Obama's writing problem

Like most Americans, Senator Jim DeMint (R-NC) has heard enough telepromptered blathering from the Pre-emptor-in-Chief:

Frankly, I'm so tired of his speeches, it's going to be hard for me to watch....We need a plan in writing, he needs to send it to us and tell us what it is going to cost so not only Congress and the American people can read it, businesses can read it.

Ay, Senator, there indeed, is the rub. It's time for the American people to recognize that perhaps Mr. Obama can't write, or at least can't write well enough to provide legislative direction.  Where was his written health care program?  In the signature piece of legislation defining his first term in office, B.O. left the composition of the bill up to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  Prior to being elected to the U.S. Senate, Obama was best known for voting "present'" thereby avoiding the need to make a commitment on many bills or write legislation of his own.

In the run-up to his nomination as the Democrat candidate in 2008, the Politico noted:

In his short time in Washington, he hasn't sponsored any legislation that would affect the way Americans live their daily lives -- but few first term senators, and few of his rivals for the presidency, can claim otherwise.

Despite being gifted with the job of editor of the Harvard Law Review while a student there, we have no evidence of B.O. demonstrating any writing skill. Other than some pitiful, sophmoric poetry and an ill-composed, rambling letter to the Harvard Law Review in support of affirmative action, we don't really have any evidence of Obama's ability to write.

But wait, his defenders will cry: what about his two best selling autobiographies? The B.O. family has gotten rich on the cloying, affirmative action-to-riches tales peddled by the worst President in American history.   Jack Cashill has clearly demonstrated here at the American Thinker that Obama was incapable of composing those books. The fact of the matter is that unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist, Bill Ayres Jr, played a major role in Obama's purported compositions.

The solution seems simple enough to me: it's finally time for the B.O. Administration to bring in the real brains behind the operation to help craft the legislation needed for the remainder of Barely the President's term. We could call it: Mr. Ayres goes to Washington.
