There is a real possibility, a strong likelihood, that President Obama knows nothing of the nuts and bolts, the details and realities of the positions he promotes. He rides the Starship Air Force One, thrills adolescent crowds and frames himself with federal employees while orating vapid clichés dowsed in demagoguery.
He drives the fancy car but needs help filling it with gas and couldn't point to the air filter if you popped the hood. Imagery sans leadership. Celebrity is the accomplishment here, and adoration is the metric. Polls demonstrate people approve more of him and less of his execution of the responsibilities of office. This Presidency is therefore wrapped in a managed personal imagery that supersedes the measure of ability.
He speaks yet says nothing. He exists before the camera scripted to generalities and clichés. Once this is understood, we can sense there is no more. True leadership and real understanding of the issues just aren't there. Recall a few instances.
There was the Paul Ryan Obamacare summit in which Ryan began to peel back the skin on the Affordable Care Act. Ryan began reading from the bill itself, and as he did Obama's eyes glazed over. When Ryan was finished, Obama had nothing of substance to say. Dismissive and aloof, he pushed out a short narrative of banalities and bromides.
Did Obama know enough to defend his own program?
There was also the Univision interview in which Obama declared that George W. Bush began Fast and Furious back in 2007. This is inherently false. There was a similar program, granted. But, the program had ended and, by the way, the program attempted to capture gun runners. Two glaring differences. But did Obama know these facts? At first one thinks there is a twisting of the truth by the President.

Obama sure loves to play golf.
“Doesn’t understand economics”
The real question will be his role when the inevitable collapse comes. If the bankers decide he should take all of the blame, the GOP will come out looking like geniuses - and one of theirs (probably Jeb) will get to be the next puppet. The little Weathermen will be destroyed, regardless, and they know it. That's why they are freaking out over the potential collapse trigger of the sequester, and doing dumb things like attacking Bob Woodward. Their survival depends on keeping the borrowing-and-spending going as long as possible.
What’s worse is I think there’s a puppet master(s) behind this buffoon whose mission is to destroy us.
It was pretty obvious in the debates that he knows very little and isn’t all that smart. Romney messed up by trying to coast after the first debate.
**Whats worse is I think theres a puppet master(s) behind this buffoon whose mission is to destroy us.**
Based on the total control of the election process, the media and Congressional Democrats - there does appear to be a huge machine operating.
Remember the BO mantra: “never let a crisis go to waste”??
Some genius in the administration determined ‘why not create catastrophic crises and blame others?’.
We now have seen: the housing crisis, the healthcare crisis, employment crisis, gas price crisis, education crisis, immigration crisis. Wait until they get their hands on all resources/manufacturing related to FOOD, GUNS, TRANSPORTATION, ENERGY, WATER and other essential production and related raw materials.
Rush Limbaugh says President Obama's goal is to eliminate the Republican party as a viable party, and toward that end He must have constant crisis, turmoil, chaos. And so He will never achieve any true bipartisan compromise because that would not fit the plan. You know, you do have to admit...if this is somehow on the wrong track, the President's had an awfully long time to refudiate it.
