OBAMA: President isn’t up to demands of the job

President Obama is the CEO of the federal government. Successful new CEOs always streamline their businesses – to be more nimble, efficient and profitable and to improve the productivity of their workforce. Obama does the opposite; he enlarges the government and hires more (but less competent) workers whose purposes are to serve the president rather than the public. This is socialism, which has never worked or served the ordinary citizens (only the elite).

The results are dire. The job is too large and complicated for this president. He recently used his primary skill (teleprompter rhetoric) in an hour-long, boring foreign affairs speech to divert attention from his failing economic domestic policies and the serious scandals (IRS intimidation of opponents; Benghazi murders cover-up; First Amendment infringements of legitimate news reporters; and other lies, misrepresentations and thuggery) of this administration.

Where were all the numerous czars and his federal regulators hired to protect him? Were they too consumed in promoting his socialistic policies to warn him of the indiscretions of his surrogates? Even those depending on the “array of talking points” are beginning to have grave doubts about his steady stream of misrepresentations and cover-ups.
