First, as president Obama said a lot of dumb things: –there are 57 states; –Canada has a president; –“Austrian” is a language; –America is “20 centuries” old; –Arabic is spoken in Afghanistan. –He called the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) the Maldives; –he declared it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress.
–Obama’s stimulus bill didn’t stimulate. –His subsidies to “green” firms produced neither the jobs nor the energy he promised. –Unemployment on his watch peaked at 10 percent, one of the highest rates since the Great Depression. –Deficits are out of control.
Second, “The man who promised everything is delivering nothing,” wrote Noemie Emery in the Weekly Standard. “Journalists who wept when he won the election now grind their teeth in despair. … The gap between sizzle and steak never seemed so large.”
Could it be Mr. Obama’s “superior intellect” is a myth created by journalists to mask what may be the thinnest resume of anyone ever elected president? An example of puffery is the description of Mr. Obama as a former “professor of constitutional law.” Mr. Obama was a part time instructor at the University of Chicago law school, without the title or status of professor. And, according to blogger Doug Ross, he wasn’t very popular with the real professors.
“I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back,” Mr. Ross wrote in March 2010. “According to my professor friend, [Obama] had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. … The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified,” The foregoing was from Real Clear Politics.
What about his intellect? Intellect can be measured with an IQ test. Obama seems to come in around 120. George Bush was smarter, Bill Clinton smarter yet and Hillary has an even higher score than Bill although her personality is the most unlikable and the most grating. Is that an overbite? Does this woman respect anyone? Why is the most picked word to describe her “Crooked”?
