"But Mr. Obama was supposed to be competent."
Let's wind the clock back to early 2008. You're taking the measure of Sen. Obama, trying to figure out what kind of president he might make. Try coming up with three accomplishments of his that would suggest he was a competent manager. No? Okay, try two? Still nothing?
Fine, let's shift the emphasis off managerial competence and just look for general, professional achievements. Aside from getting new jobs, had the young senator ever actually accomplished anything?
Well, there was that best-selling book, I suppose. Although the story of how it got written doesn't indicate an awesome amount of competence.
