It depends. If you’re looking at it from the standpoint of is he engaged the day-to-day duties and responsibilities of the office of the President, then no he’s not very good. If you’re looking at it from the standpoint of getting results….uh, then no, he’s still not good. Ok, so basically he sucks at his job.

He’s a cleaned-up version of Sharpton or Jackson. What did anyone expect?

“Maybe”?

…he’s a leech!

Of course he isn’t good at governing. He never had any intention of “governing”. He and his administration think that he (and therefore they) “rule”.

As The Won knows everything it is quite impossible for him to learn anything about governing.

Extremely skilled in the art of vacationing at the expense of other people’s money.

No sh!t? Really?

The President needs us to give him an issue to campaign on, since he doesn’t handle the actual job of governing so well.

So basically, Obama’s purpose in the world is to promote someone else’s topics of import, and try not to get involved in implementing anything that passes as a result?

And people balk at me referencing The Manchurian Candidate?

But but, there was a halo around his head in all those pictures!!!

Other than convincing morons to vote for him, what exactly is Obama good at?

Biden tried to tell us. He essentially described Obama as “Clean and new and doesn’t talk like a black guy”…

You beat me to it.
The first thing that came to my mind was “No sh!t Sherlock!”.

That’s because that the definitions you’re applying are the old normal. He didn’t become President to govern, he became President to become the National (International?) Community Organizer.

And, we are a nation with a book-cover-judger majority. They got what they deserved, and we had to come along for the ride.

Maybe it’s cold in Antarctica.

This. He has such disdain for what America is and has been. Not to govern, but to transform.

I don’t care, Obama is awesome.

You forgot the “like totally…”.

dentarthurdent on January 6, 2014 at 2:47 PM

well when your goal is to fundamentally transform your own country into a marginalized player on the world stage and move your economy from a demand economy based on freely exchanging goods and services to a command economy, then yes he is indeed very good at that type of destructive “governing”. dumb@$$. hes doing exactly what he said he would do. and very well. when they stop pretending he is a president, like all the other ones, who cared about the well-being of his country, and not ideology, consequences be damned, all this hand-wringing would end. that being said: it wont.
