Krauthammer On Obama's Debate
Performance: "He Isn't Half As
Intelligent As He Thinks He Is"

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

"Look, people say, Obama was off his game. This is his game. If you take away a prompter, this is his game. He'll occasionally give a great speech, but if you look at him in his news conferences, which where you don't have a prompter and the president has more control, he gets to ask to decide who the questioner is and he gets to decide how long he talks, and what parts of an answer he'll give, he never does well. So this is who he is. I think people -- he's intelligent, but he isn't half

He's not even half as intelligent as you thought he was in 2008, Charles, and now it turns out neither are you.

I love to read anything Charles writes. He knows how to construct a sentence. Poster 4 should take a few lessons.

Let me put it another way (not to put too fine an edge on it): Obama really is as stupid as he looks.

The wages of affirmative action. He may not be as intelligent as he likes to think he is, but he's got plenty of sef-esteems.

The whole religion of "Liberalism" is built on an appeal to authority.

Like most religions one must be willing to believe what one is told to believe.

To permit ANY logic or evidence or scientific method into the equation just spoils the whole thing.

Since poster 6 addressed me so insultingly, I will break the rules and reply. Krauthammer was so enamoured with Obama's speaking ability, he forgot to check his credentials along with everyone else. He should have been exposing not admiring. You, it seems, would have agreed with Charles previously, because you are so enamoured with his ability to construct a sentence. We deserve better.

Next thing you know, Peggy Noonan will announce that Zero is not nearly as brilliant as she and Charles thought. Charles was pretty arrogant with some of the people that disagreed with him in '08. Pidgeons..........

People convinced they're really, really smart rarely, rarely are.

Even those who are really, really smart are net negatives in the world if they believe erroneous facts and destructive principles, and work to advance them; that's not a rarae circumstance. So "brainpower" in itself is not intrinsically "good" or "bad."

But Charles, why did you think it, even for a moment? Does a great line of BS just nullify all of your learning and your experience? I, who possess not as nearly as credentialied a brain as you, am so disappointed. Better late than never, though.

I don't know. I was highly "intelligent" in college and in my early to mid-20s, especially compared to my parents. Weren't we all? Sadly, I've gotten progressively dumber ever since. Experience and perspective will do that.

Obama lacks both. It showed.

All of a sudden, Obama had to deal with someone who really is intelligent (unlike McCain). Romney is a Harvard Law grad, too, and an MBA, too. Leaving aside affirmative action, Harvard Law School has among the stiffest admissions requirements of any school. If you didn't score at or near the top on your LSATs and if you didn't have a 4.0 or close, you won't get in. Obama (and Michelle) got passes for being black. Romney didn't.

The ability to spot a BS artist is perhaps not well understood. Some people have it, some do not - or not to a sufficient degree. Whatever the ability is seems to be relatively independent of age, education, formal intelligence and other factors. Highly intelligent, educated and seemingly sophisticated people can be flim-flammed just as easily as anybody else if they do not possess a working BS detector. People with working BS detectors can spot BS from afar, sometimes almost instantaneously. Those lacking such capacity seem oblivious to it and are vulnerable no matter how long and closely they are exposed to it.

Whatever else he is, Obama is a BS artist. It must be admitted that he is unusually talented at this. Nevertheless, there are those who identified him for what he was virtually the instant he appeared on the national scene. They could tell it in a matter of seconds or minutes at the most, merely from seeing him on TV. It stood out like a sore thumb for them. Every buzzer, bell, light, siren and warning indicator went off at the same time the first time they saw and heard him. Obviously BS detection is a primitive, sub-rational, instinctive faculty. It may be a function of brain structure. People without a functioning BS detector are like those born color blind or tone deaf. They just don't pick up what is often instantly apparent to others - and there is no way to explain or communicate to them what they are missing, for they do not realize and therefore will deny that they are missing anything.

Facebook removes my post about
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy
Fox News, by Todd Starnes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democrat: Voters ´Frustrated

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
