    Diagnosing Obama's Failure to Lead

    Posted by ROBERT STEIN
    Aug 8th, 2011

    Distressed by George W. Bush, even those of us who try to resist psychobabble eventually succumbed to seeing him as a reformed drunk who had found God and was punishing the nation with his uncomprehending new-found piety.

    Now Drew Westen, a practicing psychologist and political consultant, offers a diagnosis of Barack Obama that, in all fairness, deserves similar consideration–of how he took office in a frightening time when Americans “needed their president to tell them a story that made sense of what they had just been through, what caused it, and how it was going to end. They needed to hear that he understood what they were feeling, that he would track down those responsible for their pain and suffering, and that he would restore order and safety.

    “And perhaps most important, it would have offered a clear, compelling alternative to the dominant narrative of the right…that those who can afford to buy influence are rewriting the rules so they can cut themselves progressively larger slices of the American pie while paying less of their fair share for it.

    Much of the media has spent the past decade obsessing about the malapropisms of George W. Bush, the ignorance of Sarah Palin, and perhaps soon the stupidity of Rick Perry. Nothing is so typical of middling minds than to harp on the intellectual deficiencies of the slightly less smart and considerably more successful.

    But it takes actual smarts to understand that glibness and self-belief are not sufficient proof of genuine intelligence. Stupid is as stupid does, said the great philosopher Forrest Gump. The presidency of Barack Obama is a case study in stupid does.
    Great article!!
    One thing that is obvious from Obama and his wife is how arrogant they are. Not only by word but by deed and body language. The extravagant trips, the number of trips, the golf games, the denigration of GWB, the words spoken in the article and more. I wish the Republicans would dish it back by pointing out the gaffs and misstatements by Obama and Biden.

    Mr. Niagra can you tell me how many days George Bush spent on vacation during his time in office?
    Can you tell me how that compares with President Obama?
    Can you tell me how many times George Bush played golf during his Presidency?

    Are you really criticizing President Obama because he plays golf? Lol. This could be one of the silliest comments about President Obama's
    presidency i have heard yet. Im sure it didnt bother you when GWB played gold now did it? RIDICULOUS.
    Its ok to oppose President Obama's policies, but please talk policy not silliness.

    When you post those facts we can have a discussion.

    Liberals speak often of tolerance, but they only tolerate Liberals and Liberal ideas. For instance, Liberals hate Christianity and conservative Bible believing Christians are persona non grata in any gathering of Liberals. Liberals are extremely intolerant concerning Christianity because of its insistence upon personal responsibility and moral absolutes. Liberals know that a society without moral absolutes and a society without strong emphasis upon personal responsibility will fall like a ripe apple into their greedy socialist clutches because self reliance and rugged individualism are traits that are only found amongst moral peoples who come from strong families.

    Your starting to sound a little angry and unhinged with some of your latest comments on Liberals and me. Sorry to see you in such a state.
