The New Ship of State: The USS Incompetent


Remember the now famous line from Apollo 13 (the real one, not the movie)?

Houston we have a problem.

I think that just about says everything you really need to know about Barack Obama and how to be President of the United States in 3 Easy Lessons.

What is the problem?

It’s one thing to talk the talk, posture, pretend, preen, and act like you’re all that.  You can give good speeches.  But, when it comes down to actually being POTUS, you must possess something called leadership.  I hate to mention this, but leadership skills come from doing things like Boy Scouts.  It comes from taking part in church activities.  It comes from doing something during your teen years besides sticking coke up your nose.  You need to have a real job in the real world and learn a little besides how to appease a revolutionary in three easy lessons.

It’s called growing up to be a responsible adult.  Alan Caruba of the Canadian Free Press predicts before the mid-terms, the Dems will force the USS Incompetent to resign from office.

Rick Moran, in American Thinker ponders  Obama being lazy. He also reminds us that Obama’s resume is just about as padded as any other liberal looking for a pathetic mid-level entry executive position.

“…To the extent President Obama is taking the country further down the road to socialism, he needs to be held accountable for his actions. Obama, not Bush, is now the head of state. If Obama isn’t making the decisions right now, if  he isn’t running the country right now, who is?…”

The poor man is in over his head.  He allegedly insulted Gordon Brown because he was exhausted.   Evidently the USS Incompetence is in such bad shape, he can’t get people to work for him.  On the other hand, like my father mentioned Saturday night, Obama’s never run anything, not even an office.  He has no executive experience. He’s never been involved in a business.  He has no earthly idea how to manage people or employees.

Will The One (incompetent) be able to handle the increasing criticism of the job?  I don’t think he can.  Fred Barnes wrote:

“…The budget scared prominent Obamaphiles like David Brooks of the New York Times and Jim Cramer, the boisterous financial broadcaster. Brooks wrote that Obama “is not who we thought he was.” Cramer said Obama is causing “the greatest wealth destruction I’ve seen by a president.” Criticized for his comment by White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, Cramer responded: “If that makes me an enemy of the White House, then call me a general of an army that Obama may not even know exists–tens of millions of people who live in fear of having no money saved when they need it and get poorer by the day.” Moderate Democrats and Republicans were also shaken and said so publicly. The business community, which has tried to appease Obama, is growing fearful….”

“…I would make a modest prediction that in 2012, after four years of the man who was supposed to heal America’s relations with a world sick of all that swaggering cowboy unilateralism, those relations will be much worse. From Canada to India, the implications of the Obama ascendancy are becoming painfully clear. The other week Der Spiegel ran a piece called “Why Obamania Isn’t the Answer,” which might more usefully have been published before the Obamessiah held his big Berlin rally. Written by some bigshot with the German Council on Foreign Relations and illustrated by the old four-color hopey-changey posters all scratched up and worn out, the essay conceded that Europe had embraced Obama as a “European American.” Very true. The president is the most European American ever to sit in the Oval Office. And, because of that, he doesn’t need any actual European Europeans getting in the way — just as, at his big victory-night rally in Chicago, the first megastar president didn’t need any megastar megastars from Hollywood clogging up the joint: Movie stars who wanted to fly in were told by his minders that he didn’t want any other celebrities deflecting attention from him. Same with world leaders. If it’s any consolation to Gordon Brown, he’s just not that into any of you…”

Once upon a time, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poem, called O Ship of State.

Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
‘Tis of the wave and not the rock;
‘Tis but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee.
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee, -are all with thee!
