According to Gallup, when asked if Obama can manage government effectively, only 39% say yes, 60% say no. When asked if he has a clear plan for solving the country’s problems, 34% say yes, 65% say no.

These numbers are much worse than you think, since about 25%-30% of Americans will support Obama no matter what he does or how incompetent he gets. That means that you’re looking at almost 100% of everyone else thinking Obama doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing.

Which of course, he doesn’t. A great campaigner who makes great speeches does not a good manager make.

The last three ridiculous presidents we’ve had (Clinton, younger Bush, and Obama) have more than convinced me that we need a parliamentary system where the prime minister is appointed by majority representation in parliament rather than a direct vote or electoral college vote by easily deluded, starry-eyed morons, um, I mean voters.

YES, there are lots of problems with a parliamentary system too. Lots. It would still be better on the overall than the system we have now.

A further improvement would a system of government where there is no president or prime minister at all, but that gets a little more complicated. Maybe I’ll talk about that in a future post.

For three presidents in a row now, each one has been worse than the last. I shudder to think how horrible the next one will be.
