    So he is doing a wonderful job when not being the visible rep?

    Obama was never a constitutional law professor. If you want to want to be accurate get the titles straight. He was a senior lecturer. As for his lawmaking experience, the paint on his senate office walls wasn't even dry when he through his hat into the ring to run for president. However, leadership experience isn't a prerequisite to hold the office. Neither is previous political experience.

    And he did a pretty good job. Left an economy in far better shape then when he took it over and his ranking is already around the 12th best president. That is unless you talk to dumbfuck racists who claim is is the worst ever which is simply impossible. Trump could never fill the shoes of Obama, he is an imbecile.

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.

    Competencies

    1. Leadership.
    2. Strategic Thinking.
    3. Business Acumen.
    4. Problem Solving/Analysis.
    5. Decision Making.
    6. Performance Management.
    7. Results Driven.
    8. Communication Proficiency.
    9. Financial Management.
    Those in the know rank Obama as the 12th best president ever. Do you think the dumbshit will ever be anywhere near that number. You can plaster partisan bullshit all you want but Obama is 10 times the leader your dumbfuck will ever be.

    SHRM is the society for Human Resources management. I can show you dozens of analyses of management jobs, both public and private sector and being good on TV is NEVER the only requirement.

    And I am not trying to dazzle anyone. If you want to pretend that being smooth is the primary requirement for the POTUS job, go ahead. What I said is obviously true, no dazzle required.
    Barack Obama has been whisked to a very good table at the club of former presidents, according to a C-SPAN survey of 91 presidential historians published on Friday. Obama’s 12th-place ranking only a month after leaving office is the best for any president since Ronald Reagan, who ranks ninth in the new survey.

    Where do you think trump will end up?
