Skip to comments.Obama Advisor: "He is bored to death and too talented for ordinary people"
Posted on 11/15/2010 6:35:44 PM PST by GlockThe Vote
In his biography of Obama, "The Bridge," David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, quotes White House senior adviser and longtime Obama friend Valerie Jarrett: "I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. ... He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability -- the extraordinary, uncanny ability -- to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. ... So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. ... He's been bored to death his whole life. He's just too talented to do what ordinary people do."
Talk about a "yes man" -- or a devotee woman. The boss is so "extraordinary," so above the "ordinary" man, that he's been long-term bored to death -- untaxed, unhappy, uncanny and unchallenged.
And now unappreciated -- simultaneously called "pathetic" and "tone-deaf," respectively, by the left in The Progressive and the right in The Washington Times.
Turns out that Jarrett's wrong -- there's nothing "extraordinary" about Obama's talent in reading people or understanding economics.

“He is bored to death and too talented for ordinary people”
Yeah, but can he throw a pitch all the way to the plate, instead of on one or two bounces?
I’m so glad that the world leaders put his punk in his place. What a loser! And it only cost us $2 billion dollars for his 57th vacation.
If Barky is too ‘talented’ to do his job competently, what demented, perverted motive caused him so work so hard to inflict himself on the country? Sorry, Jarrett - 0bama is either incompetent or evil; you can’t excuse his wrongdoing.
A Martian vacation is exactly what Obama needs.. he would really be the One then.
He is probably correct on this, but it is not because he is so brilliant. It is because he surrounds himself with groupies instead of professionals. If he did he would not be able to keep up with them.
So why is he dumbstruck when he has no teleprompter?
Sick. Absolutely sick.
Intelligence, honesty, and humility are burdens 0bama will never have to bear.
“Dumb” Republicans always seem to make much better Presidents than “smart” Dims. “Dumb” Republicans rely on the intellect of hundreds of advisors selected for their competence and honesty. “Smart” Dim Presidents think they know everything and surround themselves with dolts and yes-men.
â Delusions. In paranoid schizophrenia, delusions are often focused on the perception that you’re being singled out for harm.(By Fox news or Glenn Beck) Your brain misinterprets experiences and you hold on to these false beliefs despite evidence to the contrary. ...You may also have delusions of grandeur ...
You CANNOT be a Christian and be BORED in this great world!!
Valerie Jarrett is a bigger sycophant than Josef Goebbels was. Which is an absolutely extraordinary thing to say.
I’m glad to see Obama is smart enough to realize that you just have to spend your way out of a recession. He is also smart enough to show us all the merits of socialism.
LOL! The Left views a cocaine-addled slacker as their intellectual superior.
...maybe they are right.
Very Interesting. I see all Washington politicians as beholden to big money and way too smart for us average Americans, who are just trying to survive in an economy that pits elitists and cronies that get handed it all, against average schmucks such as myself and zillions of other sheeple.
“...Send him to Mars ... “
LOL, Yeppers - I’d like to see him live off the land!
How many hours was Obama delayed at that gate?
The frightening thing is he believes his own legend and so does many around him. This is hitleresk.
My God, she looks almost...well, simian.
He is a telepromter puppet take it away and you got keystone obama
Which brings on a new “song of the moment”
Right Said Fred: I’m Too Sexy
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Here we have, arguably, the worst President in the history of the United States and one of his senior White Hut advisors feels he has “never really been challenged intellectually”? She must have seen the transcripts, etc. that we the ruled class aren’t privy to. I REALLY hate being so crass on FR but those are some serious knee pads she’s wearing. I wonder if she really believes it or just expects us to.
When these people say “intelligent” they mean to say, he agrees with me.
I remember the endless articles referring to Al Gore’s enormous, out-sized intellect. When, seriously, he was one of the dumbest men anywhere outside of journalism.
The fact that no one in journalism noticed just how landslide-inducingly dumb Gore was, told us more about the caliber of people in the journalism business than it ever did about Big Al.
“My God, she looks almost...well, simian.”
Ha, is that you Cornelius?
I am no expert in the Gospel but, I think the "Feed my sheep" mission statement means Christians have plenty of work to do.
Just had to ping you. I think you’ve been “one upped”, and not by satire... :)>
Freepers are SO resourceful!
Well, that article didn’t help my upset stomach any (grin).
BTW, I’ll say it (again). I’ve yet to see anything to convince me Obama is the philospher-king he’s made out to be, either in “book smarts” or in his grasp of the intuitive/insight-wisdom. I don’t think the guy’s dumb, just a lot of hat and very little cattle.
That might be the problem at the White House.
He would have soooooo much time for ‘reflection’. LOL!
Careful Val... I'm betting Michelle feels threatened by women who fall for her husband's "God-given talents".
Obama has been smoking Bo’s crap. And Valerie Jarret has her head stuck so for up Obama’s backside that she is navel gazing. what do expect from 2 foreign born imbeciles - dumb and dumberer. DC stands Dumbass City. This gets more and more nuttier by the minute. My clients are more sane than these nuts in DC, and many of the clients I have a considered psychos. DC is a psychiatrist and psychologists dream world. I wonder how many of the Obama administration are actually NUTS.
I have that pic on my profile. LOL! I LOVE it!
The next thing you know we’ll all be taking LSD like this fool who provided those quotes about EPIC FAIL nobama. nobama is such a waste.
I laughed so hard reading this article. The delusions this man is under makes Don Quiotex look sane.
Wow! A Lewinski-Sinclair.
Obama is one of those people.
He has no discernible competencies and gets bored.
“Idiocracy” was evidently a documentary - who knew?
OK Valerie, I’ll buy he’s too smart for the job if it get him out the door and into another line of work any quicker.
“If the Fuehrer wills it, two and two make five!”
No kidding... If I was Moochelle, I'd have ALL Valerie's dresses checked for DNA!
Chance the gardener.
