Obama would "make a good queen"

From Drew Westen at HuffPo:

Like most Americans I talk to, when I see the president on television, I now change the channel the same way I did with Bush. With Bush, I couldn't stand his speeches because I knew he meant what he said. I knew he was going to follow through with one ignorant, dangerous, or misguided policy after another. With Obama, I can't stand them because I realize he doesn't mean what he says -- or if he does, he just doesn't have the fire in his belly to follow through. He can't seem to muster the passion to fight for any of what he believes in, whatever that is. He'd make a great queen -- his ceremonial addresses are magnificent -- but he prefers to fly Air Force One at 60,000 feet and "stay above the fray."

It's the job of the president to be in the fray. It's his job to lead us out of it, not to run from it. It's his job to make the tough decisions and draw lines in the sand. But Obama really doesn't seem to want to get involved in the contentious decisions. They're so, you know, contentious. He wants us all to get along. Better to leave the fights to the Democrats in Congress since they're so good at them. He's like an amateur boxer who got a coupon for a half day of training with Angelo Dundee after being inspired by the tapes of Mohammed Ali. He got "float like a butterfly" in the morning but never made it to "sting like a bee."

Wow... I'd call that a b*tch-slap.  And from a lefty.

Via the seriously insightful folks at VerumSerum.

Wait and see... the President's people will soon be extolling his leadership on issues and the evidence for that leadership will be how he's pissing off both the left and the right.

In 3, 2, 1...

Typical Blind Lefty. Actually thinks Barry "doesn't have the guts" to follow through on stuff he never intended to follow through on. What an immature and pathetically naive idiot. As routinely mirrored by certain regular commenters here.

Hilary had him pegged all along. The author seems to have forgotten that, when she was asked about Obama's qualifications, she replied, "He gives a nice speech."

GarandFan:

Buyer's remorse is a sad thing to witness. BELIEVED! TRULY BELIEVED! A man with a gift for gab (as long as it's on a teleprompter), a man with no past record of any significant accomplishment, a man who never cast a "bipartisan" vote in his life, a man who never 'led' anything, BUT THEY BELIEVED!

Sorry lefties, you get no sympathy here. I'll tell you where you can find it in the dictionary. As for the whores in the MSM, you wanted HIM, you promoted HIM. You can have HIM. As for your credibility, well you sold your souls and your cred to get HIM elected. Learn to live with it, and I really don't care to hear your sniveling now.

DaveD:

Well, it seems Barry does have a tough time taking ANY stance these days in domestic policy(I'm not feeling sorry for him, by the way) If he moves too far left, the independents are suspicious and conservatives are on his case. Too middle of the road and the far left is screeching about betrayal. But I don't take any satisfaction in the left trashing him because I read things like this below from the link suggesting the way Barry should show character:

"I won't sign a health bill into law that forces women and couples to have a child they did not intend and are not ready to parent because of the dictates of someone else's faith or conscience."

Always the same in the libweral mindset. Somebody screws up over something they had complete control over and the rest of us have to pay for their regrets or mistakes. The shifting whims or problems of a liberal always supercede my morals. I say let the far left go at him. They have so little sense of shame and decorum they might actually do a better job of neutering Barry than the right has been able to do up to this point. By the way, does this make Mr Westin at HuffPo a racist????

jim2:

When I voiced skepticism over candidate Obama, I was asked if I were racist. I said I would have voted for Colin Powell, but that Obama had not done anything, not been seen when he had to make decisions, when he would be held accountable.

Powell and McCain, though imperfect both, had a real world track record. Furthermore, the few Obama inferences that were available seemed negative. He tacitly accepted the Wright stuff because it advanced him in that community, when speaking up or leaving would have shown character. He hid his grades. He dissembled about Ayers. Even his candidacy speeches were tailored to each audience and to such an extent that it suggested deceit. I pointed out as an example what he said in Scranton and then went to San Francisco and derided the Ohio PA folk who were "bitter, who cling to their guns or religion".

hcddbz:

The left has alwaYS gotten what they wanted which was words not action.
For years they talked about WMDS in Iraq and got Pissed when Bush did something.

For years they talked about standards and how American schools where worst in the world and got pissed when Bush did something working with the Democrats. (No Child left behind still was bad)

For years they complained about prescription drugs and once again got pissed when Bush working with Dems passed theMedicare part D.
(another crappy expansion of government)
They love words and shriek from action. BHO is just does it better.

The truth is that GW was more Bi-Partasian than BHO ever will be but they were so blinded by the R after his name they could not see what they had. In the same way they were so enamored with electing a Black man (really half black half white) they could not see he had no real record except as an agitator and political operative.

The truly sad part is the lefties are getting everything they really want.
The health care bill create 70 new government agencies in s few years there will be single payer as the regulations force companies out of business. The only people who will have decent health care will be the Unions and Government which are both exempt. The high cost will force everyone private sector to join government or unions.

The ROE in IRAQ and Afghanistan are becoming so onerous that our men and women will soon want to re up as their missions become futile. They will blame the troops for the failure and bring in the Union Peace keepers.

GITMO will be closed.

The progressives will get everything they want. BHO has surrounded hims self with the far left fringe and while he is waffling in public, but as rules are being rewritten in the executive branch our freedoms are being taken away.
Again something they said Bush was doing.
The greatest trick the devil did was convince the world he did not exist.

BHO is doing the same thing. Conservative may rejoice for short time thinking the far left has lost their infatuation with the man. However BHO is terminator he

That Progressives BHO is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until America is socialist .
