    Professor in Chief

    Barack Obama has been called a lot of things since he hit the national stage: Celebrity, elitist and even one who “pals around with terrorists.” But as his poll numbers come back down to earth, and an emboldened conservative movement sharpens its attacks, the label that seems to be sticking to Obama as much as any lately is that of “professor.”

    Speaking to Tea Party activists in Nashville last week, Sarah Palin did her part to keep the “professor” dig in circulation.

    They know we're at war, and to win that war we need a commander in chief, not a professor of law standing at the lectern,” the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee told a frenzied crowd.

    Obama’s years on the University of Chicago’s faculty have proven a double edged sword. While his supporters accept his higher education experience as evidence of a thoughtful pragmatism, the “professor” label has just as easily been used as a bristly brush, painting the president as an out of touch dreamer who formed theories in the Ivory Tower that can’t be translated into concrete policies from the White House.

    The Intellectual Professor in Chief.

    If you call the Obama a professor….you are considered a racist. Aren't the liberals crazy?

    How many intellectuals pronounce it corpsmen?

    How many intellectuals think that there are 57 states?….

    How many intellectuals think that a breathalyzer is same as an inhaler?

    So...to you my lord,… the Harvard graduate. Shall I fetch your slippers?

    Why is being an intellectual a negative with the conservative right?

    It's not a negative, unless you're in a leadership position. Experience is the key here and Obama doesn't have any.

    You don't need experience to be a progressive "leader" all you need are Utopian fantasies and a big enough ego to believe that you can alter both human nature and "the world" simply by the power of your ideology and a willingness to act without principles driven only by the certainty that "the ends justify the means".

    Conservatives are the ones that act based on experience, Progressives act based on slogans, collectivist ideology and "gut feelings".

    So why hasn't Obama released so much as a single legal opinion? All we know about Obama is that he thinks the framers of the Constitution got it totally wrong.

    Of course the Obama's of the word are all the same.. look ar Mao, Marx, Chavez, Castro, Lenin, Stalin, etc... these people were not peasants but well educated pinheads who rely on an army of ignoramus' following them. They all preach feel good bullshit to a bunch of disenfrachised losers who lap it up... meantime.... fearless leader lives in a palace, dines on all the best food while his clueless followers wallow in shit.
