Democrats and independents enamored of Barack Obama have learned nothing from letting a likable dope take the reins of power in the White House. And just because Barack had a privileged upbringing in Hawaii, attended upscale private schools, and eventually made his way to Harvard, it was not because he is “brilliant.” If going to Harvard and Yale is proof of brilliance then George W. Bush is a frigging genius. Anyone want to go there?
Would a brilliant guy, who is running for President, claim to barely know a guy indicted for corruption, who just happened to be a longstanding member of Obama’s campaign finance committee (and not realize there are pictures of him glad handing the mope)?
Would a brilliant guy, who was planning to run for President, tell a slum lord (who he claims he barely knew) about buying adjacent properties, which they subsequently do on the same day?
Would a brilliant guy, who was planning to run for President, be able to remember which button to press when voting on critical issues in the Illinois state senate? (Good grief!! Imagine if he had his finger on THE BUTTON?)
Would a brilliant guy, who is planning to run for President, decline to take advantage of his status and chairman of the the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee on Western Europe and Nato by not traveling to Europe or holding a single hearing on those issues?
Would a brilliant guy, who is running for President, fail to be ready to answer the question about drivers licenses for illegal aliens after having watched his chief rival, Hillary, stumble over the same question two weeks earlier?
Would a brilliant guy, running for President, pander to Republicans by calling them the party of ideas while the last Democrat to win two terms as President occupied the White House?
And would a brilliant guy feign hearing problems when confronted with evidence that he called for a single payer health system before he denied he ever had? At least Ronald Reagan used helicopter noise to pretend he couldn’t hear a question (and that man actually was partially deaf).
Obama is a handsome, charming guy who can deliver a snappy prepared speech. But if he is so “brilliant,” why did he leave so many loose ends hanging? So Obamatons (or is it Oborgs?), please recount for us the evidence of Obama’s brilliance. Being born a good looking, well spoken man has nothing to do with brilliance. Please show me that the man touting hope is not a dope.
