The Competency of Obama

From IMAO. Heh.

People keep getting stumped when asked to name an accomplishment of Barack Obama, so I thought I'd help. Barack Obama has been a U.S. Senator for a little over three years now. In that time, there have been 1,114 votes. That's almost one vote a day. That means about once a day, Obama has had to stand up and decide whether to vote "yea" or "nay"... or "present" (he likes present, especially for the tough votes; maybe he didn't know how to vote, but at least he felt strongly enough to show up). Despite that grueling schedule, Obama has only missed about a sixth of those votes. Now most of that has been in the last year where he's missed over a third of the votes, but that's because after his first two years of "yea," "nay," and "present" voting, he felt he was good enough to be president. Some of you may say that doesn't excuse him of not showing up for crucial bills to vote "present," but I think Obama has clearly already displayed his competency at voting on stuff, and I don't know what more you want from him. It's time we give him more responsibility... such as maybe a job where he has four multiple choice answers to questions (with the fourth answer being "I don't know" -- he'll like that one). And isn't that essentially what the job of U.S. President is?

I'm really asking; I have no idea. I've never been president.

Hi. :) I friended you a while back and have been enjoying your posts. Would you be interested in joining a closed community for conservatives? We think of it as a refuge from LJ's massive liberal population. Most of us have many liberal friends and love them, but sometimes we need a place to vent/express ourselves without worrying about being attacked for our views. Anyway, if you'd like to join us, comment here and I will send you an Invite. And if not, no big deal, I'll still enjoy your posts here. Have a good night.
Obama competency
My major problem with Obama (although i have many others)
is that in my opinion he is not in any way competent to
be the Commander in Chief especially in a time of war.
He is not fit for that job. His wifes' stupid remark
this week about only now being proud of America for the first time in her adult life shows their mindset. He even has refused to wear a flag pin and gave a lame excuse for not doing so. I'm a conservative Democrat who is going to vote Republican. God help us all if Obama wins.
