Kevin McCarthy, Incompetent And Unqualified, Soon To Be Two Heartbeats From The Presidency!

There have been many complaints over the past five years about Speaker of the House John Boehner, from the far right, and from the left, but at least we knew that Boehner had 20-25 years experience and was at least, basically, competent.

Now, with Boehner’s resignation, we are soon to be stuck with California Congressman Kevin McCarthy as the next Speaker, a man who admits that the Benghazi, Libya hearings were simply designed to weaken Democratic Presidential contender Hillary Clinton, and that the doctored Planned Parenthood videos are a ploy to help promote the anti abortion movement, and uses a word that does not exist, that Hillary Clinton is “untrustable”! He also called the nation of Hungary “Hungria”!

McCarthy is seen as better than Tea Party rivals, who would love to take over the Speakership, but McCarthy, with the least experience in Congress of any Speaker in more than a century, a total of only nine years and no special accomplishments and only two bills passed (both perfunctory), is someone to be concerned about as being only two heartbeats away from the Presidency!

Kevin McCarthy can be compared to former Vice President Dan Quayle in his looks and lack of any sign of intellect, and also to Sarah Palin, who also was good looking but lacking the brain power to be close to the Presidency!

What is it about the GOP that they find “good looking” men and women, who have no brains or intellect, and are a sign of the worst among us, putting the nation into danger by being so close to the Presidency, as Quayle was for 4 years; as Palin could have been for eight years: and as McCarthy now seems to be for at least the next 14 months, if not more?

America deserves much better than this!

    As I wrote a few days ago. “Kevin McCarthy is Eric Cantor with ten less IQ points.” Jim Jorndan, Raul Labrador, Scott Garret, John Duncan Jr, , Dave Brat, Trey Gowdy , any one of those would be better than McCarthy or Scalise.

    By the way, America deserves much better than Barack Hussein Obama, and yet there he is, the human wrecking ball, sitting in the Oval Office.

    Good one Leia! 🙂

    So, the GOP is “putting the world in danger” by nominating some people so close in line to the Presidency? Really? Well let’s see how our “bright” and “most brilliant” President ever did. An objective review of Barack Hussein Obama administration policies reveals that they have consistently posed a direct or indirect threat to national security:
    -The unilateral cancellation of the Easter Europe ABM deployment without securing a tangible quid pro quo from Moscow and no counter to Russia’s recent decision to sell the potent S-300 anti-aircraft system to Iran.
    – The ill-advised support for the overthrow of long-term ally of the West, Egypt’s Mubarak and the inexplicable enthusiastic White House support of the Muslim Brotherhood.
    – The equally ill-advised and ill-planned toppling of Libya’s Gaddafi, resulting in a country without a functional government now overrun with Islamists, where at Benghazi four Americans died needlessly.
    – The withholding of vital intelligence from the Senate that Russia had been flagrantly cheating on the existing INF treaty to advance ratification of New START in 2010. Seventy-one Senators voted for ratification without full background knowledge.
    – The 2011 withdrawal of all American troops from Iraq by Obama while blaming the Bush administration for inadequacies of the 2008 Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA). This allowed Iraq to descend back into sectarian chaos, giving rise to ISIS and advantage to Iran. A war won at high cost in blood and treasure was thus lost.
    – The military drawdown in Afghanistan – mindlessly pre-announced to the enemy – may lose that war as well if continued.
    – The release of five dangerous Taliban in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl is beyond rational justification and/or discussion.
    – The manifest dereliction of duty in not taking strong measures to protect America from devastating EMP attack – which can be done at very affordable cost.
    – The lack resolute policy has turned Syria into a graveyard of American credibility. Nothing substantive has been achieved to slow, let alone destroy, rapidly metastasizing ISIS, unconscionably leaving a compounding problem to future administrations.
    – The opening of our southern border to a tsunami of illegal immigration, arguably to permanently bias future voter demographics toward a one-party (Democratic) state. That many of those gaining easy entry may wish us harm is apparently of no concern to Obama.
    – The continuing undermining of America’s military superiority is increasing the likelihood of confrontation with adversaries. According to the Heritage Foundation Index of Military Strength, our Commander-In-Chief has allowed our military power to degrade to “Marginal,” leaving the US Army at its relatively weakest level since the end of WWII, while our antagonists pour money into their armed forces.
    – Finally (but Obama is not through yet!) – during recent post-summit remarks, China’s Xi Jinping suggested tough U.S. response to Chinese hacking would bring retaliation; obligingly, Obama affirmed sanctions wouldn’t be directed against governments. Essentially, Xi stepped forward, Obama blinked and stepped back – signaling a major geopolitical sea change. Cyberespionage by Russia and Iran haven’t been addressed.

    LOL! Rolling on the floor laughing at Ariel’s BS!

    Though Red China, Russia and Iran increasingly challenge America, the Middle East bloodshed continues and ISIS grows stronger, President Obama has declared “…no challenge–poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change.” This extraordinarily vacuous statement is from either a hopelessly delusional ideologue, woefully untutored in world history, geopolitics and the unequaled greatness of America, or a brilliant Manchurian Candidate marching to his own drumbeat.

    I second that Pragmatic.

    Folks – Not only is he a troll, he’s an armchair critic. He sits in the safety of his home and criticizes people even though he hasn’t experienced what he is criticizing.

    “It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There’s a lot of — I don’t know what the term is in AUSTRIAN — wheeling and dealing — and, you know, people are pursuing their interests, and everybody has their own particular issues and their own particular politics.” Barack Obama. Gee I wonder if the Professor was that offended when Obama invented a new language , AUSTRIAN! LOL I bet there was no post saying Obama was disqualified to be President because he was such a dunce..

    I did not hear an N, only saw it on the screen, Ariel. I wonder what others will say, so I hope others will comment.

    The point is that McCarthy is a dimwit, and Obama is NOT, even if he does make a blunder now and then, as he is highly educated and was an adjunct professor of law for many years, not intended to be full time, as he had no interest in that.

  11. Southern Liberal October 5, 2015 6:31 pm

    Quite right Professor! A minor gaffe does not make someone stupid.

  12. Ariel Leis October 5, 2015 7:41 pm

    Obama’s has more than minor gaffe’s now and then.

  13. Pragmatic Progressive October 5, 2015 10:04 pm

    I second that Southern Liberal!

  14. Rustbelt Democrat October 5, 2015 10:25 pm

    I agree with the Professor and Southern Liberal. Only in the GOTea fantasy land is Obama stupid.

  15. Princess Leia October 6, 2015 9:11 am

    Precisely, Rustbelt! 🙂

  16. Ronald October 8, 2015 6:50 pm

    Yes, D, but we might get a worse choice, and just two heartbeats away from the Presidency, the reason why I wrote the blog entry on the need to restore the Presidential Succession Act of 1886 in place of the present law of 1947!
