One of the reason I’ve never been high on Obama is that I don’t think he’s capable. He’s certainly never demonstrated excellence at running an organization. And by organization, I mean an organization of directors. That is, a team of managers who themselves manage managers who AGAIN, have a team of people.
Obama has never been held responsible for meeting organizational milestones. Of urging teams of people with competing priorities and views of success. Obama hasn’t managed money, a bottom line or deadlines.
I manage people. And I can’t imagine Barack Obama being hired as a 2nd or 3rd level manager. He simply doesn’t bring any experience to the table.
Romney, of course, has this in spades.
But THIS is frustrating:
Mitt Romney on Tuesday accused the media of looking to protect President Obama by focusing on the GOP candidate’s high-profile gaffes during his week-long foreign tour rather than more substantive policy issues he discussed.
“I realize that there will be some in the fourth estate or in whichever estate who are far more interested in finding something to write about that is unrelated to the economy, to geo-politics, to the threat of war, to the reality of conflict in Afghanistan today, to a nuclearization of Iran,” Romney told Fox News. “They’ll instead try to find anything else to divert from the fact that these last four years have been tough years for our country.”
Even if true, and I’m sympathetic to the claim, complaining about it is nonsensical. It’s a tactic that doesn’t get anything done, weakens the candidate and takes away from the real message.
