- The release of the Bob Woodward book showed Obama disinterested in the give-and-take that is part and parcel of negotiating with Congress.
- The president jetted off to a campaign event in Las Vegas the day after the attacks on our embassy in Cairo and the murder of our ambassador in Libya.
- In an interview with David Letterman, Obama failed to identify the amount of the national debt.
- He dissembled on immigration reform in the Univision townhall, blaming Republicans for his failure when his party controlled Congress for the time period in question (his first year in office); Obama neither introduced such reform legislation nor did he provide a framework within which Congress should work, nor did he press Congress to act.
- In that same townhall, the Democrat “falsely claimed that the [Fast and Furious] program began under President George W. Bush.” There has been almost no legacy media followup on the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report on the gunrunning scandal, a report which calls into question the managerial competence of Attorney General Holder and reminds us that some in the administration did not cooperate with investigators.
- He descrribed increasing violence in the Middle East, including the murder of our Ambassador to Libya” as “bumps in the road.” And that’s just one of his “gaffes” in the administration’s jumbled response to those attacks.
- When in New York to address the United Nations, he chose to go in the View where he described himself as “eye candy”, but failed to meet with world leaders in the Big Apple for the opening of the the world body.

***Can you believe this? The Obama Administration is urging contractors not to warn of layoffs.
The Obama administration has doubled down on its plea to defense contractors not to warn employees about possible layoffs due to looming budget cuts -- going so far as to offer to cover legal fees in compensation challenges.
The move drew a stern rebuke Friday from South Dakota Republican Sen. John Thune, since federal law requires employers to give notice if mass layoffs are likely.
"For the second time, the Obama administration has now encouraged government contractors to ignore the WARN Act and hold off on warning employees about possible layoffs due to the looming sequestration cuts,” Thune, lead author of the Sequestration Transparency Act, said Friday.
