Obama As Electoral Gamer
By now it has been manifest that Barack Obama is incompetent at governing. An insightful look at why is shown in this piece on Obama's paralysis on the Keystone Pipeline that shows that Obama's problems are structural (though I disagree with the writer's assertion that it isn't ideological, since the leftism permeating Obama has been a consistent failure then and now) in that he's all about winning elections - and doing so by "gaming" the system as opposed to winning on his own merits; this showed in his consistent debating losses and also how he actually won the 2008 election. He is the ultimate narcissist.
