Okay, I’ve reached the end of my patience on the Sarah is stupid and BO is a genius meme. Seriously. Sarah may or may not be a genius, but she’s certainly got more going for her in many areas than BO (not what this post is about, but she actually understands America and loves this country, unlike BO who clearly does neither).
So I’ve decided to compile a handy go-to list of all of BO’s droolingly stupid comments and assertions. But there are so darned many that I need your help. Here’s what I have so far (actually just comments that I’ve made here, there, and everywhere):
Remember when Obama so-famously said that the Cambridge police “acted stupidly”? He said that in response to the Gates incident in Cambridge. Anyway, that was in the summer of 2009. When the Massachusetts special election was held to replace Ted Kennedy in January 2010, guess which candidate got the Cambridge police’s endorsement? Yep, Scott Brown, the republican (well, sort of). And this despite the fact that his progressive democrat opponent and official poster-child for Obama Koolaid-slurping Martha Coakley has a husband who was retired from that same police department and still a member of that union. Don’t think those two things are related? Think again. And then look at what other insulting and/or thoughtless statements this president has made about other union members / groups. He’s burning bridges like a pyromaniac on crack, and it’s going to hurt him in 2012.
You’re right to be skeptical about Obama’s belief in the special relationship between the U. S. and Britain. He doesn’t believe in it. In fact, he actively undermines it at every turn. Surely you remember his staffer coming right out and saying that the president sees the UK as just the same as any other country in the world and that it shouldn’t expect special treatment. To Obama, Britain is as meaningful as [insert any country: for fun, spin a globe, close your eyes, and jab your finger on it].
The countries that he holds up, that he has shown through his actions are important to him are India (first state dinner, denied to the UK even though Brown was actually in Washington earlier), Mexico (another state dinner, speech to Congress about how America should deal with our illegal immigrant problem and borders), “Palestine” (not Israel, America’s actual ally), and on and on. The man is a disgrace. Always look at what he does, what he does is very very revealing.
Oh dear, we could do this all day. Let’s see, off the top of my head: Not only does Obama think there are 58 states (there are 50), that it’s perpetually 2008 (his best year), that “corps” is pronounced “corpse,” and that “Austrian” is a language, but he also thinks there’s such a thing as a hybrid SUV [correction: he said hybrid van], claimed that an entire town was destroyed and 10,000 people died (12 died, town still standing), said that we need to use our Iraq translators in Afghanistan (um, totally different language, of course), wants to bring “inefficiencies” to our health care system (well, that’s actually correct, but not what he meant), tried to make a case for government-run healthcare by extolling the wonders of UPS and FedEx over the government-run post office (the latter is in the red and “always having problems”), and let’s not forget how he began his speech the day of the Fort Hood terrorist attack by giving “shout outs” to his buddies. The man’s a complete dolt.
He also thought that America was founded 20 centuries ago, that Canada has a president, and that America is a democracy. I’d say Sarah Palin will do quite well against someone who doesn’t know the difference between the Gettysburg Address and the Declaration of Independence (nor what committee he sat on in the Senate). The man sees dead people, for goodness’ sake (claims he saw “fallen heroes” sitting in the audience at one speech). As I said, I could do this all day. The man’s a complete idiot.
I know there are more. What have I missed?
Apparently, I’m not the only one tired of this Sarah is stupid and BO is a genius meme. Thanks to Kerry for sending me a link to this video (and apologies for the foul language in it; obviously that’s by unhinged leftists suffering severe PSD):
