Most of the liberal crowd will stick to Obama’s coattails regardless of how much he screws up this once great country. We all know the local ones from the early days of the AZ Central blogs so they can be dismissed as non-entities. As Christ said “Forgive them Father; they know not what they do” or something like that.
Now, the big boys with well known names are coming down hard on the big “O”. One guy in particular caught my eye this week with his jaw dropping comments. Washington Post writer Richard Cohen’s column is carried in the Arizona Republic and this week’s entry was a doozey.
In a column entitled “A Question of Competence” Cohen compares Obama to the worst team in the history of baseball; the 1962 New York Mets. Casey Stengel, the old guy who managed the New York Yankees to greatness in the 1950’s, was the unfortunate manager of the hapless Mets.
Cohen mentions that Casey once asked his team: "Can't anybody here play this game?" He goes on to say “That phrase kept coming at me recently as I watched the impressively inept performance of the Obama administration in both foreign and domestic policy. On a given day, this administration makes the '62 Mets look good.” Whoa! Cohen goes on with a carefully crafted dialogue breaking down the errors of the Obama administration. Read the whole column here.
Cohen is a serious guy among other serious guys from the left and right who now see the light; especially after the debacle that is the Affordable Care Act. Most of them looked the other way concerning the IRS snafu, Benghazi, Syria, Fast and Furious, NSA, etc. But, the health care screwups have hit home for many and are not being overlooked.
At the same time the entertainment business has been having a field day with items like the Jon Stewart interview with Kathleen Sebelius, the hilarious “Saturday Night Live” skit and the jabs from the late night guys.
Charisma can only take you so far if you are basically an inept individual. Obama did a great con job on many susceptible people by promising the world and redistributing the wealth of the makers to the takers. As time has gone by, more people are now realizing that he is basically an empty suit. One would think that the president would know the definition of “shovel ready jobs” or know that the Marine Corps is not the Marine “Corpse.” Knowing such elementary terminology should be second nature to someone in his position.
