This is not an “either-or” proposition.
The man is both monumentally incompetent AND a liar.
“This is not an either-or proposition.
The man is both monumentally incompetent AND a liar.”
Exactly. He lies to cover up his abject incompetence and stupidity.
The community organizer doesn't have a clue and lies as easy as he breaths.
He has our country in such a mess it will take a long time to get US straight again.
Exactly. Even many conservatives fail to understand this.
He is little more than a teleprompter reader. He is incredibly evil and not very smart.
His concerns are only what makes him feel good. This includes (in approximate order of priority):
sticking it to whitey
revenge on America
feeling important by giving speeches and appearing on tv
hobnobbing with celebrities
pretending to be an intellectual by learning to parrot a few stock phrases (”punching above their weight class” was one of my favorites. See this (sad/hilarious) link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erYpXzE9Pxs)
pretending to be an intellectual by learning to operate a Blackberry
pretending to be an intellectual by claiming to have an academic record and book authorship
pretending to be an intellectual by carrying around a book
He is not the architect of any of this. He is mostly clueless about what goes on and his handlers keep him in line by several means:
allowing him the delusion that he is smart and in charge
controlling his drug access
threatening to expose his sexual preferences
threatening to expose his origins
Sometimes the speeches and tv appearances are unpleasant for him rather than a means of stroking his ego. He does not like questions because he has no answers. He much prefers the adoring sycophants applauding him.
Reasons he is so often late for events:
drug balance needs to stabilize
sticking it to whitey
petty need to inconvenience others in order to “prove” he is more important (more ego gratification)
contempt for those he inconveniences
Why he lies:
he is told to
he often does not even understand the lies he is reading from the teleprompter
(see also reasons for other behavior above)
it’s a deeply ingrained habit. He lies even when he doesn’t need to
he is afraid that if he ever allows any truth to escape, the whole thing might start to unravel
whatever the current lie is, it’s probably covering up for some previous lie
The first part of that depends entirely on just what his intentions are.
The reason they are having trouble coming to grips with this is that the left would then have to admit that they were either stupid enough to be duped or undiscerning enough to fail to detect incompetence. Either one is an admission they are not going to make, as they earn their bread selling the authority of their investigative and analytical abilities.
That ain't gonna happen.
So, they stall with puff pieces like this selling pretended insight.
“The man is both monumentally incompetent AND a liar.”
True but he was not INSTALLED as president for his competency, the people who ENGINEERED his ascent to the whitehouse were under no illusion that he was competent to do anything more complicated than reading a teleprompter. He actually may be stupid enough to have believed he was the man for the job but not those who arranged this disaster. Those who actually voted for him were dupes of every known category from the totally uneducated to those who line the walls of their offices with framed diplomas, “educated” far beyond their native intelligence and incapable of a logical sequence of thought, smugly believing in their own superiority for no actual reason whatsoever.
The people who put this mountebank in the white house are sitting somewhere laughing their asses off at how easy it was to make fools of the Americans.
Obama is a puppet but I am actually beginning to wonder if he is too stupid to even realize that he IS a puppet.
