As many of you have probably noticed, I have greatly scaled back on the amount of writing I do these days. But I do continue to read political commentary from a variety of sources. Some sources are somewhat superficial and even polarizing with over-the-top rhetoric, both left and right. Others are more thoughtful in bringing some insight to the reader. The Morning Bell is a good example of that insightful and factual honesty. It is published by The Heritage Foundation and is featured daily on their political news blog called The Foundry.
This morning's piece written by Diane Katz met my expectations. It's titled President Obama's Regulatory Dust-Up. After reading this article, you may want to question the conventional wisdom that asserts that our current POTUS is a well informed leader. You may wish to question whether he is a leader at all, based upon his response to a question posed from an Illinois farmer during a stop on Obama's bus tour. The ignorance of the president's response, sans teleprompter, speaks volumes and supports a contention I have had for quite some time. Obama is really not that bright or capable. He has simply been enabled by progressive forces working behind the scenes all these years as he ascended to the presidency with very few credentials; no private sector experience, no military experience and only scant political experience. Perhaps that's why so much about his college, his early employment, his teaching career and his practice of law has been obfuscated by the liberal political machine.
The ugly truth is that after two and a half years this president has been a day late and dollar short on virtually every urgent issue and crisis, from the Gulf oil spill to the Middle East uprising to our staggering unemployment rate to Iran's nuclear program to the Strategic Arms Treaty with the Russians to the $14 T national debt..... well, the list is almost endless.
So I ask you to read this. Then decide for yourself, regardless of your political leanings, whether Obama is as smart as his political machine would have us believe. Then ask yourself honestly if we can do better in 2012. Can we really afford Col. Klink for another four years?
After all, it's your country and your president.
