Panel: Obama Giving Up on His Job, Doesn’t Know How to Govern

A.B. Stoddard: Obama's attitude 'really troublesome for the American people'

Fox News panelists A.B. Stoddard and Steve Hayes argued Wednesday that Obama brought on his plummeting approval ratings by giving Americans the impression that he has given up on his job.

In a new Quinnipiac poll, Obama came in first as the worst president since World War II.

“The president is giving Americans the sense that, as he gives up on Congress, he’s kind of giving up on his job,” The Hill’s Stoddard said. “They know he’s bolting from the building to go to Starbucks and Chipotle. He’s getting bored in the cocoon, he’s planning his post-presidency.”

Free Beacon editor Matthew Continetti made this argument several weeks ago, writing, “I find nothing paradoxical about Obama’s recent pattern of behavior, nothing mysterious about the golfing, partying, traveling. It is quite obvious: Obama has given up.”

And, like Continetti, Stoddard notes Obama’s new habit of “having lots of dinner parties where he doesn’t talk about policy or politics, but the NBA playoffs–anything but his job.”

“That’s really troublesome for the American people,” Stoddard concluded, “not only because of all the problems we have, but because we’re with him for another more than two years.”

The Weekly Standard’s Steve Hayes concurred, adding, “It is largely because of the president’s flippant attitude towards the presidency. ‘So sue me’–what kind of a president would make that argument? And where he had been buoyed, I think, by the fact that people liked him or people wanted him to succeed, despite the fact that they might have had some questions about his policies, that no longer exists, because the president is behaving the way that he’s behaving.”

Charles Krauthammer said that Americans are just now realizing that campaigning is what Obama does best, and “That could be his only great competence–to campaign, to make speeches.” As a result, “He gave people hope, but he doesn’t know how to govern.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

When you become president based on the whims of the populace, I guess you can quit being president based on your own whims.

Time to get a serious person back in the Oval Office.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

There already -is- a "serious person" sitting not far from the Oval Office.

Her name is Valerie, and she ain't done yet....

Aside: the person actually sitting -in- the Oval Office never was "serious" to begin with...
