What we are actually watching is the most incompetent, inexperienced, in over his head, out of his league manager of our national affairs ever in this nation's history. Barack Obama was widely known to have the absolute thinnest, most pathetic, skinniest resume of anyone ever seeking the presidency, but the voting public overlooked all of this when it came time to pull the lever (twice), because he spoke very well, and could pronounce the word 'nuclear' ('noo-klee-er,' and not 'noo-kyoo-lar'). Quite the accomplishment, if you ask me (but ask him to pronounce the word 'corps', and see what you get). .
Turns out the guy can't manage his way out of a wet paper bag, and why should anyone be surprised? This incompetent, arrogant foolish moron has never managed anything in his entire life, not even a lemonade stand. He has held absolutely no executive positions in his existence on this planet. How can we expect a community organizer (read: rabblerouser) to get our nations' health care system and insurance industry running like a well oiled machine? Because we overlooked this obvious inexperience when we elected this guy (twice), and we are now paying the piper.
He has expected to have things go well only on the basis that he wants them to go well, and tells everyone as much. He has never had to actually make decisions as to how best to solve problems, bring assets to bear and determine which assets to put more here and less there, etc. You know, things that even a simple lemonade stand owner understands. And yet these basic economic principles elude Obama's understanding completely.
'Obama's Lemonade Stand' would have been set up roughly like this: shake down some successful lemonade stands down the street for his supplies, such as lemon juice, sugar, ice cubes and water. If they don't provide it, he will get the community to march on them for reasons of social injustice, corporate greed, etc. Then he will set his prices according to a progressive agenda: poor people get it free. Rich people will pay $1,000.00 per glass. It's only fair, everyone knows that. Once word gets out among the poor people that there's free lemonade afoot, Obama's stand will be flooded with 'patrons.' Exactly like the over representation of Medicaid signups for Obamacare, the 'takers' out of the system. Word also gets out among the rich folk that Obama is gouging them by charging $1,000 for one lousy glass of lemonade, and they avoid the stand, much akin to the 'makers,' the ones who have to fund all of this free medical care are avoiding signing up for Obamacare. The analogy is scary correct. And I continue....
Now Obama has lots (and LOTS) of demand for lemonade, and yet no revenue to show for his efforts. He needs more supplies, but the nearby lemonade stands have been bled dry by Obama's incessant shake downs, and have closed their doors. To make up for this lack of revenue, ever more shake downs of increasingly distant but successful lemonade stands for his growing demand of lemonade is arranged. In the long run, as long as there are more successful stands to shake down to keep supplies flowing, things will work out just fine at 'Obama's Lemonade Stand' : that is, until there are no more successful lemonade stands anywhere to shake down. But he has never arrived at that point yet in his sophomoric experience, and accordingly thinks he can run America in much the same way.
Right in front of America's eyes, Obama's abysmal lack of experience in managing anything has come to the surface when his problem solving rhetoric was clear for everyone to see: solving the Gulf oil spill a while back by decree - 'plug the damn hole.' There you have it. Done deal, right?
When the solution by decree doesn't work (which it won't, duh), Plan B consists of sending a few battalions of attorneys, armed to the teeth with briefcases, to figure out whom to sue. Why should we expect anything else out of this guy? We shouldn't. And as we all know, and especially Obama's mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright knows, 'America's chickens have come home to roost.' We elected a boob (twice) who doesn't know how to do anything except cause chaos, and we are getting what we elected: a guy who couldn't even run a lemonade stand and who is now in charge of our health care system and the insurance industry..
Perhaps a lesson has been learned here. I certainly hope that the low information crowd is starting to get it, now. Now that THEY are feeling the pain caused by this incompetent, arrogant boob who thinks he knows everything, but knows nothing.
