Why is Barack Obama, attributed to be the smartest politician to ever grace the Oval Office, labeled like the Sgt. Schultz (“I know nothing”) character in “Hogan’s Heroes,” whenever failures surface? Benghazi (Where was Obama for eight hours while four Americans died?), Fast and Furious (We don’t even know how many died), the IRS and NSA scandals (Did the White House authorize?), the rollout of Obama Care ($600 million for a website that doesn’t work) are all defended with “The president didn’t know.” How stupid do these folks think we are?
If I lead and get blind-sided with issues as serious as the aforementioned, I should be fired and my entire staff of direct reports should be fired. There is no other option. Has one agency head been fired? Are we supposed to accept that Obama knew nothing about any of these events?
Leaders who don’t know what is going on within the walls of their organization are either not interested or have no clue what it takes to lead an enterprise. Either situation warrants removal from the leadership role and should never be attributed to our president.
It is time the uninformed, ignorant or apathetic voters take their heads out of the sand and begin to look at the view in front of them. We either have a woefully incompetent president who has surrounded himself with a gang of incompetents or one who is implementing the most radical socialistic, anti-American policies in our long history. It’s truly frightening to think we may have both events happening at the same time.
We get lie after lie from this administration and the president. Yet media coverage is more about protecting Obama than getting to the truth. Are we afraid to criticize the first black president for fear of being labeled a racist? FYI, it’s not racism to remove incompetent people whether they are white or black. We need to muster sufficient courage to get over this label and make the necessary changes to save America. But sadly, we may have already let this administration turn America into the proverbial snowball rolling down the hill.
