Charles Krauthammer: VA Scandal, Economy ... 'A Crisis of Competence For ObamaTopics: Political News and commentaries
As usual, Krauthammer is spot-on!
Krauthammer, via Jeff Poor at Breitbart:
"You put them all together, and you have a crisis of competence," Krauthammer said. "This administration had a lot of ideological opponents, including me, many others. But it was mostly on their goals, the radical expanding the government, intruding into people's lives. Then you get to a point where you get three factors, as you say, the most important underlying all of it is the economy. If the recession lasted 18 months, the so-called recovery has been on for five years. We now have a quarter of contraction. You compare it with the Reagan recovery, the average for the six years after his recession was a growth of over 4 percent. He was between 1 and 2 [percent]."As is now being widely reported, General Eric Shinseki resigned today ... clearly the result of an accomplished military hero being placed in a position in which he had no qualifications or experience to be in ... by a completely incompetent president - a community organizer/Alinskyite (voted in to office by naive, clueless, low information voters and liberal-progressive ideologues like him) ... who never even managed so much as a lemonade stand, had a voting record to the left of the only openly socialist in Congress, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, is a product of the notoriously corrupt Chicago political machine which rewards political expediency, sleaze, and corruption over character and competence, is a obviously arrogant, narcissistic, calculating, and carefully choreographed politician with no significant accomplishment to his name and with obvious disturbingly shallow core values [if any at all - other than (as is his Attorney General Eric Holder) being race-obsessed, and racially, culturally, and social divisive]!
"So we have high unemployment chronic sort of discontent, and that underlies everything," he continued. "You add onto that the fiasco of ObamaCare, self-inflicted. They can't even put a web site together for half-a-billion dollars. Then you add the VA crisis, which isn't only incompetence, but a kind of banality, a whiff of corruption and there's a moral component. People can understand abusing the IRS for political and all that, but these are veterans. These are people everybody wants to honor and take care of. So add them all together and Shinseki is a dead man. What you heard today was an invitation for a resignation. And I think he's gone by the weekend."
Where to from here? Perhaps community organizer Obama should consider trying to talk a competent, experienced personnel, financial, busy manager/problem solver and turnaround expert like Mitt Romney into taking Shinseki's place.
