Took this paragraph from an article by Liberal Columnist Ron Fournier in the Liberal National Journal
I share this email to make the broader point and to offer a disclosure: In the 18 months since I began
writing columns focused on the presidency, virtually every post critical of Obama has originated from
conversations with Democrats. Members of Congress, consultants, pollsters, lobbyists, and executives
at think tanks, these Democrats are my Obama-whispers. They respect and admire Obama, but believe
that his presidency has been damaged by his shortcomings as a leader; his inattention to details of governing;
his disengagement from the political process and from the public; his unwillingness to learn on the job; and
his failure to surround himself with top-shelf advisers who are willing to challenge their boss as well as their
own preconceived notions.
“they respect and admire Obama, but”
After the “but” they go on to explain what a failure Obama is as a President. Well then, on what basis
is it that they “respect and admire” him? Is it the fact that a smooth talking Marxist scam artist with
a swagger became President? Well, I do have to admit that is pretty incredible, but it reflects poorly
on their judgement and character. There is no way this man was qualified to be President. Being articulate,
black, and cool isn’t much of a resume for a President of the United States.
