    1. "How many recall the eight years of George W. Bush’s two terms in office, during which he was derided constantly as being too dumb to be president? He was deemed “a frat boy,” and yet Mr. Bush had graduated from Yale University and had gone on to secure a master’s degree fromHarvard Business School. When his grades were compared to those of Massachusetts DemocraticSen. John Kerry during Mr. Bush’s campaign for re-election, it turned out the president had higher scores.

    2. We can’t compare Barack Obama’s grades to Mr. Bush’s or anyone else’s because they and other indicators of his scholastic achievements have been hidden from public review….This is about a question millions of Americans are beginning to ask: Is President Obama just a moron?

    3. …we have had presidents in the past who had impressive scholastic records but still turned out to be dumber than your average pea-picker…Woodrow Wilson took office after a distinguished career in academia and had been the governor of New Jersey. It was Wilson who embraced the income tax and turned out to be astonishingly naive about international affairs despite having helped the allies win World War I. Jimmy Carter, on paper, was no dummy. A graduate of the Naval Academy, he had been governor of Georgia, but as president, he was a dismal failure.

    4. …I wrote a commentary, “Putting a child in charge,” suggesting that having a young president - Mr. Obama was 47 at the time - in charge of the greatest economic and military power in the world might not be a good idea. I noted that Mr. Obama’s resume was unusually thin in terms of any real achievement. His main claim was that he had been a community organizer in Chicago. Politically, he was known best as a state senator for having voted “present” much of the time, and he had barely spent any time in the U.S. Senate before beginning to run for president.

    5. It’s not as if he didn’t signal what he actually thought. “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.” Huh? When did we ever care what other nations thought about our driving or eating or the setting on our thermostats?

    6. Americans took notice of all the tax cheats and various loonies nominated to be in Mr. Obama’s Cabinet, many of whom had to withdraw from consideration, one who became secretary of the Treasury and dozens who went on to become “czars” without any vetting from Congress…. the guidance offered by Mr. Obama’s initial choices as economic advisers has driven up the deficit to historic highs and done nothing to reduce unemployment. So, as Mrs. Obama says, her husband will require you to work - just as soon as he figures out where real jobs come from.

    7. The president just admitted that he was unaware there were no “shovel-ready” projects for a huge infusion of government funding, and yet he used that phrase over and over again while stumping for his failed “stimulus” program. Even the mayor of a small city could have told him that, but Mr. Obama had never run so much as a lemonade stand before being elected president.

    8. Famously, Americans early on realized that Mr. Obama could not deliver a speech without having teleprompters and, when called upon to speak without them, became a mass of stuttering, sputtering, sentence-splitting incoherence.

    9. If that weren’t bad enough, Mr. Obama demonstrated an ability to insult whole nations while, at the same time, apologizing to the world for America’s exceptionalism and achievements.

    10. Since being elected, he has insulted Wall Street, insurance companies, physicians, the president of France, Las Vegas, the Postal Service, Nancy Reagan and, lately, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Mostly, though, he has insulted the intelligence of millions of Americans, many of whom will be going to the polls … to let him know they think he is a moron and among the worst, if not the worst, president ever to have held that office."

    Barry and the cronies that he brought to the highest office in the country is nothing short of a disgrace. From Van "Watermelon man" Jones to Eric Holder to Valerie Jarred, we have people who are so 'smart' that they give a new meaning to the terms 'political hack' and 'political appointee'. And the problem is, that they are systematically dismantling this nation with the clear intent to destroy it and remake it in the European Socialist model. A model that at this very moment, we can look to Europe and see that they are failing miserably in a sea of red ink.

    Billed as the 'most transparent' and 'most intelligent' administration in history, this incompetent President has jacked the national debt to 16 Trillion in one term (Higher than the GDP), undermined perennial allies, gutted national defense, turned a blind eye and has been given a pass on debacles which have cost American lives (refer to Fast and Furious), been in charge of a rogue government agency that squandered millions in tax dollars (GSA), and for the first time in the history of this country, demanded that American citizens purchase something that they do not want to, all in the name of the commerce clause.

    Why are we shocked? That is what gets me, why does this surprise us? This man has absolutely NO EXPERIENCE running anything and we put him in charge of the world's last super power? The only respite that we have had, and I literally thank God for them everyday, is the Republicans in Congress who can stop this mess.

    Everytime I hear a whiny liberal complain about the "do nothing" Congress, I can only say a prayer thanking God for at least one sane branch of government...

    He can articulate very well when teleprompters are present. However, without a teleprompter, he struggles to search for words that have relevance or even meaning to the topic at hand along with a constant stammering and stuttering....um, uh, uh, mm, repeat and so on. I don't think there's too much upstairs. It's sad.

    But....your avi includes 'Truth...."

    The OP states that Obama hid his grades....

    ...was vastly inexperienced....

    ...put a tax cheat in his cabinet....

    ...drove deficits to historic highs...

    ...was dead wrong about the existence of 'shovel ready jobs'...

    ...and that he required a teleprompter....


    Didn't you appreciate the truth of each and every one???

    Don't you 'seek truth'??? Your aren't 'Obfuscation420,' are your???


    Now then, who is the 'moronic racist bigoted neocon'?
    I know that you don't mean our President.....do you?



    BTW....Caruba wrote this, as well:

    "… I wrote that Obama had “an imaginary life” because there was no proof that anything he claimed in his two memoirs, written by the age of 45, was true. His resume listed “community organizer”, an amorphous term that could mean anything, as his primary occupation. By October 2010 the Washington Times published a commentary of mine that said “millions of Americans are beginning to ask: Is President Obama just a moron?”

    Even prior to his election, he had ensured that his entire paper trail of birth certificates, passports, college records, and other items most people can produce in under five minutes were “sealed” from public review, despite the fact that most modern presidents have had to submit their personal records, short of a colonoscopy exam, for examination. Among his first executive orders was one issued on January 21, 2009, to ensure none of these records saw the light of day."

    Got a feeling you didn't like this either.....am I right?

    His college thesis was: How to overthrow the USA

    Clearly, his innocence of the concept of "Judicial Review" calls his tenure as "President" of Law Review into question. Did Elaine Kagan cover for him? Is that why she's on SCOTUS?

    Just one tiny disagreement with Caruba....Obama isn't the moron, or ignoramus....

    ....it's the 'brilliant' ones who voted for this empty suit...and still claim to support him!

    "Why are we shocked? That is what gets me, why does this surprise us? This man has absolutely NO EXPERIENCE running anything..."

    I'm going to guess that you, as is true of myself, never voted for this President...and won't this time around.

    The question is, do you think that '08 Obama voters have learned their lesson?

    Can you imagine any other than the most loyal of Obama's supporters (read brain-dead camp-followers) who might pull that lever again?

    The excuse might be 'well, the Republican is (whatever)....


    And, of course, they already have the response ready for when he loses: "R_____!"

    Sure enough... Obama won by roughly 7% in 2008... all after 8 years of Bush bashing (some of it deservedly so), a weak GOP candidate, a bad economy, etc. Couple this with the youth vote and those thinking it "cool" to vote Obama... and there ya go. He's had 4 years, he's given us unprecedented deficits & debt, the markets still are below 2004 levels, housing markets are still off, 40,000,000+ unemployed or underemployed, record numbers on public assistance, Obamacare, inflation, soaring energy prices, billions funneled into failed green companies, etc.

    Ain't gonna happen this time.. no way.
