Douglas MacKinnon

Bingo! This is an incredibly important moment and revelation. While conservatives have been making this exact same point for years, now that a liberal is saying it in the most powerful liberal publication in the nation, maybe others will not only start to pay attention, but give these "disquieting aspects of his biography" the scrutiny they deserve.

In one paragraph, Westen has pulled back the curtain to reveal a man so far out of his element as to be a true threat to the well-being of our nation.

This is not a game. This is not a TV show or a horror movie we can turn off. This is the United States of America coming off the rails and cascading toward true anarchy because in large part, our president, as outlined by a liberal in the liberal bible, "accomplished very little before he ran for president" ... had "never run a business or state" ... "had a singularly unremarkable career as a law professor" ... and is well-known for "dodging difficult issues."

Honestly, if more Americans knew of these indisputable facts, it's hard to see how Barack Obama could be elected mayor of a small town in Alaska, let alone president of the United States. And yet . .. here we are.

Since liberals and liberal publications are now starting to admit that the president may not be up to the job, maybe one of them can then offer up a scenario to get us out of this mess. Something like: have Joe Biden resign, have Obama appoint a competent and vetted vice president, and then have President Obama resign.

Liberals could do all that while finally conceding that real-world experience does matter and that Obama brought none to the White House. Hence, the train wreck.
