Yes, the POTUS is in way in over his head,
Obama is like a Chilean miner, Harry Reid says
President found himself in ‘a hole’ when elected to White House, but ‘rolled up his sleeves’
In a speech to supporters in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Reid said that when Obama replaced George W. Bush in the White House he found himself in a “hole so deep that he couldn’t see the outside world.
“It was like the Chilean miners, but he, being the man he is, rolled up his sleeves and said ‘I am going to get us out of this hole,’” Reid said at an “Early Vote GOTV” event.
As Michelle Malkin put it,
Sure, Obama is like a Chilean miner — stuck in a deep hole and dependent on competent, can-do Americans to get him out.
He’s in over his head, he’s leading a party that’s about to be buried by an avalanche in two weeks and he’s completely in the dark.
I agree with Harry Ried that Obama is like a trapped miner — both are in dangerously over their heads and begging for cigarettes
and TPTB’s commenter,
“I guess that would be an apt comparison if the Chilean miners had all grabbed their shovels and started digging downward to get out of the hole.”
Harry couldn’t compare Obama to Chilean President Sebastián Piñera, after all, Piñera understands what leadership is all about.
Rush Limbaugh: “Obama’s still in it [the mine].”
