Administration incompetent

  • Follow Letters

Leadership forums teach that 40 percent of leaders who move into higher positions will fail within 18 months. Noted educator Laurence Peter termed it rising to a “position of incompetence.” As confirmed in myriad studies, race, gender and origin play no part in the failure rate among similarly educated people. Individuals sometimes find themselves in positions for which their blend of personal attributes makes them incompetent.

In the portion of the civilian world ruled by profit motive (i.e., not controlled by corrupt, self-perpetuating unions), positional incompetents are weeded out. However, as evidenced by Veterans Administration administrators, governmental incompetence seemingly can avoid the sunlight interminably.

Nowhere is this phenomenon more evident than in the Obama administration.

Here, incompetence not only is tolerated but it is defended vociferously by liberals, political hacks and delusional bigots who read swill by other delusional bigots and spout it as evidence of racial prejudice against this president.

By any objective and subjective measurement, this president is incompetent. Case in point: In one recent day, in an amateurish explanation for an enormous failure, he branded a country with hundreds of nuclear weapons a “regional power.” The Secret Service, formerly proud and effective under previous presidents, announced three agents were sent home for drunkenness.

Reporters Without Borders has rated the United States, under the Obama administration, a dismal 46th in the world in terms of press freedom. This president announced we would accept hundreds of pounds of plutonium, after stopping the Yucca Mountain storage facility and only days after proposing to “cold standby” the mixed-oxide processing plant at Savannah River Site. And security analysts have labeled Syria as the most troubling al-Qaida location, after this president failed to engage the original rebel group.

Like an acidic fog, incompetence spreads to infect everything it touches – and this administration touches a lot.

An excellent letter which lays out just some of the examples...

An excellent letter which lays out just some of the examples of the incompetence of Obama's leadership.

The incompetence of Obama and his administration is caused mainly by a number of things.

First, he is totally unqualified by background and experience for the job of the most powerful position in the world. He was not elected based on either of these two attributes. He was elected on white guilt and the desire for people to "show I'm not a racist." Some voted for him because they thought it was time for a black president just as a recent survey showed that many people would vote for Hillary Clinton because "it's time we had a female president."

Obama is the biggest ideologue we have ever had in the White House and his appointments and the people with whom he appoints and surrounds himself are cut from the same cloth.

His strongest and most trusted adviser, and one of the few who can call him "Barack", is Valerie Jarrett--a woman of strong leftist credentials and a family history of communism. She is THE power behind Obama. She introduced him to Moochelle and introduced him into the power and black power circles of Chicago politics.

Jarrett's family associations with communism are interesting to say the least. Her grandfather, Robert Taylor, was involved in Communist USA front organizations in Illinois along with Frank Marshall Davis who in the 70's would become Obama's mentor. Davis moved from Chicago to Hawaii to become involved with the communist movement there. Jarrett's father in law, Vernon Jarrett, was also involved with Communist front organizations along with Taylor and Davis.

So, some of Obama's failings are caused by incompetence, inexperience, and unfitness for the job; however, some of what has happened is not looked upon as failures. They are looked upon by the Marxists/leftists/fascists/progressives/statists/ progressives/liberals, or whatever label one attaches to them, as successes in taking down away from and destroying America from its Founding Principles.

From an early age the desire of Obama has been to take America down from its perch of the guiding light of liberty and make it "equal" to other countries because it was an illegitimate country in his, his family's, and his mentor's eyes.

All very true. However,

All very true. However, "Obama" can only happen in a country where half of the voters are incompetent citizens. And THAT is the real problem.

truth is that which conforms to reality

independent of human perception
and O has filled his government with those
raised in the zoo of university and government bureaucracy
where life is so easy that perceptions can be reality
which is a world of madness
it even inhibits their ability to read
because words mean what they perceive words to mean
and having "hundreds of nuclear weapons" can offend equally
as not giving marriage rights to homosexuals
plutonium can be the same thing as sugar, just another import
and their education department can improve every single year
(they've got "statistics" to prove it, and people dumb enough to believe those statistics!) and go through vigorous activity while continuing with their slow decline, yet we get
THREE SCHOOLS IN RICHMOND COUNTY
HAD ZERO STUDENTS PASS THE AP EXAMS LAST YEAR
and people who actually defend that
an excellent letter...

There's another weakness in Obama....

There's another weakness in Obama and that is his ignorance of history. He appears to have no concept of Russia's historical ambitions in the Crimea going all he way back to Catherine the Great and it's expansion during the Russian Revolution.

More and more this man sees the world as he wants it to be, as he wishes it had been rather than how it is and how it was.

No progressive

No progressive counterpoint-Oh I know-it's Bush's fault. He isn't incompetent but is following his agenda and ideological goals. That "fundamental change" was this-people should have inquired cause-other than the population of voters he is buying with freebies-most wouldn't like it.

I for one am not surprised. This is what happens when you elected a racist, Marxist, America hating community organizer for president.

You know, Dee Stafford's

You know, Dee Stafford's point of view is very interesting.

If somebody's family members were Communists, does that make the rest of their family Communists?

The answer is a resounding NO.

Do we blame people for what their grandfathers and father in laws do?

That sounds suspiciously what black people do about blaming white people for slavery.

I have no idea what political parties my grandparents belonged to. And no matter what they believed, it has absolutely nothing to do with me.

That's like saying if your grandfather was a bank robber, you think it's ok to rob banks.

The truth is that many people in the United States have relatives that were Communists. It was very popular in the 20's and 30's.

But that has nothing to do with how people think today.

Why do people think it's ok to smear people with no basis in fact?

Obama believes that the USA became rich by stealing from poor countries mainly poor countries of color.

corgimom, actually communism was VERY popular in 50s, 60s & 70s especially among the hippies and blacks. The communists recruited young dumb white girls, mostly hippies, in the 60s and 70s to seduce black men into joining the communist party. That is most likely how Obama's parents met. Obama's father was a communist and hated the British and mostly likely most white men. Obama's 'Dream from his Father' is very easy to figure out if a person uses a little intelligence.

Cogi, Your point is well taken and I understand there....

Cogi, Your point is well taken and I understand there is a danger in making a hasty generalization of someone solely from their ancestors. That being said, Jarrett's ideological leanings and actions have shown that it appears she did take some of her leftist positions from her family.

I do think it's impossible for her to have her Marxist philosophy without having been influenced by both her grandfather and father in law. My guess would be the father in law had a greater influence.

My parents and grandparents were conservative and that had a marked influence on my having the correct political outlook on America as the greatest country in history and where one is limited mainly by their abilities and desires.

dee, I agree 100%. Obama's grandparents and parents were communist, his mentor for 8 years, 10 to 18, was an America hating, racist, communist. His preacher and mentor for 20 yrs, he never made an important decision with consulting him, was the America hating racist Rev. Wright.
