It's Not So Much Fun Now
We now have a by-stander in the White House! The latest word from the White House on the debt and economy concerning the Super Committee is sad. The President recently said he was pretty sure the committee wasn't going to get anything done so he didn't get involved. Oh great, the President, the man who was going to lead the country, the man who got enough people to believe he knew enough to run the country, (at least that is what someone wanted you to believe), is taking a pass when it comes to issues he feels are too hard.
A good thing or a bad thing? Well, if you actually expected the President to help the country it could be a bad thing. A good thing if you look at the President's record to this point in trying to "help" the country. One might say, we would all be better off if the President had just stood by and done nothing. Sort of like voting present as he did many, many times while in the senate.
I personally believe there were many reasons Obama was elected President, few of those reasons had much to do about his ability to lead. A number of voters figure, if a guy has gotten as far as actually running for President he has the knowledge to become President, especially if he is in the same party!
No offense to the President, personally, but I was encouraged to hear the President's rating have dropped to the lowest of any other President, at this point in his term. There is a glimmer of hope after all.
I mean no disrespect to the man, I believe he got way in over his head. It amazes me exactly how a person with his past record* became President of the United States of America.
* By "record" I am not referring to any criminal activity.
