Barack Obama's Square Box [The least qualified person ever to be elected president]
The American Spectator ^ | June 18, 2010 | Daniel Oliver

Posted on 06/18/2010 12:30:12 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

When John F. Kennedy Jr.'s plane crashed into Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, in July 1999 some observers said he had gotten himself into a "square box," meaning that he had run into the limits of his experience and his imagination.

Barack Obama is in a square box, and observers are now beginning to talk about his inevitable crash.

There was some question about JFK Jr.'s flying experience. There's no dispute about Barack Obama's executive experience: he has none. In fact, he is the least qualified person ever to be elected president.

Prior to being elected, he had done almost nothing. Certainly nothing requiring, or teaching, executive ability.

He served in some capacity as a "community organizer," which Sarah Palin might say is like running a Sunday-school picnic, but without the kids.

He worked as a civil-rights attorney, whatever that means. And he taught at a law school, which may be why he always sounds as if he's lecturing to twenty-somethings.

He served in the Illinois legislature for a few years, but spent most of his time voting "present." Then he served in the U.S. Senate, but for only two years.

Would the directors of any mid-sized company have asked him to be its CEO? He wouldn't even have qualified for -- in Ross Perot's memorable phrase -- middle management.

He is a man without significant executive experience in life.

He also seems to have little imagination. His supporters say he is tremendously brilliant. Maybe. But how do we know? Obama has never released his college or law-school grades, and, given the educational institutions he attended (Columbia College and Harvard Law School), we are entitled to assume he may have been an affirmative-action admittee. As he was to the White House.(continued)

Anything that would get him into a Bureau of Prisons square-box would be fine with me.

So true...and THAT's going to leave a mark too...

My guess is Barry’s grades were worse than Dubya’s, so he can’t release them because it would belie all that bravo sierra about being brilliant.

RE :” There’s no dispute about Barack Obama’s executive experience: he has none. In fact, he is the least qualified person ever to be elected president. Prior to being elected, he had done almost nothing. Certainly nothing requiring, or teaching, executive ability.

In a way this is a defense of Obama because many of you folks keep pinging me to tell me that Obama is destroying this country on purpose and that he hates his own family. But this kind of shows that much of what he is doing could possibly be because he is clueless. Maybe he believes that running up huge debts jumpstarts the economy, or that disarming us will make dangerous dictators love us. Jimmy Carter believed that.

But I have noticed that Obama is very dishonest and politically cynical, something I didnt see in Carter. He knew the stimulus plan congress sent to him didnt do what he claimed it was (it was not a private sector jobs bill) or that he was NOT reaching out to Republicans. That makes it hard to believe good about him.

Couple that with his elitist narcissistic arrogance, his radical enablers/puppetmasters and you get a toxic combination...a destroyer-in-chief.

Obamma is also the product of the Disneyfication of the old cautionary tales. In his view, the sky really is falling, the grasshopper deserves the ants’ food stores, the golden goose is immortal, everyone who cries “wolf” is telling the truth, it is perfectly safe to have houses made of straw, and he can fly as close to the sun as he wants without consequence.

And we actually have his fellow ass-wipe Harry Reid to thank...’cuz when Little ADHD Barry started getting BORED in the Senate, Harry decided it was time to socially promote him to the Presidency. We’re in a world of hurt because this infantile man wasn’t being sufficiently entertained.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The only thing I know that is tremendous is his ego and that is totally inspired by imagination. I have never seen anyone with so little humility yet so much to be humble about. Of course the distance between his huge ears and ground level IS slightly above average.

absolutely

if Baraq was a 1600 SAT, 4.0 in college, and ripped the LSAT you'd see those all over the internet.

instead they're in a "lockbox" with his birth cert so you know they were dubious at best.

thank the MSM for our first affirmative action president

Affirmative action admitee. Great term. And true.

When all this is done, the people who shepherded him into the white house need to be prosecuted. Their little game here is damn dangerous. In a post 9/11 world, the US presidency is no place for on the job training. But here we are and he is the acting president. I still shake my head that we are in the position we are in given the dangerous makeup of the world. It would be scary enough with a competant patriotic American in office. We don’t have a leader, we have a street punk in a $1,000 suit.
And living like a king on our dime.

You are probably right but why is that? Doesn't the MSM live here, too? Do they honestly want to be complicit in the destruction of the US? This is waaaaay beyond just some leftist programs a la LBJ or Clinton- this is the biggest power grab, attack of the private sector, lurch to socialism that this country has ever seen. I keep thinking that the press is going to have an epiphany and realize just how dangerous and destructive this man is. Maybe not...

"In fact, he is the least qualified person ever to be elected president."

Where are the skimmer ships?
The Dutch offered to send some.
This is simple arithmetic.
Hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil spilling.
You need hundreds of ships to skim that up.
And you don't need an advanced degree from Columbia or Harvard to do the math.
So when will the president figure this out?
100 days from now? 200? A year?
Who in the media will ask him?

His incompetence in office has either proved that there are no puppetmasters (otherwise someone would have advised him to stop playing the fool) or, if he does have someone pulling his strings, they are dumb as dirt...because Obama and his ship of fools are sailing straight into a storm of insurrection.

Case in point, if the GOP takes back the House and Senate in November, they will, by assuming control of the Committees, have the power to start issuing subpoenas.

As we speak, Darrell Issa is drawing up plans to bring down the whole crooked Obama machine.

JFK, Jr., was a man of modest ability and 2nd rate mind who was pushed his entire life until he ended up dead in his airplane, taking both his wife and sister-in-law with him. I believe he failed the bar three times (perhap because he was forced into being a lawyer). He failed in business despite the millions he had in backing, plus the Kennedy Fixers — the thugs who the old bastard Joe created to follow all his sons and grandsons and save themselves from themselves (see: Chappaquiddik). The summer he died I was doing some 135 flying on the Cape and Islands. The sky and sea often blended together in low visability, with the vis dropping to less than a mile with no warning. Difficult flying for someone with an ATP and thousands of hours of experience. When he rejected his instructor’s offer to accompany him on what was guaranteed to be IMC, he showed the same arrogance of privilege he had been taught his entire life. Or perhaps he felt driven to show how well he could do alone. He got into IMC and promptly died, hitting the ocean at a descent rate of 2,200 feel per minute in either a spiraling turn or a spin. Sort of like what Obama is experiencing now with the Gulf Spill.

Obama tries to operate, but being a pathological narcissist makes him feel that nobody else exists. And narcissists by definition can’t see that they have a problem; it’s always somebody else who has the problem and needs to change

The worst part of all of this is that dimocrats and their supporters do not face the same criminal consequences that normal people do.

But even pathological narcissists eventually (with some notable exceptions )have that dreaded head-on collision with reality.

And IMO Obama is getting awfully close to his.

If he picks up a paper or turns on a TV, he is going to learn that his rats are abandoning ship.

At first it'll bother him unconsciously...with little bouts of depression as the truth tries to push through to the surface. He'll schedule more and more golf as his avoidance behavior intensifies. He'll notice (or think he notices) his staff whispering about him in the hallways and behind his back.

Drip, drip, drip...

And living like a king on our dime.

Has anyone kept track of the hours he's put on Air Force One (and accompanying vehicles?)
His shopping trips?
Trips to see Broadway shows?
Tourist trips to foreign countries on distant continents?

To use his own words, "We are tired of words; we don't want to hear more words; we want effective action and results."

Minimal competence is expected, not an option.

If you can't find good help, just try looking beyond the clueless progressive radical National Socialist reservation...
