VA Fallout: Boston Globe, LA Times Declare Obama Incompetent

The scandal at the Veteran's Administration is rocking the Obama regime and may yet be one of the worst scandals of the Obama era. Already two major newspapers are starting to accuse the Obama administration of utter incompetence.

In fact, a lack of "competence" is exactly how columnist for the Boston Globe Jeff Jacoby put it May 25.

Jacoby points out that Obama ran on the claim that he would be the perfect manager because he would put all the right sort of intellectual, liberal managers in place while he ran herd on them all. As he first vied for president in 2008, Obama got the endorsement of most voters because of his promise of competence.

Voters – encouraged by newspaper endorsements that saw in Obama's campaign "a marvel of sound management" (The Boston Globe) and backed him because he "offered more competence than drama" (Los Angeles Times) – ate it up. An astonishing 76 percent of respondents in a CNN/ORC poll shortly after the 2008 election agreed that Obama could "manage the government effectively."

Shame on us, bedazzled by promises and little else.

Really... Obviously that pole was not statistically significant... Rounded up 100 Dems to get that level of response.

It's a poll, not a pole.

PLEASE tell me WHY the electorates` brains have been on a 4 yr. delay. All these stories I`m hearing is stale news as they have been exposed many times over yet the public has mentally refused to acknowledge the TRUTH. OweBama is and has been since day one incompetant. George Bush was one of the biggest bumblers I`ve EVER witnessed but he camoed himself and his comedy of errors with smart people. OweBama better have hoped and prayed hard that the republicans DON`T win the Senate and the House because if they do He`s toast and I bet Holder will have a lot more lies to tell to save his ass from charges too. Don`t worry, the RNC won`t forget them. Bob Aswell

why has it taken soooo looonnnggg for the liberal media lap dogs to figure out the failure of this community organizer?

His community organizing days were spent signing people up for mortgages they couldn't well afford, as part of clinton's expansion of the Community Reinvestment Act. He's such a slave to the banking industry. The already poor people lost their butt's and the banking executives took millions in bonuses on tax payer bailout money. Anyone that supports obama is such a moron. Nothing he has ever done has been a success and has actually turned into a boondoggle of epic proportions. I wish the blacks would see him for what he is and not continue to worship him because he is black. They would be much better off if they wouldn't get hung up on a candidates skin color and focus on their accomplishments. Until the do the blacks will continue to spiral more and more into the cess pool of crime and poverty. There is no hope for them until they decide to help themselves by electing accomplished officials and not lying putrid ghetto trash, who has a chip on his shoulders because he doesn't know who his father is and his mother was a "hoe."
