Skip to comments.Why Obama is Uneducated
Posted on 02/25/2014 6:43:52 AM PST by SeekAndFind
And a fact about Obama's upbringing is that it was defined by fiction. Clergyman Hosea Ballou said, "Education commences at the mother's knee...," but not only was Obama's mother's knee not around all the time, but what an odd knee it was. Her father had given her his first name, Stanley, because he'd wanted a boy, and Stanley Ann Dunham's personal development reflected that bizarre beginning. She attended Mercer Island High in Seattle, which had a wing known as "anarchy alley" that was infested with radical leftist teachers. It is said that Dunham "thrived" in that atmosphere, and she became a committed left-wing atheist herself. Then there was Obama's mentor in Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis, a pornographic-novel writer and anti-white, card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA. And how radical were Obama's leftist grandparents, with whom he lived in the Aloha State? Obama's grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham, was the one who chose Davis to be scrambler of young Barry's brains.
The point is that there was no prominent person in the young Obama's life who could or would expose him to reality. It was all anti-American, anti-Western isms and destructive schism. This brings us to Obama's mind-numbingly ridiculous description of his 2008 campaign travels: "I've now been in 57 states; I think, one left to go." Where does such a bizarre mistake come from? After all, that there are 50 states is drummed into every American child so that it just instinctively rolls off the tongue: 50 states, 50 states, 50 states.... That is, again, every "American child."

...can one be “educated” and indoctrinated both ???
Semper Watching !
Obama is the Poster Boy for what happens when you try to educate someone beyond their native intelligence.
Education commences at the mother’s knee and other joints.
For a man who is supposedly from Hawaii to say “57 states” is doubly weird.
There are 57 states in the Organization of Islamic Countries.
there are 57 islamic states....I guess that’s what is buzzing around in his brain box.
Who tried to do that?
Uneducated? Depends on the education we’re talking about. He certainly spanked half the US to win two elections in a row. Obviously he knows something.
Being dismissive and trivializing an opponent leads to underestimating them and losing. We did just that.
The only people we know of that have ties to him, he downplays the association (Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright) or coyly omits the association (referring to Frank Marshall Davis cryptically as "Frank" in his AUTO-BIOGRAPHY).
Oh. My fave Obama pronouncement: declaring Hawaii to be a part of Asia at an AIPAC meeting a few years ago.
Is there anybody he looks up to as a mentor who ISN'T of ill repute?
I'm sorry, Iron, but your statement somehow has racism written all over it, unless I totally misunderstand what you are trying to say. Exactly what do you mean by "native intelligence"?
I believe that the article is speaking of "learned intelligence" rather than "native intelligence"
1. Existing in or belonging to one by nature; innate: native ability.
2. Being such by birth or origin: a native Scot.
3. Being one's own because of the place or circumstances of one's birth: our native land.
4. Originating, growing, or produced in a certain place or region; indigenous: a plant native to Asia.
How could he possibly be educated?
By his own admission he was in a drugged stupor through high school. He flunked out of Occidental. No one remembers him at Columbia. And then he graduates from Harvard Law with honors? Yeah right.
Where are the fellow students at Harvard gasping about his intellect, impressed about his participation in their study group or even seeing him in a class?
RE: And then he graduates from Harvard Law with honors? Yeah right.
Wasn’t he the editor of the Harvard Law Review?
And I am also curious as to how his students rated him as a Constitutional Law Lecturer at the University of Chicago...
Perhaps constantly smoking “choom” as a youth fried more than a few brain cells.
There are so many outrageous things Obama has said (slandering other people) and so many other stupid things (Navy corpseman, etc.), that I’m willing to cut him slack on the 57 states gaffe. He may have meant to say 47, since he went on to say he had one left to go—thinking in terms of the 48 states other than Alaska and Hawaii, neither of which he had any reason to campaign in.
Pot use during teen years has been demonstrated to inhibit physical brain development in a period just when the brain is undergoing most of its restructuring since birth.
That barry and his boys were saturated with the stuff explains a lot about the little islamist right there.
By “uneducated” they must mean smarter than the GOP, McCain, Romney, and over half of the population.
“Wasnt he the editor of the Harvard Law Review?”
No one remembers how he got that and he never wrote any articles as expected of the editor. He did nothing but carry the title.
He’s educated way beyond his intelligence...................
Obviously. We lost to an “uneducated” person.
Actually, I, too, have a problem with the number of states in the US. However, my problem only further makes Duke's point. You see, when I was in grade school, there were only 48 states. "48 states, 48 states, 48 states" was drummed into my head. Now when I need to quickly reel off the number of stars on the flag, or the number of US Senators, I have to stop and think.
Obama never had this particular problem. The number of states and senators was constant while he was in grade school. However, he probably never heard the number 50 referencing an important number in the government.
However, there are, indeed, 57 Muslim countries.
You seem to be reaching and struggling to find a reason to take offense; to make a connection to racism that doesn't exist in my statement.
The word "native" isn't always a reference to black skin, red skin, or African tribes. It does have other meanings and was in use long before the age of oversensitivity to skin color fell upon us.
Think of "native" as "innate" and this use of the word "native"will become clear to you.
In this case, here is what is meant by my reference to "native intelligence":
sound practical judgment that is independent of specialized knowledge, training, or the like; normal native intelligence.
The title was “president” of the harvard review. Apparently, the title was changed for him and did not require any writing or editing. Makes you wonder who’s behind this secret person, no?
What ? Bill O’Reilly say’s Obama is an expert on socks and can talk about them for hours
RE: For a guy who’s not that smart, he sure as hell is doing a masterful job at rope a doping the country.
Has it not occurred to you that this nation’s voters have slowly become “not smart” as well?
The entire family is one big f’d up mess. He was groomed since birth to be a communist puppet for others. There isn’t a single brain cell rattling around Barty’s head. I still maintain he is a very stupid man. But he is a stupid man surrpunded by evil sick people that are in charge. Even his beard is a political calculation.
You got the gist of it.
Dear Leader’s formula for how to become president, and it doesn’t require a scintilla of intelligence:
1) Affirmative Action
2) Smearing opponents with their confidential divorce records.
3) Getting discovered by Reid as a clean and articulate Black man.
4) White guilt, Black pride, naive and uninformed voters
5) Teleprompters and Greek columns.
6) Slavish media propagandists crowning him with halos.
7) Getting Bill Ayers to write your autobiography.
Another great Selwyn Duke article.
Sorry I am just now answering you back, I was out all day and just got back in.
I am very happy to know now that I did indeed misunderstand how you were using "native". I was really truly hoping that was the case. But I did want to challenge what you said in case others reading Free Republic might wrongly think us racist. However, you rose gallantly to the challenge and very nicely proved your worth (OUR worth, FREE REPUBLIC's worth)and I applaud you.
I was afraid you may have meant (or readers might think you meant) "native" as in by birth or origin, because the very definition of racist means believing that one race is inferior or superior to another race or races. And we here at Free Republic (and you too) know that we do not dislike and distrust Obama because of his race, but because of his communist philosophy, his arrogance, his hatred of America, just to name a few.... and I should add (as you so eloquently pointed out, his lack of common sense.
