Is the Obama Team Up to the Job?
My friends tell me I’m oversimplifying the issues. Maybe I am. Maybe the independents who put President Obama in office were not that fired up about the loss of 50 percent of their portfolios and 30 percent of their home values.
Maybe he didn’t have a golden opportunity to reinstitute sane boundaries on the financial industry that allow them to grow and prosper but don’t allow them to wreck the entire economy.
Maybe he didn’t see that pacifying dozens of warlords and creating an allied, centralized government out of a pile of rocks thousands of miles away was impossible and not worth one of our military personnel getting so much as a hangnail.
Maybe all of us who are generally worried about the rising costs of medical coverage should take comfort that the very same industries who hold sway over those costs authored the biggest cluster (of you know what) in U.S. history.
Maybe we shouldn’t worry that our president walks into meetings with nations around the globe and consistently comes out empty-handed. Maybe I’m just oversimplifying the issues, or maybe, just maybe, the man and his team in Washington are just not up to the job.
