Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Makes Huge Stand Against “Clearly Incompetent” Obama

Originally posted at

President Barack Obama has not enjoyed many successes in his five-plus years in office, though the number of mistakes, scandals, and total failures continue to mount: Syria’s civil war continues unabated. A terrorist released from Guantanamo Bay is currently leading the radical Islamist ISIS group invading Iraq. Lois Lerner’s IRS scandal grows more damning with each new revelation. Obamacare suffers one legal defeat after another, with more likely in the offing.

The long litany of Obama’s problems has led an increasing number to wonder at what such an ineffectual person is doing occupying the Oval Office. Some have gone so far as to call for his impeachment.

Adding his name to the list of those who question whether Barack Obama is equal to the task of leading the free world is Retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Dan Hampton, who in the discussion of another crisis–Russia’s adventurism in the Ukraine–dismisses the president as not even worth talking about.

From Breitbart:

Retired Air Force Lt. Colonel and author of “Viper Pilot: A Memoir of Air Combat,” Dan Hampton, ripped President Obama on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

“I don’t want to get into Barack Obama and the White House. He’s clearly incompetent and it’s a waste of time” Hampton declared.

He also pointed out that finding an individual who could use the missile used to shoot down the airliner would not be difficult because “Ukraine was part of the USSR for the entire time there was a USSR. So finding somebody in the rebel separatist forces that had been trained on [the missile that shot down the Malaysia Airlines flight] isn’t going to be a far stretch. So I don’t see any smoking gun there.”

Conspiracy theories regarding President Obama and his execution of his liberal agenda abound. Some undoubtedly make more sense than others, but all imply his competence–that he knows, in short, what he’s doing and how to do it.

Each new revelation of this president’s actions, combined with his lack of leadership on the world scene, seems to call that claim into greater question.

Regardless of whether by calculation or clumsiness, there can be no doubt that America and most Americans are worse off than they were when Barack Obama took office in 2008.
