Skip to comments.New theory: Maybe Obama’s too smart and sensitive to be a good president

If this is what the left needs to tell itself to come to terms with the prospect of defeat, so be it. We all find our own paths through the Kubler-Ross model, my friends. Dont mock someone just because theyre momentarily stuck on stage one.
Bill Clinton allegedly thinks Os incompetent and an amateur, but I guess this theory works too:
As devotees of Barack Obama know all too well, qualities that made him so attractive as a candidate an affinity for subtle arguments, a tendency to carefully weigh his options have at times proved less useful in his role as president. That carefulness has been read as indecisiveness. The subtle arguments have sounded, to some ears, like hedging. In response, the president has simplified his rhetoric
To many who were feverishly devoted to Obamas candidacy four years ago, what was most exciting wasnt just the idea that American voters could elect a black man. It was the idea that we could elect and be represented by someone who was unapologetically intellectual. But in the current political climate, intellectual can too often equal ineffectual. Thanks to a system thats broken by partisanship and pandering to the lowest common denominator, being in politics even being the president may have less to do with holding your ground than holding your nose.
Its hard not to come away from the Vanity Fair article without feeling, strangely enough, that the White House is holding Obama back.

Cunning and cold maybe, smart and sensitive...not so much.
Obama should be replaced. As soon as possible.
If Obozo is such a bright guy, why are all of his records sealed?
As narcissistic as he is, one would think he would have
them engraved on a Natl. Monument .
I would put it this way : America first Obama last!
I’d laugh. Except, he’s president.
They’re finally having to admit he’s a failure, and now they’re grasping for some way for it not to be his fault.
Yes. Absolutely. Let’s go with that and choose a new prez.
The comments below this LATimes opinion piece are pretty amazing. Mostly anti-intellectual Obama.
The Austrian language
I could go on and on. The guy is clearly not bright. And the Liberals who look up to him as a man of genius are simply showcasing how shallow and stupid they are.
Obama knows of what you speak and likely agrees with your philosophy. The thing is.. you have a difference in philosophy.
I’m betting he’s willing to sacrifice anything for his and the world’s ends, and that it will come to pass.
Fine by me. Send him packing. We need a dumber, more insensitive President.
He’s too something, but, “smart” nor “sensitive” were the words coming to mind!
New Theory: It doesn’t matter that he didn’t write either ‘autobiography’. He meant well by having Ayers write it for him. He’s just a good guy. Can’t we all grasp that!!!!?????????????? Ok, you may VOMIT now!
He is an evil psychopath. Bright-—yes, but not intellectual—he is too lazy and damaged his brain with drugs during teenage years and young adult years-—maybe still.
I remember them trying to defend Carter this way too when it was obvious he was a washout.
America is just not good enough for him, I suggest he move to where his abilities will be appreciated... like Kenya
Bright? Do 57 states and corpsemen agree with you on that?
He understands the evil eye, but an eagle eye, he simply cannot comprehend.
It’s not racialist or whatever PC word Lamont Hill wants to make up. It’s an American thing. 0bama and his type wouldn’t understand.
Yup, that guy is so bright he has to put a bucket over his head so the sun can come up.
Can someone PLEASE give me one iota of objective evidence that Barak Obama is smart? Take away his teleprompter and the man can barely form grammatically correct sentences.
And I firmly believe that the reason his education records are sealed is that they do not exist.
This is not a man who has had the education he claims.
Given his obsessive sececy over school transcripts, I’d say you are probably correct.
That’s fine. The Kenya is too good for us. Just too smart and good. So, let’s rectify the problem and send him packing in November.
Kenya = Kenyan.
There is no evidence of Obama having an above average intelligence.
If he is so intelligent, he should be able to figure out what he is doing wrong.
Obama is too stupid to be an idiot.
Oh good grief! What horse hockey!
“I don’t know whether to laugh or cry”
They’re already staging a graceful exit from the White House.......which he’ll flub by having toilet paper hanging out of the back of his pants as he leaves....hopefully for good.
What's really terrifying is the knowledge that many libs would gladly elect a dictator. But most libs have a totalitarian, big-government-is-best streak in them anyway.
Brilliant lawyre at Sidley-Austin...insignificant record
Brilliant as a community organizer...most dangerous neighborhood in Chicago.
Lowest property values, no commerce, no
industry but alot of gang-bangers, prostitutes and of course section 8 housing.
He could’nt afford his house except that now imprisoned Tony Rezko gave Zer0 a sweetheart deal.
What a genius!
His life story reads like a good fiction book. The best was a composite girl friend because they will not release any part of this frauds life to the public.
I would say the damage done by the Obama-Pelousi-Reid triumvirate has been quite impressive, in a horrible way. They passed socialized medicine and broke into the treasury. 2 communist judges, and much more...
He had the chance and became a "community organizer". I suppose we should free him up again though, just to see how beautifully he blooms.
I remember this also. The press tried to tell us Carter was the smartest president ever, but that he was hampered by his desire to micromanage everything.
