Obama: The Most Dangerous of Morons
There have been bad presidents -- see Jimmy Carter. Yet has there ever been a president as staggeringly incompetent as Barack Obama? Really, can there be any other explanation for his performance as president than the man is, well...a moron?
Let's face it, we all know them. They are the people who either started out with money, or have spent a lifetime failing up. Despite a distinct lack of accomplishment, personal or professionally, they believe they are the smartest person in every room. They cannot utter a sentence that does not include "I," "me," and "my," and they never stop speaking. To quote Alice Roosevelt, they are "the corpse at every funeral, the bride at every wedding and the baby at every christening."
They seem to Forrest Gump their way through life, with one undeserved success after another.
Does this remind you of anyone?
Have you ever noticed how many of these "really smart" people there are in government? It's a magnet for morons, and it seems every damn one of them is portrayed by the media as a genius in his own right. Yet, they never seem to be able to do anything but make things worse, and usually much worse.
These are America's morons and Barry is their leader.
Obama has strange tastes. His favorite show is Homeland. He's proud to tell people this, and don't get me wrong, I like the show myself -- as a work of fiction. Then again, I'm not the President of the United States of America. In that case, the bar should be set higher.
A president who brags about liking a show where one of the lead characters assassinated the Vice President of the United States is not one to be taken seriously as president, or as anything.
One more time for emphasis, the President of the United States willingly tells people his favorite show is one in which the Vice President was assassinated.
What is this guy, a moron?
The answer is yes, he is a moron, and worse, he is the most dangerous of morons, one who doesn't think he is a moron.
Don't get me wrong, this is not an anti-moron screed. In my life, I have had more than 2,000 people work for me. Morons have their place. A good manager reads an employee and his skill set and uses that person to the maximum of his abilities. A moron can contribute. A moron can be an effective employee -- I've had many of them.
Yet when he is delusional and lacks self-awareness, he often has the 'I can do anything' syndrome and ends up thinking he can be President of the United States, while believing he's got game like Lebron and is smarter than all his advisors.
A dangerous moron, at times, can self-limit the damage done, by lightening the workload. Having surprisingly risen past his level of competence, he naturally thinks he is actually so great, he doesn't have to work hard. So...he doesn't. Instead he plays golf, and throws parties, and gives speeches, and looks longingly at his reflection in the mirror.
Narcissus was convinced no one was prettier than Narcissus. And Barry is convinced no one smarter than Barry.
A moron can be productive -- providing he knows his limitations and can use what God has given him within those limitations. A dangerous moron, however, is all arrogance and bluster, always convinced that every one of his incompetent actions and the inevitable results, are actually brilliant successes and if not, somebody else's fault. Dangerous morons hate to admit they were wrong. They are also incapable of feeling shame or guilt.
Dirty Harry Callahan said: "A man's got to know his limitations." And Clint Eastwood talked to an empty chair. Well...Barack Obama is the iconic "empty suit," which, by definition is the most dangerous of morons.
Look at the man.
Has there ever been a president more willing to display his arrogance. Arrogance is symptomatic of the dangerous moron. Having failed up, way beyond his wildest expectations, he truly believes he is what people have always told he him was.
The dangerous moron, having succeeded instead of failing starts to believe that, not only is he not a moron, he is a genius. I don't know why. Only a moron could think that.
Consider for a moment ObamaCare.
The big lie of the Obama presidency is "you can keep your insurance." Barry thinks Americans are just too stupid to realize he lied. Why wouldn't he? He's been right before.
He actually believed that Americans would be so enamored of his signature achievement that they would forget about his promise. Only a moron would think most Americans would willingly pay more for less to ensure a minority of people could pay less for more -- and then afterward, forgive him for lying to them in order to pass the legislation. After all, it had his name on it. He felt that should be enough.
Only a moron could have 3 ½ years and a half a billion dollars to build a website and still blow it. Of course, it wasn't his fault, he knew nothing about the website prior to its launch and was unaware that it would fail.
Jon Stewart, who, believe it or not, can be on the money sometimes, said that Obama was "out of the loop," and then added, "There appear to be very few loops he's in." Isn't that the perfect description of the nation's first moron president?
Barry's response: "No one is madder than me."
If I hear "No one is madder than me," one more time I think I am going to throw up all over my copy of the Audacity of Hope. I wouldn't of course, because that might affect my ObamaCare eligibility, or the NSA might tell the IRS and I'd be audited.
Morons are a naturally angry lot. Wouldn't you be if you didn't know what the hell was going on? And who knows less of what is going on than Barack Obama?
Fast and Furious and all those dead Mexicans (They're only Mexicans...aren't they?) and a dead American border patrol agent (Brian Terry was unavailable for comment) -- Barry never heard of it...but he was outraged.
The IRS targeting his political opponents by denying and delaying their applications for non-profit status, and thus hindering their ability to raise money and have an impact on his 2012 re-election -- Barry heard about it the same time everyone else did...again, he was outraged.
The NSA, spying on basically...everyone, keeping a record of every email, phone call, text and conversation of every American and half the rest of the world, including the president of Brazil and the Chancellor of Germany -- Barry angrily didn't know about that one either...but he's put his best team on it.
Don't worry, his best team built healthcare.gov. You know that's going nowhere.
Remember Benghazi, where America's ambassador, whose ardent pleas for additional security were rejected, was sodomized and assassinated along with three of his staff during a firefight lasting 7 hours?
These brave Americans, desperately fought alone, despite numerous military assets close enough to have made a difference, but were denied the opportunity to make that difference.
What did Barry do? He went to bed early in order to be fresh for a campaign event in Las Vegas the next day. In another lie (morons lie a lot), he blamed it all on an internet videographer's amateur You-Tube video. He then had the amateur locked up.
Well, Benghazi...that wasn't Barry either, and he was so outraged he pledged not to rest until the perpetrators were caught. So far the only one doing time for Benghazi is the amateur -- the filmmaker, not Barry.
He must have used his best team again.
Well...at least none of this has interfered with his golf game.
Remember those commercials where and actor would say, "I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV?" Well...that's what we have here -- a moron who is not a president, but he plays one on TV.
With Nixon, they asked what did he know and when did he know it.
To ask the same question of Barry would be ridiculous. He didn't know anything ever -- and he's the first to admit it.
In fact, he brags about it.
...and no one is madder than he is.
Enough of this...it's getting late, time for Barry to go into a meeting where everyone will tell him how brilliant he is. And then, perhaps some milk and cookies and the newest episode of Homeland.
"Oh look, a squirrel!"
