TIME Reporter: Obama’s Background
Lets Him ‘Think In More Complex
Terms,’ ‘Reach More Nuanced Positions’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/21/2013 11:39:06 AM

TIME Magazine reporter Jon Meacham joined MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Monday for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration. Both Meacham and Matthews compared Obama to President Ronald Reagan and asked if he can achieve a lasting legacy in his second term through compromise with his opponents. Meacham said that he thought so because, like Reagan whose formative experience in life came from being a labor organizer and an actor, Obama’s background is that of a college professor. Professors, Meacham said, are able to ‘think in more complex terms’ and ‘reach more nuanced positions.’

Comments:
This is excrutiating! It is truly horrifying how delusional morons like him are.

Complex for Obama means he dithers while America drowns in debt. His ´´nuanced´´ position got 4 Americans killed in Benghazi and who knows how many more in Algeria.

WHAT exactly IS Obama´s background?
The media is no different than the low information people Kimmel interviewed last week..the ones who were asked what they thought of Obama´s inauguration...they all had opinions...although it has NOT yet taken place..talk about stupid!
Dopey dishonest people.

Those who cannot do, teach.

Any hope of nuance or deeper insight is lost when an inability to perform in a real-world situation is established by both cliche and four years worth of failure.

"Complex" for Obama means 3 or more children sharing the stage with him. ("Val, do I have to know their names? Can´t I just hug them?)

"Nuanced" means the shout out to the Indian chief before mentioning the 13 dead and 30+ wounded at Ft Hood.

""Professorial" is holding a beer summit after falsely accusing a white policeman of being a racist for arresting a belligerent Professoe Gates.

Everyone is questioning how a 21 year old football player could possibly be duped by a fake girfriend.

HALF the county the been duped by a man with a FAKED past for the last 4 years!

Just the fact that Meacham said he was a professor is edvidence that even the elite fall for what they want to be true rather than what is true.

I wish someone would finally get to the bottom of who this Presient REALLY is with as much zeal as they have put into the fake girlfriend.

The individual calling himself Barack Obama was never a college professor or even an assistant professor. He was a part time instructor in a position that seems to have been created just for him in order to pad his resume and in which he failed to distinguish himself in any way.

This is simply disgraceful, slovenly, perhaps dishonest reporting. It is all too typical of what passes for journalism today.

The individual calling himself Barack Obama was never a college professor. Who, and what is he really? Inquiring minds still would like to know. This mysterious individual presumes to fundamental change the United States of America and to run background checks on all gun buyers. It is long past time to run a background check on him. Americans know very little about him that has been verified. Most of what they think they know comes from him and his supporters. He continues to keep almost all of the documentation of his entire life secret. He is hiding something.

As a retired professor, I will comment on Meacham´s position.
Yes, college professors can think in more nuanced terms. But the president was never a college professor.
He was an adjunct lecturer at the U. of Chicago law school, taught one special topics course in constitutional law. (I confess to having taught an occasional special topics course. Trust me, special topics courses are the fluff of the university)
The president was elected president of the Harvard Law School review, but never published an article! Nor did he publish an article while at the U. of Chicago. Both were affirmative action appointments, so that each school could point at him and say, "we have a negro here!"

"Obama is the smartest man in the world."

"How do you know that?"

"Because the guy from Time, and Chris Matthews, that braintrust at MSNBC, told me so!"

The same people who tell us that there is no God because of a lack of evidence, will believe Obama is the smartest man in the world, because of their faith in the democrat spinmeisters. No evidence required.

Which parts of his " you can´t make this stuff up " background ?
Was it his hunger for dog meat ?
Or his childhood pet , " Tata " the ape ?
Or was it the nanny who raised him as a young boy in Indonesia ?
The gay, transvestite Muslim man named " Turdi " who would sleep in the same bed as Barry ?
Turdi would arrive at the Soetero´s as a man and often leave
the house dressed in drag.
Was it having a mother with a man´s name ?
While American boys grew up playing Little League ,
Barry and Turdi amused themselves playing
with Stanley Soetero´s make up,

As #22 pointed out, Obama was never a professor. Meacham and Matthews know this, but choose to ignore facts since they are so enamored with Obama.

We might as well say he was dean of the U of Chicago law school. Lies, lies and more lies from the moonbat left.

House Republicans are quietly working to insert immigration legislation into the text of the Department of Defense authorization bill that would allow so-called DREAMers to obtain permanent legal residency by joining the military, Breitbart News has learned. The language, which if successful would mark the first effort by House Republicans to provide any form of amnesty since the GOP took control of the House in 2010, has set off a panic among top immigration hawks that the effort could open an immigration Pandora’s box, paving the way for broader legislation.

South Dakota Democratic Senate hopeful Rick Weiland declared Wednesday that the decision handed down in McCutcheon v. FEC regarding campaign finance laws “may be the worst decision made by any Supreme Court since the Dred Scott case reaffirmed slavery in 1857.” The McCutcheon decision lifts the aggregate caps on political donations, meaning that donors can give the maximum possible donation to every single candidate for federal office, if they so choose, instead of being required to stop giving once they hit a total sum.

He also said, “ I fear for Congresswoman Pelosi if she does not come to understand how gravely in error she is.” Last Thursday, March 27, Rep. Nancy Pelosi was

Jerry Moran (R-Kansas) wrote President Obama today to mark the first anniversary of the majority-rule adoption of the treaty by the UN General Assembly.

When an expectant mother visits her doctor for an ultrasound, the doctor invariably asks: Do you want to know the sex of your child? The Obama administration, however, does not believe an unborn child has a sex — even when a doctor sees indisputable physical evidence. Obama´s Office of Personnel Management has published what it calls "Guidance Regarding the Employment of Transgender Individuals in the Workplace." This document speaks of "sex" as something a person has "assigned" to them only after they make it through the birth canal. "Transgender individuals are people with a gender identity that is different from

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
