Patently Inept

Our President, you see, is simply inept.  Clueless.  Irony doesn't bother him because he's too busy to get the nuance.  First, he accuses the Republicans of stiffing him for the tab at lunch. 
The president also said that Republicans, not Democrats, caused the current budget crisis. “I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion dollar deficit!” he said. Obama compared Republicans to a person who orders a steak dinner and martini and then, “just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.”
Okay, I understand that he was making political points, although ineptly if you see the bill that he's stiffed us with. However, two days later, he actually stiffs a restaurant owner for the lunch tab.
Amid the bustle of President Obama’s surprise stop for barbecue Wednesday the White House apparently overlooked one key detail: the bill. Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill. As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread. The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.
The irony is rich on this one. I seem to recall an incident when President Reagan stopped at a restaurant for lunch and tried to use a credit card. The place didn't take credit cards and Reagan had to borrow $20.00 from a Secret Service agent. At least President Reagan made arrangements to pay, however embarrasing they might have been. The irony is deep on this one. This guy is inept. Patently inept.
