It sounds so hackneyed, sure, but it's so appropriate: insofar as the reaction from the left, and lamestream news in particular, what will it be compared to what it would be if a staunchly conservative Republican had said it?
AN incompetent president...
Jimmy Carter could reveal a mean streak now and then, but he was primarily clueless and incompetent, in over his head. Obama's great danger is that he is NOT incompetent--at least, not at what he's trying to accomplish. And incompetent president, yes, but the presidency is not what he's after; its a socio-political-economic agenda, and the presidency is the toolkit, the means to that end.

Ah, finally someone puts a finger right on the real problem! We should put together a contest: Big prize to anyone who can identify even one real problem this world faces that ISN'T Bush's fault. ;-)

Considering that they were going as members of the Kansas Federation of Teenage Republicans and thus aware and consciously focusing on government and politics, I daresay they'll be learning a lot more from this than anyone might have expected.
