The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Obama’s incompetent campaign

Written By: Bob - May• 22•12

It’s easy to run a campaign when you’re a nobody and the media doesn’t care about vetting your, or finding out your positions beyond that fact that your more radical as they could have ever dreamed. Four years later, Barack Obama is a known quantity, trying to hide from his record.

It’s not working out for him so well as his re-election campaign proves to be as incompetent as his presidency.

I confess that not in my wildest dreams did I imagine President Obama’s campaign would be so awful. Oh sure, I knew it would be “awful” in the sense of going negative, being disingenuous and blaming everyone for his failings. But I was taken by surprise by how “awful,” in the sense of incompetent and ham-handed, it has been.

Virtually every gambit and issue (“war on women,” gay marriage, and now Bain) has gone haywire, arguably inflicting more damage to Obama than to Mitt Romney.

Romney sounds like he’s the president when he responds more in sadness than in anger to Obama’s assertion he’s going to make the campaign about Bain.

It couldn’t happen to a more deserving Marxist.

    Obama’s campaign reminds me of the kids I knew in school who tried to go from high school sports to professional sports but failed miserably at the transition. It’s easy to seem like you’re the best in the world when you’ve only played in the amateur leagues and most of your teammates aren’t really trying that hard (or aren’t very good in the first place). Then you move up to the big leagues where everyone is busting their butt to win and everyone is good at what they do, and suddenly you’re not the superstar you thought you were.

    if Obama wins it will demonstrate that America no longer cares about competence, only about a feel good comic book narrative. If he loses, better politicians in general will be chosen for at least the next 20 years since “incompetence” on both the part of the politician and the press will not be as easily tolerated as it was in 2008 ( this includes Mc Cain too). so it has been here in New York after Dinkins was defeated. I might also add that just as Dinkins destroyed the Black brand in New York, barry is destroying it on a national level, which is too bad really.

    Actually, I might be pulling for the guy. If he wins, that is it, the war starts and we can get it over with. If Mitt, wins, just more of the same old and prolonging the inevitable.

      If Mitt wins, the riots in the streets of the major cities will mark the start of the war.

    Even the NBPP (New Black Panther Party) is disgusted with Obama. The good news is that there won’t be a repeat of the NBPP poll watcher fiasco because the NBPP has decided to go the routine of the “bullet” instead of the “ballot.”
