Low-Information Leadership
Wall Street Journal, by Peggy Noonan

Original Article

Posted By:Hobbiest, 12/3/2013 8:47:59 PM

The president’s problem right now is that people think he’s smart. They think he’s in command, aware of pitfalls and complexities. That’s his reputation: He’s risen far on his brains. They think he is sophisticated. That is his problem in the health insurance debacle. People have seen their prices go up, their choices narrow. They have lost coverage. They have lost the comfort of keeping the doctor who knows them and knows they tend to downplay problems and not complain of pain, and so doing more tests might be in order, or tend to be hypochondriacal and probably don’t need

Comments:
Long but stay with it. It ties in nicely with Roger L. Simon´s assessment of Obama as the Hippie President. Noonan´s descriptions of meetings at the White House read like 1960´s happenings in which participation was the sole point. People walk away feeling from White House meeting feeling they accomplished a lot but nothing actually gets done afterwards.

I can´t think of anything Obama has ever said that reveals anything more than an average intellect. And I can´t recall anything he said with "soaring rhetoric".

But I CAN think of dozens of examples of dumb decisions and dreadfully bad leadership.

Might be best for me not to though.

The disaster of failure with Obamacare ONLY regards getting people signed up for it.
True revolt will come once people try to see doctors and find that they can´t.
Today, for the first time in 40 years, I was refused a new prescription my Dr. ordered for me, and now my Dr. has to jump through hoops to show that it is medically necessary. Some pencil pusher is going to decide if I can have a prescription that may make it easier for me to BREATHE !

How did the idea that Obama is smart get started? No one has ever seen a college transcript. He has never released his grades. He can´t speak in sentences unless he reads them. Did teachers and instructors just pass him from grade to grade without testing him? He seems maybe average or, perhaps, below average in intelligence. He has no experience in the real world. Harsh? Yes. He was elected as the ´most important man´ in the world and seems completely lost. We are in deep doo doo.

FTA: ´´The new law seems like just another part of the ongoing shakedown operation that is the relationship of the individual and the federal government, circa 2013.´´

You got that right, Peggy!

And especially those of who´ve worked for an incompetent boss immediately realize he´s not qualified to be POTUS. ´´Results´´, not words, are the best assessment of leader and Obama´s results speak for themselves.

We Right smarties ID´d this con man and his game from the get go. But he hisself had to provide the credulous, white-guilted middle with the Rosetta Stone to his words when he repeated his Big Lie, ´´If you like your current policy/doctor/..., you can keep them.´´ Within a matter of weeks this past fall, millions awoke and gasped,´´My God, he can look into the camera and supremely confidently and convincingly LIE to us!!!´´ Much of America is now onto this character, FINALLY.

#9 quite correctly points out that those of us on the intellectually grounded Right never believed a single word Obama was saying, as candidate or as president. We´re disappointed in Ms. Noonan for being credulous, for believing the Obama Narrative at a crucial time when his ascendancy might have been cut short, and for her fear, widespread on the center-right, of being labeled a racist by political operatives who eat, sleep, and breathe racial polarization. We´re downright angry at turncoat Republicans like John McCain, who soothingly assured us that Obama would be a good president before soft-pedaling his own losing campaign against Obama.

Constantly being lied to eventually erodes listeners´ trust, even among the most credulous, and by now the brazen Obama stands unashamedly before us as an unrepentant liar who will continue to lie until his credibility reaches absolute zero. We knew his policies would be disastrous before he had to resort to subterfuge to get them enacted. So now his campaign continues because it´s all he knows how to do. It´s all he ever knew how to do. Effective governance is quite beyond his capability. He´s nothing but a resonant voice on a stick, signifying nothing. We´ve got three more years of empty blather and destructive leftist policy to endure.

It would go a long way to restore Peggy´s credibility if she would admit that she was wrong about him in 2008. She was one of those who thought he was an intellectual who would be good for the country. She was smitten. I remember reading her opinion pieces and thinking how foolish she was.

Not so much that people think he´s smart, Peg, but they believe - against every shred of evidence - that his intentions are good. As you ....still do?

People, people who "help people", are the progressivist people in the world. That´s why his failures and scandals matter not at all - as long as he "cares" and people identify with that. Surely, you get that ...now?

It´s interesting that Peggy mentions "it´s like they´ve got movies scripts in their heads" her waffling got her a near first hand account of the chaos that runs this country. I´m sure these tweeting bozos really rub ms. Noonan the wrong way.

Make no mistake, this is a must read for the day. Unlike old noonan pieces this one ends on a strong note. This is as close to a mea culpa as you get with Peggy and get this if you read between the lines you detect biting sarcasm as she types "smart."

I was furious with Peggy for her gullibility and her self-deception as if being part of the Great and the Good was more important to her than the truth. But I´m always ready to welcome back a prodigal son or daughter. Just as reformed communists have the best rhetoric and tactics against the left, I´m hoping that the reformed Obama lovers will have a great impact on turning even more people.

Posted By: Hobbiest- 3/21/2014 9:38:59 AM     Post Reply
A $14,000 jumble sale find turned into millions of dollars for a man who´d been thwarted in his attempts to turn a quick profit by selling the tiny ornament to scrap metal dealers. The man, who hails from the Midwest but wishes to remain anonymous, had been left financially stretched after he apparently overestimated what the tiny golden egg would be worth once melted down. He´d been hoping to make $500. In a fit of desperation one night last year, he typed "egg" and the name engraved on the clock it contained -- "Vacheron Constantin" -- into Google.

Is Obamacare Challenging

Two statements explain the huge failure of Obamacare. One is by President Barack Obama, the other is about him. The first was made in St. Paul, Minnesota, at the end of the 2008 primary campaign, when candidate Obama predicted that generations would look back and see his nomination as “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” Couple this with the assessment of his closest aide, Valerie Jarrett, about his exceptionalism. “He knows exactly how smart he is,” she told Obama biographer David Remnick. “And he knows that he has the

Nearly two weeks after the federal government launched the online Health Insurance Marketplace at HealthCare.gov, individuals who have successfully used the choked-up website to enroll for a subsidized health insurance plan have reached a status akin to urban legend: Everyone has heard of them, but very few people have actually met one. The Miami Herald searched high and low for individuals who completed enrollment for a subsidized health plan through the marketplace, also called an exchange, launched by the federal government on Oct. 1 in 36 states, including Florida.

Obama as Chaos

Amid all the charges and countercharges in Washington over the government shutdown, there is at least one common theme: Barack Obama’s various charges always lead to a dead end. They are chaos, and chaos is hard to understand, much less refute. By that I mean when the president takes up a line of argument against his opponents, it cannot really be taken seriously — not just because it is usually not factual, but also because it always contradicts positions that Obama himself has taken earlier or things he has previously asserted. Whom to believe — Obama 1.0, Obama 2.0, or

Eberly has managed the Claude Moore Colonial Farm for 32 years.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
