CNN’s Peter Hamby reveals that it has dawned on at least one of Barack Obama’s former aides, that the president isn’t very good at his job.

“I talked to a former Obama White House person, just before Christmas, when Obama was sort of adrift, figuring out what to do, his poll numbers were pretty low,” Hamby said. “And he said, ‘Look, the president needs to find an issue to campaign on. This is what he’s good at. He’s really good at campaigning. Maybe not governing,’ according to this Democrat.”

That Democrat must have been the Deputy Senior Undersecretary for the Bleeding Obvious.

These comments came just before Christmas, at a time when President Obama and some Democrats had already started to try to push Obamacare’s rolling disaster out of the headlines by pushing for a national minimum wage hike. So, message received and acted upon.

So much for the Bully Pulpit that T.R. pounded all through his two terms.

Maybe he should have stuck with vague propaganda buzzwords like "Hope" and "Change," or concepts like "fundamentally transforming America." When he started tying his reputation to concrete achievements, that's when the glamour started to wear off.

This should strike fear in the heart of every sane person. Obama now has his own campaign machine (OFA), billionaire lifestyle and, once leaving office, nothing better to do. Every sociopathic candidate with deep pockets will be buttering up to OFA in order to get elected. Who cares if said candidate is good - he's got an election to win!

But weren't we told he's smarter than everyone else? How could he NOT be good at governing? Perhaps b/c he had no experience, no leadership skills & no competence . . . . . .

Is there any way we can convince him to campaign against global warming?
