This is a small compilation of several recent articles showing the current administrations inability to manage the peoples business. Read them all and see what I mean.

ABC's Jake Tapper is one of the few White House Press reporters who have not been swigging down the Presidential cool aid.

The White House is on, but nobody’s home


“There is a price to be paid when a president throws a party every other night, weekends in Chicago or Camp David and poses for magazine cover after magazine cover.
“After 51 days in office, Barack Obama has appointed only 73 people to 1,200 jobs that require Senate confirmation.”


More than a bad day: Worries grow that Barack Obama & Co. have a competence problem


"Not long ago, after a string of especially bad days for the Obama administration, a veteran Democratic pol approached me with a pained look on his face and asked, "Do you think they know what they're doing?"
The question caught me off guard because the man is a well-known Obama supporter. As we talked, I quickly realized his asking suggested his own considerable doubts."

White House says economy is sound despite 'mess' (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090315/ap_on_go_pr_wh/obama_economy - broken link)


"During the fall campaign, Obama relentlessly criticized his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, for declaring, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong." Obama's team painted the veteran senator as out of touch and failing to grasp the challenges facing the country."

Pew: Obama’s support eroding

A second major polling firm sees an erosion of support for Barack Obama after less than two months in office. Pew Research reports that Obama’s approval ratings have dropped below 60% and his negatives have climbed significantly after his first 50 days in office. Their results parallel those from Rasmussen:

It's more pathetic than hilarious at that ferver to label a man a failure after less than 3 months while defending GWB after he was overwhelmingly declared a failure after his full body of work was taken into account. It's simply pathetic.

When would Obama have developed a work ethic? As a community organizer?
And voting "present" as a senator isn't exactly putting your nose to the grindstone.
He doesn't know any other way.

Did it surprise you to read that only 72 of 1200 have been appointed that need Senate confirmation? It must be real hard finding honest people to fill those roles.

Yeah that's pretty bad. Then again...I never knew there were 1200 that needed to be appointed. You would think we would delay the parties until after that was done.
