He is intellectually about as shallow as any president in history, possibly the most. Warren G. Harding appears to be a towering intellect in comparison. He was waifed along on the Zephyrs of affirmative action and has not the least idea of how the world works, nor his place in it, nor how this nation came to be.
When we speculate on Obama’s intelligence based on what he has done to the country in his short tenure, we usually assume he is really trying to get this country on its feet again. That is an error. If we assume the opposite, that he is trying to destroy the country, he is succeeding brilliantly. I don’t believe that he is the braintrust behind this coup, but he has certainly proven a useful idiot to those in charge. I wish I knew who “those in charge” were.
I agree that operationally he has been effective in destroying the country. I think we wants to turn America into a socialist utopia, sort of the kind of country a lot of American leftist imagine Sweden was in 1970. I do not think we means to harm the country, it’s just that he is in thrall to a bunch of half-baked and outdated collectivists notions.
Just follow the money and be ready for long trip.
