Sorry world, we elected Alfred E. Neuman
Charleston (WV) Daily Mail ^ | February 29, 2012 | Don Surber

Posted on 03/01/2012 5:30:13 AM PST by Mustang Driver

Barack Obama is a nice guy who has degrees from prestigious institutions. He speaks well and writes well, but he is nonetheless an idiot because he sees things only through the lens of himself. Where others hold a window into the world, he holds a mirror. His supporters say he plays three-dimensional chess. He cannot even play checkers. Consider his apology to Afghanistan for the accidental burning of a few Korans. Instead of calming thing down, his apology was used by the enemy to rationalize a new wave of violence in Kabul.

President Obama thinks that is all A-OK.

From ABC News:

"President Obama said his formal apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Korans by U.S. troops last week has “calmed things down” after the incident sparked an outbreak of violence across the country."

“We’re not out of the woods yet,” Obama said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Bob Woodruff at the White House. “But my criteria in any decision I make, getting recommendations from folks who are actually on the ground, is what is going to best protect our folks and make sure that they can accomplish their mission.”

"The President’s comments came just hours before a formal White House dinner to honor Iraq War veterans, some of whom have also served in Afghanistan and may be redeploying there to assist ongoing U.S. military operations."

How did he calm things down? The story does not say.

Obama never learned HOW to think, only WHAT to think.

He knows one solution to every problem- a government program.

And his ‘minders’ know he is a talented idiot who can recite the lines he is given.

Several mistakes in the first two sentences. He's not nice. He's evil. He doesn't do his own writing. He reads well. He's not an idiot, he's an evil puppet. And he see things only through the lense of himself because he has severe Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Now, I'll read the rest of the article.

True.

He speaks well

No, he reads out loud well.

and writes well,

Unmitigated hogwash.

I've forgotten, is this author one of the "conservatives" who is pushing Romney because he is "electable"? It would certainly be consistent with his ability to repeat fantastic fabrications as if they are true.

Saw Hillary last night on TV. She's really let herself go. No coif, no makeup.

I think she likes to dress that way.

Probably, when she was running for president, she hated getting groomed in the morning.

Why do some believe you must say something nice about Barack and then blame ignorance for his actions?

Obama HATES AMERICA!!

He wants to destroy the Constitution, our economy, our industry, our healthcare, our energy production, our Military and defense industry.

This is NOT because he’s dumb, it is because he is evil!

...who has degrees from prestigious institutions.

...given to him no doubt, under the "affirmative action" programs at these "prestigious institutions".

....why else would Obama withhold any evidence of his success or failure at these institutions?

...just how he got into the position he's in is a mystery, and will remain so until all his "records" are unearthed.

Someone has access to Obama records, and will give them up.

My hope for our country that it is soon.

“Barack Obama is a nice guy who has degrees from prestigious institutions. He speaks well and writes well”.....

Lost me at the opening sentence, for several reasons. First, Barack Obama is NOT a “nice guy”. He is an arrogant narcissistic hypocrite who puts on a show of empathy and compassion but in reality is a self-deluded, self-serving, lazy jerk. Two, we don’t actually know that Barack Obama holds degrees from prestigious institutions. We have been told he attended “prestigious institutions”, but we know nothing of the results. By contrast, we knew GWBs GPA and SAT scores. Three, there is ample evidence that Barack Obama knows how to read the words of others from a TelePrompter, but there is also ample evidence that without a crutch, Obama is a tongue-tied, stumblebum when it comes to speechfyin’. Finally, it is contended that Barack Obama is a good writer, based on two self-serving books he purportedly wrote; however, there is strong evidence available that shows he likely did NOT pen those books but that they are the work of others (eg, the despicable Bill Ayres). So, the author of this “news analysis” needs to rethink his positions, in my view.

- writes well - not verified - Dreams of my Father apparently effectively ghost written by another
- an idiot - check
- sees things only through the lens of himself - check
- where others hold a window into the world, he holds a mirror - check
- his apology to Afghanistan for the accidental burning of a few Korans. Instead of calming thing down, his apology was used by the enemy to rationalize a new wave of violence in Kabul - check
- thinks that is all A-OK - except that "there's more to get done" (read "America's still recognizable and functioning.")

Add to this list:

- further left than the Socialist Party member of Congress - check

Obama and his cohorts don’t have a foreign policy that can be respected by our friends or enemies.

Obama’s idea is for a foreign policy of apologies. What enemy is going to view that as a strong government or as a strong country? In fact, it makes us look weak, and weakness invites aggression. That’s exactly what’s happening in Afghanistan and with Iran, where the enemy is taking advantage of our weak president and our weak military, to advance their causes.

Obama’s foreign policy is about ending any conflicts we might be involved in, and then figuring out how to “calm down” the enemy with apologies.

This is the stupidest leader ever in the history of government. Bar none. And, that’s why, we will be going to war far more often in the future. Weakness invites aggression, and aggression always ends up in wars. 9/11 was as a result of a weak president, who didn’t want to engage the enemy, even when the enemy was aggressively trying to kill Americans and destroy American property all over the world.

There is a clear pattern to America’s foreign policy, and that is that, every time a democrat is elected president, the enemy is strengthened and becomes more aggressive, while the U.S. downsizes its military and retreats from the world. It then takes a republican administration to rebuild the military, which is what the enemy understands as strength. Downsizing and retreat never wins wars, and for sure, it never wins respect.

I agree he is an idiot, but neither is he a nice guy - arrogant and narcissistic - nor a good speaker - ever heard him when he's not on the teleprompter?

Obama is NOT inept. He is NOT stupid. He is a very competent and, therefore, very dangerous progressive. He has been extremely successful in moving the U.S. towards the progressives’ ultimate goal of a fascist-collective state.

The “idiot” Obama has successfully taken over 1/5 of the U.S. economy (healthcare).

The “inept” Obama has successfully shredded the Constitution time and again with impunity (making recess appointments while Congress isn’t in recess is just one example).

The “moron” Obama has time and again been able to spend money the government doesn’t have that will eventually destroy the U.S. dollar and the U.S. economy.

No one can be that successful at “fundamentally transforming America” — and he has been — if he is a fool.

The goals of the progressive movement and Marxism are identical. Marx saw immediate revolution as the means to achieve an end. Progressives want the same end but are willing to achieve those ends by a slow, “progressive” march over time.

Think Obama a fool at your own peril. He knows exactly what he is doing.

I forgot to add that he has also increased government dependency among the masses to an alarming degree. In a fascist-collective state, all people are completely dependent on their government for their very survival.

There are how many people in America that now depend on the government? This was a giant leap towards achieving the progressive paradise he wants.

Obama is far from inept. He knows what he is doing and he is doing exactly what he wants.

Maybe Ted Bundy was genuinely polite and personable. Zero is a wannabe street thug who likes to “accidentally” flip people off and to suggest that *other people* engage in physical violence. (He’d probably have better manners if he were an actual sociopath.)

Without his Barack-O-prompter, he cannot speak as well as a 1900 high school graduate.

No one has ever seen his writing, so where did that claim come from?

In actuality, Barack Hussein Hushpuppy limpd*ck Obama is a vapid dork...even more vapid and more dorky than RINOmney.

He speaks well and writes well,

I am continually amazed and flummoxed (even bumfuzzled...thank you, Bobby Bowden!) that anyone perceives this incompetent as someone who speaks and writes well.

First of all, we know nothing of his writings since his actual work in any school has been locked-down...(his multiple autobiographies do not count, since he likely did not write them...)

His speaking is atrocious...even with the TOTUS. I cannot listen to his presentation for a minute without turning him off. I have listened to and benefit from many black preachers over the years and up to the present...he does not have the presentation skills of someone who can present or persuade.
