    "Your presidency is over" that was Chuck Todd this morning on Morning Joe about a new NBC poll that shows 54% of Americans think President Obama is "unable to lead the country".

    WOW! That was Chuck Todd saying that. And on MSNBC!

    The story is on Huffington Post if anyone wants to google it.

    Yesterday on Morning Joe I heard Joe say that Iraq fooled all of us. Then he played clips of all of the major political figures including Bush, Obama, Hillary, Biden, Hagel...Joe is right, Iraq made fools of all of them.

    No one knows anything about the middle east. Those of us who have lived there know that, our politicians have not yet learned that lesson.

    Joe may be correct about this but he is also an idiot and a fool. I stopped watching his shows several years ago. Although I liked his guests he is nothing more that a pompous arse with the brains of a fool. He actually believes he would be able to become POTUS. Of course there is that small matter if the dead, pregnant aid found in his office back when he was a Congressman but hey, shit happens!

    Yes, Joe may be an idiot and a fool but he certainly did show lots of other idiots and fools on his show.

    From Bush to Obama to Queen Hillary and plenty of others, Iraq made idiots and fools of just about all our so called "leaders".

    ..."pompous arse"... yes we have no shortage of those.

    We have a shortage of many things, but when it comes to ..."pompous arse"... we definitely have an abundance of those.

    I'm not quite getting the picture; the thing is Obama relies way too much on his so called advisers, who according to me are the dumbest asses there ever were in Washington. Figures like McCain , Lisey Graham, Ginrich etc. are the real culprits; they helped Bush start all these wars and have holy faces right now; no one of those idiots dares to admit Bush screwed up royaly with his invasion; however Obama is way too weak to kick these guys in the butt,as well it is time he listens to the reporters on the ground in Iraq instead of listening to the generals who he invited which only know how many badgets stripes, gold bands they have, but certainly don't have a clue on how people in the middle east live, believe, history, backgrounds etc.

    It is time Obama gets real educated advisers who are experts in middle east living and culture and did live there in between the common people; instead of these blowhorns who pretend to know; while they never lived there and have only "American book" knowledge. The present advisers are indeed "pompous arses"'.
    He should invite the reporters who are right in the middle of this conflict; they are the best sourse; not those who surround him only for prestige and ego's; Washington is full of "ego" trippers; it makes me puke.

    Something I remember hearing, is that a lot of presidents have some of the same advisers. For example, George W Bush had an adviser that Obama kept on as his adviser. This concept blows my mind. I forgot which advisers he kept from the previous administration, but why keep any at all?

    Maybe my recent obsession with House of Cards is slanting my response to this, but I think its likely true either way.. I think in some cases Presidents need tried and true people in the White House that can talk to both sides of the aisle. My guess is that blue and red coloring mean less than ability to get the job done, for a presidential adviser. Plus, having a veteran in the mix can be a good thing, over just a handful of rookies. I think House of Cards gets one thing right at least, politics is a game of strategy, networking and wheeling and dealing. Not exactly the cleanest of businesses. This had to be especially true for Obama. He came into office under the promise of being the next Great Reformer.
