Obama “too talented” to bother meeting with Sebelius
Allen B West . com ^ | 9 Dec 2013 | Allen West

Posted on 12/09/2013 9:18:09 AM PST by hattend

Guess how many times President Obama met one-on-one with Secretary Kathleen Sebelius from July 12, 2010 to November 30, 2013? According to Peter Schweizer of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) writing in Politico, that number would be ZERO.

We have an absent president whose best attribute is his ability to deflect responsibility and blame others.

When I was in the military we prided ourselves in conducting meetings, briefings, that kept commanders informed, enabling them to make necessary decisions. A fundamental part of conducting business was preparing “Commanders Intent and Guidance” which provided the purpose, key tasks, and end state allowing the staff to plan, brief, update, and execute critical missions.

As a staff officer myself, I always held pre-meetings to make sure we had all the possible issues covered before going to the boss. As a Battalion Executive Officer, second in command, it was my responsibility to prepare the staff prior to our weekly Command and Staff briefing to the Battalion and subordinate commanders — after all we worked for them.

At any time I could articulate the maintenance, supply, budget, and personnel issues of the Battalion. That was my duty, to know the details and keep the Commander informed. My time as a young Battery (Company) Commander, Brigade Operations Officer, and Battalion Executive Officer prepared me to be a Battalion Commander myself. I knew how to issue guidance and intent in order to improve the functionality of our staff.

Obviously, that’s not the case with our so-called Commander-in-Chief.

Remember when he said in a November 14 press conference, “I was not informed directly that the website would not be working as—the way it was supposed to. Had I been informed, I wouldn’t be going out saying, ‘Boy, this is going to be great.’ You know, I’m accused of a lot of things, but I don’t think I’m stupid enough to go around saying, ‘this is going to be like shopping on Amazon or Travelocity,’ a week before the website opens, if I thought that it wasn’t going to work. So, clearly, we and I did not have enough awareness about the problems in the website.”

Oh come on, clearly you are that stupid, not to mention irresponsible and incompetent. What leader would hold not a single one-on-one meeting with the person responsible for his “signature policy initiative?” What leader would then come out and speak as though he had complete knowledge of the operation and that it was running smoothly? What leader would then come back and say “uh, I didn’t know anything and no one told me anything — and expect us to believe him?

Schweizer says close advisers like Valerie Jarrett say the problem is Obama “knows exactly how smart he is” and has “been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do. He would never be satisfied with what ordinary people do.”

I have a response for that assertion and it’s two words: first word, large bovine animal with horns. I think President Obama describes himself aptly when he says the trait he deplores most in himself is that “there’s a laziness in me.”

America has an absent, absent-minded president who possesses no skills beyond the delivery of rhetoric. Too many people felt a tingle running up their leg and voted for this brazenly empty suit – TWICE (in fact some people voted more than twice in the election, but that’s another story).

Obama doesn’t know what questions to ask, and is too lazy to do so anyway. But hey, he plays an awesome round of golf!

Chime in, what’s your assessment of the intellectual capacity of President Barack Hussein Obama? You know, back in 2010 I referred to him as one of the dumbest individuals ever. I stand by my assessment — community organizers are just low-level socialist agitators, perfect for campaigning, but not much else.

One wonders whether or not those who say that the Obamadork has anything greater than sub-normal IQ realize what that does to their believability.

Note to them: YOUR president is not smart.

At all.

Sorry, but those of us who have actually completed demanding intellectual projects see this immediately.

If you do not, you are obviously even more stupid than he.

Kathleen Sebelius is no prize to gaze upon and a boring speaker, but I thought Barry's heart throbs were guys (aka Reggie Love and Rahm Emanuel). This is sexism on the part of POTUS.

Obama is like the demolition crew in a building project. When the old is torn down and no longer functioning, his job is done. He can’t build anything and he doesn’t care as long as the old is destroyed.

Maybe Obama is real smart. I would not want to meet with her one time.

Not so much “too talented” as “no idea what his job is supposed to be”. Willful ignorance and operating on automatic pilot, without reference to the actual conditions outside the bubble in which he has confined himself, may not be enough to establish “plausible deniability” later on.

Valerie Jarrett is sure giving it a valiant try. But even she cannot yell loudly enough to get The Won to pay attention to the rapidly deteriorating circumstances that are encompassing the entire Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut (or “Spite Hut”).

How many people does the President, any President, ever meet with one on one?

Very few.

why would a narcissist mental giant hide his college transcripts?

Wouldn’t he want the world to see how much smarter he is then the rest of us?

Good afternoon. I hope you are doing well.

Oh come on, clearly you [0bama] are that stupid, not to mention irresponsible and incompetent.

I believe that 0bama is not incompetent or stupid. Every manager should know that you can delegate duties, but you can never delegate responsibility.

Imho, this "health care" law and website were designed to fail.

His “job” is to read a teleprompter and act cool. Who is running the country? Obviously it ain’t BO.

“Kathleen Sebelius is no prize to gaze upon and a boring speaker,”

Please, she couldn’t attend any other meetings with the Mahdi because the SS didn’t provide her with a parking space for her broom stick.

“why would a narcissist mental giant hide his college transcripts?”

He probably had OK grades, not great. I think he has above average intelligence as all of our Presidents typically do. Obviously, there was a reason for hiding his transcripts. I believe it was because he was a stoner. He slid by. He was smart and charismatic enough to get by without really trying too hard. I think the other potential answer is he listed his citizenship as INDONESIAN. He also probably got into Columbia on a scholarship because of his parents, his complexion and foreigner status. He got into Oxidental College because he was an Indonesian African American.

I still remember when the MSM made a big deal about how smart Al Gore was because he had something like 1500 on his SAT’s. They called W a dummy because he only got 1350 on his SAT’s. Although he also flew jet fighters and they do not let dummies fly jet fighters. They did the same thing with John F. Kerry. He got 1450 on his SAT’s and did you know he served in Vietnam? Therefore, it would be a logical assumption that if they did not show Obama’s test scores, it would be because they were bad. This may very well have been the reason. However, I still think someday, maybe 50 years from now, someone will find a copy of his transcripts and under citizenship it will say: Indonesian.

The only score more closely guarded than Baraq’s LSATs is his golf score.

I agree with you. Although when I talk to liberals I tell them he hides his grades because he barely made it through school because he is stupid.

They won’t believe Indonesian thing and they cannot come up with any proof of academic excellence.

Funny you should mention it — I've always thought of Kathleen Sebelius as a bat out of Hell with delusions of adequacy.

Her greatest “accomplishment” before being elevated to HHS Sec. was blocking development of a clean coal power plant in Kansas, thereby destroying a few thousand well paid potential jobs and preventing vitally needed electric power development. Of course, that’s the kind of thing the Mahdi admires, so it made her a perfect candidate for a cabinet job.
