View Full Version : A question of competence?

Just consider some of the things that have happened in the last year.

Health Care Reform has been in the works for almost a year, and even the Democrats can't agree on what should and should not be included. Ultimately, I doubt it will look anything like what Obama had originally planned.

After almost a year, the administration finally has a plan for Afghanistan. We will increase forces to defeat the taliban, which can be accomplished in 18 months, unless it can't, in which case, we will either continue the effort, or we will go ahead and give up. It's been said that the quickest way to end a war is to lose. Is that the plan?

Homeland Security and the military can't seem to function well enough to identify a muslim terrorist in the Army before he can go on a killing rampage on one of our military bases.

The Secret Service can't even maintain a guest list for a state dinner without someone sneaking in and actually coming face to face with the President.

In spite of his best personal efforts, Obama couldn't convince a bunch of old farts to hold their games in Chicago.

The highest level government appointees can't even be vetted well enough to find out if they actually pay their taxes.

Votes for their own bills need to be bought in the Senate in order to get enough support to continue debate.

Even if you don't hold Obama responsible for any of this, it sure seems he has failed to surround himself with a competent staff.
