Barack Obama: Ill-suited to be nation’s chief executive

In the past ten days, we learned via a variety of news reports just how ill-suited is the incumbent to the job of President of the United States.  At the same time, we’ve seen a legacy media more interested in the supposed imperfections or alleged gaffes of his rival for the White House.

Without a doubt, most of their coverage of Mitt Romney has been negative whereas they practically tell Mr. Obama’s story for him and ignore (or downplay) these stories which present an image of the Democrat at odds with their narrative.

There are (at least) three stories each of which, if it were about a Republican chief executive, which surely have generated a spate of stories:

  1. Obama’s aloofness from the process of governing*:  The reports from Bob Woodward’s forthcoming book, The Price of Politics showing how Obama has not been particularly engaged in negotiations with congressional leaders over matters requiring legislative action.
  2. Obama’s failure to attend over half of daily intelligence briefings since he took office, attending none in the six days leading up to and including September 11, 2012.
  3. His decision to forego meeting with his national security team and congressional leaders in the wake of the attacks on our embassies that day and to jet off instead to a campaign event in Las Vegas.

Now, there are surely other matters reported in the past week which further demonstrate his administration’s incompetence.  (Please feel free to address them in the comments.)

Our friends in the legacy media, however, would rather focus on criticizing Mitt Romney for taking issue with the administration’s initially feckless response to the attacks.

*Perhaps, I should have titled my initial post on the matter: Problem is not GOP obstructionism, but Obama’s aloofness.

  1. Couldn’t agree more …

  2. We’d be hearing a lot more if he was a Republican. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the press in this country is equally incompetent – at least when it comes to doing their alleged jobs.

    I suggest a new term for these “journalists” – let’s call them “lewinskys” from now on. I think that paints an appropriate picture of their relationship to the president.

    Which is odd, because the man has no feck.

  3. Barack Obama refuses to lead because he does not know how; he’s isn’t a leader. He thinks leading is campaign speeches & PR when this is maybe 10% of POTUS job description.

    Obama handed over leadership to then Speaker Nancy Pelosi from 2009-2010; when she lost control of the House because of Obama’s radioactive policies–ObamaCare, Porkulus, Dodd-Frank–Obama handed the mantle of leadership to Valerie Jarrett.

    He’s a man-child who thinks he’s a king or dictator. He’s nothing. And he will learn this on November 6th…

  4. Don’t forget about the revelations in the Jodi Kantor article in the New York Times. That article was read by Rich Karlgaard at Forbes in light of Eastwood’s comments to argue that Obama is a lousy CEO who should be fired.

  5. If we were to suffer a second 9-11 event, would the same sort of 9-11 commission be convened and would Jamie Gorelick, Richard Ben-Venista, Max Cleland, and Lee Hamilton show up to cover for Obama the way they did for Clinton and take off after Romeny for supporting Condi Rice?

    Who would cleanse the National Archives by loading his socks and drawers with damaging documents?

  6. I disagree. He isn’t aloof, he is incompetent, lazy, disrespectful, petulant, and a lier, but aloof implies that he could do better. He is utterly ill equipt for the job he so snidely demands we re-elect him for. His staff and advisors are no better. Apparently most of the democrats are incompetent and lazy and petulant too.

  7. How many times has Obama whined that “…he’s waiting for Congress to bring him legislation“? Governing means getting legislation through Congress…not waiting in it’s pleasure.

    The Bushes certainly had Congressinal leaders to the White House, Camp David or to Bush-43 Crawford ranch for ear-bending and arm-twisting. And Reagan made having key members of Congress to the WH socially and important weekly priority….even if for nothing more than drinks.

  9. And It’s truly sad that Mittens McRomney isn’t doing better against this SCOAMF.

  10. Obama is a narcissist who is more interested in holding the title of president than being the president.

    I have said it before but he reminds me of the popular high school jock who wants to be class president so he can add it to his college application, but then leaves all the work for the other officers. Obama doesn’t seem to know how to lead, and even worse, I don’t think he really wants to. He does seem to feel entitled to having everything his way because he is the president.

    It doesn’t help that the media is so fawning that they won’t even try to cover him objectively much less critically. I have no doubts that if a US ambassador and 3 other American’s were killed that the media would have attacked with all guns blazing. Somehow the media decided Romney was the story-stupid media.

    The media is pissing me off lately-because they refuse to cover the news with any integrity.

  11. “Now, there are surely other matters reported in the past week which further demonstrate his administration’s incompetence.”

    “Citing the most recent round of stimulus, the ratings agency Egan-Jones on Friday gave the U.S. a credit rating of AA-, down from its solid AA rating.”

    Three years ago, we had a AAA rating. Now we’re in the league of France and below the UK(!), Germany, and the Scandinavians. WTF is going on here?! I haven’t seen Story 1 on this in the MSM. It should be front page news.

  22. Never, ever trust a Democrat. It is NOT your parents’ Democrat Party. I’ve seen over the last several years that lazy, irresponsible, immature people as well as those who are angry, bitter, ignorant or out of countrol go Democrat. But those who at least attempt to be mature, responsible adults (we all fail in one or more ways) are far more likely to be Repubicans and/or vote conservative. It is that simplee. Really.
