I stumbled upon a blog with some posts that I thought were right on point with the way I see things in the USA today. We have been told how smart Obama is so many times that it was starting to make me physically ill. Add to that the very real fact that stupid is as stupid does and when it comes down to just not understanding the way the world works …Obama, arrogant and oblivious to a fault never lets us forget that there is nothing so stupid that he won’t do it or say it. This article gives some classic examples (and lots of them) of the “Messiah” not being able to live up to his own press. I should have known when we were being told every 5 minutes how smart he is not to believe it …I mean why would they start telling the truth about him or anything else now? CJ
America Elected an Ignoramus
By Alan Caruba
I do not write unpleasant things about Barack Hussein Obama because he is a Democrat, a far-left liberal ideologue, a confirmed liar, or the sock-puppet of whatever cabal that chose him long ago to be the President. I write unpleasant things because he is all of these things, but also because he is the most stupid man to have ever held the office of President.
As far back as January 2, 2010 I wrote that Obama had “a make-believe life” because there was no proof that anything he claimed in his two memoirs, written by the age of 45, was true. His resume listed “community organizer”, an amorphous term that could mean anything, as his primary occupation. By October 2010 the Washington Times published a commentary of mine that said “millions of Americans are beginning to ask: Is President Obama just a moron?”
Even prior to his election, he had ensured that his entire paper trail of birth certificates, passports, college records, and other items most people can produce in under five minutes were “sealed” from public review, despite the fact that most modern presidents have had to submit their personal records, short of a colonoscopy exam, for examination. Among his first executive orders was one issued on January 21, 2009 to ensure none of these records saw the light of day.
When he finally produced a birth certificate, forensic analysts deemed it a forgery.
So, what really occurred on Election Day in 2008 was that a majority of voters, guided by an adoring mainstream press, elected an enigma. He rewarded their obsequiousness by being the first President since Grover Cleveland to not attend their annual Gridiron dinner.
Since then, anyone paying any attention has had to conclude that Americans elected an ignoramus, based solely on his own words and actions.
Here’s just a quick look at some of them.
Hans Bader, a scholar with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, addressed recent examples of Obama’s ignorance when he mocked Republicans as members of the Flat Earth Society in Columbus’ day for their skepticism of his green energy policies, among which was a hearty endorsement of algae—pond scum, but Columbus’ contemporaries knew the Earth was round, but doubted he could reach Asia via the Atlantic Ocean. Bader noted that Obama “falsely attributed to Muslims the invention of printing and even falsely claimed that Morocco was the first country to recognize the United States as a new nation.”
