Not much news here that wasn't already known by everyone except those whose circumscribed lives have prevented them from having a sense of history. I don't believe America elected an ignoramus, just a socialist demagogue who is unfit to lead the U.S.
I offer his record to date as evidence.
Why bother? This is because real socialists say that President Obama doesn't come close to being a socialist. So what does that make you?
I took you off of ignore long enough to respond.
What it makes me, is entitled to my opinion. Jackass.
Regardless of the term, Obama deeply believes in central planning by the federal government rather than let the people make their own decisions. He and the federal bureaucracy think they can manage our lives better than we can. He thinks he knows what is best for us all. He calls it "fairness". Under his watch, the federal government has grown ever more powerful with more and more regulation of each of us. Individuals and companies companies can hardly make a decision without considering if this is allowed by the federal government. Free men, living in a free county can do great things, but this loss of freedom kills what is great about America.
Hear, hear, I have townie on my active list just because I need a laugh once in a while. Talk about jibberish, he last post is a classic.
I'm pretty sure Harvard doesn't award ignoramuses the title of magna cum laude, but you keep on thinking that if it fits your worldview.
Harvard has never made a mistake?
My first thought was "you're singing to the choir Canada" but this is a nicer way of saying it.
There is a difference between being ignorant and being stupid. Nobody has accused Obama of being stupid, quite the contrary I'm sure he's a very smart man. But he's certainly ignorant of a lot of things when it comes to being President of this country.
It is the classic example of "Those that can do. Those that can't teach."
Obama should have stuck to indoctrinating students at Harvard. He is a great disciple of Bill Ayers.
He has never done anything in the private sector or the real world and brings zero experience to the table.
I see it all the time - these kids fresh out of college with their academic awards, accomplishments and arrogance coming into my company. Then they go out into the real world working with our customers and either come to the realization that College only gives them cookie cutter solutions based on theory or they are fired.
It is what I like to call the difference in book smarts and common sense. Some things can not be taught - you either have it or you don't. The ability to think outside the box to critically analyze situations and provide the best solutions is something Colleges seem to not be teaching kids anymore. Colleges use to teach kids to question everything - that was what was great about it - challenge everything searching for better solutions. But, now days it seems they only teach them to question and challenge authority, government and religion.
Obama may have a lot of book smarts in certain areas, but he obviously doesn't have an ounce of common sense.
People shouldn't question their government??
Absolutely they should. I never said they shouldn't.
I am saying they should also be able to apply common sense to challenge and question more than just ideologies and theories.
There's also a difference between naivete in some areas and being an ignoramus. The latter refers to someone who is completely incompetent like Gomer Pyle or Homer Simpson. Here are a couple of definitions:
And, for good measure, from the Urban Dictionary:
Point being, I don't think Obama qualifies. Naive, potentially ignorant in some areas? Sure. An ignoramus? Hardly. I think it would be difficult to argue that Harvard has ever produced one of those as a complete lack of education seems to be a prerequisite.
Well played sir.
I've heard that, if you set up two computer monitors about a foot apart and put the Free Canada Press website on one and the MoveOn.org website on the other, and, if you drop a hamster in between ...
The hamster will explode.
If you think Obama is a socialist, you might have a misunderstanding of what socialism is.
I didn't call him a socialist, I called him a socialist demagogue. You might have a misunderstanding of what a demagogue is, hence;
A political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.
(in ancient Greece and Rome) A leader or orator who espoused the cause of the common people.
