The Obama Failure

Why? Here’s why:

…To be blunt, Obama suffers from a lifetime of others excessively praising his intellect. It insulates him from ideas and facts that conflict with his pre-existing liberal rubric (so “every economist” believed his stimulus would work). It leaves him unprepared to engage in real debate with informed opponents (e.g. the health-care summit). It skews his understanding of how geopolitics works, as he imagines that his own wonderfulness can sway adversaries and override nations’ fundamental interests (the Middle East). Is he as well read as George W. Bush? As intellectually creative as Bill Clinton? As grounded in history as Harry Truman? Let’s get some perspective here…

I have to agree that Obama was much oversold as a smart guy – I mean, he may have a great deal of intellectual ability, but he doesn’t have any real world knowledge, no sense of humility and a complete inability to see the other side. As far as a leader goes, he’s as dumb as a box of rocks because of this.

This is why we see him making incredibly stupid statements like getting in to the Ground Zero mosque issue when he could have just stayed out of it (as a smart politician – Hillary Clinton – is). All of his mistakes are traceable to this lack of political intelligence – he might have an IQ of 140, but his political IQ is about 80.

Let’s hope he smarts up a bit before he entirely wrecks the nation…
