The Art Of "The Incompetence Defense"

This is starting to border on the ridiculous and might even be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic. I've never seen so much finger pointing going on in any administration than the Obama one. I even remember Carter in action and he was a choir boy compared to Obama.

Let me shed a little light on "The Incompetence Defense" so that you can adequately plug in the different scandals and mishaps that keep occurring and then understand why we never get to know what happened, why it happened and who the players were as it happened. "Glitch" Obama is a master of illusion when it comes to conjuring up this type of defense.

The defense leaves one wondering who is in charge at the White House, cabinet department or various other "screw it up" departments within the federal government such as the IRS. According to those who should be in charge, such as the President of the United States, they were clueless about what their subordinates were doing so thereof they are guiltless of gross negligence. You buying that argument?

When even the slickest marketing team, pretty rhethoric and blaming your predecessor and others doesn't hide their failure there is always the facepalm.

This whole administration should leave an intelligent person wondering about a federal government where there is NO, and I mean no, accountability. A lot of finger pointing until it seems so confusing that the actual scandal gets lost in the fog.

Evidently there are enough stupid Americans out there who gobble up that sort of goop with the help of the Lame Stream Media shoveling it into their living rooms. That's the problem now with having a dishonest, useless media who are no more than Obama cheerleaders in drag. I still have trouble with the concept that they see a bloated federal government with an annual budget of, give or take, $3.5 trillion just blasting along at full speed with no one at the helm. Then we have a supposed leader like Obama, finger pointer supreme, telling us that the "buck stops with me." He did say that. So what is it with the buck never quite getting to him?

Isn't this the man who said he was going to change the culture in Washington DC and mop up the mess that he was left? So is what we're being fed is that after 5 years sitting their preening in the Oval Office the Executive Peacock-In-Chief is just a mushroom? Mushrooms live in the dark and are fed manure (I'm using the polite word here) in case you don't get the analogy. in this case I am referring to both Obama and Kathleen Sebilius who are both aghast that the rollout of Obamacare wasn't ready! So who was minding the store you two?

Then another question pops up? Will this type of defense ever end as long as Obama is in office. Will anyone ever hold him accountable and if not, why is he that untouchable. He is driving this nation over the cliff and everyone remains a passenger without lifting a finger?

Time for America to wake up. This "Incompetence Defense" has now been puttering along since Obama took office. Fast & Furious, Libya, Benghazi, Syria, the IRS Scandal and now Obamacare have finely honed Obama's use of this defense. Will this latest deal with Obamacare be the straw that breaks the camel's back? If not how much more can this nation take of his incompetence? He is in charge though he doesn't now seem to want to be after begging twice for the job. In retrospect though he has never been in charge because he has none of the qualifications to lead. Blame yes, lead no.

What we usually see is a pack of stooges telling us that Obama just didn't know. Or Obama telling us he found out the same way many of us do - via news reports. The video below is worth watching just to hear the total rubbish that keeps getting spewed. They had over three years to get it right and blew it. Maybe too much golf, lavish vacations and globe trotting grinning like a fool leads to such incompetence as this.

What we need to see is for the federal government to get out of the health care industry business and between our doctor and us. We don't need a federal Nanny to tell us ever move we need to make in life. Some do but many don't.

Here's What I'm talking About....

The good news? Good grief woman! How can anyone in good conscience just ignore the failed tests and warnings from the designers themselves that everything wasn't ready in Oshkosh to roll this fiasco off the assembly line. So Sebelius isn't going on Obamacare because she "has insurance." She should be fired just for saying such a thing. Industry experts were shouting "don't go" and they were ignored. Why?

During that entire interview, which is on You Tube, Sebelius as much as admitted that Obama was totally ignorant that his "signature legislation" was about to bite him on his buttocks. I have trouble believing a word of that. Is that why he fought so hard to make sure the "individual mandate" wasn't delayed like he himself delayed the business mandate.? Hindsight is 20/20 huh Barack?

New Federal Holiday On October 1st

Maybe "political loyalty, which by the way is usually detrimental to the American tax payer these days, will be the torpedo that sinks the USS Obama and his signature legislation. I'm sick of watching foil after foil get thrown under the Obama bus to protect his incompetence. I know I know this was also all the Republican's fault. Obama played that card again the other day in his speech.

They didn't write the law, not one of them voted for this train wreck and it would have been wise for Obama to have delayed the implementation for at least a year. Instead he fell on his sword and let us go through a government shut down to make people who knew what they were dealing with look bad and use his tired rhetoric once again.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "If you can't trust the government to build a simple website, do you really want it overseeing your open heart surgery?"

Another GREAT article on the GREAT "INCOMPETENT"! Sadly, there are people who refuse to see this. These are the same people who see Obama as a "savior". He is the MOST DANGEROUS president. Bush is a choirboy compared to the manically evil man. He is evil incarnate, he is incompetent like a king cobra!

So now the Senate and house are trying to delay the mandate for a year? Gee isn't that why Obama and Reid shut down the government - ONLY because they wouldn't agree to doing that? If they do now, then Cruz and the Tea Party congress look like prophetic geniuses - to any sane person anyway...and the democrats in the senate who now want to support it look like buffoons just hoping not to lose their next election. Maybe "We told you so" will be the only necessary campaign slogan next time around.

tsadjatko - The Dem support they are picking up are for delaying are the vulnerable Dems who somehow got elected in Red States. I agree that the political theater we just watched Reid and Obama conduct is about to come home to roost on them.

The GOP screwed up trying to stop Obamacare. Obama wants this to be his legacy and they should have let him have it. Had they made it clear that Obama and the Dems owned this nightmare, and were totally responsible for the outcome, things might have been different.

If they had even used the word "Responsible," many of the rats would have jumped ship immediately.

As you pointed out clearly in your hub, "accountability" and "responsibility" just don't exist in the Obama administration.

Frog, you have a nack for getting right to the meat of a mattter! Incompetence is an understatement in this administration. There are so many past and probably future Obama officials that should have been fired long ago or should be as more "phoney" scandals are uncovered that their biggest problem will be finding or making positions to promote the perpetrators to so they won't be fired. I can see Obama now, "Well Kathleen, I can't promote you to that post because I just gave it to ambassador Rice and I still need to find positions for some more DOJ lawyers from fast and furious let alone the IRS employees. I'm just going to have to ask you to retire, but you'll have to say it was your idea to retire." That's the way this government is run - IAU is appropriate Tsad.

Bro - We're past time to impeach Obama. This morning I read where Obama is going to delay the individual mandate unilaterally until the end of March. This is the most lawless President I have ever seen. That includes Richard M. Nixon and he was atrocious.

The Republicans keep missing the opportunity and painting this Obama turd legislation a total fiasco. Obama, the dummycrats, and the lamestream media keep pointing fingers at the Republicans and the RINOS don't say a thing and turn their back on the more conservative members. Throw the bum RINOs out. Keep voting in the republicans who believe in small gov't and dump the whole entire failed economic growth and the Obamacare FAIL on the dummycrats who ginned up all these stupid things and don't know how to fix it.

Amen to that Cassie. Few know Sebelius failed at government website projects prior to serving in Obama administration. Sebelius’ failure at designing websites to provide government services began during her term as governor of Kansas, long before the Obamacare website debacle, Kansas political insiders told The Daily Caller which makes you wonder if BO wanted an expert at incompetence to oversee Ovomitcare (good job Mr. President, hire proven failures to run your legacy program..that doesn't make YOU incompetent does it). Sebelius oversaw numerous costly and disastrous government website projects during her six-year governorship (2003-2009), including a failed update of the Department of Labor’s program to provide unemployment pay and other services and similar updates pertaining to the Department of Administration and the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) services. The Department of Labor’s overhaul of its computer programs was a notable boondoggle, according to 14-year former Kansas state senator and former state Labor Secretary Karin Brownlee.

The secret to success is to surround yourself with competent people.

I guess Obama never heard of this during all his years as an foreign exchange student.

Obama doesn't give a damn about making sure that his "fabulous great ideas" actually work. He is a thinker not a doer. Personally, I am not surprised that his signature legislation is in the toilet. It is exactly where it belongs. Great writing as usual.

POTUS/DEMS OWN Obamacare 100% Obama's legacy is a FRAUD The American people will wake up and speak out Obama said '' it's good product'' far from being good more like a disaster. Budget was $95 million today cost $630 million and counting. CBO projections $2.70 trillion cost to taxpayers. Congress needs to REPEAL THIS LAW ! http://hubpages.com/politics/BARAKOBAMAHEALTHCARES...

There are simply no words to describe Obama. Everything he does is the inverse of what one would think he should do. And every time something blows up in his face, he says he didn't know it was happening. But in the end, nothing in government happens by chance. There's always a reason, although it may be very well hidden to prevent public discord. Either Obama is extremely stupid, or incredibly evil. I used to think the former. I now believe the latter.

Sadly, some of the American people are STILL asleep re: Obama. They refue to see Obama for who he is. They rationalize his evil social policies. When an intelligent person explains the fallacy to his policies, these people go into attack mode, calling the intelligent person a bigot, right winger, and/or worse. These people will follow Obama into......HELL! An Aretha Franklin song comes to mind, " Chains of Fools". Obama is the SNAKE OIL salesman of the millenium. He outslicks Slick Willie!

gm - In reality many of those people are just Democratic Party drones who march to some one else's drum rather than their own. They need some one to tell them what to do, when to do it and how to do it. It's called being stupid.

Jon,

Great links. They confirm what I've always believed - BHO is a transnational socialist who almost certainly is not a natural born US citizen. I may sound crazy, but as an American citizen I'm more afraid of what Obama might do to us than Russia or China. Our military can always deal with foreign invaders. But who can intervene against the guy at the top when he does wrong? The courts are too activist, Congress is too chicken, and high Admin officials can simply be fired if they don't play ball. This man is hellbent on taking America down a road of total economic, social, military, and geopolitical ruin. And I'm both sad and horrified that he's achieving his goal.

Here is how it ultimately pans out.

Mr. Obama is unqualified to watch my 3.7 year old alone. Who the hell would be responsible? Well my son would take the blame I am sure. Even though it was clearly Obama's whiskey that spilled on the carpet.
