Obama Administration Continues To Set Records In Incompetence

November 10, 2009

This is rather surprising – and that’s coming from a guy who is convinced that the Obama administration is a ship full of fools moronically leading us into every iceberg in their path.

Behind Schedule

Nearly 200 top positions in the administration remain vacant a full year after President Obama was elected. USA Today reports the backlog puts President Obama behind his predecessors in terms of the amount of time taken to fill key jobs.

The Senate has confirmed 366 Obama nominees, compared with 421 at this point for President George W. Bush and 379 for President Clinton. New York University professor Paul Light, a federal bureaucracy expert, says: “Obama is well on pace right now to set a new record in terms of lateness.”

There is no one permanently in charge of Medicare or Medicaid at a time when the president is pushing health care reform in Congress. Mark McClellan, a former administrator for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, says the timing isn’t good, “without a permanent administrator in place.”

Obama has czars coming out of his ears.  He’s got more democracy-ignoring czars than 19th century Russia.  But apparently no time to appoint the people whom he actually SHOULD have appointed.  Go figure.

Given the fact that he has larger margins of control in the Senate than anybody since Jimmy Carter hamstrung the country in 1976, it is appalling that he has been so unable to send quality nominees to a body that would quickly rubber stamp them.

I mean, they even confirmed John Holdren, the guy who wants to put sterilants in your drinking water and forcibly abort your children under the population-control laws he wants to impose.  And I kid you not.

The biggest joke of all is in the last paragraph.  I mean, think about it: Barack Hussein is so eager to totally transform the health care system into the next apparatus of the Marxist state he’s dreaming about that he hasn’t bothered to actually put anyone in charge over the government health care that we already HAVE.

This should be a further tip-off that Obama is disinterested in running the country.  He’d much rather radically change it altogether.

Pretty appalling stuff from a pretty pathetic leader.
