Cribbed Gem

Jack Kelly of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette examines the media-created myth about Obama's breathtaking intelligence . . . .

    Mr. Obama has said a lot of unsmart things: there are 57 states; Canada has a president; 'Austrian' is a language; America is '20 centuries' old; Arabic is spoken in Afghanistan. He's called the Falkland Islands (Malvinas) the Maldives, and declared it would be 'unprecedented' for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress.

     President Obama's stimulus bill didn't stimulate. His subsidies to 'green' firms have produced neither the jobs nor the energy he promised. Deficits are out of control.

     Noemie Emery in the Weekly Standard ... 'Journalists who wept when he won the election now grind their teeth in despair . . . .  The gap between sizzle and steak never seemed so large.'

     Could it be that Mr. Obama's 'superior intellect' is a myth created by journalists to mask what may be the thinnest resume of anyone ever elected president?

     An example of puffery is the description of Mr. Obama as a former 'professor of constitutional law.' Mr. Obama was a part-time instructor at the University of Chicago law school, without the title or status of professor. And, according to blogger Doug Ross, he wasn't very popular with the real professors. 'I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back,' Mr. Ross wrote in March 2010. 'According to my professor friend, [Obama] had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building . . .  . The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified'.

The man's a plain fool. So how dumb did his voters have to be in order to not notice?

Time to chant the mantra once again: "We live . . . in a land . . . run by morons."
