Pres. Obama

OK, set aside for the moment his inability to staff the executive branch, his inept handling of the economy and his inability to speak without a teleprompter.

First he snubs Prime Minister Gordon by refusing to hold a traditional press conference, then he embarrasses the United States by giving him a collection of DVDs...that don't even work in England! What the hell? Could you imagine the hue and cry if Pres. Bush had done something so incompetent? Where are the cute segments on SNL or The Daily Show? Where is Olbermann's self-righteous rant?

Now my first thought was it was just one more example of Democratic incompetence. But someone on another blog brought up a good point: What happened to the White House protocol office? There is supposed to be a group of non-political professionals in the White House that stops this type of Mickey Mouse nonsense from happening. The way I see it, one of three things happened:

1) Obama staffers ignored the White House protocol professionals and/or left them out of the loop.

2) The White House protocol office allowed the gaffe to occur for whatever reason.

3) The Obama administration took a page out of the Clinton administration playbook and replaced the non-partisan professionals with incompetent political appointees.

Whatever happened, it says something interesting about the Obama administration, something much more serious than just a gaffe.

Next we turn to Pres. Obama's appearance on The Tonight Show. (Note to Pres. Obama: the campaign is won) Can you imagine the howls of outrage if Pres. Bush had made that Special Olympics comment? Instead the MSM is rallying around Pres. Obama to defend him.

Every one of you who voted for Obama has some 'splaining to do.
