ATLANTA, November 13, 2013 — President Obama has seen his presidency crumble under the weight of scandal, mismanagement and public frustration.
His promise that people could keep their doctors and health plans if they liked them under Obamacare has proved false. The Affordable Care Act is unaffordable for millions facing cancellation notices.
Other hyper-ambitious policy goals are being blocked by a Congress that sees Obama as a dishonest broker, uninterested in getting things done.
Other grandiose policies have failed, most notably the 2009 stimulus package that stimulated nothing.
Obama’s foreign policy is in ashes as Iran moves toward nuclear bombs while Syria used chemical weapons on its own people with impunity.
Corruption scandals from Benghazi to IRS abuses hover. Obama repeatedly claims no knowledge of serious events when they go awry. Four Americans were murdered in Benghazi, yet Obama’s very whereabouts during the crisis remain shrouded.
Obama is disrespected abroad, and he is losing Americans’ trust and confidence at home.
Obama entered office under trying circumstances and improved nothing. Staunch supporters insisting he “saved us from another Great Depression” cannot say how. Drastic actions to stabilize America after the 2008 financial crisis were taken before he entered office. He lacks one single honest success.
He keeps speaking as more Americans tune him out.
While the left will never accept the truth, it is long past time to pose a theory.
Maybe Barack Obama is just inferior.
Let liberal skulls explode and leftist talking heads scream racism. The left obsesses over race, using it to prop up a man who entered office with a light resume of non-achievement.
No sentient individual would conflate pigmentation with inferiority. Some blacks are more than equal. Many blacks are exceptionally superior, including Doctors Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams and Benjamin Carson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and Colonel Allen West.
Obama is half-Caucasian. His white half seems every bit as below mediocre as his black part.
Obama’s story of failure is his ideology, not race. He has terrible ideas, and he implements those terrible ideas terribly.
Inferior. What other word describes a man not good at anything?
Those praising his campaigning abilities require clarification.
What other word describes a man not good at anything that matters?
He succeeded at something that personally benefitted him. What has he done to benefit the American people?
Even supporters are left to parrot excuses. Obama would have succeeded if not for various circumstances that would be unprecedented if they were not faced by every president before him.
Inheriting a tough situation is no excuse. Tough times got him the job to start. He was losing the 2008 election until Lehman Brothers burned. It is ludicrous for him to bemoan his lot in life when his very presidential existence rested on his ability to exploit human suffering and panic for personal gain.
His job was to govern. George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan governed without constant whining. They inherited messes and turned things around. People in many walks of life inherit bad situations and improve things. Herman Cain grew up black in the segregated South and became a brilliant turnaround artist. He turned losers into winners. That is what successful leaders do.
Average people plod along. Superior people lead. Inferior people fail and blame others for their own inabilities. A decade after the New York Times became the Jayson Blair Times, liberals still refuse to separate skin color from character content.
Americans are not interested in Obama’s navel gazing. They want results that never arrived despite America’s longest presidential grace period.
Liberals mercilessly speculate about Republican presidents, so let’s psychoanalyze Obama.
Maybe Obama took too many braincell-frying hard drugs as a youth. Illegal drug side effects existed before Obama, will exist after him, and cross all racial and ethnic strata.
Maybe Obama had awful teachers. He will not release his grades or college thesis. Leftist attack dogs dishonestly try to link this to his birth certificate. No claim of intelligence should be taken at face value. Nothing in Obama’s public record suggests a deep thinker or analytical mind. He often substitutes his own ideology for empirical evidence.
He publicly admitted to growing up lazy. Intellectual laziness dovetails perfectly with his well-known aversion to the work of governing.
This could be why everything he does fails.
Cash for Clunkers? Clunk.
Green energy? Solyndra. Billions wasted forever.
Obamacare? The disaster is only beginning. The world’s smartest man cannot get a website built in three years.
Liberals cling to the desperate notion of a superior or even capable Obama because puncturing his balloon punctures theirs. Ivory tower academics seeing him discredited face flawed thinking themselves. Maybe they are significantly less intelligent and useful to society than they thought. Maybe they overestimated Obama because they overestimated themselves. Maybe they are mediocre at best and inferior themselves.
There is no maybe about it.
A man without one meaningful success on the job is a failure. Zero percent success is an F-.
Those claiming failures really are successes have met their match with Obama. If he had one success, supporters would have touted it and been proven right.
Those in the real world understand that a man whose hobbies in Hawaii included beach-bumming and smoking marijuana would not become a nuclear physicist. Politics was his avenue because merit matters in corporate America. One can smile their way to the political top and speak well with teleprompters.
Yet eventually the man who never did anything had to actually do things that mattered to ordinary people. He did not and cannot succeed because he lacks the skills to succeed. He lacks abilities, aptitude, and an understanding of human nature and how things work. He understands nothing consequential. He is a community organizer who mishandled the American community and ran an administration that is completely disorganized.
The results speak for themselves.
He is the Chevy Volt of presidents who golfs frequently while his governing abilities require countless mulligans. Despite five years on the course of presidential life, he has never been or will ever be up to par.
He is just inferior.
