Obama "Intellectually Exhausted, Out of Ideas, Energy"
The American Thinker ^ | Geoffrey P. Hunt

Posted on 08/16/2012 6:13:09 AM PDT by Lakeshark

Mitt Romney finally caught up with the rest of us via a fiery speech in Ohio on Tuesday where he proclaimed three simple truths that frame Barack Obama: "Intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, and out of energy."

Those lines are still too charitable; Obama has been intellectually barren from the beginning. Yet it is irrefutable -- to steal an apt word from Paul Ryan describing Obama's raiding Medicare to finance ObamaCare -- that Obama's idea inventory consists of the expired date-stamped perishables of the collectivist state -- tax, confiscate, redistribute, and impoverish.
**snip**
Paul Ryan represents everything that Obama and the Democrats will never be: intellectually fertile, economically and historically literate, unimpeachably rigorous and honest. And these are only Paul Ryan's character virtues. His ideas and convictions are even better. And he's the most likeable politician in town.

Clarity is a rarely used tonic. The word itself has yet to be overexposed and deliberately obfuscated, unlike the word transparent. Of course, the phrase "let me be perfectly clear" is usually a prelude to anything but -- it was first attributed to Richard Nixon, then expropriated by Bill Clinton, and now it is a common preamble to Barack Obama's frequent deceptions. Yet clarity is a refreshingly bracing noun in an age where deliberate distortions, bald-faced lies, shameless plagiarism, and muddled thinking have become the new normal.

“...Obama “Intellectually Exhausted, Out of Ideas, Energy”...”

It’s...pretty much been that way most of his life...from what I can see.

..ACtually...

Substitute ANY Liberal name instead of Obama and it pretty much rings true.

He was out of ideas by about 1970. Too bad he didn’t run out of energy at the same time.

"His entire supply of ideas came out of a book published by Saul Alinsky in 1971"

Give the guy credit: he's also using ideas that were published in 1848 and 1867.

Well, maybe he should take a breather, go out and play some golf or something.

Now how could Obozo exhaust something he’s never used? Killed it, maybe, through snorting coke.

What else has Obama done other than being a lesser Sharpton, only talking about Fluke condoms, murdering babies through abortion, gay rights or muslim love making?

He's a Jimmy Carter that walks with a pimp limp, jogging on stage and looking cool.

"Pimp limp" -- hadn't heard that one. I might have had to invent "thug roll" or "thug stroll" myself (think of that old Run-DMC movie, a hideously-revealing self-portrait of some thuggy rappers 10 years ago).

Got any others current out in "the com-MUNE-a-tee"?

“I think the biggest demoralizer for him was the turnout at CFA.”

What was that?

Obama never had ideas or intellect to begin with.

He's so damn cool dancin' down the steps from Air Force 1. The day will come when a misstep will bring his sorry self tumbling down to an uncool faceplant on the tarmac. That video will become the hallmark of his presidency etched in infamy.

"......Obama has been intellectually barren from the beginning....."

With Valerie Jarrett as his Chief Advisor/Consigliere, the above statement becomes even more CLEAR.
