A man has to know his limitations. (If it was all Bush's fault, it's all Obama's fault.)

After watching Peggy Noonan blow the analysis of the Obama Presidency, someone says it loud and clear.
I'd have said it myself, but I've been busy, and besides, who'd listen? Nevertheless, here it is in a nutshell:
The Washington Examiner - "It was a surprisingly simplistic argument that, unfortunately for President Obama, has become a nihilistic genie who cannot be put back into a bottle. Having let forth the argument that the president is literally responsible for anything bad that happens during his administration, it’s a bit hard now for the public to be persuaded that it’s really not Obama’s fault that oil is spewing into the ocean off American shores."
The fact is, it isn't Barry's fault, but that's the liberal/progressive argument of big Government. Government can do this for you, it can do it quickly. It can do it nimbly. Big Government can do it the right way and we need them to do it.

Whatever "it" is, Big Government can do it. Provided you let US (liberal progressive Democrats), be your Big Government.

Well, it can't. Assuming Barack Hussien Obama is the best possible man for the Presidency at this point in time, and the best selection ever for that office, there is one fly in the ointment.

He's irrelevant.

That's the Conservative argument in a nutshell. Government, while necessary, can't do it all, and in fact can do surprisingly little. Except make an even bigger mess of things.

A man has to know his limitations. All men do. Particularly Presidents.
