    Amateur? President Obama was a first term senator that had no executive experience. He had never been mayor, never been governor, he had never been troop leader in the Boy Scouts. He hadn't signed the front of a paycheck. He hadn't led anything. We elected him president.

    The problem is knowing shit that isn't true or that doesn't work in the real world. You know, the kind of shit Obama was an expert of, and John Kerry, and Hillary, and most dem leaders.

    Look sweetie. A top executive of any large organization does not live by public pronouncements alone. Google "CEO job description" for plenty on the subject. Trump is not the guy you want trying to tap dance his way around world leaders. I agree with that. But in a lot of ways what Obama was good at (acting Presidential in public) was also his weakness. His reliance on people like Ben Rhodes and Susan Rice reinforces how weak he was on actual strategic thinking. He was quite reluctant to make big moves on the international stage. And I am NOT claiming Trump is good at it either. But the issue of how well his direct reports can manage him is still up in the air. The left is preoccupied with comparisons between Trump and Obama (or Clinton) on that one area of "Communications Proficiency." But it's not the whole job.
