Bill Clinton on Obama: Not Ready to Lead




On CNBC on Friday, Romney complained that Obama has “been more focused on his perspective of his historic legislative achievements than he has been focused on getting people back to work.”

A president focused on historic achievements? Imagine that. Romney got at Obama’s problem: The Moviegoer prefers to float above, at a reserve, in grandiose mists.

As Maraniss recounts, Obama said he liked reading Hemingway because of Papa’s “integrity of grasping for those times, those visions, that are ones of true magnificence and profundity.”

Cook told Maraniss that she thought Obama’s desire to “play out a superhero life” was “a very strong archetype in his personality.”

But superheroes and mythic figures must boldly lead. Obama’s caution — ingrained from a life of being deserted by his father and sometimes his mother, and of being, as he wrote to another girlfriend,“caught without a class, a structure, or tradition to support me”— has restrained him at times.

In some ways, he’s still finding himself, too absorbed to see what’s not working. But the White House is a very hard place to go on a vision quest, especially with a storm brewing.

I'm not sure about converting to Mormonism.

Is this stuff true?

1. Mormon leadership supported the Nazis

2. Mormon leadership supports sexism

3. Joseph Smith stole his ideas from Greek Neoplatonic, Platonic, Helenistic, Esoteric, and Occult philosophies of Pagan sets living in ancient times.

4. Mormon beliefs are closely linked to Islamic beliefs

5. God didn't make men, men made Gods

6. Joseph Smith didn't have time to steal the last teachings of Heremes where it stated that in the pre-mortal life we are neither male nor female.

7. Mark Twain hated the Book of Mormon

8. The Mormon church has a lot of good people, but their leadership is inspired by he Lord of Lights and him alone. The Lord of Lights is Lucifer

9. Most of the miracles that Mormons claim come from God are actually on from social pressure to believe

10. If I convinced eight homeless people that I was a God, then the Mormon church leadership must believe that I am a God in the same way that we must believe the Book of Mormon to be true because eight people saw it; after tomorrow, I'll only need one more homeless man's testimony of my Godhood then I'll expect you to worship me.

11. Lastly, Mormons don't refute these arguments, instead they resort to personal attacks just like the pharisees.

I think I'm okay with a Mormon in the White House and Mormon school prayers, and I support Bishop Rmoney, but does anyone know if he has a home in Saudi Arabia where he can practice his religion freely?

yeah that's why the actual worst GW is campaigning for the republicans. NOT. They're too ashamed of him. His stains are still too fresh. Maybe tom delay can endorse romney on his way to prison. Where lots of republicans should end up.
