Ignorance Is Bliss

October 29th, 2013 - 5:02 am

Valerie Jarrett, back in the day:

“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.

How many thousands of perspectives can Professor Ditherton Wiggleroom digest while still remaining ignorant of Benghazi, the NSA, ObamaCare’s upending of existing insurance plans, the paucity of “shovel-ready jobs,” politicizing the IRS, Fast & Furious, and everything else he claims to have no knowledge of?

What an interesting fellow she is describing. Sadly, we didn't get him in the White House, we got some utterly incompetent clown instead.

Can you imagine how much hatred that mutant alien twisted little rodent has attracted in the White House? The tell-all books are going to be awesome.

What comes out after his digesting?
So Valerie has warned us: he's full of crap.

Bullsh!t, Valleri. Obozo has one perspective - his. It's just that it's supplemented by the fawning, adoring, militant fanatics that support him or work in his administration that think he speaks for them, when in reality he speaks for no one. When he does speak, he's so often wrong that he has to 'act' like he's speaking, by very persuasively saying nothing, and inviting the listener to presume whatever noble intent they like.

It allows him to do nothing, take undeserved credit for undeserved success, and avoid blame when the inevitable train wreck occurs. It's a studied act of cover your a$, to build plausible deniability. The damage that Saint Obozo does is actually very little, it's those tingly legged lemmings who throw their bodies over a cliff that are doing the worst damage, thinking some progressive rapture is going to let them fly before they impact.

He's the main character in "Life of Brian", only this idiot actually thinks he's divinely inspired and deserving of the fawning, boot licking adoration he receives, instead of trying to direct those desperate for leadership to think and act for themselves.

She says this:

"...he has never really been challenged intellectually."

...like it's a good thing -- that it means he's so brilliant that life offers him nothing daunting.

What it really means is that whatever intellect he ever had has atrophied for lack of exercise.

You see it everywhere, Affirmative Action hires underperforming. When talent and accomplishment are ignored in favor of skin color, ethnicity, gender, gender preference, etc., the average, lazy, untalented are promoted and retained against all rational criteria for excising them.

Of course this was an absurd comment. Many of us knew it at the time. It's quite obvious that while he's no dope, the man is of very average intellect.

What Obama is, is simply this: he's Johnny Bravo for a new Millenium. He fit the suit that Val and Dave had in the closet.

Gee, that Obama sure is a super guy:

Now, I'm a jet fuel genius I can solve the world's problems
Without even trying
I have dozens of friends and the fun never ends
That is, as long as I'm buying
Is it any wonder I AM the president?
Is it any wonder I'm null and void?

Nope. Just a POTUS with too much time on his hands.
