The Obama administration trifecta

I found this pithy and trenchant description of the Obama administration at Ace’s:

All the ethical integrity of the Clinton administration combined with the economic acumen of the Carter administration and rounded off with the domestic policy and war-fighting expertise of Lyndon Baines Johnson.

A veritable trifecta of duncedom.

But I would amend it to say that, in all three respects, the Obama administration is substantially worse than these predecessors.

    I don’t see how Obama and his administration make it through another three years of this incompetence.

    If this continues — so far Obama has given us no reason to suppose he’ll do better — all but the most rabid supporters will desert him.

    As things stand, ~45% of potential voters polled by Rasmussen not only disapprove of Obama, they disapprove of him strongly. According to another poll, 44% would prefer George W. Bush now.

    Obama has rehabilitated Bush in less than a year!

    People want a dictator these days, a man on a white horse. They’re looking for a man on a white horse to ride in and tell them what to do. A politician can do anything he wants so long as he manipulates the right symbols.

    — Jerry Brown, (1974)

    If Obama fails as badly as it looks that he will, what happens to all the frail human hopes that were pinned to this Man on a White Horse?

    Isn’t he our Dunce-in-chief?

    “I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.”

    Obama the Antichrist? 🙂

    Nothing. Nothing! Could be worse than Lyndon “Gulf of Tonkin” Johnson.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
