Well, no, not really. But it’s exactly the kind of thing one would expect under the present regime. Pratfall after pratfall, gaffe piled on gaffe, economy-busting spending bills yoked with the new “Kick Me” foreign policy, nominees for high office disappearing like characters in an Agatha Christie novel. Color me unimpressed.
But taking into consideration the game plan of the liberals, do we really want competence at the top? When it comes right down to it, given the left-wing destination the Democrats have in mind for the ship of state, maybe a seasick captain hanging over the rails of the poop deck, oblivious to the increasingly panicked reports of his sailing master, is the lesser of two evils.
Postscript: On second thought, we don't want the ship of state going down with all hands, so I imagine that what we should be praying for is that B.O. will have some kind of epiphany and discover that everything he's believed his whole life long is nothing but the most egregious flapdoodle, and that he will do a 180 on his politics (and as Seinfeld used to say, "Good luck with all that").
Update: The incompetence theory is gaining traction.
