Hubris or Inexperience?

Rate this topic

44 posts in this topic

As the old saying goes, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." Every administration has its problems with nominees but Obama's seem to exceed the threshold of most. Yesterdays debacle, where two nominee's withdrew over tax problems, after similar problems with other nominee's, seems to indicate that Obama and his administration are lacking in some critical areas.

What is the underlying issue, hubris or inexperience?

Some arrogance..... some inexperience.... and a whole lot of lying, cheating scumbags in the democrat party. That makes it tough for Obama. He felt like he was invincible because everyone told him he was. He didn't realize the political necessities because of his inexperience. And toughest of all....... finding a democrat capable of doing the job that doesn't have skeletons pouring out of the closet as soon as the door is jarred open.

If ever there was a time that called for people who are above board and squeaky clean this was it.........and we get three (that we know about) idiots who didn't pay their taxes and an administration that thought:

 

a. Nobody would notice, or

 

b. If they did notice they wouldn't care.

 

Unbelievable.

 

They should have seen this coming.

 

In the grand scheme I think this is just a bump in the road, but the timing and message couldn't be worse.

I see you've taken a 180 degree turn in your opinion about this sort of thing since Bush has left office.

 

I guess that's the "change" Obama brought us. biggrin.gif

Lame DB. But I understand. Really I do. Your faithfulness to the Socialist Marxists is commendable!

View Postpfffffffft,

as the messiah, anyone he choses MUST be right for the job........

I didn't see anyone toss out Jesus' Disciples for tax issues.

 

True. But they got fed to the lions just for believing in him. Things are much kinder and gentler these days. We can't even slap some sense into the lefties who believe Obama is the messiah nowadays.

I don't see where "Hubris" comes in. Inexperience? Maybe. Not sure what either has to do with good intentions.

 

I think the real issue is Obama ran on promise of change and higher standards. Now it's time to live up to that promise.

 

Personally I'm much more concerned by the angles that DON'T make the news on these nominees. Daschle is clearly a lobbyist whether he's licensed as such or not. And Geithner is another Goldman/Sachs alumni who went along with the Bush treasury department changes without a quibble. He's a long way from the kind of person I'd want in charge of the Treasury even if he DID pay his taxes in full and on time.

 

Obama's "intentions" as demonstrated by his actions are to stick to the middle of the road. Clearly he's rejected "doing good" for merely "stop being stupid". Don't get me wrong: This is a MASSIVE improvement over the last 8 years. But it's a long way from anything that might start healing the country. If he keeps going the way we've begun then we're in for four years of "don't offend anyone" as a presidential policy.

So you and Pelosi are on the same page. Screw 45+% of the American population just because you can.

 

It is just shameful the way the elected thiefs are treating the citizens and have been treating. Both sides, fire them all and start over.mad.gif
