The Profound Arrogant Ignorance and Stupidity of Liberals in Charge
American Thinker ^ | 3/24/2014 | C. Edmund Wright

The recent Twitter kerfuffle between Matt Drudge and the Obama/media/academic complex over the ObamaCare tax demonstrates in plain view and without question something many of us have known for years: while the organized left insist that they are the only ones smart enough to run the world, they remain astonishingly ignorant of how it works.  They’re even ignorant of how the most fundamental parts of laws that they champion operate.

In case you missed it, Drudge tweeted, “Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not 'getting covered'... I'M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX” shortly after filing his first quarterly installment for 2014 as a self-employed person. Apparently unaware of how self-employed people pay taxes – which is neither new nor a secret – liberals at the White House, Talking Points Memo, the Huffington Post, and the National Journal all responded immediately by calling Drudge either a liar or ignorant, or both.  After all, the liberal reasoning went, Drudge could not possibly have paid a cent toward his 2014 ObamaCare "penalty" because it's not 2015 yet.

Yes, these wizards who would organize everything and everyone lack even a cursory familiarity with the most basic of tax realities.

What is it Bill Engvall says?  Oh yeah: “Here’s your sign.”  These liberals really didn’t need Engvall’s sign at all.  They tweeted their own "I’m stupid" signs.  Some wrote full-fledged low-information articles, including TPM’s Dylan Scott and the HuffPo’s Jeffrey Young.

When you draw up the list of the top thirty people around the President in 2009, including the VP and the various ‘czars’...there’s only two individuals with military backgrounds, and only one with foreign affairs knowledge (no, it’s not Hillary). But there’s this odd absence....not a single person who was ever a small business man/woman.

So much background on education, foundation agendas, politics, and economics...but nothing much to bag about on military situations, foreign affairs, or the general business community.

The President wanted it that way, and it says alot about who gets hurt in this eight year period.
