Not Kidding

A President needs political understanding to run the government, but he may be elected without it.
--Harry S. Truman

Oh my. I think you hit the nail on the head.

My initial concerns about Obama being president have come true. He certainly talks pretty enough, and he has mastered the game of politics, but there is no substance under the facade. I think he was elected for one reason, and one reason only--and that wasn't for his political understanding.

Mr. Truman had so many things right. And your analysis of the current situation seems to me to be spot on.
