    ... And here’s the essential problem with Barack Obama’s resume, as opposed to, say, Abraham Lincoln’s, who also was unprepared to become president of the United States, but made up for it with ability: Obama has spent his whole life being against stuff, protesting against powers higher than himself, blaming those in control.

    Lincoln on the other hand showed that he had rare executive ability. He may not have always gotten things done correctly, but he did get things done.

    He was a constructive member of his community, and conservative in the sense that he sought to “conserve” liberty; even if his vision of liberty was radical for his time.

    “Executive force and vigor are rare qualities,” Lincoln’s Secretary of State, and the man most likely to have been the Republican nominee were it not for Lincoln, William H. Seward, wrote in 1861.“The President is the best of us."

    No one would say that about Obama. What he lacks in ability he compensates for in ignorance of the real world with temper tantrums and demands and discord.

    That works as a community organizer, but doesn’t work for the man-who-would-be-president.

    A "Great Pretender" indeed ...

    Pretender to the presidency.

    Pretender to competence.

    Pretender to manhood.

    An otherwise empty suit pretending to be human.
