Who ever said he was competent?Peggy Noonan has a piece in yesterday's Wall Street Journal pointing out that the Gulf oil spill is revealing the president's lack of competence. She was one of the "moderate" republicans who supported him in his quest for the White House, one of the enablers of his lust for power and self aggrandizement.
Forgotten in the Gulf oil spill mess is that is was the federal government itself that created the mess in the first place. By caving in to environment extremists the federals were the ones that drove the drillers offshore in the first place. No company would drill in 5000 of water if they were allowed to drill in 100 feet, but the Greens, backed up by yuppies who wanted a better view from shore, made that impossible, and the federals gave power to their antihuman dreams. ANWR is a perfect example. Nobody makes his living there, only caribou and mosquitoes live there, yet the oil remains in the ground, while shrimpers watch their livelihoods go down the drain.
But Peggy Noonan is really just apologizing for her own support of Obama. Who in their right mind ever thought the empty suit was competent in the first place? Only those who were willfully blind to his lack of any single achievement voted for him. The evidence was there from day one, that all this clown knew how to do is make trouble and get himself elected to jobs for which he was unqualified, and all he ever did, once elected, was to use the position as a springboard to higher office.
