Maybe They're Just That Dumb

Obama's much touted high intellect has never been in evidence in the last four years. I don't think the guy is very smart, but I DO KNOW that he has been in a job that is wildly above his abilities. AND that has nothing to do with his being half white and half black. It's a question of competence not race.

One report was Obamas GPA at Occidental was 1.9; Columbia 2.0; Harvard 2.1, graduating 5th from the bottom of a class of 400. No references were given, the Democrats refuse to release his transcripts. Given no contradictory evidence, these numbers are consistent with Obama'a autobiography where HS was spent drunk, on drugs, and skipping class; college required almost no effort. He has no accomplishments credited to him. Congress passed Obamacare, the USNavy Seals killed Bin Laden. He made not effort to negotiate any bi-partisan action in the Congress/Senate.

Any chance you have similar info with regard to George W. Bush?

That information is available as President G.W. Bush made his academic records public. Made a few good jokes about them also. Why not our current President? What is he hiding?

Bush's GPA was higher than Kerry's. Gore was kicked out of Harvard for cheating, or plagarism; I forget which.

He is not hiding his birth certificate. Perhaps he does not like to brag or make jokes about it.

Being president was always easy for Barack Obama.

But delivering on the big words has been considerably tougher.

Obama’s big troubles stem from the rigidity of the left’s broken ideas. They admit of no compromise. Consequently, Obama has subsumed his whole personality into an unworkable progressive ideology that was dead outside of academia- and news rooms- until he resurrected it.

It’s the idea that a benign government of technocrats and academics can engineer near perfect justice at the trivial cost in liberty and money to us.

Yes; maybe they just are that dumb to think it could work.
