White House Insider On Obama: The President Is Losing It

Well this "insider" may not say that he's going crazy, it just means that he's largely in out of depth in his current position. Seems a shame too as this individual seems to believe Obama is a great campaigner. He really is, but governing is not for him apparently.

This quote seems almost similar to another politico who didn't like governing:
So if Obama doesn’t appear interested in the job of president, what does he do day after day? Well, he takes his meetings just like any other president would, though even then, he seems to lack a certain focus and on a few occasions, actually leaves with the directive that be given a summary of the meeting at a later date. I hear he plays a lot of golf, and watches a lot of television – ESPN mainly. I’ll tell you this – if you want to see President Obama get excited about a conversation, turn it to sports. That gets him interested. You start talking about Congress, or some policy, and he just kinda turns off. It’s really very strange. I mean, we were all led to believe that this guy was some kind of intellectual giant, right? Ivy League and all that. Well, that is not what I saw. Barack Obama doesn’t have a whole lot of intellectual curiosity. When he is off script, he is what I call a real “slow talker”. Lots of ummms, and lots of time in between answers where you can almost see the little wheel in his head turning very slowly. I am not going to say the president is a dumb man, because he is not, but yeah, there was a definite letdown when you actually hear him talking without the script.
Ironically enough as I write this I'm watching Fox Report with Shepard Smith  and they got on the subject of the recall amendent to our state constituion that would only apply to the state's governorship. They mentioned by name our very own Ousted governor Rod Blagojevich. And that's the politico who didn't like governing.

Well outside of our state you may not know how badly he governed Illinois. Many would consider him a lightweight. He also had the best education having a Northwestern University degree although not as prestigious a law degree. Still he loved to talk sports especially as Chicago Cubs fan although he turned around and attempted to extort the Cubs' then owner, Tribune Company, for better press coverage like I would imagine a banana republic dictator would.

Well enough about Blago. :P

Does this insider think that President Obama should remain as President for another term?
But would another four years of an Obama presidency be the best thing for America? (Long pause) Now that is a much more interesting question right there, and a question I think more and more Democrat Party insiders are asking themselves these days, myself included. I am going to come right out and say it – No. Obama is not up to the job of being president. He simply doesn’t seem to care about the work involved. You want to know what? Obama is lazy. He really is. And it is getting worse and worse. Would another four years of Obama be the best thing for America? No it would not. What this country needs is a president who is focused on the job more than on themselves. Obama is not that individual. I actually hope he doesn’t run again. Looking back, as much fun as the campaign in 2008 was, Hillary Clinton should have been the nominee. Hillary was ready to be president. Obama was not ready. He had never lost a campaign. Everything was handed to him. He doesn’t really understand the idea of work – real, hard, get your heart and soul into it work. And frankly, that is very disappointing to a whole lot of us…
OK, this is a good article and I'm not going to excerpt too much out of it. I couldn't vote for him two years ago, doesn't look like I can vote for him in two years. He created an excited environment out there in 2008, but it might have been about President Bush more than anything. I wonder what his support is on America's college campus these days?

Are the men of Morehouse or the ladies of Spelman or even the co-ed of Clark Atlanta University still enthused about our 1st Black President of the United States?

Also look for anything on Obama's relationship with his wife, his relationship with his Vice President, in addition to his Secretary of State and her husband of course we know who he is. :P
