonzalez,

We blew it on ISIS — but at least we’re cleaning up the world’s messes. President Obama admitted in an interview Sunday that the U.S. “underestimated” the Islamic State — but then he abandoned his trademark cool diplomacy to take a shot at other supposed superpowers for failing to get going when the going gets tough. “When trouble comes up anywhere in the world, they don’t call Beijing. They don’t call Moscow. They call us,” Obama said on “60 Minutes.” “That’s how we roll,” the President added. The exchange with CBS correspondent Steve Kroft came after Obama admitted that the

Many of you may be confused by the alternate labels used for the Islamists rampaging through Iraq and Syria. Some call them ISIL, some call them ISIS, and some call them Islamic State. Right now, they are calling themselves the Islamic State, after previously using the terms ISIS or ISIL. Now, I don’t really care what they want to be called. I stand with Winston Churchill on this, who was famous for mispronouncing words in the languages of his antagonists, including, of course, France. He’d probably call them “ISIS” and pronounce it “Asses.” But I do care what our president calls them. Because

Castelluccio, a painter and expert in Baroque European art, found the work at a Frankfurt dealer, but no one knew who the artist was. It was mistakenly marked as an “18th-century Italian holy painting of Saint Sebastian,” the actor told us. “They had no idea who painted this.” After winning the work at auction, he had it authenticated

After displaying reluctance to join an international coalition against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists, Turkey is now signaling its readiness to do so, but first it wants a no-fly zone over Syrian airspace and a buffer zone on the Syrian side of the Syria-Turkey border – neither of which are priorities for the U.S. Defense Department. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan returned from high-level meetings at and on the sidelines of the United Nations in New York and told reporters in Ankara Friday that his government will now address what role Turkey will play in the campaign against ISIS

Ferguson Demands High

WASHINGTON — Bureaucrats in Ferguson, Missouri, responding to requests under the state´s Sunshine Act to turn over government files about the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, are charging nearly 10 times the cost of some of their own employees´ salaries before they will agree to release any records. The move discourages journalists and civil rights groups from investigating the shooting and its aftermath. The city has demanded high fees to produce copies of records that, under Missouri law, it could give away free if it determined the material was in the public´s interest to see. Instead, in some cases, the city

Liberal base sours on Obama

President Obama´s poll numbers are plummeting in deep-blue states such as New York and California, with core liberal supporters who have stuck with him through thick and thin beginning to sour on his leadership. Obama’s decisions to punt on immigration reform, defend government surveillance and attack fighters in the Middle East have all alienated parts of the coalition that elected him twice to the White House. The growing dissatisfaction on the left could limit Obama´s ability to help Democrats in the midterm elections, and could threaten his political legacy if — as happened with George W.

Bill Clinton’s claim that 100,000 cops

During Clinton’s presidency, his 1994 proposal to have the federal government pay for 100,000 additional police officers was one of his signature talking points—and certainly helped neutralize GOP attacks about Democrats being weak on crime. Meanwhile, there’s no doubt that the crime rate went down dramatically during his presidency. But does one thing have much to do with the other? The Facts We will leave aside the debate about whether there were actually 100,000 additional police officers hired under the nearly $10 billion in grants provided by the Community Oriented Police Services program between 1994 and 2000. That question has never quite been

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience.

O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016.

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
