OBAMA -- INEPT OR DELIBERATELY DESTROYING TRADITIONAL AMERICA


THIS ARTICLE DEFINES PRESIDENT OBAMA'S LACK OF QUALIFICATIONS AND HIS MANAGEMENT STYLE

SOME SAY “AMERICA HAS BECOME TOO COMPLEX  TO MANAGE.” I REJECT THAT EMPHATICALLY. RATHER WE ARE ELECTING PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO MANAGE HER. PRESIDENT OBAMA EPITOMIZES THIS DILEMMA.


Since he was first elected president with no accountable job performance, no notable qualifications and with much of his background unknown, many have speculated that Mr. Obama is an operative for others, a “Manchurian candidate” or a “Charley McCarthy” to one or more Edgar Bergen's. While evidence can be sighted to lend credence to such theory, his ineffective job performance and management style make it compelling to conclude that he is simply not qualified for the top job in the world.

In managing any enterprise, it's a huge mistake to promote a person to a level of management beyond his qualifications. That person invariably continues doing what he or she was doing at the lower level and normally tries simply to do more of it. He does what he understands and stays in his comfort zone. Obama was a "community organizer" requiring mainly persuasive skills. His job would have been to persuade the lower socioeconomic class to go against the "higher ups.” To do so, he convinced them that they were victims of those who "controlled" them. Those who were employed he convinced to organize unions. Those who were unemployed, his job would have been to get them on the public dole. This he has done as president. The only attributes needed for that job are persuasive communication and an integrity deficit. He has both and is doing now what he did then....speaking to those who are non-thinking, non-discerning, those looking for benefits, and even the ignorant. Not all are ignorant, but he depends on them following him reflexively with loyalty to the "D," and to his celebrity status. And they do!

An unqualified manager will always hire people who are like him or her, or even of lesser skills. They will be as incompetent as he. They'll be subservient, they won't upstage him and reveal his inadequacies. They will support him for their own benefit (job, prestige, money). Obama's appointees are largely of this ilk. His economic advisers epitomize this – the worst in my lifetime and possibly in history. None understands business and they give no consideration to the structural problems in the economy. They are all Keynesian theorists trying to stimulate the economy as if it suffers an imbalance in supply and demand. Totally wrong-headed!

The EPA has had an incompetent director who has run EPA as a radical environmental activist, not as a responsible manager. She's had no hesitancy to destroy much of the economy, especially coal and oil. She's leaving – her damage done. The will of Obama? Of course!

The Department of Energy under radical unqualified academician, Steven Chu, typifies incompetence – management by prejudicial ideology. His goal was to have gasoline prices “equal to Europe”, $7-9/gal. The president's actions on energy prove he has a similar mind-set. His expenditures on “green energy” defy the management principle that “an enterprise is reinvented or reformed when it's at peak performance and affordable.” Obama's energy policies are antithetical to this. Then there is the unavoidable issue of corruption in awarding billions of dollars, most of it lost, to solar and wind energy companies as well as to electric vehicle manufacturers.

Directors of the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services seem to compete with each other for inexplicable management decisions – Sec. Napolitano on immigration and Sec. Sebelius for dealing with Obamacare as examples. And, DHS's stockpiling of billions of rounds of ammunition lends some credence to conspiracy theorists. But, there's not enough information to make this conclusion. A positive explanation is difficult to come to.

Then there is Eric Holder at DOJ. No doubt he makes prejudicial decisions as he did with the New Black Panthers' voter intimidation in 2008. His prosecution of terrorists is highly questionable. The intervention in questioning the surviving terrorist in the Boston murders is suspicious, to say the least. How about “Fast and Furious” guns to Mexico or the Benghazi cover-up...and more? With Holder, I see deliberate malpractice along with probable incompetence.

And now, we have Chuck Hagel as Sec. Of Defense. His qualifications were questionable. His performance thus far suggests incompetence. To expect improvement would be naïve.

In the corporate world, it normally takes some time for the incompetent manager to be dealt with. CEOs and boards of directors are reluctant to admit a mistake and may try to "work it out." Turnover is ignored with the explanation that the manager is "cleaning house" of incompetence – opposite from reality. Poor financial performance or personnel problems finally get attention. And, the person is fired after much damage has been done to the enterprise.

In the world of the elected and appointed, non-thinking, non-discerning, prejudiced and even ignorant voters are even more unlikely to remove an incompetent president. They vote for celebrity and for benefits and simply for the party label. So it is with Obama.

If the person is narcissistic, it is even more difficult to identify the defects and expose his inadequacies. He will obfuscate, he will corral the least among his people to give him strength. President Obama does this in spades. He speaks persuasively on every issue, with acolytes and sycophants shielding him, to those who don't question him. That's his skill set.

If the person intends subversion, he will go to any length to effect it. Obama may be in this category. I have not wanted to think so but it is now imprudent to ignore it. Until I have more proof, I choose the explanation of his ineffectiveness as herein described.

However, it is now fairly clear that Obama's election to the presidency has assured the loss of traditional America. He is transforming America as he promised in 2008. Non-thinking voters are helping him. Is his goal to destroy her? It seems possible. Reluctantly, I will be vigilant in looking for proof hoping not to find it. Unfortunately, my sense now is that I may find proof.

I WOULD LIKE FOR READERS TO KNOW THAT I GET NO PLEASURE FROM WRITING ESSAYS SUCH AS THIS ONE. HOWEVER,NONE OF THOSE WHO CONTROL THE MESSAGE WILL SPEAK THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT WHAT IS BEING DONE TO AMERICA AND WHY. THIS DOESN'T ADDRESS ALL, BUT DOES PORTRAY THE "LEADER" ACCURATELY. ULTIMATELY, THE CULTURE OF ANY ORGANIZATION, EVEN A NATION, WILL BE DEFINED BY THOSE WHO CONTROL IT.

Well, one thing can be said for sure: He is grossly incompetent. With his work background, how could he be anything other than grossly unqualified for the job.

Next, is he out to destroy America? Well, he clearly dislikes American values, our history, our culture.

Next,he is most definitely a socialist. How can anyone be remotely effective in leading a capitalistic nation when your beliefs lie strongly on the side of socialism.

Next,he identifies closely with Muslims and those of the Islamic faith. He has a member of the Muslim Brotherhood as a close advisor. All speeches, all govt documents are purged on the words 'radical Islams'. He wants all to think these folks just don't exist. If he was a Christian, he would have done some arm twisting of the Egyptian govt to stop the persecution of Coptic Christians before any aid was given--which of course we have to borrow from China or have the Fed monetize the debt so we have the dough to give them... Boy, is that smart.

Contrary to his Oath of Office, he does not support and defend the laws of the land. He unashamedly and quite openly defies them. Yet, he is not challenged as he should be. This is a President that clearly qualifies himself to be impeached. Why hasn't he been?

For all practical purposes,he is out to destroy the America you and I know. NO DOUBT.

Thanks. I'll send you a copy of an e-mail I wrote to R this morning. There's more to be dealt with but we need a level of credibility 1st. The rest of the story in due time....not too long. At the end of the day, the voter blocs who support him without even questioning him are deciding on their own destruction. I believe the sub-culture is now the new norm. Must write more about that.

If Rush Limbaugh retires, you should step in. Your absolute, complete and blind hatred for anything you do not know or understand makes you ultimately qualified for his job. I don't know how you can possibly live a happy family life with your all-consuming fear of anything that doesn't align with your limited and one-sided way of thinking.

You were perfectly happy with a president that got us into two wars (based on lies to the American people,) drove us from a economic surplus to a record deficit in just 8 years, had a vice president who outsourced his war machine to a company he used to run, made America a despised and hated place instead of a respected world leader, let an American city almost implode after a nature disaster because his appointee (a horse farmer) had no clue on how to run FEMA... The list goes on and before I get caught up in your little (and I do mean little) world of hate and mean-spiritedness, I'll wish you all the best and hope that someday your brand of politicing will fade from history as hysterical self-serving, fear-mongering and hatred-based monologue. It is because of people like yourself that good and decent people of this country would never ever consider a life of public service. Why in the world would they subject themselves to this kind of attack. Keep stoking the fires of hyper-partisanship, lies, speculation and distrust. My real fear is that you will instill the same kind of hatred in future generations, even if only your own family. It will never help this country achieve it's full potential. I hope that someday you will be able to find peace and contentment. After reading your posts, I'm not sure that is possible but I can only hope it is.

This post has been one of the most read one daily since posting in May 2013. Suddenly it is not noted in "pageviews." Why?
