Ideology not so much, now competence

Michael Barone notes Obama has already lost the majority of the public on ideology. Now he's losing their confidence in his competence. This echoes Peggy Noonan's latest columnn: "He was supposed to be competent." And Don Surber opines the president has faced 4 crises, and failed each time.

In the words of Vizzini in "The Princess Bride": "You were supposed to be this great thing."

Expectations were unrealistically high for Barack Obama. No one (except the real Messiah) could have met them. No surprise he has failed. If we are now disillusioned, shame on us for being "illusioned" in the first place.
