Obama is not stupid. He is a highly polished Alinskyite who is doing everything he has been groomed to do since first being financed and given first class University credentials by Rashid Khalid al-Mansour, and nurtured along by George Soros and the leftist Alinsky crowd.
The man has a glossy appeal (especially having that black blood in his genes) to those who share the same radical ends, and his ability to speak in sound bytes and images is like an intravenous feed into the brains of low information voters. The man has generated a dark cloud of Marxism/leninisn dressed up in modern celebrity hype. And his re-election proves his success.
He is not stupid; he is extremely dangerous.
