The more the general public is educated about the failings of our president, the better. The Obama administration and its minions have obviously declared its aim to be be suppression of dissent hence we are in a culture that is obsessed with the rock star Obama. It is no surprise that we are offered remarkably little in the way criticism of our Dear Leader. Blissful ignorance is the atmosphere and spirit that we are beginning to embrace. When it comes to out president behavior which would have once been thought of as inexperience is becoming the acceptable standard. More problematic is how the Obamacrats have become willing and uncompensated partners in crime with the liberal media. The outward opposition to Kool Aid dispensed conformity is shown primarily through the lens of vigilant conservatives who are marginalized by the left as “radical right wing attacks”. But remember logic has no function with these guys.
Last night, I was reading an article from Town Hall.com that should get more attention as proof of Barack Obama’s lack of experience:

Obama Lets Congress — and Lobbyists — Do the Work
Barack Obama spelled out his positions on the issues during the campaign, but is letting members of Congress do almost all the heavy lifting now that he’s in office.
Thus the $787 billion stimulus package was largely written by members of the Appropriations committees, with concessions made to the three Republicans whose votes were needed in the Senate. Health care bills are now being fleshed out by Chairman Max Baucus and ranking Republican Charles E. Grassley in the Senate Finance Committee, and by Democratic committee chairmen in the House. The administration has proposed cap-and-trade legislation to limit carbon dioxide emissions, but the sole working draft made public has come from House committee chairmen Henry A. Waxman and Edward J. Markey.
For those who remember Obama’s promise to be a transformative leader, it comes as a surprise to see such deference to Congress. Obama insiders explain that when Hillary Clinton tried to draft a health care bill without input from Congress, the project crashed and burned.
Obamabot: Now don’t you think Michael Barone is being a little hard on Dear Leader? Obama was a senator so he must possess some knowledge of authoring a piece of legislation. Right?
One might add that Obama never acquired much legislative expertise in his three years and 10 months as a senator, most of which he spent campaigning for president. Better, perhaps, to leave it to Congress, where Democratic senators have considerable experience legislating and the relevant House committees are led by experienced and unusually competent chairmen.
Obamabot: Okay, so what? Congress is more than capable of taking care of those things
….Barone continues by analyzing the consequences of previous men in the oval office who passed the buck to Congress. He concluded by stating that this was NOT the change that we expected from President Obama.
In the meantime, we are presented with a scene that would have delighted Mark Twain. A president who campaigned for office promising to banish lobbyists from his midst has left it in the hands of Congress to work out all the details of complex legislation that would have enormous effects on economic activities of all sorts. The entirely predictable result is a profusion of lobbyists such as Washington has never seen. Quite an accomplishment for the candidate who promised hope and change.
