Obama “Maybe” Not Good at Governing – Understatement of 2014


On CNN reporter Peter Hamby was recounting a recent conversation he had with a Democrat who used to work in the White House for the Obama administration when he let loose with what may be the biggest understatement of the year!

Obama is maybe not good at “governing!” Maybe?

Let’s set the record straight – Obama has been terrible at governing.

He is a horrible leader who became President because he has some solid oratory skill.

The man is a partisan hack, intellectually stunted and overhelmingly concerned with his image but not with his country.

He’s a disaster.

“I talked to a former Obama White House person, just before Christmas, when Obama was sort of adrift, figuring out what to do, his poll numbers were pretty low. And he said, ‘Look, the president needs to find an issue to campaign on. This is what he’s good at. He’s really good at campaigning. Maybe not governing,’ according to this Democrat.”

(Thanks Captain Obvious!)
