Democrats uneasy about Obama’s performance so far

It’s about time someone besides conservatives realized that the first 50 days of this man’s presidency has been spectacularly less than adequate. During the campaign, his lack of experience and accomplishments were alarming. Now we’re seeing what an empty suit looks like as President. It’s bad; and some Democrats are finally calling it.

Warren Buffet: some say he’s the smartest investor in the world. He’s a big Obama supporter and he has some things to say.

I think–I think a lot of things should be–job one is to win the war, job–the economic war, job two is to win the economic war, and job three. And you can’t expect people to unite behind you if you’re trying to jam a whole bunch of things down their throat. So I would–I would absolutely say for the–for the interim, till we get this one solved, I would not be pushing a lot of things that are–you know are contentious, and I also–I also would do no finger-pointing whatsoever. I would–you know, I would not say, you know, `George’–`the previous administration got us into this.’ Forget it.

On the economy:

It’s fallen off a cliff, and not only has the economy slowed down a lot, people have really changed their behavior like nothing I’ve ever seen.

He also doesn’t agree with Obama on EFCA or the criticism of executives that use corporate jets.

This Obama supporter, Camille Paglia, can’t believe Obama and his staff personally attacked Rush Limbaugh.

Case in point: The orchestrated attack on radio host Rush Limbaugh, which has made the White House look like an oafish bunch of drunken frat boys. I returned from carnival in Brazil (more on that shortly) to find the Limbaugh affair in full flower. Has the administration gone mad? This entire fracas was set off by the president himself, who lowered his office by targeting a private citizen by name. Limbaugh had every right to counterattack, which he did with gusto. Why have so many Democrats abandoned the hallowed principle of free speech? Limbaugh, like our own liberal culture hero Lenny Bruce, is a professional commentator who can be as rude and crude as he wants.

There are plenty reasons to be upset with this administration. As Ed @ Hot Air puts it:

People find him [Obama] lacking because he keeps failing on tasks large and small.  Three Cabinet appointments have gone under in less than two months, as have other senior staff assignments.  He promised an economic plan from Tim Geithner during his first press conference, only to have Geithner appear the next day and say that the dog ate his homework.  The administration has still failed to roll out the details of TARP II, the auto bailouts, and the full plans for the mortgage relief plan, despite multiple promises to deliver them.  His failure to understand protocol during Gordon Brown’s visit embarrassed the US and the Washington establishment, which knew full well how insultingly Obama treated the British Prime Minister.

American Thinker says this is just the folly of voting for an untested, unaccomplished, inexperienced non-leader “coming home to roost.”
