A friend has criticized me. . .

February 20, 2010

. . . for, perhaps, making too much of this administration’s apparent inability to handle anything resembling protocol, but after the giving the DVD’s that didn’t work to Great Britain, the bro-shake with Chavez, the party-crashers, and now the Dalai Lama, you kind of have to see a pattern.

I believe his criticism will be that these are superficial sorts of criticisms, while it’s policy differences that matter. Now, as you probably know, I have no end of policy differences with this President. So, I’m pretty much covered there. But there’s always two sides of a policy debate. So, it’s difficult to judge someone’s competence this way. You can just agree or disagree.

In these other matters, one can question the administration’s competence. They just don’t know what they’re doing, and they don’t really seem to care, which is among the things that should worry us. We haven’t seen this kind of incompetence since the Carter administration hired The Captain and Tenille to perform for Helmut Schmidt or the President himself related an anecdote regarding getting Montezuma’s revenge in a speech before the President (Portillo) of Mexico.

Hmmm. . . Carter. . . Obama. . .Connecting the dots?
