Everyone has a hobbyhorse. Mine happens to be Obama's lack of a work ethic.
I first commented on his history of laziness three years ago in "Obama's Work Ethic." He has been AWOL on some of the most issues of the day (entitlements, fiscal cliff, debt ceiling, budget talks -- even his signature "achievement," ObamaCare, was more a creation of the left-wing ideologues in Congress that he farmed the heavy lifting to).
Now comes the latest salvo against his pitiful work ethic from columnist Charles Gasparino in his "What - Me Work?"
He shows energy only when he campaigns -- and it is a negative energy, driven more by rage (we hear of his contempt for Mitt Romney) than, let's say, hope. He likes to shoot hoops with NBA stars, hang out with celebrities, play golf, take vacations, give speeches before adoring crowds, and collect cash from campaign contributors, but he does not like the humdrum responsibilities that come from being president.
When things do not work out when his policies roll out, he blames others -- whether inanimate or animate (ATMs, tsunamis, Europe, Republicans, "lazy" and soft" Americans -- he blames us).
If he were an employee, Obama would have been fired long ago.
We have a chance to make that come true in November.
