Ron Fournier:

Obama’s plan to exert executive branch authority, starting with his State of the Union address, further illustrates his unfamiliarity with the levers of political power, the limits of his leadership style, and the vast amount of time and potential squandered by the president so far.

Didn’t know enough? After five years in office? This official, like so many others in the West Wing, apparently is not sufficiently self-aware to realize he confirmed an Obama critique—that the president is too removed and disinterested from the political process to affect it, that he doesn’t value congressional relations enough to give them anything more than lip service, and that, for his enormous intellectual gifts, Obama is handicapped by a lack of political curiosity. He chose not to know enough about the Republicans.

Who knew that a failed educational reformer with a penchant for political shakedowns and a Chicago Way of doing business might not have the executive experience or political curiosity to handle the responsibilities of President of the United States?

That, by the way, is one of those fancy rhetorical questions.

Seriously.

That's probably why they hide his transcripts. They probably show a screaming mediocrity that got a big fat ride from affirmative action.

He's utterly clueless to how our political system works. One would think even the imbecile Biden would have learnt a few things and been able to mentor him. But I think along with being clueless is his vain streak. Worst combination. An idiot that's also a know-it-all.

Yeah, I'm waiting for those enormous intellectual gifts to manifest. No college transcripts to brag about? No scholarly papers from his academic expence? He doesn't sound smart even reading other peoples thoughts of a teleprompter. Complete affirmative action fraud and most people know it.

Obama's enormous intellectual gifts, what is the return policy on them?

Can we return them for Biden Bucks or Clinton Cash?

Other than campaigning and Teleprompter reading....and skipping out on briefings...what, precisely...has Obama done that shows off his immense grasp of economic, geopolitical or governmental subtleties?

Benghazi? Jobs? Solyndra? Debt? Obamacare? Iran?

Frankly, looking at the landscape...one sees ruins everywhere. What is the success?

The only "successes" are all the totalitarian abuses forced down the throats of the American people. Spying, lying, siccing government agencies on dissenters. If that's "success' then we should define the terms in a Manifesto, not in our now out of print free market, Constitutional democracy dictionary.

Can somebody show me some of these "enormous intellectual gifts" I keep hearing about? Claiming to have read every book on NPR's "Fresh Air" reading list doesn't count.

Agreed. Obama looks like our first millennial president.
