Remember in November, 2006, when the Democrats got control of Congress, Nancy Pelosi, the future Speaker of the House, said that she was going to end the “Culture of Corruption” that was permeating Wash. D.C.? Well, they failed miserably at that task, so since that time and with the election of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008, a new culture has come about, it is called the “Culture of Incompetence”. It has resulted in the mismanagement of the federal bureaucracy, the economy, and the ballooning deficit.

During the past couple of years, it seems no matter what Obama or the Democrats touch or propose, it is not in the best interests of America. The people who are in charge in the Congress and Senate, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid, are two of the biggest buffoons who have ever occupied the seats of power in the House and Senate. The verbal gaffes and nonsensical statements made by these two make George W. Bush look like a Rhodes Scholar. Princess Nancy even has at her command a 747 plane to fly her and her cronies back and forth to California, like royalty, and to stops around the world - the plane has a name, it is called “BOTOX ONE”.

The seeds of incompetence were started to be sown right after the inauguration of Obama. He went on a binge of hiring “Czars” to head various task forces within the government structure. These unelected, unvetted bureaucrats came in all shapes, sizes and ideologies, but were mainly radical friends and associates of Obama and his closest advisors, Rahm “Rambo” Emanuel and left-leaning lobbyist David Axelrod. Some of his appointees even had backgrounds in the CPUSA (Communist Party of the USA), some were radical academics, and some were cronies from his shady Chicago days.

So instead of trying to overcome the ravages of the recession, we found our selves in, he immediately embarked on a highly divisive and expensive health care bill, which is now, after being passed, being challenged in the courts as being unconstitutional. He must’ve been following the advice of Rambo Emanuel, who once said that,” you shouldn’t let a crisis go to waste” (in order to get difficult policies passed into law). He was able to bribe, cajole, and arm-twist to get passage of this health care monstrosity, but it took him over a year and lots of political capital to accomplish that. Over 60% of the people, today, want to repeal this health care bill.

In addition, he pushed through passage of a $780 billion “stimulus” package which didn’t do much to stimulate the economy, but it did stimulate our ballooning budget deficit to the tune of over $1 trillion a year for as long as the eye can see. He makes Bernie Madoff look like piker. The bankrupting of our economy is a blatant case of “incompetentcy” which our children and grandchildren will have to pay for sometime in the future, if at all.

I guess you could say that you should never underestimate the stupidity of the liberal Democrats. If a free lunch could be screwed up, they are the one’s to achieve that infamous result.

Finally, the Gulf oil spill has really shown up the incompetence of Obama and the Democrats. Although you can’t accuse Obama of causing the oil spill, you can hold him accountable for the resulting devastation of letting that oil reach our beaches and marshlands. He said he was in “charge” since day #1, but still, through his incompetence, he never used all the resources that were available to him to keep the oil from reaching land.

Obama and the Democrats will pay a big political price at the polls this coming November. Maybe then we could reverse the “Culture of Incompetence” that permeates our government today.

In the words of that famous philosopher, Forrest Gump, "Stupid is that stupid does". Never have we seen such incompetence in our government as we have seen with the "Three Stooges" in charge (Obama, Pelosi, and Reid) of our government. It does seem that the "Keystone Kops" are setting and making our policies that are slowly screwing up our once great economy. Let's hope we can survive until we throw the bums out this coming November.
