Son, why don't you go get a real job and then come back when you have some experience in the real world?

Investor's Business Daily s provided a handy little chart to explain much of what's going wrong at the White House.

Market: With the economy posting its best gain in six years, you'd think stocks would rally too. And so they did on Friday — for about an hour. Then it was all downhill. Why? Ask Lincoln.

It was old Abe who said you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.

To which we'd that add you can't fool the stock market very much any of the time. It simply has too much going for it: millions of investors all over the world poring over every scintilla of evidence that could influence market direction.

And that includes government policy as well as market and economic conditions. And right now, the market seems to be saying: "It's the policies, stupid." Specifically, the socialistic policies that the Obama administration keeps pushing at Americans who know that's not the way this great country was built.

It isn't just the efforts to socialize medicine or nationalize the car industry or control banks or punish both consumers and industry for climate variations that have little to do with it either. It's every initiative that comes out of this White House.

We got another raft of them in last Wednesday's State of the Union address. Sure, there were good ideas here and there, and we made a point of highlighting them in this space Friday. But most of the others will do little to strengthen the country or the economy, and we're surprised the president's more experienced advisers allow them to be advanced.

But maybe that's the problem. Such advisers are few and far between in this White House. The chart below, which we've run before, shows that this crew has less real-world experience than any other administration since at least Teddy Roosevelt's.

But Nickie, he's not an ideologue. He said so, so there you have it.

I've seen this fact before, but BO's position is summed up nicely by your picture of him with his hand...erm...finger on his temple.

Absolutely f***ing right. Commies, socialists, and union thugs on the White House payroll make for a one sided, one minded administration. It's very easy to judge a man by the company he keeps. The pity of this is, we all saw it in early 2008, and we were alone!

He has no work history, no voting record, and no birth certificate. And nobody cares.

Fredd... He said it so it must be a lie.

Arby... I keep thinking back to his photo talking to an Israeli official. He is posing for the camera with the soles of his feet facing the camera. It was yet another FU to an historical friend..

Woody... We weren't alone, but we sure were outnumbered by the death-wish liberals.

The President's got no verifiable tangible history. The Obama administration having very little real world experience somehow, doesn't surprise me. Their lack of experience is becoming quite apparent. Obama and Dems are saying F**k you to the American people. Their socialistic policies are ruining America and we must stop them.

This man knows EXACTLY what he's doing. He's surrounding himself with people who believe like he does. They want government control over everything. The only people allowed to aspire to live well are the few government elite. Socialism is good and capitalism is bad. People don't know what's good for them or how to vote, so force them to act the way the government wants and get ACORN to work in key swing states.

This man is happy to be wealthy and have his family live well and get great medical care, but the rest of us, especially those of us who don't support him, can all be taxed to to the poor house and then drop dead.

Hey, my word verfication is "difies", as in, "The number of idiots that support Obama defies all explanation..."

Obama can't afford to get people in with real experience. They might know enough to speak out against his destructive policies.

Terri, you're right. He must be stopped.

Krystal... I fully agree with your statement that he knows exactly what he's doing. The power brokers behind The Party also know where they want this country to be.

The Party assumes the people are stupid. Unfortunately, The Party is correct.

Opie... Great point. All they need is a whistle-blower. Well, if the numbers continue to turn against Obama, there will appear and ass-covering whistle-blower.

Whistleblowers, able advisors - it matters not. He is enabled by the MSM who refuse to hold him accountable for anything. His incompetence and arrogance is shielded like a cloaked Klingon Bird of Prey.

With this kind of protection he could be photographed cornholing a 9 yr old in the Rose Garden during the Easter Egg Roll and the kid would get arrested for exposing himself.
