Is The BHO Administration Incompetent?

Ya think?

Even some Democrats are starting to question this administration's ability to govern.

From the March 15, 2009 article "More than a bad day: Worries grow that Barack Obama & Co. have a competence problem":
Not long ago, after a string of especially bad days for the Obama administration, a veteran Democratic pol approached me with a pained look on his face and asked, "Do you think they know what they're doing?"

The question caught me off guard because the man is a well-known Obama supporter. As we talked, I quickly realized his asking suggested his own considerable doubts.

Yes, it's early, but an eerily familiar feeling is spreading across party lines and seeping into the national conversation. It's a nagging doubt about the competency of the White House.
Read the list of complaints and concerns, at the point of a mere sixty days of the BHO administration.

BHO's Teflon coating is wearing thin elsewhere, too. From the March 12, 2009 lead editorial in the Washington Post:
LIKE A DIETER who allows himself just one more slice of cake before starting to count calories, President Obama signed the $410 billion omnibus spending bill, then pledged to get tough on congressional earmark spending -- next time. "This piece of legislation must mark an end to the old way of doing business," Mr. Obama announced. As with the dieter, skepticism is appropriate. The old way was supposed to have ended already.


...[E]armarks are symbols of broader indiscipline, and they also are conducive to corruption. So it was disappointing that Mr. Obama shied away from a tougher stance even as he congratulated himself for doing more.
When cult followers start getting disappointed in their leader, look out. The pendulum will swing to the opposite side.

I can't wait for the BHO Cult to start screeching. Heh.
