The saddest part is that there are still millions out there saying Obama "needs more time to finish the job." Most black "celebs" use this very
statement all the time as they sing the praises because of his race and intelligence.
Just because you have a private paid education does NOT make you intelligent.
Can't wait to see his slogan....if we have just experienced his Hope & Change philosophy what exactly would his hope to change outlook be for 4 more
Obama is extremely intellegent and smart.
You may not like his actions or agenda, but that doesn't make him dumb.
The speech quoted in the OP was diabolical, no doubt, but not dumb. The MSNBC commentator couldn't digest the fact that he was making perfect sense.
Obama repudiated the previous administration, not for their actions, but for the way
they went about doing so. He wants to do exactly the same
as the previous administration, but within a legal and constitutional framework. He wants the Congress to pass a law that will give him those powers,
but will not be ruled as unconstituional by the courts. If it is not consitutionally possible to pass such a law, the Congress has to refuse or if
Congress passes such a law ignoring the constituion, the courts should strike it down. If the Congress passes a law giving the executive such powers
and it stands judicial scruitiny, it means for all practical purposes he is acting within the limits imposed by the consitution and upholding the rule
of law. If anyone believes his actions are wrong that leaves only two possibilities: one that the constitution is inadequate to safeguard the rights
of the people or that the entire system at the top including the legislators and judges, not just the President, cares a rat's behind about the
constitution and their oath of office. Obama is intelligent and smart and hence he is making everyone, the Congress and the Judiciary, party to the
actions. Unlike George W Bush no one can say they have been bullied into passing the legislation, because Obama is not syaing there will be terrorist
attacks if the law isn't passed; only that they will have to release some Guantanamo detainees who they don't want to.
As for his election promises, again he proved to be extremely smart. His main slogan was "Change we can believe in" and I am sure everyone will
is the change everyone can believe in
But, of course, being intelligent and smart doesn't mean the person cannot be evil and Obama, like his predecessor, is evil incarnate and like his
predecessor will return to office for another term.
