Posted on 07/31/2011 6:08:12 AM PDT by MontaniSemperLiberi
Mika heard two days ago on Capitol Hill Democrats all saying the same thing. And that is, this president has been invisible, he is not a leader. They said this all behind closed doors. Democratic leaders, Democratic rank-and-file.

The worm has turned. Perhaps even Bo the water dog will vote Republican. With the debt negotiations, the Republicans screwed the country but they got what they wanted, a lame duck Obama.
PS - This is a short clip from the larger "Obama is a Loser" Noonan discussion.
I believe they refer to it as “leading from behind”.
Isn’t that what they wanted?
A president that could read what they wrote for him?
The path of least resistance
A week or so ago there were rumors that the Capitol Hill leadership [both parties] were disgusted and frustrated about trying to negotiate with Obama, so they met in secret — sans Obama — to hash out a budget ceiling deal.
I still maintain that, if the economy remains this bad by early next year, Obama will be forced to not seek a 2nd term — by the Dems. [Shades of LBJ]
They know they can’t win if unemployment is still well over 8%, the recession is continuing, etc. Their only ‘blessing’ at present is that inflation/interest rates have stayed low and off the radar.
After seeing this thread, I am even more convinced that the Dems are trying to find a way to unseat Obama but retain the White House.
And that is, this president has been invisible, he is not a leader. They said this all behind closed doors. Democratic leaders, Democratic rank-and-file.
Yet, they, DEMS and LSM, all followed him and told the lemmings to follow him. And worst of all, lots of republican stayed home on election day because McCain was not conservative enough.
At risk of repeating myself, I’d rather have a republican-lite or a RINO in office over any democRAT.
The pictures I've seen of BO & Bo going for a walk .... Bo is always in the lead.
The man is a disgrace to his race. The human race.
Obama’s transparency has been obvious from the beginning to anyone who wished to look.
Whether or not one agreed with liberalism, the fact that this fellow was vapid, and not a quick thinker - or even just a thinker at all - was there for all to see.
Perhaps it now appears obvious, but a man who names his dog after himself has serious issues with narcissism.
you know, I'd never seen the " lame stream media" defined as such in initials (LSM) but I knew exactly what it meant .
For some reason, the “invisilble” leadership comments brought to mind John Kerry. If he had been elected, we’d have gone through this years earlier. And who would have been the man behind him pulling the strings. The same one that’s pulling Obama’s strings?
“Dems are trying to find a way to unseat Obama but retain the White House.”
Tie him to Operation Fast And Furious and he’s gone. Or any of several other outrages.
Mika was not happy with Joe sharing that. She is one of those who will ride the Obama ship to the bottom of the ocean.
I deem it “following from the front”: looks like he’s in charge, but keeps looking back for direction from those behind him.
I think there are a lot of games going on.
One game is that the short term deal ($1T now, $1.5T when it runs out) is advantageous to those worried about primary challengers, Republican and Democrat. I think Obama overplayed his hand when he demanded $1.2T in taxes which would have weakened Republican incumbents but not Democrat incumbents. The compromise let’s them both get past their primaries before voting again.
If the national security council was aware of fast and furious, there won’t be a democrat left who could hold the white house.
Obama is a very visible FAILURE.
