So says Glenn Reynolds regarding Obama’s Katrina. Hard to argue the fact that there seems to be one common denominator to the problems we are facing in America these days.
Well, according to Bill Press, the problem is not Obama. The problem is Americans.
I think this says more about the American people than it does about President Obama. I think it just shows once again that the American people are spoiled. Basically, spoiled– as a people, we are too critical. We are quick to rush to judgment, we are too negative, we are too impatient. Especially impatient. We want it all solved yesterday, and if you don’t, I don’t care who you are — get out of the way.
And again, basically spoiled. To the point where it makes me wonder if it’s even possible to govern today. I gotta tell you, I don’t think Abraham Lincoln — who certainly didn’t get everything right the first time — could govern today. I’m not sure Franklin Roosevelt could govern today, the way we are again. Just about like spoiled children. And it’s Americans, and it’s the media, and if we don’t get instant gratification, then screw you is basically our attitude.
Well, ok then. I’m spoiled for wanting competent leadership. Mianhamneeda.
Then again, Charles Krauthammer takes a look at the man behind the curtain and finds an empty suit. All I can say in response is: Krauthammer, grow up and stop acting like a spoiled child!”
And pass me some more of that Kool-Aid.
