I have many criticisms of President Obama. In light of recent events, I would like to expand upon one in particular.
Barack Obama is a bad manager.
Throughout his presidency, Obama has been unable to effectively manage the federal government, including people who work directly for him.
His ineffectiveness as a manager has been magnified recently as the scandal involving the General Services Administration.
Under his watch, government employees used taxpayer money for over-the-top parties during a conference in Las Vegas, a city he demonized and criticized corporations for holding conventions in.
The administration's defense is that these kinds of parties took place during previous administrations. Even if that's true, which it is not, Barack Obama promised us change and a more transparent government.
This country has changed, but not for the better.
There are more examples of bad leadership under Barack Obama.
Operation Fast and Furious, an operation which should have never taken place to begin with, was a miserable failure and Attorney General Eric Holder still has not been held accountable.
The Senate still has not passed a budget in over 1,000 days, but the President blames Republicans, who do not control the Senate. Instead, he directs Harry Reid to kill every bill passed by the House of Representatives before it even gets debated by the Senate.
In a time when Americans are paying $4.00 for a gallon of gasoline, the President refuses to take the necessary steps to lower energy prices. Instead, he lies to us about how oil production has increased under his administration.
You see, the way Barack Obama's brain works is that if something goes wrong, it's the prior administration's fault. But if something goes right, it's all thanks to him.
Look at how he and his supporters take credit for killing Osama Bin Laden. The man would have been killed regardless of who was President.
In fact, Joe Biden is quoted as saying that the President gave a "no go" on the operation before he was able to convince the President otherwise.
Getting back to gas prices; a simple flick of Barack Obama's pen could send gas prices plummeting. If he approves the Keystone XL pipeline, gas prices will fall.
The President, however, does not want lower gas prices. He, and Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, want to price Americans out of the oil market and force them into alternative energy sources.
Obama is in bed with the so-called "green energy" industry. The government gave half of a billion dollars to a company they knew was going out of business. The Solyndra debacle is yet another examples of Obama's failed leadership.
I could go on forever with examples of Obama's failure as a leaders, but all you have to remember is that before becoming President, Obama had never been a leader. This community organizer was never fit to the President.
