Beyond Expectations

I'm visiting here and there on the 'net and find many conservatives shocked and awed by our new President. They believed it would take Obama six months to show his level of incompetence. But two weeks? Outside the realm of calculation. Only three Years 11 months and 6 days to go. He has exceeded his opposition's expectations on economics by a large margin. I wonder how he will do when his foreign policy test shows up. But I don't wonder much. I expect a similar level of performance. Beyond expectations.

I have to admit, my greatest fear was that he was in fact a socialist, but understood that Americans will only stand for real socialism if the "how to boil a frog" method is followed. If he wanted to follow his (apparent) beliefs successfully, he had to sneak up on his preferred policies. I was afraid he was a canny, dishonest believer.

This is turning into a train wreck because he appears to be either honest to a fault, or extremely confident. He's acting as though he believes Americans either are in accordance with his beliefs, or are not going to get a chance to vote him out. Heck, on health care he's skipped right past the "socialism" part and gone straight to the "rationing" part--otherwise known as "some animals are more equal than others".

It takes a special kind of person to do that. I'm actually leaning toward "honest" coupled with "clueless".

Obama could not have been elected but for the fact that every source of news (except Fox) is completely controlled by idiot democrats.

The Liberal Democrats of which 90% of the News Media is made up of, CAUSED this to happen.

Until we have a WAR on the media, it will not be possible to fix any of this mess.
