Obama from a ‘pampered and cosseted elite of no achievement’

Obama is the first president who gives off the whiff he’s just doing it until something more commensurate with his talents comes along,” and all too typical of a kind of complacent pampered and cosseted elite of no achievement.

Consider Obama’s education: prior to hitting the big time in Democratic politics, he had little too show for it.

I’m a believer in elites, and I’m a believer in achievement. But consider the idea that a guy has a million bucks worth of education at Occidental, Columbia, Harvard Law, and he becomes a community organizer. He becomes a constitutional scholar who doesn’t actually teach anything. He has this charmed life. He’s just wafted upwards until a combination of circumstances gives him the ultimate waft in 2008, and becomes president. And he’s someone who, to use an old Rumsfeld line, "doesn’t know what he doesn’t know.”

Those qualities of Obama are something one might find in a college faculty lounge.

He has this kind of invincible ignorance, so that when something happens, he goes off and he flies in to Cairo and gives his usual speech, and he thinks "OK, that’s it, that’s the Muslim world taken care of, next.” And then when it all explodes and blows up in his face, he’s not even interested enough to try and find out what’s going on here.

It’s that perfect pampered, cosseted, invincible ignorance. And if you’ve ever been on an American college campus and just tried to plant a new thought in this sort of indestructible faculty-lounge group think, you’ll be very familiar with the way Obama approaches these things.

“I'm here with bells on.”

LESS THAN 200 PEOPLE ATTEND STEVIE WONDER’S PRO-OBAMA APPEARANCE IN CLEVELAND THIS MORNING: Organizational competence at its zenith, as spotted by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer:

Legendary performer Stevie Wonder this morning expressed his love for Cleveland during a get-out-the-vote rally at Cleveland State University.

His love went largely unrequited.

Fewer than 200 people showed up to watch Wonder perform a handful of his hits at the early voting event in support of President Barack Obama.

Most of the people had learned of the event just hours before the 9:30 a.m. start time. Some just happened to be in the area and followed the live music.

Lee Stranahan tweets,“More people are saying they are going to vote for Obama than will actually vote for him. Just watch. This will be consistent on Tuesday.” It’s stories like the one above — and similar reports such as this — that add support to that prediction.

To cover your ears and sing is one thing when a politician exaggerates or says something controversial but still relatively benign. It is something quite different when the comment is so crazy, so far-reaching, and so malicious that it should set off an alarm in the head of any rational American.

Such is a remark Obama made during the campaign and which was recorded by Joseph Farah of World Net Daily as well as Beck. Here is what Obama said:

We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.[Emphasis added]

What in the world could Obama mean? Is he imagining a squadron of racist goons like the New Black Panthers stationed on street corners, armed to the teeth? If so, how is that different from any other police state in the history of the world?

God help us all if Farah, Beck, and I are the only people scared to death by those words. As Farah notes,“there have been initiatives like this elsewhere—Cuba, the Soviet Union, China, Venezuela, North Korea. But has anything like this ever been proposed in a free country?”

It’s a great question. How is it that Joe Klein, Frank Rich, and other Obama cheerleaders, no matter how self-deluded, are able to read it and then turn in for a good night’s sleep?

The Democrats led Americans to the worst recession since 1929 via the Community Restoration Act, a liberal idea that every one should be able to own a home even if they couldn't afford one.Problem is weird things happen when you can't pay your mortgage.
For one thing nitwit, it's the Community Reinvestment Act. You're too stupid to know even the name of the legislation you're talking about. It's totally inane to suggest that a law passed 31 years before the housing crisis had anything to do with it. It likewise had nothing to do with forcing anyone to make risky loans. Section 802 (b) specifically states;
(b) It is the purpose of this title to require each appropriate Federal financial supervisory agency to use its authority when examining financial institutions, to encourage such institutions to help meet the credit needs of the local communities in which they are chartered consistent with the safe and sound operation of such institutions.
Got that moron? " consistent with the safe and sound operation of such institutions.”
The institutions that made the sketchy mortgages that caused the crisis were not chartered or regulated under the rules of the CRA.
You're an idiot.
