He’s Just Not That Clever
American Spectator, by Ross Kaminsky

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/4/2013 6:15:34 AM

Because Barack Obama was elected on a campaign promise of “fundamentally transforming” the United States, and because our nation then proceeded to lose much of its international influence and domestic economic dynamism, it is easy to say “this is intentional. It’s just what he wants.” Yet while Obama might, in his heart of hearts, not bemoan the loss of jobs and economic growth at home, and American power and prestige abroad, ascribing it to an intentional effort gives Obama credit for qualities and skills he does not possess. Neocon David Horowitz entitled a recent fundraising letter for his Freedom Center “Urgent: Is

Whether by incompetence or by design the reality is that Obama is a scourge on this country and so far nothing has been effective in stopping his destruction. The country is spinning out of control and people out here in flyover country know it and feel helpless to stop it. We look to Republican leadership and we see effective leaders like Cruz and Lee vilified. It really is frustrating when sensible arguments made by reasonable men are rejected by the establishment. Obama may be incompetent but he has his party´s support. We have highly competent men offering real solutions and they are rejected as being extreme. You have to look no further than John McCain and Peter King. Obama couldn´t ask for a better "opposition" party.

He´s just their front lackey. The real rulers are the ones behind the curtain pulling his strings. I´d say George Soros is one of them or he may be the only one. Zippy and his handlers are on a well-defined mission and have so far been very successful. While our elected twiddle their thumbs and play politics, thinking they are relevant. Has everyone also forgotten the 40+ czars and wonder what they are up to every day?

It´s ValJar doing the string pulling while Obie plays king.

He couldn´t get away with any of this if we had an honest press willing to report the incompetence and real destruction caused by this President. But alas we don´t.

History will not be kind to them once the curtain is pulled back on his past and his presidency.

I am with you , number 6. While I do NOT think it is productive to compare him with someone who was plainly a murderer, your point about his ability to influence people with his power of public speaking is a very valid comparison.

I have seen and known people who were persuasive through speech and it is something to behold. They can talk people into almost anything...as if they were hypnotized. I believe Obama is very "gifted" and that is frightening since he shows no moral balance at all.

Much of Obama´s team has limited political experience. Their Chicago methods worked back home because people who were deeply opposed to what was happening the the city most often decided to vote with their feet rather than fighting back. Such methods cannot be taken nationwide because there is no safety valve at that level. Overstep the bounds at the national level guarantees a dedicated opposition this crew is unused to dealing this other than by intimidation.

Slightly off target, but in the spirit of castigating Obama´s Democrat sycophants . . .

Last sentence FTA: The saying “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar” is frequently attributed to Freud, but there is no evidence that he actually said it.

Whether Freud is the author, or not, there exists two Democrats who would definitely dispute the context of the quote; Bubba and Monica. Also, there might be a third, namely, Hillary.

While I generally abhor name calling, I also disapprove of name avoidance. It´s time for some brave souls in Congress to start using terms like ´Marxist Demagogue´ and ´Jihadi Sympathizer´ when referring to the Won.

The Lo-Fos respond to this type of thing.

Characterization is part of controlling the narrative and we don´t do it very well.

I´m afraid I have to disagree with the main premise of this article. If it were mere incompetence, one would expect to see even a few actions or policies that are advantageous to the country, simply on the random chance of a positive result occurring by accident.

But one can´t even point to any such a case. This could only happen if everything he and his cabal are doing are in fact injurious by design. They are meant to damage and to hurt. The closing of unclosable federal parks is a particularly obvious example. Spite moves, without question.

No, it´s not incompetence. It´s deliberate, and in fact quite clever. Being an effective enemy of the country while being the President of that country, and continuing to get away with it in broad daylight, takes considerable cleverness. Faux foolishness takes great effort to pull off effortlessly.

Not that clever, perhaps that may be due to never having been given a reason to hone intellectual skills. Isolation in the cocoon of liberal academia and the gilded path to community organizing have left this man devoid of the hard lessons learned most of us have been exposed to. Nothing published at the Harvard Law Review, minimal voting record in Illinois, faking his autobiography; this man has never benefited from the learning process that can only come from having been required to do something. He has had doors flung open and a red carpet rolled out ahead of his path by the self-loathing guilt ridden liberal establishment. How could that not have gone to his head? I think he must have a fairly high functioning mind to do as well as he does given the complete lack of development. Remember his reference to executive experience in 2008 was limited to how well "he" ran his campaign? Seriously this man was prepared? We´ll never know how clever he may have become or smart he could be because being smart or clever has never been a requirement. He is the poster child for liberal royalty, the chosen one, child of Stanley Dunham, prodigy of Frank Marshall Davis.

I agree with postor # 14 who said this is all by design because of monied interests who are making profits out of Obama´s decisions that have hurt America. They have helped China, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Russia, Syria, Muslim Brotherhood all over the Middle East and how many others we can only guess at. And it´s easier for foreigners to make campaign donations and outright bribes from off shore banks than for US businesses to get away with these transactions.

I have come to look at the Øbama phenomenon in the same way I look at a swarm of locusts. No individual locust has very much intelligence. It has only a very few chemical commands that drive it forward, devouring everything in it´s path. When you bring together a fifty million of these highly driven idiot individuals, you have an organism that can do amazingly destructive things. Øbama is like the lead locust and his supporters, obviously living in a very dim, short sighted view of life and country, form a system that is eating this nation from whin and they are not going to go away or be easily defeated. We see them do all sorts of utterly stupid things, yet they are winning. Collectively, they all move in the same direction driven by the same agenda. They are relentlessly stupid, voracious creatures with no thought as to the damage they do- they just want it all and they want it all now!

I have waffled between thinking BO is a dunce and extremely clever in undermining America in a subtle enough way to get away with it. I agree, he just isn´t that clever. Further, the result, as in with Syria, often makes him look stupid and BO´s ego, something clearly super-sized, would not let him deliberately look foolish.

He does have surrogates that are either very clever or shamelessly ruthless in carrying out progressive actions with a "let them try to stop us" attitude. They have been aided and abetted by a feckless court system that refuses to call them on it.

But beyond that, exceptionalism does not establish or maintain itself automatically. All that is needed to accomplish the destruction of America is not appreciating its significance, its uniqueness, and not trying to maintain it. A liberal government is like an incompetent CEO of a large company. The company doesn´t disappear right away but it declines until it fails. Statist European governments are reaching end-of-life and BO wants us to be just like them. His foolishness and incompetence for 8 years is getting us well down that path.

Some comment about Obama´s ´hypnotic´ voice but I disagree. In two seconds you can figure out he´s just above street level jive of the black race. Obama likes to hear the drone of his own voice but he sounds stupid. Obama is of low IQ and I doubt his education level. No man of great intelligence would use words so wrongly as this lowlife idiot. Don´t get me started on the whistling in his speech he irritating and boring.
Obama is the product of the media and his handlers. His entire cabal are America haters and their mission is destroy us.
I´m not wasting brain cells dissecting Obama anymore than I care about Hitler or Charles Manson all I need to know is he´s evil and souless and should never be the leader of this great country.

"...Barack Obama has almost no idea what he is doing, why he is doing it, or how his actions affect ordinary citizens or the world around us." (page 3 of the article)

This is characteristic of all compulsive sociopaths. It frees their malevolence of the reflection, doubt and guilt that encumbers most of what we undertake.

Consider how swiftly this creature, with so shallow an intellect and such narrow ability, obtained so much power.

Obama really is not that smart.

An intelligent person who does as poorly as Obama at off-teleprompter conversation would figure out a way to improve that skill. Obama hasn´t.

He left the crafting of Obamacare to the legislators. Why? He had no idea how to craft a piece of legislation. All he could do was hold parties to persuade people to pass it.

Obama won´t negotiate with the Republicans on the budget. Why? He has no idea how to do so. To cover up that fact, he says "My way or the highway" and the press assumes it´s his resolve, not his stupidity that produces this approach.

Obama does have smart people pulling his stings. But the people who assume he can do much more than give speeches and play golf are sadly mistaken.

FTA: Barack Obama has almost no idea what he is doing, why he is doing it, or how his actions affect ordinary citizens or the world around us.

Obama´s nearly five incompetent years in office have indeed been a tragi-comedy, but Establishment Republican attempts to replace Obama with yet another boring "Me, too" centrist show signs of political inbreeding and the brain death of demi-liberalism, which has been a failure from Nixon´s presidency until now. Only Reagan slowed the descent into irrelevance. As long as Republicans are just a shade less vivid statists than Democrats, this country will continue on its progressive highway straight down the drain, whether at 50mph or 100mph. It all leads to the same place.

FTA: While Obama is not clever enough for his apparent imcompetence to be anything but real, some of his advisers/puppet-masters, like David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett, are.

Jarrett and Axelrod are communists in all but name, as is Obama. They´re probably more intelligent individuals than he, but, hey, so were about 90% of my classmates in college. Being a bull artist and a con requires a certain minimal level of intelligence, somewhat above the national average of about 90 IQ--just enough to fool the legions of dull normal and below, who comprise about half of the population. Bad experiences can lead to greater widsom, but so far that´s not happening. As Frank Zappa once said, "It´s not getting any smarter out there."

Obozo represents the cesspool that DC has become. Think back over the past few decades and with the exception of Regan, name a president that has really stood out. Not many of exceptional political skill that was used to futher the nation both nationally and world wide. And, all of those around Obozo are just as bad as he is. That is why I have consistantly called for another revolution. That cesspool needs to be drained, filled in, and re-create a government that will do the will of the people and not be consumed with the desire to just continue their own personal power.

I think this article is trying to make something of Obama that just isn´t there. The regime is evil and knows exactly what it is doing as was demonstrated by the 800#. He is doing exactly what he said he would do and everything including loss of financial status, loss of the middle class etc. is by design. Trying to paint it in any other way is just a waste of time. Obama is evil, supported by evil and the plan is to bring not just America, but the world to its knees. Hide and watch.

One of the few things that gives me some comfort are Lucianne posters who get the big picture and state it...like #6 and others in this thread. I am not just afraid, I´m terrified at the speed with which time seems to be be passing, the way in which this monster muslim has seized power and is wielding it, of what we don´t know about what he´s doing in the middle east, under the table, with those he rewards with power, position, money, et al...like Susan Rice for example. Because of her new job, she was rendered safe from ever being be interrogated about Benghazi. Obama isn´t an out of control naughty child, he´s a narcissist who knows what he´s doing, why he´s doing it, and where to turn for whatever he seeks, and what to do if he doesn´t get his way. With the media aiding and abetting his every move, it´s no wonder that a real leader like Netanyahu publicly issued a warning about Iran so the people in America maight have a chance to hear it for themselves. There is so much wrong and it is spreading more rapidly than we can track. I am truly afraid.

Obamacide: we now have the tortuous beginnings of a Communist medical industry, virtually enslaving millions of doctors, nurses, technicians, administrators, from the real world, into the dark depths of communist government IRS enforced power, and included are the threats of fines, imprisonment, total control (enslaving the patients, too). Devastating, at least. All this other debt denial, “shut down” stuff (paid vacation of bureaucrats) is just distraction from the truth of the Communist victory of this new collectivist form of medical body/mind enslavement, AND finally, don’t ever forget, the really big one, the Soetero/Clinton stand down murders of the four victims at Benghazi. This Marxist impersonator has escalated, sped up, all the horrors of the Feinstein Schumer Durbin Puglosi Reid communists already in stealth Communist death spiral planning to end a free America. The question is who is covering for who? Are the Feinstein commies covering (distracting) for Soetero, or is Soetero’s insanity acting as cover up for the already in place herd of communist lice who are creating American doom? As long as American corporations openly sponsor all this radio and TV propagandist tyranny of Sawyers, Pelley, Williams, Letterman, Walters, Stephanopolis, there is no turning back. Each sponsor PAYS each communist propagandist to speak and infect all of the viewing public. It’s all crazy: the biggest corporations are paying for all of this communist driven destruction. Time to connect the dots.

Way, way, way back when Obama appeared before the Editorial Board of a major San Francisco Newspaper and told them he would eliminate coal as an energy source I knew right then he was barely capable of walking and talking at the same time.

He´s never let me down.

He also surrounds himself with brain damaged people ~ like Joe Biden (he´s had brain surgery 3 times, all unsuccessful), Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton (those falls have a cause ~ she´s done a bunch of them ~ it´s usually the brain), Therea re others ~ maybe even Chief Justice Roberts ~ he´s on an anti-epileptic drug. Lurch hissef´ musts have taken a few tumbles (Lurch is Teresa Hines guy)

I wouldn´t be surprised to find that the whole crowd that glomed onto him have troubles with their main brain stem, or the corpus calosum, or maybe even the frontal cerebral cortex (which would explain their name caling, screaming and inabilty to think in moral terms.)

From my point the obozo situation is unique. In Italy, Germany, Russia, China there was a charismatic fuerer/leader, who made the way for himself, and, btw, was (were) afraid of backstabbers. This nincompoop is propped by a very focused cabal and totally supported by the evil group - nobody is targeting his place!
For instance, Russian leader, Putin, has to work hard to keep his place - obozo has not. Is he smart? Of course not. But he doesn´t have to be - the cabal has tight hand on bureaucracy (including military, police, CIA, FBI and other alphabets), media, banking, Wall Street, google/schmoogle/facebook...

Certainly Obama is not as clever as he and his followers believe he is, but that doesn´t mean he is incapable of deliberate destruction.

Obama is enacting the liberal agenda quite rapidly, spending us into oblivion, arming our enemies, diminishing our influence, and permitting an evil regime to become a nuclear power. None of these actions are attributable to random incompetence.

The press makes it possible. They do not do their job of informing the sheeple. And if the GOP were to try to tell the sheeple about Alinsky and the maximizing of misery, they would just say "duh" and get out the picthforks and torches for a run on the wave makers.

Can´t disturb the sheeple with things like truth and facts and reason. Maybe the O J jury wasn´t just because of the change in venue to the backwaters of the inner city. They are all around us.

obMao is clever enough to know the pop media will not out him. This is historic. But does it also mean the day of the Gentile is over?

The One in charge will do the deciding and the ones here can do no better to ask of the only real Hope of the Universe, IMO.

But I would so like to march... And hope many do over the weekend. Go to public sites and demand entrance or put on sackcloth and ashes and fast and pray sheltering in place?

??? The prayer is the way but often The Way has used evil folks to make things happen according to plan. IOW I also know nothing and neither does the pop media. They preen and seek favor of the elite, the lib celebrity makers? They are in with the in crowd. Would thaat praying would wake them up to what they are.

Wonderful, insightful (but debatable, still) article by Mr. Ross Kaminsky.

President Obama may or may not be clever but it is indisputable that he is completely disdainful of the nation, which he leads.

Barrack Hussein Obama’s words:
“I do think at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”

Ronald Wilson Reagan’s words:
“They tell us we must learn to live with less, and teach our children that their lives will be less full and prosperous than ours have been; that the America of the coming years will be a place where — because of our past excesses — it will be impossible to dream and make those dreams come true. I don´t believe that. And, I don´t believe you do either…..

“I cannot and will not stand by and see this great country destroy itself. Our leaders attempt to blame their failures on circumstances beyond their control, on false estimates by unknown, unidentifiable experts who rewrite modern history in an attempt to convince us our high standard of living, the result of thrift and hard work, is somehow selfish extravagance which we must renounce as we join in sharing scarcity. I don´t agree that our nation must resign itself to inevitable decline, yielding its proud position to other hands. I am totally unwilling to see this country fail in its obligation to itself and to the other free peoples of the world.

“America is too great for small dreams.”

The socialists also aren´t so foolish to believe their ideas lead to general prosperity. They are quite content for most people to live destitute and desperate, save for an elite they aspire to be part of, because it is all about controlling lives. They don´t believe in economic freedom, nor even personal freedom even though they peddle that lie. They are control freaks.

His putative cleverness – and, frankly, most of his other traits – are beside the point.

What counts is the fact that his psychosis dovetails perfectly with the aims of his handlers.

They’re using him, but he’s also using them. Or so he thinks.

I’m afraid it’s going to get much much uglier before it’s over.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Those ‘rogue’ agents

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

What would a Mitch

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

The Problem with Rand Paul

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying. Even when a part of the science of flight

Max Blumenthal, like others on the far-Left, jumped on the July 2011 Norwegian massacre of 77 dead and 319 injured to impugn the counter-jihadi right. His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
