There is a very interesting editorial today in the New York Daily News regarding the rocky first few weeks of Obama’s presidency. Michael Goodwin seems to think it is beyond just having a bad day, and it seems there are quite a few other folks, including Democrats, that are starting to worry about the competency of this administration.
Not long ago, after a string of especially bad days for the Obama administration, a veteran Democratic pol approached me with a pained look on his face and asked, “Do you think they know what they’re doing?”
The question caught me off guard because the man is a well-known Obama supporter. As we talked, I quickly realized his asking suggested his own considerable doubts.
Yes, it’s early, but an eerily familiar feeling is spreading across party lines and seeping into the national conversation. It’s a nagging doubt about the competency of the White House.
I guess the empty suit did not miraculously fill itself on January 20th.
