Obama The Coward
Once again, I’m reminded why a man with zero credentials should never have become President. You have to ask yourself “can this man be any more of a coward? How many times do we have to hear about this guy's complete lack of understanding on how to be presidential? In his latest escapade, President Barack Obama caved in on a proposed regulation standard for ozone standards; bowing down once again to the Republicans. Surprise, surprise! Oh but don’t worry for you die hard Obama fans out there he got his big mug on the television as usual to let us know he “will continue to stand with the hardworking men and women at the EPA as they strive every day to hold polluters accountable and protect our families from harmful pollution,". What a joke this guy is.
His latest cowering is one of many since he has been in office. He has been slapped around by John Boehner. He backed down to releasing photos of the supposed death of Bin Laden. He backed down to the banking industry. He backed down on budget cuts. I could go on for a few days on all of the things this man has backed down on. It seems the only thing he does not back down on is threatening senior citizens, current service members, and military veterans.
Love him or hate him people want to see a President that has a backbone. Most Americans and people from around the world either didn’t like George W Bush from the beginning or they hated him by the end of his presidency. But how many times did you hear “he may not be that smart, but at least he sticks to his guns”?
According to Fred Greenstein’s book, The Qualities That Bear on Presidential Performance , there are 6 things that make a great President. They are public communication, organizational capacity, political skill, vision, cognitive style, and emotional intelligence.
Let’s see, public communication. I have to give Obama that one, he is right up there with Hitler when it comes to lying to his people and have them rallying behind their leader.
Organizational capacity: I would say he has done a decent enough job organizing his administration effectively.
Political skill: He fails miserably on this one. It would help if he actually had some experience.
Vision: This one is tricky. He won the election by giving us a visual oh how he was going to make this country great again. Too bad he did not follow through on any of his promises.
Cognitive skill: I would have to say Obama aces this one. He can memorize what others tell him to say. Well either that or he is good at reading a teleprompter.
Emotional intelligence: I would say he has a decent amount of control at this one.
What do you think? Do you agree with me that this President does not have a backbone?
