This, arguably, is the date on which Barry lost the upcoming election. I am not a lawyer, and most certainly not a constitutional law professor, but Barry is both. How is it that I, ignoramus that I am, know more US constitutional law than he does? Damn it, I’m not even a US citizen, let alone President of the United States.
I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.
And I — I’d just remind conservative commentators that for years what we’ve heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint; that, uhhh, an uninelected, uhhh, group of — of people would somehow overturn, uhhh, a duly constituted and — and passed, uh, law. Uh, well, uh, uh, is a good example. Uhh, and I’m pretty confident that this, — this court will recognize that, uh, and not take that step.
Does he truly know so little of US Constitutional history and the role of the Supreme Court? Does he really not understand the other branches of the government of which he is part?
Remember the Cairo speech? Where he referred to himself as a student of history and then went on to demonstrate his ignorance of Islam and the United States over the previous 232 years? There was no point talking about this back then, Barack Obama was the most intelligent President in modern history, and no demonstration of ignorance or foolishness was going to change that….
Seriously, it has been building, and yesterday the dam wall broke.
So, consider, was George Dubbya Bush an intellectual? Not on your nelly sport. Did he present himself as an intellectual?
Of course not. He didn’t even try.
Was Dubbya an intelligent and informed man? Too right he was. His style of speech was folksy, and he wasn’t an orator, but he was no fool either.
Now take Barry. Is he an intellectual?
No he is not.
Does he present himself as one? Why yes. Yes he does.
Barack Obama is a fool. He is an accomplished orator, provided he has a chance to practice and has a teleprompter handy, but that is the limit of his ability. What he is, is ignorant. I don’t know if he is an intelligent man, but any law school pre entrant should know more constitutional law than does this man.
The days are over when a commentator could seriously refer to Barry’s intelligence, and get away with it. As from yesterday he would be a laughing stock.
From here on he is a joke. Seriously. If one of his sycophants out there wibbles on about his intelligence and intellectual attainments, laugh in their face. Those days are over.
Go read the Powerline commentary. See how Barry went on to turn error into high farce.
