RealClearPolitics ^ | July 18, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

"I'm also a pretty good doodler, folks don't know that about me," President Obama said in an interview with WJLA-TV last Friday when asked what people don't know about him.

"I do all kinds of things. Faces, people," Obama shared.

Obama also revealed that he sometimes draws doodles when he is in a "big important international meeting."

"Sometimes when I’m in a big important international meeting and you see me writing stuff down it might be that I’m just drawing some folks," Obama said.

Is this for real? This isn’t satire?

If it isn’t satire it shows that this person is so entrenched with his own importance and opinions that he is bored with those of others.

His thoughts are the only thoughts worth bothering with.

What an arrogant admission.

Smart Power politics came from Doodler-in-chief.

Evidence please. How do we know if he’s any good at it?

Otherwise, this guy missed his true calling .......

My anger towards the “fools” that voted for this man is building. I am formulating an email to them stating that I am willing to cut off all contact if they vote for this man again. It has become that serious to me.

What educated adult talks like that? Makes Biden sound almost intelligent. What a meat puppet. The puppet masters must be LTAO.

“Sometimes when I’m in a big important international meeting and you see me writing stuff down it might be that I’m just drawing some folks,” Obama said.”

This so blew my mind that I thought it had to be satire.

The language he used.The very idea that he would even admit this. I am sure it has happened in the past with Presidents but you don’t admit it to the World.

For what it’s worth, Adolph Hitler was a great doodler, too.

Anyway, I am certain that “O” is nearly a functional illiterate.

Everything that comes out of his mouth is what he regurgitates rote... he has been programmed. It’s probably why he can’t function without his teleprompter and fails so miserably whenever he has to wing it!

I am also certain that he is NOT well read. Like most die hard radicals I know, if he reads at all, he only reads material strictly consistent with the most extreme Liberal views and material meant to develop and perpetuate the Communist mentality. None of that stuff is intellectually sound much less well written.

How do I know that? Well, since I am a Conservative... by definition I AM well read!! (Like most Conservatives you will ever meet)

I have not only read Conservative political philosophy BUT like all the other Conservatives I know, I have ALSO read Socialist and Communist tomes as well!!

Liberals and other radicals need to expand their understanding of political philosophy and other disciplines, because it is apparent from their repetitious dialogue and speech that they are unbelievably limited in their understanding and possess only the most cursory grasp of issues.

The DNC has become a political relic and they all sound alike. That is not as intellectualy imaginative or politically resourceful as current American politics demands.

The more time he spends doodling, the less time he spends plotting his next diabolical move.

While he's "doodling", his commie puppet masters are plotting the diabolical moves.

Lol! I wouldn't be surprised. Recall there was a book with a collection of various quotes of his.

This is the little blue book that right-wing partisans love to hate. Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, POCKET OBAMA is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama's speeches and writings, intended to keep the momentum going for those inspired by his message of hope and change. The portable book serves as a reminder of the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words, a primer for readers who want to examine the substance of his thought and reflect on the next great chapter in the American story.

Obama’s Little Blue Book and the Egg of Power
By Michelle Malkin, January 26, 2009

Tons of people have e-mailed about the Little Blue Book of Obama sayings that a firm called the History Company is hawking on its website. Yes, they really are selling them in 10-packs for $49.50 — and yes, the resemblance to Mao’s Little Red Book is striking. Weirdly, “Pocket Obama” has a plain blank cover and smacks of a gag — especially the last line [it was not a gag -etl]:

"Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, this book is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama’s speeches and writings. POCKET OBAMA serves as a reminder of the amazing power of oratory and the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words. His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this historic collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency. It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times-The History Company [the book is no longer listed on the History Company's web site -etl].

Acting under Mao's leadership, these "Red Guards" used his quotations in their mission to weed out intellectuals. With themes such as Correcting Mistaken Ideas and All Reactionaries are Paper Tigers, the quotations became the standard by which all revolutionary efforts were judged."

Coverage of Obama’s doodles from 2008 ... in the media’s usual fashion of the time - comparing his to Palin’s doodles. You can guess which one they like and which one they hated.

Just add this to the list of Obama’s extraordinary capabilities (at least the things he thinks he is good at). He can sing, he can dance, he can golf, he can play basketball, he can tell jokes, he can ridicule, he can tell stories, he can read a teleprompter, he can make excuses, he can blame others, he can (and always does)lie, and now we learn that he can doodle. What will he reveal next? Yep, he sure has all the qualifications for a leader /sarc.

Proof positive that he’s the ‘Smartest Man in the Room’ only when he’s alone in the room. Anybody, yes even Joe Biden walks in and Zero falls to last in the list.

Liberals read quotes like this from Obozo and he is further endeared to them as being ‘everyman’. The leader of the Free World, doodling in ‘big, inportant meetings’ and yet they fall over each other to support him.

What a world!
